Kentucky Withdraws $18 Million in Tax Breaks for Noah's Ark Project
Concerned that the project will promote religion in violation of the separation of church and state provisions of the U.S. Constitution, the state of Kentucky has retracted approximately $18 million in tax incentives for the proposed Noah's Ark theme park in Northern Kentucky.
Ken Ham's Answers in Genesis, the group behind the $172.5 million project, is now considering a federal lawsuit challenging the decision, according to The Courier-Journal.
Answers in Genesis had applied for and was granted preliminary approval to participate in a state tax-incentive program which would have allowed them to keep 25 percent of the sales tax collected at the theme park for 10 years, amounting to more than $18 million....
By saying that Christians cannot witness to their faith at the Ark Encounter is simply a ploy to shut it down. As Ken says it won't work. It won't work legally morally or logically. And AIG won't let that happen.

Thanks brother, I just listened to it and it was very informative. Although I am not very familiar with AIG, I hope they are successful in their endeavor. Our country sure is changing and it is changing very very quickly.
Barry from Ky., they do plan to continue in spite of lack of state funds, [URL=http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/12/11/us-usa-religion-ark-idUSKBN0JP06H20141211]]] Kentucky drops tax incentives for planned Noah's Ark theme park[/URL], though they really haven't given up on state funding, perhaps. This can be seen from the Reuters news article.
Kentucky was all in for this expansion project. It's bringing millions to the local economies and around 900 jobs to a somewhat depressed area. They started getting more and more grief from atheist groups and finally when they found that the project would discriminate in it's hiring the state pulled the plug. I just hope the Ark can continue with out this incentive.
Bruce Malone has a video The Red Record http://www.searchforthetruth.net/videos/
The Delaware Indians have a detailed record of their ancestry extending back to the origin of humanity. An original document was given to a medical doctor in the earlier 1800â€™s, translated by a linguist genious over a twenty year period before the civil war, and essentially lost for the next hundred years, resurfacing in the last few decades. This document reveals an astounding confirmation of the Biblical account of early earth history â€“ including creation, the entrance of death, and the worldwide flood.
The lecture includes intriguing references to the post flood ice age, and other details of earth history while recounting the discovery, the translation, and the preservation of this remarkable, yet little known, Native American document. The Red Record also provides a fascinating confirmation of the Biblical model for ice age mysteries â€“ such as why mankind traveled into North America and how millions of woolly mammoths became â€śquick frozenâ€ť in the Siberian and Canadian tundras
American Indian records such as http://www.rae.org/pdf/sanilac.pdf give lots of points in favor of the FLOOD being true history.
