A large percentage of the articles at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG) are about LGBTQetc issues. We almost always ignore such posts because they don’t interest us. But AIG is 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, and he can write about anything he likes.
Anyway, we found something about ol’ Hambo at Fox News. Their headline is Noah’s Ark replica lit up green to show support for fight against coronavirus in Kentucky. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Kentucky is showing support of biblical proportions for those affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The 510-foot-long Noah’s Ark exhibit, 40 miles south of Cincinnati, was lit up with green after Gov. Andy Beshear called for Kentuckians to unite against the virus and show compassion. “Today was tough for Kentucky,” the Democratic governor tweeted March 31. “Tonight, let’s light our homes green to honor those we’ve lost and commit to working even harder tomorrow to beat COVID-19.”
Green is the color of compassion? We didn’t know that. As for the ark, our readers know Hambo is famed for building an exact replica of Noah’s Ark known as Ark Encounter. Fox tells us:
Ken Ham, founder of The Ark Encounter in Williamstown, said the biblical-sized boat is possibly the “most striking structure” in the state.
Maybe it is. We’ve never been to Kentucky, so we wouldn’t know. After that they quote Hambo some more:
“As a Christian ministry, we want to love our neighbor and express compassion, kindness and humility during a very challenging time,” he added. “When we re-open, we look forward to sharing biblical teachings like these as we welcome back our guests.”
That’s all they say about Hambo and his ark. Then they quote some preachers about the coronavirus, so that’s all we can get out of Fox. However, this green ark is very odd. As our readers recall, three years ago we wrote Hambo and the Rainbow, when Hambo became so obsessed with the LGBTQetc community that he actually illuminated the ark in rainbow colors at night — and he was proud of it. He was “taking the rainbow” back.” He said this at his blog:
But the rainbow itself wasn’t designed to be a symbol of freedom, love, pride, or the LGBTQ movement. [Hambo’s bold font.] God created this beautiful, colorful phenomenon and designated it as a sign of His covenant with Noah and his descendants forever. … As Christians, we need to take the rainbow back and teach our young people its true meaning.
Since then, we’ve been told that his ark has been bathed in rainbow colored lights every night — until now. Does any of this matter? Not really. The LGBTQ people are still using the rainbow as their symbol, and the coronavirus doesn’t care about the lights at Hambo’s ark. But if this stuff makes Hambo happy, that’s fine with us.
