Creationist bloggers like the ones we follow are having an increasingly difficult time finding stuff to blog about. Despite their claims to the contrary, the observable evidence is all against them. Further, after decades of futile litigation, the courts are all against them too. They can’t get their “science” taught in government schools, and universities are free to reject them when they apply for faculty positions.
So other than endlessly complaining, what do they blog about? They seem to be scrambling around and scraping bottom when it comes to finding stuff. A good example of this is a recent post by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. It’s at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Are Wedding Pictures a “Microaggression”?
The subject is wildly off-topic for us, but it’s all can find today, so maybe you’ll have some fun with it. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Did you know wedding pictures could be a “microaggression”? Well, apparently, they can be, at least according to two academics!
Hambo links to a website we’ve never seen before. It isn’t the website of a university or a news organization and they don’t describe themselves anywhere, so we have no idea what they are. Anyway, this is what Hambo is blogging about: 2 professors warn using wedding pictures as Zoom background is a “microaggression”. He says:
As employees are increasingly working from home during COVID-19, online meeting apps, such as Zoom, are being used more frequently than before. Well, these two academics (one from Michigan State University and one from the University of Colorado, Denver) are worried that the use of these online meeting platforms is “a ripe setting for unconscious bias.”
There aren’t enough problems in the world to worry about, so they need to worry about that. But what’s the problem? Hambo explains:
Because someone, they say, might put their wedding photo — of a man and a woman — as their virtual background and “unintentionally reinforce the idea that marriage is most fitting between opposite sexes.”
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s what they’re worried about? Hambo continues:
What if someone put up a “wedding” photo of a gay “ceremony”? Would that be ok? Wouldn’t that be a “microagression” against those who reject gay “marriage”?
Your Curmudgeon doesn’t care what kind of relationship people are in — as long as they’re all consenting adults. But Hambo thinks this stuff is important. Let’s read on:
And what would they call it if an employee had a Bible or a picture with a Scripture verse on it in their background? No doubt a macroaggression!
Macro, not micro? Hambo is feeling particularly persecuted today. After that profound remark he tells us:
In reality, what such people want to do is make the abnormal normal. [Gasp!] They would like to impose their anti-Christian worldview on everyone else and deny Christians the free exercise of their religion.
Hambo, on the other hand, is the most tolerant person around. He has no desire to impose his worldview on anyone. Here’s more:
It’s another sad example of the increasing anti-Christian sentiment in the nation and entire Western world.
And now we come to the end:
There’s one verse from Scripture that immediately comes to mind after reading this ridiculous article:
Claiming to be wise, they became fools. (Romans 1:22)
Take heed, dear reader. Remove all photos from where they might be seen during your next internet conference, and replace them with something more normal — like Hambo does. He usually has Noah’s ark in the background of his photos, and there’s nothing more normal than that!
