Recession shocker: creationist museum can't raise the shekels to build the ark.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/creation-museum-evolves-hoping-add-life-size-ark-170347907.html

Come on, literalists! Ante up to hire those Amish carpenters, who undoubtedly (just like Noah) will get their families to do all the hard work.

3. Don't worry

I am sure they can get a few more tax dollars.

Should the state be in the business of funding private religious projects, even if they could boost the well-being of local economies? According to an editorial published yesterday in The New York Times, the Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority recently allocated more than $40 million in tax incentives for a planned expansion to the controversial Creation Museum: The Ark Encounter, a theme park designed to demonstrate the literal truth of the biblical story of Noah’s ark by featuring a full-size replica of the ark including live animals, was conceived by the same conservative Christian ministry that built the Creation Museum. Even Kentucky’s Democratic governor supports state funding for the project, arguing that it will bring 900 jobs to the area. Of course, as the editorial points out, “public money is not supposed to pay to advance religion.”

4. The state didn't give them any money, it gave them tax breaks.

Not saying it's right, just want to be clear on this.
