They stressed the $175 million park will be non-denominational
Mayor Don Fox said, "So this is not a religious park per se, this is an authentic historical rendering of the Holy Land and the Bible."
So these asshats are more worried that Baptists and other breakaway churches are going to be offended by it than the people who live here who are non-Christians. I find it incredibly hilarious that he says its "an authentic historical rendering of the Holy Land and the Bible" and the news site shows example renderings of what the park plans - a photo of the parting of the Red Sea. This is beyond ludicrous.
The mayor is probably a young Earth Creationist who doesn't believe in dinosaurs and actually believes the Red Sea was parted! Actually believes that the flood happened.
Hopefully the town of Lebanon will have elected some more rational people to their city council, people who don't believe in the talking snake. Council members who at least will vote for the people instead of voting because they believe in an invisible man in the sky who sent a pillar of fire to separate the Red Sea.
