Earlier this year, Ken Ham built a ridiculous museum in Kentucky based on the ark from the Noah’s Ark story in the Bible. It is a big, ridiculous boat filled with lies promoting Creationism and blatantly biblical exhibit inside. For Christmas, he has the Ark lit up in rainbow colors.
Many homophobic Christians have declared that the rainbow is a symbol of “God’s promise,” not a symbol of LGBT pride. He is referring to the rainbow discussed in this Biblical verse:
“And as for Me, behold, I establish My covenant with you and with your descendants after you, and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you, of all that go out of the ark, every beast of the earth. Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth” (Genesis 9:9–11).
This “sign of the covenant” they spoke of was a rainbow. They are trying to turn it into some kind of movement to “take back the rainbow.”
It’s a rainbow! What is the big deal?! I don’t understand the hate they have for the LGBT community. Ken Ham is an idiot, but this is ridiculous.
