In a scathing editorial today, the Lexington Herald-Leader blasted Answers in Genesis and Ken Ham who, yesterday, were denied tax incentives worth more than $18,000,000 because of their discriminatory hiring practices.
Why does God need so much taxpayer help?
Does God need to be defended with the demagogic language AIG and its founder Ken Ham use in the holy war against “intolerant liberal friends,” “secularists,” “Bible-scoffers,” and, the most telling, “agitators outside the state?”
Apparently, in AIG’s world, if this could just be settled at home among Kentuckians there’d be no problem giving a whopping tax break to a business that asks job applicants to profess that homosexuality is a sin and the Earth is 6,000 years old.
Perhaps Answers in Genesis should give up thanking God that intolerant liberals “can’t sink this ship,” and ask the deity instead whether it can be built without more government handouts.
I wouldn’t feel too bad for Ken Ham, though.
Noah seemed to manage just fine without government handouts.
