(replying to Steve Simms, who suggested that money spent on building two Bible theme parks would be much better spent on inner-city Christian ministries and helping the poor)
Steve Simms... what if we just took all business profits and put half that money to inner-city missionaries? Then you could be Barack Obama! That's just as dumb an idea as yours. An individual has a right to build a business, make a profit and decide ON THEIR OWN how much, if any, of that profit will go to inner-city missionaries or anywhere else.
I wish I understood why liberals have such a problem with a business making money. When a business makes money, liberals get jobs. Everybody gets jobs, even if you're evil and make $100,000 a year or more! If liberals have such a problem with how much money a business makes, they should go start their own business, make scads of money, and give half of it to inner-city missionaries or, like George Soros, to every socialist political organization they can find. If they want to hand over their profits to the government or whomever, that's their choice. But it's a mandate, not a choice, to dictate to any business that it has to give up more of its profit to the government!
Like what Obama and Democrats want with the oil companies. Does anyone honestly think that's going to make Exxon lower the price of a gallon of gas? If you do you need to pull your head out of your butt. All it will do is cause thousands of layoffs to make up for the lost revenue.
If someone wants to build a Bible park, we ought to applaud them for wanting to spread the Word of God and trying to restore some morals to a nation that is increasing becoming void of them.
