This is not one of our issues, but we’re going to blog about it to show you what goes on in the mind of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.
Hambo just posted this at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Gay Barbie? Couple Pushes for “Diversity” in Doll Sets. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
For nearly 60 years Barbie and Ken — the famous plastic dolls produced by Mattel — have been a pair. But a gay couple is meeting with Mattel in the hopes of changing that [link omitted]. This couple was unable to find a gay wedding doll set to give as a gift, so they made their own by buying a wedding set and an additional Ken doll, removing Barbie, and placing the Ken doll by the other Ken doll’s side. After they complained about a lack of “diversity” to Mattel, they secured a meeting with the toymakers in the hopes of helping them expand their doll line.
Why are we writing about this nonsense? Because Hambo has written about it, and he’s a significant force in the world of creationism. He says:
This is just another attempt to normalize gay “marriage” and other sexual perversions. Many of those in the LGBT community want to make it seem so normal — just another type of family or relationship — that the next generation won’t even bat an eyelash. And they’re becoming increasingly successful.
Hambo is really obsessed with this. He tells us:
As soon as you reject God’s Word, you’re left with moral chaos as everyone does what’s right in their own eyes [scripture reference]. I predict that in the coming years, we will see increasing attempts to normalize pedophilia (we’re already seeing these), polygamy (again we’re already witnessing this), and bestiality. And we’re also observing that the LGBTQ movement doesn’t just want the freedom to express their views, but to insist on acceptance by everyone — thus undermining freedom of religion and the free exercise of religion (guaranteed by the US Constitution) for Christians who build their thinking on God’s Word concerning marriage and sexuality.
Hambo doesn’t appreciate that the LGBTQ people are taking themselves out of the gene pool. He also wants the religious freedom to condemn and reject them. His tirade continues:
We cannot hide and shelter our children from sexual sin — including homosexuality and gay “marriage” — forever. Eventually, and probably sooner than we’d like, “it’s going to come up.” [Egad!] The culture is pushing the LGBT agenda in every way possible from curricula, to parades, to media, to anti-bullying campaigns, to apparel, and now even toys. They [children] will encounter this idea — are they prepared to think biblically about it?
Are the children prepared to think biblically? According to Hambo, it’s the only way to think — about everything. Let’s read on:
We need to be equipping our children with a biblical view of marriage and sexuality. We need to be teaching them apologetics so they can defend what they believe about marriage. You see, as Christians we start with a different starting point from the world, which bases its thinking on man’s ever-changing opinions. God’s Word — the revealed word of truth from our Creator — is our authority and that’s why we think so radically different from the world. And because we start with God’s Word, we understand that marriage was created and ordained by God [scripture references] therefore he alone has the authority to define what it is. And he has clearly defined it as between one man and one woman.
Is Hambo aware that people who don’t think biblically get happily married every day? Probably not. He drones on a bit more, and ends with this.
Our children and grandchildren are growing up in a very different world. We must equip them to think biblically and, no matter how commonplace these sexual perversions become, look at the world through the lens of Scripture, not culture.
And so, dear reader, the question for today is this: How long will it be before Hambo starts raising money for a Sodom & Gomorrah theme park?
