Creationist Ken Ham knows what caused 9/11 and it apparently has little to do with Islamic extremism, American imperialism or religion.

It’s the gays.

In an interview with WND TV, Ham says:

You know, that 9/11 event was certainly a dramatic event in the history of America, and it certainly challenged a lot of people. And it reminds people, too, that this is a sin/cursed universe. And, you know, the Bible tells us death is the penalty for sin… there’s evil in the world because of our sin and because we’re responsible. You can’t just look at something and say, “That’s what the terrorists did.” You have to look at it from the perspective of “That’s what we did.” Because we, and Adam, sinned against a Holy God. So we’re collectively responsible…

And one of the signs of even God judging a nation and withdrawing the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit, one of the signs is the sign of homosexual behavior, as it says in Romans 1. And I believe we’re seeing that in this nation, I believe this nation is under judgment.

But his brilliance doesn’t stop at blaming natural disasters on sexual behavior, he also believes that the recent Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states is “tragic for America’s children.”

Citing the president of the American College of Pediatricians who said that the ruling “is a tragic day for America’s children. The SCOTUS has just undermined the single greatest pro-child institution in the history of mankind: the natural family.”

What Ham leaves out is that the American College of Pediatricians is not a medical group in the way that say, the American Pediatric Association is, and, in fact, is just a right-wing non-profit hate group. They lobby the government and voters against same-sex adoption and marriage and they are anti-HPV vaccines, because even though it prevents cancer, it could encourage premarital sex.

Frank Rich, writing in the New York Times, described American College of Pediatricians as a “political organization peddling homophobic junk-science.”

Ham goes on to say that:

Well, despite what many gay “marriage” activists say, having two mummies or two daddies does not replace God’s design of one mum and one dad. God designed marriage—for one man and one woman—from the very beginning and blessed this union and said, “Be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28).

Well, despite what Ken Ham says, the US Government doesn’t write laws based on some archaic book with talking snakes and instead bases many of it’s laws on science and well, common sense, and the scientific consensus is that families with same-sex parents suffer no disadvantage over those of opposite-sex couples.

But, Ken Ham has never been one to let facts get in the way of his closed-minded, bigoted, homophobic beliefs.
