I rushed back from DC to my old Kentucky home last night to attend the spectacular “Date Night at the Creation Museum“, where my date and I were to take in a nice dinner and listen to Ken Ham explain what makes a good relationship work.
Unfortunately, we were told at the door that we would not be allowed entry.
They explained to us (my friends, I arrived after them) that the Creation Museum Date Night was a “Christian environment”, therefore the presence of two men eating dinner together would not be allowed. The very sight of this would “add an un-Christian element to the event” and “disrupt the evening for everyone”.
Times have changed, I guess.
The Creation Museum rep further informed us that you cannot be a Christian if you are gay, asking “can you tell me what exactly is Christian about being gay?”. How can you argue with that logic?
When asked for the refund on our tickets, which were purchased in advance, he informed us that there would be no refund, since it said explicitly on their Website that “no gay couples would be permitted to attend their Date Night”. That is certainly an interesting admission, despite the fact that it isn’t true:
The Better Business Bureau has already been contacted.
And remember, these are the very same people that are claiming that they will not discriminate in hiring for their new Dineysore Ark Park in order to receive $40 million in tax breaks from our fearless leader, Governor Steve Beshear. This, despite the fact that their job advertisements for Ark Encounter explicitly state that applicants must sign a Christian oath purity pledge. And can you really expect Ken Ham to hire a gay employee and pay them money, when they won’t even accept money from two men to attend their business, because the appearance of possible Gayness would make their heads explode?
Of course not. This is who they are.
Anyway, the great irony is that while two men were not allowed to attend the Creation Museum last night, guess who they are welcoming with open arms today? None other than Jeffrey Bornhoeft, a lovely fellow making his first trip out of Ohio since the time that he shot his ex-wife’s husband three times in the head 11 years ago. Jeffrey is OK though, because he’s totally not into dudes.
So I unfortunately was not able to hear Ken Ham’s speech, the musical stylings of Ray Cummins, and the observe the rest of the evening. It’s a shame, I would have liked to share that with you. However, some friends of ours that you all know were there for the dinner and festivities, and you’ll be hearing from them shortly about all the fun going on in the 100% heterosexual Date Night at the Creation Museum.
UPDATE: One of those friends was Jonathan Meador of LEO. Here’s his account of what happened before he and his ladyfriend gained entry.
UPDATE 2: As I mentioned in the original post and pointed to in Meador’s detailed account, my friends got there before I did. There is a difference between “us” and “me”. Ken Ham decided to not allow us entry because he didn’t want two men eating together, because he is bigot, as much as he tries to pretend he isn’t one in order to get his $40 million hand out from the taxpayers of Kentucky. Go ride on your saddled dinosaur for a spell until you come to this realization.
UPDATE 3: A big thanks to Ken Ham for directing his readers our way! This is just the kind of boost we need to increase our advertising revenue! You’re all contributing money to un-Christian flamboyance while God is watching you, bwahahaha!
