"I was replying along the lines of IF Ark Park = religious, and therefore exempt, Then Viking wilderness dudes should apply for the same religious status in order to be exempt as well. I was more talking about the "spirituality" of being…"

Travis Spuhler replied to Regular Joe's discussion Next In Court: The Christian Student Job Applicant VS The Norse Viking Employer in the group The Great Debate
"As they seem to not discriminate who pays for their tours, I personally think that Spiritual would be the better word than religious.... But, if they were operating in the US, and the Ark Park got it's "exemption", then I would have…"

"I sort of agree... but then I also am of the belief that churches/religious bodies should not be completely tax exempt, with exception to any employment taxes. In the case of a "Noah's Ark Theme Park"... yeah, putting a cross on the…"

"Well, based on their original, "official" position, the company will not lose the "we didn't hire her" argument.... They might lose a harrassment case for the follow on comments/opinions though."

Will replied to Joshua Wolf's discussion Fraternal orders for young men?
"AFAIK, every fraternal order accepts young men.  Knights of Columbus accepts starting at age 18.  Freemasons, it's 18 or 21.  Elks and Moose, 21.  Oddfellows, 16.  Rotary, 18.  You have plenty of options."
