Hambo & Ray Comfort — The Dynamic Duo

You probably know who Ray Comfort is. The former street preacher is best known for his starring role in Ray Comfort’s “Banana video”.

And of course you’re familiar with Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. 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 known as Ark Encounter.

It shouldn’t surprise you that Hambo and Comfort are friends. In fact, we posted this two years ago: Ken Ham & Ray Comfort in the Ark, Tonight. But we weren’t prepared for Hambo’s latest post: Who is “Banana Man?” Discover the True Story in The Fool. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

Are you hesitant to share the gospel because of what people might think? Then watch the gripping story of “Banana Man” as told in The Fool. This movie is the newest release from Ray Comfort of Living Waters [Comfort’s website], and it’s available for download before its release on YouTube next year.

That link takes you to the trailer of Comfort’s “gripping” movie, which will be “released” on YouTube, but apparently not in theaters. Hambo says:

The Fool tells the story of how Ray Comfort became atheists’ favorite “celebrity atheist” [What?] after Richard Dawkins gave him the humiliating nickname “Banana Man.” But this amazing true story doesn’t end there — God used Ray’s humiliation to open doors, allowing millions to hear the message of the gospel. [Ooooooooooooh!] It’s a gripping story that’s sure to encourage you to boldly share the gospel with others.

Amazing! Comfort embraced the humiliation and continued to preach. What a guy! Hambo tells us:

As with all of Living Waters’ productions, The Fool will be available on YouTube in early 2019 so you can freely watch it and share it with others. But you can download the film now before it debuts on YouTube, giving you early access and helping support the ministry of Living Waters, covering some of the costs to produce this film.

What an opportunity! Not only can you see the film now — you can also send money to Comfort. Hambo continues:

Featured throughout The Fool are behind-the-scenes interviews with leading atheists, such as Lawrence Krauss, and the true story of Ray’s encounter with atheist Penn Jillette. I urge you to see this film. It’s encouraging, equipping, and inspiring.

Wow — Comfort had interviews with atheists! He’s so brave! Let’s read on:

And if you’re an atheist Living Waters is offering a special discount on the download! I encourage you to watch this video and discover the true story of “Banana Man.”

Comfort is giving a discount to hell-bound atheists! Do you have the courage to download the film, dear reader? Hey — hold on — Hambo’s post ends with even more news:

And you can meet Ray Comfort, EZ Zwayne, and Mark Spence from Living Waters at the Ark Encounter’s new Answers Center, for the Answering Atheists conference [link omitted] over Easter week/weekend 2019. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to not only meet and hear AiG speakers but Ray Comfort and many others as well. Ray will be preaching at our special Easter morning sunrise service. And your conference pass is a seven-day pass with unlimited visits to the Creation Museum and Ark, including parking for both. For further information, visit the event page [link omitted].

Your Curmudgeon is thrilled that Hambo and Comfort have found each other, and have forged such a close bond. Verily, it’s a match made in Heaven.

  1. There’s nothing quite like God humiliating his devoted followers to get the message of the gospel across. Now that Stanley Kubrick has shuffled off, a new movie from Ray Comfort has become the equivalent cinematic “event”, even if it’s only on YouTube.

    “How can you have a circus without a clown?”

    You can’t, clearly. But you can add another clown to keep audiences doubly amused.

  2. Wow…. Xians love a good persecution story, don’t they?

    Will we be able to watch it on YouTube WITHOUT giving him ad revenue? That’s the only way I’d watch it.

  3. Calling Kent Hovind. Calling Kent Hovind. Message for you from Ken Ham.

  4. “God used Ray’s humiliation to open doors, allowing millions to hear the message of the gospel.”

    That god is *extremely* fond of humiliating its followers 100% of the time.

  5. tedinoz, Kent isn’t listening at the moment. He is too busy defending the possibility of a legal action by Viacom for breach of its trade marks.

    Viacom have already forced Kent to take down half a dozen videos from his YT channel and worse may be to follow.

    Please pray for Kent during this difficult time. Or not.

  6. Kent potentially in violation of the law again? Hallelujah!

    When it comes to schadenfreude, hell, I’m a believer!

    Millions heard his message … And how many conversions?

  8. “how many conversions?”

    You’ll have to be more specific since it is likely that some of those became atheists. “Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived.” Isaac Asimov

  9. Holding The Line In Florida

    Verily say I. Put on the hip waders if you attend. The Drool shall run deep!

  10. ChrisS, it is not thought that Viacom is actually pursuing Kent but, for the moment, Kent thinks it is. Even better.

    I’m always amused that Ray feels the need to attach himself to famous people. Most recent was Penn Jillette and Lawrence Krauss. Ray likes to claim Richard Dawkins named him “Banana Man” despite the fact it was three years after the video was posted.

    “But you can download the film now before it debuts on YouTube, giving you early access and helping support the ministry of Living Waters, covering some of the costs to produce this film.” The only cost was someone watching Youtube to edit other peoples videos, a lot of Youtubers had parts of their videos used for the commercial gain of Ray comfort.

    “Wow — Comfort had interviews with atheists! He’s so brave!” He went to the Reason Rally in June 2016, just to harass people like Lawrence Krauss and Penn Jillette to pad out his film “The Atheist Delusion” that he released in July 2016.

  14. “Verily, it’s a match made in Heaven.” Sounds more like a bromance, and I seriously doubt either is going to heaven (or the other “h” place).

  15. Well, Ol’Hambo and Banana Ray doing their act in Heaven (or any other place) plus taken seriously turns it innto the other “H” place anyway.
