I wanted to know what everyone thought of this idea that's recently popped up for Tennessee.
I think the idea of having a religious themed park is very nice... on paper. Having it really exsist is another story. I see many religious issues coming up with a FEW people (with that few being on a large scale). What do ya'll think?

I think there is an area like that in Florida (i think) called the Holy Land. I can't remember if it has rides or anything but it is basically a small version of the holy land where churches and stuff go.

I hope the planners of this park have watched The Simpsons!
"Blackman resident Al Demumbreum, who said he lives across from the proposed 240-acres Shelton farm site, said he’d rather have the theme park than 240 houses."
I bet he changes his tune if the park is built, lol.

This sounds about as exciting as being dragged to church when I was 7.

So it won't attract the same crowd Six Flags does. That's one thing in its favor already.

Or is it? Ever been to an amusement park on "Church Youth Day"?

i guess 'gay day' is out of the question. i think there are some more exciting fictional stories to build a theme park out of.

I'd rather go on Cheerleader Day...and you know how annoying that group can be! lol

^ Yeah but they at least look better and more appealing to me ;)
Haha no I'm not giving Patrick the finger
Tuesday, April 17, 2007 12:32 AM
...and not to me, which says a lot about why I'd choose cheerleaders over church youth ;)

I think a Bible Park is a great idea. Tennessee could use another amusement park anyway, and I think it's a pretty original theme for a park. Are there any other Christian based parks in the country besides Noah's Ark water park in Wisconsin?

^Noah's Ark a Christian park? Not really, sure its themed by an event in the bible, however no effort is made to "convert the masses" like these other Christian parks. Noah's Ark is simply just a great waterpark.

Maybe if we put our pennies together we could get a Islamic themed park across the street.

Really? You've got rape, incest, slavery, murder, mass genocide, natural disasters, threat of eternal damnation... How much more exciting can you GET?
(Granted, people selectively BELIEVE parts of that, but that doesn't make it any less exciting as literature...)

Seriously! Plus we really do need MORE religious stuff here in Tennessee. There's just not enough already!

I hope it does better than Holy Land. ( I thought Holy Land was closed???)

SafeHarbor is sponsoring its first Hard Rock theme park that is expected to open next year in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The Bible theme park is the first one proposed by SafeHarbor.
SafeHarbor: Promoting sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll...no, wait...promoting creationism, purity, family, and God.
But there is no better place to have this park.
Either there or Utah.
Thanks for another great season, VF!
