Ken Ham really did not like the Super Bowl

There may be nothing more fun than to read Ken Ham retyping Katy Perry lyrics and imagining him having these songs stuck in his head for hours on end.

Yet Ham claims Perry’s Super Bowl half-time show showed us the real state of the nation, he first said of her lyrics,

Katy Perry sang words like these last night: “Let you put your hands on me in my skin-tight jeans . . . Sippin’ gin and juice . . . Getcha freak on.” And she sang some of “I Kissed a Girl” (her original hit song that says, “I kissed a girl and I liked it, the taste of her Cherry ChapStick. I kissed a girl just to try it. I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it. It felt so wrong. It felt so right. Don’t mean I’m in love tonight. I kissed a girl and I liked it. I liked it.”)

And then onto the state of the nation,

So what does that mean with today’s cultural trends?! The words were on my TV as she “sang.” Most of them didn’t even make sense—they were meaningless garbage. Do young people in the church follow Katy Perry? I hope not! Sensuous and evil! But it is a sad peek into the real state of much of the coming generation!

Given the billions of fans Perry has, I am going to assume a massive majority of them are “people in church” and I will even wager that many are church leaders and or youth group leaders.

But if pop-culture is too much for Ham, well, don’t you even dare get him started about Carnival Cruises!

It’s sad—but true—the world’s largest cruise line company with its more than 20 cruise ships blatantly used evolution to advertise its cruises at the Super Bowl this evening.

Yes, Carnival used the fact we originally came from the oceans to encourage viewers to “return to the sea” and you know that made poor little Ken’s blood boil.

His whining is nothing special and what anyone would come to expect, claiming it some anti-Christian call to suddenly worship the sea (and somehow he ropes Neil deGrasse Tyson into this and claims you need to worship the stars) but he really goes off the handle with this one,

Oh—and really, you can spend a lot of money on such a cruise, but because you evolved from the sea and are just an evolved animal, and when you die you won’t even know you existed—so you won’t even remember the cruise—so what’s the point anyway? You just evolved to have an ultimately meaningless existence!

Ham has a real knack for telling non-Christians they live meaningless lives. I often don’t swear on this blog, but Ken, you are a huge piece of shit. How dare you tell me or anyone else they live a meaningless existence. I find meaning in everyday life, waking up and raising my child, doing good and helping others. I don’t need some imaginary being or the idea that all of this was created for me to find meaning in life. I am just not that selfish.

My life has a much greater meaning because I know this is the only life I get, I don’t need to remember a cruise when I am dead, I need to remember it now and enjoy the moment.

Perhaps Ham needs to cancel cable and only watch repeats of the 700 Club online, but oh wait, even the crazy-ass Pat Robertson thinks that Ken Ham is a lunatic! It seems there is no safe place for his brand of crazy, no one wants to hear it and no one respects it.
