What nincompoop at the Cincinnati Zoo thought it was a good idea to get involved with Ken Ham's affront to all things intelligent and scientific? Anyone that had anything to do with approving this should be out on their assess tomorrow and looking for work.

And leave it to Ham, the P.T. Barnum of creationism, to arrange this. He had to know it wouldn't last, and that it would scare up business for him and allow him to scream "censorship" as if he actually had some sort of standing in the scientific community.

Agreed. Most likely he was looking for a way to validate his fairytale as science and then claim he is being wrongfully persecuted for his religion. FPS (Fundie Persecution Syndrome). "I'm being attacked because I'm a Christian". He had to know that educated people would complain about the pseudo-science he presents, as if it was real science. The guy is a joke, even among mainstream Christianity.

(Rom 1:19 [KJV])
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.

(Rom 1:20 [KJV])
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made,[even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

(Rom 1:21 [KJV])
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

(Rom 1:22 [KJV])
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

And I knew a hooker that used to quote scripture to justify and sanction her 'work'. There is something in the good book for everyone!

The concept of the temple or sacred prostitute existed for millenia in religion before the rise of the current misogynistic and gynophobic western triad of judaism, christianity, and islam.

Not soon enough. There is a reason it is in Hillbillyville, KY, no place else would allow it. Just more ammo for people who think Kentuckians are a bunch of dumb rednecks.
