Can't They All Lose?

Some portion of the amusement-park-attending public wants tilt-a-whirls painted to glorify Jesus, and this demand begets competition:

Nashville could have two Bible theme parks thanks to a developing rivalry in Middle Tennessee.

The competition comes as The Holy Land Experience plans an expansion from its Orlando base to Hendersonville headquarters of Trinity Music City -- even as Bible Park USA, which has been attempting to buy land outside Murfreesboro continues its efforts to find a site. But some observers have questioned whether there is sufficient interest to support any new amusement park, the Nashville Tennessean reported Monday.
Baby Reason cries every time a new Bible-themed amusement park opens.

Does this mean when the "Holy Roller" jumps its track and severs somebody's foot or head it's God's will? The faith-based lack of lawsuits could keep insurance premiums way down and the savings be passed on to Jesus-Joe at the admission booth. (Don't be a spoil-sport, Reverend, you can always raise the price of "Heavenly Hotdogs").

Jehovah's judgement and consumer fun - a beautiful combination.

(To the clean-up crew: Just think of the glorious overtime come "Gay Day"...)
