Ark Encounter official pens an op-ed claiming religious liberty is under attack

Still upset over losing their 18 million dollar tax incentive, Mark Looy, the COO of Answers in Genesis and The Ark Encounter recently submitted an “Op-Ed” to the Louisville Courier-Journal. Given that the piece is now only posted on the AiG website, I assume the piece was rejected, most likely because it is not an op-ed, but defense piece in which the organization still pretends it is allowed to break the law.It starts: In addition to refuting the myth that tax dollars will be used to buil … [Read more...]

Answers in Genesis has released a statement today in reaction to the State of Kentucky rejecting the organizations application for 18 million dollars in tax incentives.Ken Ham said in the statement, “We have been working on this project with Kentucky for more than two years, so this just-received denial announcement is as disappointing as it is costly for our ministry without the expected rebate.” Ham then claimed he would battle this issue in court if he must, “Our construction has alread … [Read more...]

Qqd5aGz

He is of course doing so because he thinks the fear will increase donations; donations he clearly needs to … [Read more...]

Ken Ham is still lying to the public about The Ark Encounter discrimination

Ken Ham is still lying about the Ark Encounter.Ham continues to push the lie that the genocidal theme park is not hiring, when this blog has shown countless times that they are in fact hiring for a full time position for the project and are discriminating against potential employees in doing so.The images below show the position in question, again, showing that employees must sign a statement of faith and that the job is also a ministry to spread the word of God.Ham is a recent … [Read more...]
