More than 100 protest against proposed Bible park

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- More than 100 people rallied against a proposed Bible-themed amusement park near Murfreesboro and have scheduled several more protest.

The group protested in the parking lot of Blackman United Methodist Church on Saturday, asking friends and neighbors to speak out against the proposed park and show up at park meetings in the coming months.

The developers have identified an area west of Murfreesboro near Interstate 24 as the location to build the 200-acre Bible Park USA. The site is located about 35 miles southeast of Nashville.

The park is expected to attract 1.3 million visitors a year and residents are concerned about traffic and noise.
