This one is going to shock you, dear reader, but you must accept it nevertheless. Why? Because it’s from the pen of Ken Ham, the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. That means that whatever he writes is The Truth™.
Hambo’s new article at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry, is titled Myth of Equality. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
The world tries to make humans equal in many different areas. So, are we all equal? What is true equality?
Got your attention, didn’t he? Hambo then discusses four different kinds of equality. He says:
1. Biologically: Really, the modern LGBTQ movement is a push to make humans equal biologically. Supposedly, males can be females, and females can be males. However, biologically (and genetically), males and females are different. [Gasp!] Our sex chromosomes confirm what God God [Hambo’s duplication!] stated in his Word that “from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female’” (Mark 10:6). Women bear children — men cannot.
Aha! People are not equal — at least biologically. After that he tells us:
2. Roles: The feminist movement, in essence, wanted men and women to have completely equal roles. Certainly there are many things men and women can equally do, but the Bible makes it clear that God also gave men and women different roles from the beginning. For instance, consider the origin of the first woman: “Then the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him’” (Genesis 2:18).
Did you follow that? Women are not equal to men in the roles that they play. Hambo continues:
3. Talents: God gives us different gifts: “Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness” (Romans 12:6–8). Those with the gift of teaching are warned to use the gift very responsibly: “Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness” (James 3:1).
With that “my brothers” goodie in the last sentence, Hambo seems to be saying that only men should be teachers. Let’s read on:
4. Wealth: The Bible even makes it clear that not everyone will have wealth: “For you always have the poor with you” (Matthew 26:11). We need to take God’s Word as written and ensure that we do not conform to the world’s message of equality.
Yahweh ain’t no communist, and neither is Hambo. He finishes with this:
What else can we learn from all this? Most importantly, God’s Word makes it clear that we are the same in that we are all sinners (Romans 3:23), and we all need and can receive the free gift of salvation, bought by the precious blood of Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9).
So where does that leave us? It seems that neither Yahweh nor Hambo supports the idea of equality. And of course, there’s absolutely no equality when you think about eternity. Some will be floating around on fluffy clouds, while others — probably including all the Darwinists — will be screaming in agony in the Lake of Fire. In other words, equality appeals only to blasphemous fools!
