At the end of last year, creationist Ken Ham turned his ridiculous Christian theme park into a veritable fairyland by bathing his replica ark in rainbow colours for the festive season.
His aim was not attract swarms of gay visitors, who regard rainbow flags and the like as beacons of welcome, but to to let the world know that the rainbow had been hijacked by deviants and that it was time for Christians to snatch it back.
At the time, the moron wrote:
In recent times the rainbow (albeit with some different colors) has come to represent … freedom, love, pride, a new era, and, specifically, the LGBTQ movement. . . .
But the rainbow itself wasn’t designed to be a symbol of freedom, love, pride, or the LGBTQ movement. God created this beautiful, colorful phenomenon and designated it as a sign of His covenant with Noah and his descendants forever.
Sadly, people ignore what God intended the rainbow to represent and proudly wave rainbow-colored flags in defiance of God’s command and design for marriage. Because of this, many Christians shy away from using the rainbow colors. But the rainbow was a symbol of God’s promises before the LGBTQ movement – and will continue to be after that movement has ended. As Christians, we need to take the rainbow back and teach our young people its true meaning.
Ham, above, has now decided to make the rainbow display “a permanent feature”.
Well, we’ve decided to enhance the rainbow lights and make them a permanent feature during evenings at the Ark, located south of Cincinnati. We will be working over the coming months to ensure this change is permanent. It’s all part of ‘taking the rainbow back’.
The Friendly Atheist, Hermant Mehta, commented:
There you have it. Let the Bizarro Creationist Rainbow forever remind you that the Christian God is synonymous with death, destruction, and genocide. He loves you, and that’s why he has to constantly threaten you.
It’s just another awful lesson kids will learn if they visit Ark Encounter.
He also noted that:
People also pointed out it wasn’t a good rainbow. The colors repeated themselves and didn’t go in the right order. It was pretty much what you’d expect from someone who doesn’t understand how science works.
