Evolution denier and owner of the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, Ken Ham, is doing his part to be a good little science denying hate-monger by making it a mission to “take the rainbow back.”
Apparently, the sight of landmarks (like the White House) lit up in rainbow colors to celebrate the Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality last year really chapped dear Kenny boy’s ass. As a result, he has lit up his newest attraction, the Ark Experience, in rainbow lights for the holidays.
He writes on his site:
Taking the Rainbow Back!
In recent times the rainbow (albeit with some different colors) has come to represent something far different. To many people it means freedom, love, pride, a new era, and, specifically, the LGBTQ movement. Indeed when the US Supreme Court legalized gay “marriage” last year, the White House was lit up in rainbow colors and released a statement.
He included the White House’s statement regarding the White House being lit in pride colors. “Tonight, the White House was lit to demonstrate our unwavering commitment to progress and equality, here in America and around the world. . . . The pride colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community, and tonight, these colors celebrate a new chapter in the history of American civil rights.”
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.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Ham thought up the idea to “take the rainbow back.” Over nine years ago, he wrote about doing the same thing, upset by the fact that the LGBTQ community has been using the rainbow flag for decades.
The rainbow has been used as a sign of a new era and a symbol of peace, love, and freedom. Sadly, the colors of the rainbow are even used on a flag for the gay and lesbian movement.
Isn’t it funny how he thinks only the people of one specific faith have ownership over a natural occurring thing on earth, like the rainbow?
I have a feeling Ham is going to be sorely disappointed years from now when he realizes his “take the rainbow back” campaign failed miserably.
