Ken Ham in this case is right. The government needs to be neutral. If a Mickey Mouse based theme park would have qualified for government subsidies as part of a state program intended to attract tourism and business development (i.e. tax revenue and jobs), then so too should a Noah's Ark based theme park.

I have to disagree with you. If Disney was using his theme park to convert people to becoming Mouselim (see what I did there?), then he would not be eligible for tax incentives either. This is the point that Lynn made, this is not a "for profit" park, but rather a "for prophet" park.

One could make an argument that Ham's sole purpose is to make money, I couldn't argue that, but the stated purpose of Answers in Genesis is to bring people to the nailed one.
