Things are getting strange at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG). That’s 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. He just posted this unexpected blog article: Pro-Life Activists Arrested for Chalking “Black Pre-Born Lives Matter”. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
In the minds of many people today, the phrase “Black Lives Matter” is supposed to affirm that racism is wrong (which it is) and that we need to work to end lingering prejudices and discrimination. Of course, the phrase means much more than that — the Black Lives Matter organization behind the popular hashtag stands for Marxist values, transgender ideology, and a disruption of the family unit. Just a quick glance of the BLM website reveals that.
Racism, Marxism, transgenderism — this is unusual stuff to encounter at a creationist website. Let’s see where Hambo is going with this. He says:
But do many of those who say the phrase “Black Lives Matter” really believe all so-called “black” (really, we’re all just shades of brown) lives matter? No. Apparently there are two different sets of rules.
Two different sets of rules? What’s going on here? He tells us:
A pro-life group, Students for Life of America, recently used sidewalk chalk to spell out the phrase “Black Pre-born Lives Matter” on the sidewalk outside of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Washington, DC. … But while they were chalking the sidewalk, they were approached by police, and both pro-life activists were arrested. Reportedly, the group had obtained a permit to assemble and a verbal affirmation that their chalk artwork was permitted. They were, however, arrested.
Where’s the creationism in all of this mess? We’re skipping a paragraph about police tolerance in Washington DC of demonstrators painting ‘Defund the Police.’ After that, Hambo declares:
It would appear that in our culture today that there are two sets of rules: one set for people with conservative and/or Christian worldviews [He means creationist!] and another set for those who hold to a secular worldview. And the chasm between the two is growing wider and deeper.
What’s he saying — that there can’t be conservatives who have a secular — i.e. scientific — worldview? All secularists are commies? Well, we warned you things were getting strange at Hambo’s website. He continues:
In our culture today we’re seeing a spiritual battle raging — a battle over foundations. Will we start with God’s Word, which teaches that all humans beings — born or unborn, dark brown, light brown, or in-between, all levels of ability, male or female — are made in the image of God and have equal value and dignity? Or will we start with man’s ideas, which lead to moral relativism and, in our culture today, the belief that unborn lives (among others) do not matter? There is no neutrality (Matthew 12:30). There are only two options — man’s word or God’s Word.
Unless you’re Hambo’s kind of creationist conservative, you’re a racist abortionist. He wraps it all up with a promotion for his creationist tourist attractions:
To learn the truth about the origin of the human race, the formation of different people groups, and how to deal with racism and prejudice, visit the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter [links omitted] in N. Kentucky and see our spectacular exhibits dealing with this timely topic.
That was your daily dose of creationism from ol’ Hambo. Inspirational, wasn’t it?
