Public funds for M'Boro Bible park

Rep. Donna Rowland (R-Murfreesboro) has asked for an Attorney General's opinion on the proposed Bible Park in the Murfreesboro area.

Developers argue rather strangely that the park is not religious in the sense that anyone--religious or not--can visit the park. Um, the last time I checked, almost anyone can visit a worship service about anywhere in the state. I've certainly attended worship services in cases in which I was not an adherent of that tradition. Does that mean they're not religious?

The park will feature scenes of the Crucifixion, the "Rapture," etc.
