A large percentage of the blog posts by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else — are about his opposition to gays. He seems to dislike them as much as he dislikes evolutionists — but in a loving way, of course.
A quick search at his website on the word “homosexual” turns up 871 posts. We always avoid those posts because they don’t interest us — although a bit of it crept into Hambo Is Going To Rescue Australia, when we quoted him claiming that the decline of creationism in Austrailia was caused by the gays. He said:
I’ve been saddened to read articles over the past number of months from Australian news sites reporting on radical changes taking place in that nation, largely due to the increased pushing of the LGBT agenda. … It’s a very small percentage of the population that is controlling the entire culture and forcibly trying to impose their anti-God worldview on people.
One might suspect that Hambo is obsessed with the issue — but he’s not prejudiced, except, perhaps, regarding those who don’t follow his view of the bible. He recently wrote something that demonstrates this. At the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), Hambo’s creationist ministry, he posted One Blood for Kids Now Available from Ken Ham. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Issues regarding so-called “race” and racism are swirling in our culture right now, and it’s vital that our children and grandchildren be equipped to think with a Christian worldview based on God’s Word. …. And I’m excited to announce the release of a brand-new resource that kids — and their parents — will love: One Blood for Kids.
No, it’s not about vampires. Hambo says:
[The title] comes from Acts 17:26 that states God created all people from “one blood” (from one man: Adam). Scripture is clear — we’re one blood, one race, one family, all descended from Adam and Eve.
That’s nice, in that would mean that all the different-looking people in the world descended from one couple who lived only 6,000 years ago. Oh wait — it’s worse than that. He tells us:
So why do we have different cultures and ethnicities around the world? This goes back to the division at the Tower of Babel (Genesis chapters 10–11) that separated the gene pool. Because the entire human population was divided and then spread out, we have different people groups today.
Wow — all that diversity, including Pygmies, Eskimos, Vikings, Japanese, and even Australian aborigines, are descended from one family that lived only 4,000 years ago. And we almost forgot the Neanderthals — see Hambo and His Neanderthal Relatives. They’re descended from Noah too. Amazing! He continues:
And that history, as recorded in the Bible, provides the answer to racism. You see, if we’re all descended from Adam and Eve, we all have the same problem: we’re sinners in rebellion against our Creator. And that means we all need the same solution: the Lord Jesus Christ who stepped into history as a descendant of Adam, or relative, to take the penalty of death that we deserve.
Yes, thanks to Adam & Eve, we’re all in this mess together. Let’s read on:
These are the answers that our culture — and our children! — need, especially in these tumultuous times. My new full-color book introduces kids ages eight through teens to the idea of the “7 R’s of Race”[The what?] Created Race, Fallen Race, Rescued Race, Divided Race, Saved Race, Lost Race, and Lamb’s Race.
Wowie — the “7 R’s of Race.”
Okay, that’s about it. And so, dear reader, this has been a good lesson for us. Despite what may seem like prejudice, not only against gays, but also, of course, evolutionists, you may be certain that Hambo is a good and holy man, totally free of base motives. His only concern is to save you from the Lake of Fire.
