This is a good one from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. Ol’ Hambo is famed not only for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG), but also for the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum, and for building an exact replica of Noah’s Ark.
In addition to his other magnificent qualities and accomplishments, it now appears that Hambo is the world’s most tolerant man. His article at the AIG website is Tolerant . . . Of Only Those Who Agree With You? We’ll give you some excerpts with bold font added by us, and Hambo’s scripture references omitted. The opening paragraph clearly states his position:
Christians, like myself, who start with God’s Word often hear things like, “You can’t say gay marriage is wrong — that’s intolerant!” Secularists who claim I’m intolerant for saying gay marriage is wrong are intolerant of my position based on the Bible. Those secularists who claim to be tolerant will be intolerant of positions they disagree with and often intolerant of the person who holds them. [Bold font in Hambo’s post.] This isn’t tolerance at all! It’s a false definition of tolerance that tolerates only those who agree with them.
Got that? The intolerant person is you, dear reader! Then he says:
Why is secular tolerance so intolerant? Well, the Bible makes it clear there is no neutral position: “He who is not with Me is against Me” [scripture reference]. Secularists can’t be neutral — neutrality is a myth … . That’s why they are so intolerant — they aren’t neutral! They are actively opposing Christ.
It’s perfectly clear! After that he tells us:
Secularists are opposed to Christ — as is everyone who rejects Him — because they have an entirely different religion. Evolution, the foundation of the secular worldview, is a religion based on man’s fallible word — man’s blind-faith religion to try to justify rebelling against the Creator God.
How well he understands you, dear reader! Ol’ Hambo continues:
It’s not a matter of whether one is religious or not but which religion one adheres to. Ultimately there are only two religions — that of God’s Word and of man’s word. The spiritual battle raging around us is actually a battle between these two religions and it started in Genesis 3.
For those who don’t know, Genesis 3 describes the Fall of man because of the disobedience of Adam & Eve. This is the end of Hambo’s brief but powerful post:
As believers, we need to remain committed to our starting point — the infallible, unchanging Word of God as we boldly share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Now, at last, you understand. The Inquisition, witch burnings, and the creationists’ war against science are necessary. Those with Hambo’s view of things are tolerant, and you, dear reader, are not. Now go forth, wiser than you were before.
