I'm sure there are a lot of opportunities where $37,000,000 of tax payer money would be able to help create 900 jobs. That much money could train (I'm guessing) 400 engineers... or build a factory. The fact that this is explicitly for a religious origination should automatically preclude the involvement of tax dollars. Can you imagine if this was for some sort of islamic equivalent?

But the scariest thing about this story is America's appetite for this nonsense. Honestly, I know it's a big country, and the South is...well... the South... but is there enough severely deluded people to keep this place going? It looks huge. And where does an institution that believes in unicorns get that kind of money from?
