A Great New Book from Ol’ Hambo

We found this at the website of Answers in Genesis, the creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo). As you know, he’s the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.

Their article says it’s a press release, so you know it’s important. It’s titled America’s Culture Divide Examined by Ken Ham in New Book. [Ooooooooooooh! A new book by Hambo!] Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

With America fracturing even more across political, racial, cultural, and even religious lines, Ken Ham’s latest book Divided Nation shares how the Church can regain a position of influence in reaching people with truth. Whether it’s racism, gay “marriage,” abortion, climate change, evolution, etc., Ham presents biblical answers.

This is really exciting! Hey — we found the book at Amazon: Divided Nation. Let’s stay with the press release, which says:

With the subtitle “Cultures in Chaos and a Conflicted Church,” Ham’s book recognizes that an accelerating division is happening throughout America. [Gasp!] Western culture, he writes, is becoming more secularized and anti-Christian, with religious persecution [Persecution?] against Christians on the rise.

The world needs this book! The press release tells us:

With a new administration in Washington, Ham declares that Christians must now be bolder than ever in engaging the culture regarding hot-button topics like abortion and gay “marriage.” He also urges believers to learn how to communicate in a loving way so that teaching from the Bible does not come across as hate speech. [Hee hee!]

The press release continues:

Ham offers Christian families and churches a biblical mandate to awaken and become major influencers in today’s turbulent culture. [A biblical mandate!] He urges the Church’s next generation to take a bold stand regardless of increasing religious persecution and encourages families and churches to train young people in biblical truth. Ham ultimately calls for a new Reformation [Egad!] that will get Christians back to the authority [Authority!] of the Word of God beginning in Genesis.

Hambo is so courageous! Let’s read on:

Ham is well known outside Christendom for the highly popular Ark Encounter themed attraction (with a full-size 510-foot-long Noah’s Ark), the high-tech Creation Museum, and his famous debate in 2014 with Bill Nye “The Science Guy,” watched conservatively by at least 25 million people. Ham is the author or co-author of more than 25 books, covering such varied topics as dinosaurs, racism, raising a godly family, and evolution vs. creation.

Verily, Hambo is the greatest man alive! Here’s our last excerpt:

Heavily illustrated with colorful artwork, Divided Nation is published by Master Books, a division of New Leaf Press, and at 160 pages retails for $15.99. The book’s illustrations are free for the public to use and can be retrieved at [link omitted].

Okay, dear reader. You know what you gotta do. Get yourself a copy of ol’ Hambo’s book. And when you place your order, tell ’em the Curmudgeon sent ya!

  1. Ham must know, like anybody else that the pool of Christians is shrinking, especially in the younger age groups. Does he really think that he can attract them back with a 6,000 year old universe? It looks like these folks are working hard at making Christianity look as foolish as possible.

  2. “how to communicate in a loving way so that teaching from the Bible does not come across as hate speech.”

    Stuff like this? “God’s goodness doesn’t negate eternal punishment in hell; it demands it.” https://answersingenesis.org/eternal-torment/

  3. Maybe he can explain how all of the flood waters drained before the invention of plumbing fixtures or Roto-Rooter.

    Ham may deplore public division, but he profits by it, all his “us versus them” rhetoric. A more divided country means his followers will be bound to him more tightly. Ham doesn’t need everybody donating to AIG, a modest but loyal fraction of fundamentalists will bring him plenty of money.

    Bring people together by discussing hot button issues of abortion and gay rights? Is he that arrogant?

    Paul Braterman: Yes. Exactly. Anybody who can write that is, must be, completely devoid of moral compass. It is impossible for any moral human being to imagine what such a person might be capable of. Psychopathy that gross, that overwhelming, is beyond understanding. Vigilance is the only remedy, for certainly debate, reasoning, or accommodation are nugatory.

    Can’t help loving the way he was “conservatively watched” on TV.
    Seriously, though, I agree with @Dave Luckett that while it is hilarious, we have to be so wary of this stuff. This focused, planned insanity. I hope he doesn’t sell a single extra book because it’s mentioned here.

  8. Just like all chrisANALs thru time, Hambone carries on the tradition of lying about persecution!

    As Christian’s ignore their so called Lord and Savior’s most important commandment, Love thy neighbor as thyself. Not love the neighbor is he or she is straight. Not love thy neighbor if they follow the same religion as you. Not love thy neighbor if their skin is the same color as yours. Treat everyone well. Love them. Persecution my rear end. The persecution they claim to be suffering is from when they fail to follow Jesus’ commandment.
