This seems to be a genuine cry of despair from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.
We found it at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry. The title will shock you: In New Reality TV Show, Men Compete to Impregnate a Woman. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Just when you think you’ve heard and seen it all, mankind invents a new level of depravity. [Egad!] What am I talking about? Well, it’s a new reality show shown on the Fox broadcasting channel called Labor of Love.
Here’s the show’s website. It’s a “a new level of depravity”? What’s it all about? Hambo explains:
In this show, fifteen men will compete to be the one who gets to father a child with a woman who’s ready to start a family, but with no husband. [Sounds very Darwinian!] Yes, you read that right. As one article described it, this show will “skip the dating and go straight to baby-making.” Love, apparently, is optional.
The woman in the show sounds like some girls we used to know. But Hambo has led a holy life and he’s shocked — shocked! He tells us:
Now, likely many people watching this show will think it’s very strange. But, in our day when morality is determined by what feels right, many will just say, “Oh well, it’s entertainment. And if that’s what they want to do, that’s fine for them.”
That’s not Hambo’s reaction! He says:
But the fact that such a depraved idea is being approved by a network, the cast (including “dad-chelors” who are actually signing up for this “opportunity” to compete and prove they would make a good partner and parent), filmed, and aired really points to the rampant immorality of our culture.
Yes — rampant immorality! Let’s read on:
No longer is sexuality — and apparently even raising children — linked with love and commitment. Instead, it’s whatever feels right or good at the time.
How horrible! Then he quotes from the Good Book:
Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous. (Hebrews 13:4)
This made me think: people will fear a virus like COVID-19, but the real problem is that most people in the media, many politicians, and, really, the majority of people in general do not fear the Lord.
People are such fools! Hambo finishes with this:
“Labor of Love” really should be titled: “There is no fear of God before their eyes” (Romans 3:18). [Big scripture quote.]
Hambo’s post goes on to other subjects, but we’ve discussed the part that we wanted to. What’s your opinion of the new TV show, dear reader?
