Six Flags Over Jesus Ducks Property Tax

A Florida judge has ruled in favor of a Christian theme park seeking an exemption from property taxes.

The Holy Land Experience in Orlando is operated by a nonprofit, nondenominational Christian ministry called Zion's Hope, which is devoted to converting Jews to Christianity.
In her ruling, the judge said Zion's Hope is using The Holy Land Experience "to spread what it considers to be God's word."

The park features scenes from ancient Jerusalem and biblical settings complete with costumed characters.

The $16 million, 15-acre park opened in 2001.

This is just the beginning. I can't wait to see what will happen when other churches begin building their own theme parks. Perhaps a radical Islamic group will open a Gitmoland. Madonna will offer up Kabbalahpalooza Park. And of course, we can anxiously await the coming centerpiece of the Church of the Sub Genius, BobDobbia. All far from the clutches of those confiscatory liberal property taxes paying for fire and police departments, roads schools, etc.
