In response to WBC's plans, Planting Peace created a "Remembering Robin" fundraiser for the benefit of St. Jude (the drive has already well surpassed its goal of $30,000).And now there's comedian and television personality Adam Hills' truly cathartic offer to ship the members of Westboro off to a better place: Iraq."If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life," Hills said on his UK television program "The Last Leg," "how about putting your money where your mouth is,[…]

  • Kentucky's Ark Encounter Theme Park Reportedly Won't Hire Gay Or Non-Christian Employees

    Kentucky's Ark Encounter won't open until 2016, but the theme park is already making headlines for reportedly requiring prospective employees to agree to a "statement of faith" that excludes homosexuality, among other stipulations. Daniel Phelps, the president of the Kentucky Paleontological Society and vice president of Kentuckians for Science Education, pointed to the apparent requirements in an Op-Ed for The Lexington Herald-Leader. "It is apparent that Ark Encounter is likely to discriminate against non-Christians," Phelps writes. "Moreover, Catholics, mainstream Protestant Christians and some conservative Christians who have different doctrinal beliefs are also unlikely to be hired."He adds:The ad has specific religious requirements for employment. These include a salvation testimony, a "creation belief statement" and a requirement that applicants agree with[…]
