On slow news days, we can usually count on something entertaining from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia, famed for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG) and for the mind-boggling Creation Museum.
Ol’ Hambo just posted this on his blog: Religious Symbols Attacked—Unless They’re Secular Ones! Ah yes, those satanic secular symbols. Hambo is furious again. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Secular groups are becoming increasingly aggressive in trying to remove any Christian symbols from the culture in America. They are intolerant of any religion but their own!
Yeah, yeah. That which is secular is — according to ol’ Hambo — an alternative religion. So what’s he complaining about this time? He tells us:
I’ve blogged before about several of these instances when Christian symbols — like nativity scenes or an ark-related display — were removed from public places.
Yes, that’s when we wrote You’re Either For Ken Ham or Against Him. It was about a Bible-themed display in a public park in Delaware. Let’s read on:
One of these secular groups is also behind the recent attacks on Ark Encounter that resulted in the state of Kentucky unlawfully discriminating against us because we are a religious group.
It’s a dirty rotten shame. A creationist theme park isn’t allowed to get millions in tax rebates from the state. Hambo continues:
Well, according to the Christian News Network, a secular group called the American Humanist Association (AHA) is “now raising funds to erect a statue in a courthouse lawn of Clarence Darrow.” Reportedly, this group wants the statue placed on the lawn of the Rhea County Courthouse in Dayton, Tennessee — the very courthouse where Clarence Darrow defended evolution in the famous 1925 Scopes trial.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Here’s more:
Groups like the American Humanist Association are known for aggressively campaigning for the removal of any religious — especially Christian — symbol from public places, and yet they apparently want what is basically a secular symbol of evolution and agnosticism placed in a public place. So, according to the AHA, religious symbols are apparently unacceptable — unless they promote their religion!
Let us all bow our heads and pray to Clarence Darrow. One more excerpt:
Why are these groups really so adamant that Christian symbols be removed? Because they know in their hearts that God exists, but they are fighting against Him and suppressing that truth in unrighteousness [scripture reference].
Hambo has more to say, but that’s the guts of it. We suspect that he understands the concept of separation of church and state, but he doesn’t like it — not when it applies to his religion. That’s typical of all theocrats. Sorry, Hambo, but that’s the way it is.
