Because nothing says fun, amusement and good times for all the family like bible studies, there was Holy Land USA, a Christian tourist attraction filled with religious exhibits in Waterbury, Connecticut between 1958 and 1984. At its height, Holy Land attracted up to 40,000 visitors a year to the park.
Fascinating photos! The ruins of this incredibly tacky Christian theme park sort of resemble the religion itself, don’t you think? Of course the religion is still going pretty strong, but huge cracks have formed and the number of people turning or backing away from it has risen sharply in the past decade or so. If Christianity can’t adapt to modern culture and civilization, it’s going to end up like this theme park: a crumbling and broken relic of humanity’s past.
OK, I don’t know what prompted that little speech but whatever. Just look at the photos, will ya?
