Ken Ham says the C-J’s “anger at God just seethes within them”

The Courier-Journal’s Mark Murphy took a jab at Gov. Steve Beshear and the Ark Park in his Monday cartoon above, highlighting the $11.1 million that Beshear budgeted toward highway construction around Ark Encounter — which may, as we reported last week, end up being a Bridge to Nowhere.

Not surprisingly, this didn’t sit well with Ken Ham, the cult leader CEO of Answers in Genesis, who has made a fortune telling people that humans used to ride on dinosaurs and fight fire-breathing dragons.

Well — the Louisville (Kentucky) ‘Courier Journal,’ just can’t help themselves — they just can’t let it rest. I guess their anger at God just seethes within them. They published another negative cartoon about the Ark Encounter project to continue to mislead the public. Maybe they think if they can say something incorrectly enough times, people may believe it. So much for freedom of religion in America! I think they forgot to read that bit of the 1st amendment:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

No one is being forced to go to the Ark Park! AiG has a right to freedom of religion as do the secular anti-God Museums/parks.

Let’s face it–it is only because this project is that of a Christian Theme Park that they claim the so called ‘separation of church and state,’ line. If it was an atheistic (anti-God–there is no neutral position) Park to teach man is just an animal–they would want direct Government handouts for it!

More filth from the God-hating liberal media! Nevermind the bait-and-switch that Ham employs, as taxpayers will have no “choice” on whether they pay $11.1 million dollars for the Yellow Brick Road to the Giant Dinosaur Boat, or empty farmland.

One of Ken Ham’s followers asked him in the comments when Ark Encounter was actually going to open. As you can see in his reply, the opening is in God’s hands… but he doesn’t fully trust God:

Susan–it all depends on God’s timing –and depends on a lot of things coming together in a particular way–God has opened the doors, but His timing is not always our timing–we would like to see it happen in 2014–but no human guarantees

While Ham may not fully trust God, there is someone he does trust. When asked for some perspective on the road issue and whether letters to the editor would help, Ham assures her that when it comes to the money faucet from the Beshear administration, everything is in place:

Jennifer–there is no need to write–everything is actually ok–its just the liberals are crying about it.

To quote Bob Dylan: “But the tears on her cheeks are from laughter.”

    Ken Ham can slice it up anyway he chooses, but the bottom line, whether the critic is a faithful Christian believer or not, Mr. Ham is teaching kids things that are historically inaccurate. And he must know it. And because he must know it, he is unethically running a for-profit entity designed to scam the ignorant, much like the gambling industry does.

    I’m not angry at Mr. Ham. I just look at him the same way I look at anyone who is so painfully ethically challenged.

    It’s a misapplication of the First Amendment to interpret it to mean that government is to give handouts to religious organizations. The First Amendment is about freedom of conscience of individuals—not religious institutions.

    Sounds like the Flintstone Museum has bought into the delusional Supreme Court/Romney view that corporations are people and are therefore entitled to First Amendment constitutional protection and preferential treatment.

    If the Flintstone Museum brings in the traffic they have projected then it would be proper for the state to provide the money to upgrade the highway system to accommodate the additional traffic. As it stands now, it’s like Beshear has bought a pig in a poke.

    Agree with both Steve and David.

    Mr Hamm can’t be that stupid, so it is only reasonable to believe he deliberately misspeaks AKA lies.

    I’m sure the Commonwealth will be just as generous when UofL asks for a similar amount of money to help with the roads and other infrastructure for the new research center planned just south of the Belknap Campus.

    It’s not just the $11.1 million. Gov. Beshear is proposing to give a $43 million tax “incentive” to the Six Flags Over Noah theme park while proposing a 6.4% cut to higher education. It is totally absurd to cut higher education while giving that much in tax breaks to people who, as the comedian Lewis Black said of creationists, watch the Flintstones as if it were a documentary. Kentucky needs to support REAL education, not pseudoscience
