Ark Encounter Park on Eastern Standard

Jun 27, 2016

A new biblical-themed amusement park is set to open July 7th in Grant County, but some Kentuckians believe that the tax breaks the park is receiving violate the separation of church and state. A much-anticipated full scale Ark will be the center of the park as well as zip lines and other attractions.

 


 

Jay Hall from Tourism, Arts, and Humanities for the Commonwealth joined us in the studio for the Eastern Standard discussion on the opening of the Ark Encounter Park.

Ken Ham, President of Answers in Genesis will be joining us live via Skype for the show; as well as Reverend Barry Lynn, Executive Director of Americans United. Jay Hall from Kentucky's Tourism, Arts, and Humanities will be live in the studio.

 

We’re interested in your questions and comments on the park before and during the show at wekueasternstandard@gmail.com.  You can leave a voice message at 859-622-1657 or call in when you tune in for EST Thursday morning from 11 to noon on 88.9 WEKU.
