Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. His first name is Ray, and this is the second time we’ve written about one of his letters. For the first, see #1,001: A Hambo Visitor. Excerpts from his new letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!
Last year my wife and I went to see the ARK Encounter [We know, he already told us!], which is located off I-75 in Williamstown, Kentucky. I cannot say enough about our visit. It was unbelievable and definitely worth the adventure.
Ooooooooooooh! It was an adventure! Then he says:
Along with the ark, we were fortunate to catch a presentation by the creator of the ARC [sic] Encounter.
Wowie — Ray actually got to see a presentation by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. What an amazing experience that must have been! He tells us:
He spoke of how God created all of us equal and pointed out that there is no difference between us and demonstrated this by pointing to his face and asked how many of you think I am white? [Huh?] Many of us held up our hands.
What kind of a goof-ball question is that? Ray continues:
He then took a piece of white construction paper and placed it by his face and said “No, this is white.” It was obviously much whiter than his face.
*Groan* Okay, Hambo’s point was that humans aren’t snow-white. That’s not very shocking, but Ray seems to have been amazed. Let’s read on:
He then held up a piece of black construction paper and held it by his face. Obviously it was much blacker then any of my brown or black friends.
Same point as before. Now what? It all comes together in the rest of Ray’s letter. Here ya go:
His point is that we are all merely different shades of the same color. All equal under God.
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant! You agree, don’t you, dear reader?
