Atheist Ad Mocking Noah's Ark Park as 'Genocide and Incest' Center Rejected by Billboard Companies

Two billboard companies have refused to run an advertisement ridiculing the Ark Encounter, a Noah’s Ark-themed amusement park being built in Williamstown, Kentucky, according to the group that whose ad was rejected.

The atheist group Tri-State Freethinkers, which commissioned the advertisement, says it has been turned down by billboard companies Lamar and Event Advertising and Promotions LLC, despite $10,000 having been raised to fund the project. The proposed billboard would have critiqued the park by branding it, “Genocide and Incest Park: Celebrating 2,000 years of myths.”

"We tried with everyone we could think of, and these were [billboard] companies that originally were in agreement to do business with us," Jim Helton, the president of Tri-State Freethinkers, told ABC News today, speculating that fear of a scandal pushed the companies to drop the ads. "We're just looking for someone to take our money."
