Creationist Ken Ham puts colored lights on his ark in bid to take back rainbows from gay people

Creationist Ken Ham puts colored lights on his ark in bid to ‘take back’ rainbows from gay people

Creationist Ken Ham has set up a colorful light display around his massive Ark Encounter museum this year — but he’s not doing it just to spread Christmas cheer.

Via Patheos, it seems that Ham views his light display as a perfect way to thumb his nose at the LGBT community, as he believes such displays are key to “taking back” the rainbow from gay people and reclaiming it as a symbol of Christian faith.

“In recent times the rainbow (albeit with some different colors) has come to represent something far different,” Ham explains in his blog Answers in Genesis. “To many people it means freedom, love, pride, a new era, and, specifically, the LGBTQ movement.”

This doesn’t sit well with Ham, who maintains that “the rainbow stands as a poignant reminder that God keeps His promises” and hasn’t yet drowned the world for a second time with a massive global flood. Thus, Ham says the rainbow must be re-appropriated as a matter of Christian duty.

1. The GOP knows all about the power of totems. I've been saying it for years. Don't let

them take over our totems. Remember when they took over Paul Wellstone's funeral saying it wasn't fair it was a partisan affair? They didn't want Wellstone to turn into a Democratic touchstone. They are like that.

2. Omfg!

I can't help but laugh. The stupid crap they come up with. Take back rainbows from gay people. Seriously? I can't get over how ridiculous that is. It's like that so-called war on Christmas. It's a damn lie to make people outraged.

10. I don't agree with his hate, but the story of the ark and the rainbow are associated.

Genesis 9:11-17
11I will establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all creatures be destroyed by the waters of a flood; there shall not be another flood to devastate the earth.h 12God said: This is the sign of the covenant that I am making between me and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: 13i I set my bow in the clouds to serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14When I bring clouds over the earth, and the bow appears in the clouds, 15I will remember my covenant between me and you and every living creature—every mortal being—so that the waters will never again become a flood to destroy every mortal being.j 16When the bow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature—every mortal being that is on earth. 17God told Noah: This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and every mortal being that is on earth.

I guess Mr. Ham doesn't get this part: "I will see it (the bow) and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature—every mortal being that is on earth."

It's ironic that of Noah's 3 sons Ham is cursed by his father.

12. Ok, let's see some commitment.

Since he's upset by a perceived theft of the rainbow by LGBT+, let's see him "take back" the word "gay" by running around and saying, "I feel really gay today."
