This should be fun. A group we never heard of, Tri-State Freethinkers, is planning a billboard campaign opposing the “replica” of the Ark being built by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia.
We learned about this from a website we’ve never visited before, the Inquisitr, which describes itself as “an internationally recognized news website read by more than 40 million unique visitors each month.” They have this news article: Genocide And Incest Park’ — Ken Ham’s Ark Encounter Facing New Billboard Protest. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Ken Ham’s Ark Encounter has already faced a few obstacles. Last year, he was denied certain tax breaks afforded by the state of Kentucky to tourist attractions, when he demanded the right to hire only employees who agree with his religious views. He has consistently spoken in defense of his project, and maintained that it can’t be taken down.
For instance, in late 2014, Ham produced a billboard campaign for the Ark Encounter, declaring the following. “To all of our intolerant liberal friends: thank God you can’t sink this ship.”
We already know that. Here’s the news:
Now, though, the Ark Encounter is the subject of another billboard campaign — this one by a group called the Tri-State Freethinkers, which represents atheists and non-religious individuals in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana. The group calls the story of Noah’s Ark one of “genocide and incest,” and declares it “immoral and highly inappropriate as family entertainment.”
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Let’s read on:
Accordingly, they’re planning to erect billboards along state routes and interstates, bearing an image of Noah’s Ark, with the following words.
Genocide and Incest Park
Celebrating 2000 years of myths
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! The remainder of the article is mostly about fund-raising, so we’ll stop here. We can’t wait for Hambo’s reaction.
