Check out the Epic of Gilgamesh if you're not familiar with it.

how did someone get the right to use funds from a municipal bond offering - the local taxpayers - to build something that is avowedly religious?

I think the Noah's Ark is being built at the Creation Museum, which I think might be a tourist attraction.  It could be argued that it brings money to the area.

Good question.   Is the Creation Museum jointly owned by the City of Louisville?

So do strip clubs but nobody is arguing they should be provided bond money.

Well, strip clubs tend to attract criminal elements sometimes, I doubt that they have had that kind of problem with the visitors to the Creation Museum.  I went to their website, and it sounds like it is quite an attraction - like an amusement park with lots of activities.  Sounded kind of fun!

The private religion-affiliated (Christian Church Disciples of Christ) college in my area got the county to issue bonds to build their dorms a few years back, and we found that offensive. I oppose issuing gov't bonds to benefit a private entity, religious or not.

I'm sure it will bring some money in, but that doesn't justify spending public money to fund a private religious building.

That would make them so-called private activity bonds.  The interest on these is probably fully tax-exempt because they're probably treated as qualified 501(c)(3) bonds.

Mueller is a Republican

Well if the government was involved with strip clubs there would be no criminal element!  Just look at how honest the government is.

Anything's possible, but the details of the Noah story are highly improbable.
