Ya’ think?

The countless Six Flags entertainment parks around the country get millions of tourists annually, but yet, this dazzling quote gets headlines, at least in the Daily News Journal in Murfeesboro, Tenn.:

“Wherever the Bible park eventually ends up, it will not be the last one,” said Kevin J. Wright, president of the World Religious Travel Association. “The market is too big.”

2.1 billion Christians in the world, and more than 80 percent of the U.S. claims Christianity, and THAT is the summary? “Too big”. Nice. I don’t know what makes me giggle more: that line or his title. You mean, there actually is a “World Religious Travel Association“? Who knew? I guess with every megachurch out there hosting a trip to Israel, you need an organization that can host coupons.
