Holy Land Experience free day is basically your only chance to get your tax money's worth out of the park

The Holy Land Experience only offers free admission one day a year as part of a sweetheart deal cooked up by religious zealot Daniel Webster back when he was a state senator. The deal exempts HLE from paying property taxes and negates the significant portion of back taxes it owed beforehand. So if you care about things like the separation of church and state, or corporations paying their fair share, it’s basically your civic obligation to get as many of your friends together to chug wine (canonically Jesus’ favorite drink) in the parking lot and get thrown out of the park for hitting on the Big J.C. Because the only way the Trinity Broadcasting Network is going to pay those taxes on that prime piece of real estate is if it’s too much of a pain in the stigmata to run the free admission day every year. Do your duty.

10 a.m. Thursday; The Holy Land Experience, 4655 Vineland Road; free; holylandexperience.com
