    I still say Japan leads the world in having the most bizarre tastes/culture ever.
    And they don't have to even touch religion to get their bizarreness.

    "We were given tremendous promotion by the fact that there were a few voices that didn't want to see us open the facility," Rosenthal said. "Consequently, the media got wind of that and I wound up being on most of the networks. Good Morning America, Good Night America, Good Afternoon America, The O'Reilly Factor. I had people coming from Russia, from Israel, from South America, from Europe. Out of that event we received what had to be many millions of dollars worth of publicity."

    When will people learn that controversy sells, and that if you want something to go away, loudly proclaiming it to be the scum of the Earth will only generate free publicity?

    I'm not saying the park should go away. If people want to waste their money and scare their kids with such over-the-top crap, that is their right. PT Barnum was 100% correct.

    Did you see the picture of the bloody Jesus walking around the park?

    The Bible isn't exactly kid friendly (then again neither is Shakespeare but a Shakespeare park would also be bizarre).

    Truth is strange than fiction!

    "Audience members are encouraged to participate. Jesus walked among them with a wireless microphone, calling children and picking one up."

    When I was about 9 I saw my first crucifixion statue in the Basilica of Notre Dame in Montreal. I was terrified and sickened by it and never forgot it. I am amazed that people would actually bring kids to this park to watch a renactment of Christ being tortured.

    I'm surprised the Atheists haven't shut them down yet.

    Why should they? If anything this helps prove their point and cause.
