Anti-Ark Billboard Campaign Is Proposed

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.

  2. Hambone insists “…thank God you can’t sink this ship”. Well, no, but if you made an actual ship designed as the holy bubble describes, I’m pretty sure it would sink without any help. And if the sky fairy ever does cause a world-wide flood, you’re out of luck on that ark, anchored soundly into the ground in Kentucky.

    I am just glad you posted something new – seeing Mary Lou’s face pop up every time I open the page was taking years off my life….

  4. michaelfugate says: “seeing Mary Lou’s face pop up every time I open the page was taking years off my life….”

    What? She’s a beautiful creationist woman! You must be one of those evolutionist pre-verts.

  5. Possibly some of Ham’s admirers will reach out and deface these billboards, or Ham might sue on grounds of maybe religious discrimination & intolerance, or maybe the KY legislature and governor will pass a bill making Ham’s religion off-limits to this anti-christian group.

  6. I fear it highly likely that they will have difficulty finding a billboard company that will run their ads. I hope that I’m wrong.

  7. That’s one point I’ve always ask xtians and they never answer well…if incest is so bad then why is the buyBull full of gawd approved incest?!?!?! And the same for abortion!

    If there are reasons for God to do things which are forbidden for people – to kill and take property is not murder or theft – then how do we say that God is not permitted to mislead us (“lie” if a person did it)?

    The Freethinkers forgot to add “inbreeding.” If only seen humans were left alive after the Flood, it wouldn’t be long before their descendants were riddled with genetic diseases.

    Hey, maybe that’s why nobody lives hundreds of years anymore, as the Bible says was routine before the flood. Maybe it accounts for Ken Ham and his ilk, too.
