We don’t know what to make of this one, so we’ll just present it and then maybe you’ll be able to make sense of it. It’s 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 the creationist ministry, and it’s titled Twitter Bans Spanish Politician for Saying “A Man Cannot Get Pregnant”. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
If I told you even five years ago that Twitter would be temporarily suspending a politician’s account for stating biological facts, you probably wouldn’t have believed me. [We always believe you, Hambo!] The acceptance of radical gender ideology — which is both anti-science and anti-truth (anti-biblical) — has taken place at breakneck speed. And we now live in a world where a simple statement of biological fact — that men cannot, in fact, get pregnant as they have “no uterus or eggs” — is now considered [Link omitted!] “hate speech.”
We need a little background, and Hambo gives it to us:
Reportedly, Francisco José Contreras, who serves as a deputy to Spain’s Vox Party, received a twelve-hour suspension from Twitter [How horrible!] because, in response to an article on a “man” becoming pregnant [Those scare quotes are significant!], he tweeted “a man cannot get pregnant” because men have “no uterus or eggs.” It’s a simple biological fact, but in our anti-science day, it’s considered hate speech.
Evolution is also a “simple biological fact,” but Hambo doesn’t want to hear any of that stuff. Anyway, he tells us:
As our Western cultures drift further from a biblical worldview [Gasp!] and instead continue to build their thinking on the sand of man’s opinions, we’ll continue to see utter foolishness accepted as fact — and anything resembling biblical truth vilified and ignored. As I have been saying for many years now, we must be prepared to stand, no matter what comes.
He’s right, of course. For a long time now, Hambo has been telling us about biblical truth like Noah’s ark, but everyone laughs at him. Of course, there are other biblical truths that he won’t defend — see The Earth Is Flat! Anyway, this pregnancy thing is where he draws the line. Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say he draws the line at calling the pregnant person a “man.” Anyway, he continues:
God’s Word is clear: he created us male and female and gave women, not men, the ability and privilege of bearing children, although that is difficult and painful now in a sin-cursed and broken world (Genesis 3:16).
We hope you understand what’s going on here, because now we’ve arrived at the end of Hambo’s post. Here it is:
So, Francisco José Contreras is right because of the truth of God’s Word and science — a man cannot get pregnant, no matter how vehemently our culture argues otherwise. God’s Word, not man’s foolishness as exhibited by Twitter, will endure.
Your Curmudgeon has no experience with Twitter. We generally ignore such websites. Also, there’s obviously a lot more to this story, because it makes no sense as presented by Hambo. What do you make of it, dear reader?
