This was shaping up to be the worst weekend for news we’ve ever seen, but then we spotted what may be the story of the century. As you would expect, it’s at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), the creationist ministry of 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 just posted this: AiG Attends National Day of Prayer Leadership Summit. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
We were thrilled to be able to sponsor the National Day of Prayer Leadership Summit, which met October 29–30, 2018, at Cross Church in Rogers, Arkansas.
If Hambo is thrilled, so are we. Then he says:
The gathering included the 8 regional directors [of what?] for the US, as well as representatives [of what?] from all 50 states.
What an impressive gathering! Hambo tells us:
The mission of the National Day of Prayer leadership is to mobilize unified public prayer in America in every town, every city, and every county.
Wow — all that supernatural power mobilized at the same time! He continues:
The Leadership Summit was characterized by heart-felt worship, gospel-centered preaching, and sincere prayer on behalf of the nation.
The mind boggles! Let’s read on:
We’re thankful we were able to be there with a booth promoting the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum.
Why? All those holy people in attendance should have already had lifetime passes. Another excerpt:
Dr. Ronnie Floyd, President of the National Day of Prayer, shared the very timely theme for the 2019 observance: “Love One Another” — “Love one another, just as I have loved you” [scripture reference].
Very nice. Hambo’s post ends with this:
The National Day of Prayer is Thursday, May 2, 2019. You can learn more about this event at [link and scripture quote omitted].
And so, dear reader, if you felt a disturbance in The Force during that meeting, now you know the cause. Hambo should have warned us in advance, so we could have been prepared.
