Ark Encounter Now Permanently Lit With Rainbow Colors To “Take The Rainbow Back” From Homosexuals

Back in December, I posted this quote from creationist nutjob Ken Ham:

In recent times the rainbow (albeit with some different colors) has come to represent freedom, love, pride, a new era, and, specifically, the LGBTQ movement. 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.

Today Hemant Mehta reports at The Friendly Atheist that the rainbow lights will now be permanent. He adds:

So the rainbow was a reminder from God that he hasn’t slaughtered us yet. Delightful. People also pointed out it wasn’t a good rainbow. The colors repeated themselves and didn’t go in the right order. It was pretty much what you’d expect from someone who doesn’t understand how science works. There you have it. Let the Bizarro Creationist Rainbow forever remind you that the Christian God is synonymous with death, destruction, and genocide. He loves you, and that’s why he has to constantly threaten you. It’s just another awful lesson kids will learn if they visit Ark Encounter.

    Oh honey, our community has fought bigger battles and won. Enjoy your BS while it lasts.

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    How did they fuck that lighting up so bad? Usually when something gets lit up rainbow it looks better, not worse.

    • TampaDink

      Not to mention the fuschia & aqua holiday trees…..which really scream “not intended to be taken seriously in any religious context”.

      • -M-

        holiday trees

        🤣

      • Librarykid

        Those are not Christmas colors.

        • TampaDink

          Jesus says “red and green or get the fuck outta here!”

          • Librarykid

            Of course, being Jewish, he might have preferred a white tree with blue lights and balls.

          • TampaDink

            Or white lights & blue balls.

          • Librarykid

            Sounds painful.

          • TampaDink

            Yes indeed.

          • Librarykid

            Sounds painful.

    • Librarykid

      Heterosexual Religiosity can fuck up lots of things.

  • Robert Schaaf

    Good. That will be one less thing we have to change when it becomes a gay disco.

    • lymis

      Yeah, but we’ll have to rearrange the colors so they’re in the right order.

  • TampaDink

    They’ve turned it into The Big Gay Al’s Big Gay Boat Ride Experience.

    • Christopher

      I love you for this comment!

      • TampaDink

        <3 You're welcome.

    • FAEN

      Do they serve Big Gay Ice cream?

      • TampaDink

        Yes….with symbolic dinosaur pellets inside.

        • FAEN

          YES! I’m there lol.

      • Todd20036

        Been to that store. The ice cream is really good!

        • FAEN

          Are they only available in NY or do they have a DC store.

    • Ginger Snap

      I’m super thanks for asking, don’t you think I look cute in this hat-Big Gay AL.

      • TampaDink

        SUPER!!!!

    • Randy Left Brooklyn

      I know. When I saw the picture I thought, “Where’s Noah’s dance club? Does it have a back room?”

      • TampaDink

        They plan to expand….like Disney…and open a Sodom & Gomorrah Experience. It might be worth a trip to KY.

        • Randy Left Brooklyn

          Perhaps we can be technical consultants on the project.

          • TampaDink

            Sounds like a plan.

          • Craig Howell

            Who’s up for some beta testing?

        • Todd Allis

          Yes, lots of KY… Oh wait, you mean Kentucky.
          I hope they remember to make Sodom & Gomorrah inhospitable to visitors.

          • TampaDink

            Ky & K-Y.

          • sam

            Yeap and what was the Dollar amount of the Bond, those idiots accepted 5 millions dollars or whatever.
            I’ll just cry my heart out if the owners cannot pay back the Bond:-(

          • TampaDink

            Their tears might cause another great flood.

        • Nowhereman

          I doubt they’d do sodomy right, either.

          • TampaDink

            We could school them on it.

        • MT YVR

          I swear to dog I thought you said it might be worth a trip to get KY…

          • TampaDink

            Now why would I say such a thing? Costco sells it by the 55 gallon drum, trouble is, they come in a 2 pack.

          • unsavedheathen

            They make lovely night tables.

          • TampaDink

            Splendid idea, especially works with the industrial look. Unfortunately they’d clash with my current style of furnishing which is a combination of Early Poverty & Late Grandmother.

          • Stogiebear

            Come on now. Tatted doilies can go with anything,

          • TampaDink

            I know someone who believes this to be true & that they should go on everything. Of course he has more stuffed animals than F.A.O. Schwartz.

          • FAEN

            OY!

          • TampaDink

            Indeed.

            If I were really careful I could make two drums last almost a month.

            When I was at Costco this week, they had a big promotion on Trojan condoms. Two women were walking by and one asked, “No, why don’t they have demos for those?”

            As an accessory, they sell a night table look alike cover for the drum.

          • Stogiebear

            Do I remember correctly that KY used to be white and, frankly, a little bit grainy?

          • Librarykid

            I have only seen the clear gel, but perhaps you encountered the industrial version with the micro-beads that served as ball bearings to help things keep gliding without the film of lube being displaced.

        • Robincho

          Good drag name: Kay Wye…

          • TampaDink

            It really would be good…..but I’m still favoring Trampoline (said in a very southern accent).

          • Librarykid

            Has anyone ever encountered sex on a trampoline like in a video or in real life?

          • TampaDink

            I can’t imagine that hasn’t ever been done.

        • SJWinCMH

          It’s gonna take all that and a lot more to get me to visit KY.

          • TampaDink

            We could make it worth the journey…with the right amenities.

          • SJWinCMH

            Oh? Do tell!

          • TampaDink

            Once it is rebranded as Noah’s Tug Boat & Heavy Petting Zoo, the sky is the limit on what might be available.

          • SJWinCMH

            I love that the Rainbow Tugboat is only about a twenty minute drive from one of my favorite place names – Big Bone Lick!

          • TampaDink

            Why couldn’t I have been born & raised in Big Bone Lick?
            I see that is also very close to Beaver Lick, something for our lesbian sisters.

          I know what sodomy is, but I can’t wait to find out what gomorrahy is.

          • TampaDink

            I’ve often wondered about that. A quick Google search returned this:
            According to documents from the files of Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), gomorrahy (go·mor·rah·y – cf. sod·om·y) is the insertion of a hand, a foot, or the stump of a limb (i.e., the insertion of an extremity) into an introitus/vagina or an anus/anal canal, for a sexual purpose. In other words, the following sexual acts are subsumed under the concept “gomorrahy”

  • BacchusPlateau

    It’s just a fucking rainbow. It’s not like the Romans bagged on the Christians for stealing their cross symbol.

    • Christopher

      WAY before that!

      From Wikipedia:

      Due to the simplicity of the design (two intersecting lines), cross-shaped incisions make their appearance from deep prehistory; as petroglyphs in European cult caves, dating back to the beginning of the Upper Paleolithic, and throughout prehistory to the Iron Age.[citation needed] Also of prehistoric age are numerous variants of the simple cross mark, including the crux gammata with curving or angular lines, and the Egyptian crux ansata with a loop.

      Speculation has associated the cross symbol – even in the prehistoric period – with astronomical or cosmological symbology involving “four elements” (Chevalier, 1997) or the cardinal points, or the unity of a vertical axis mundi or celestial pole with the horizontal world (Koch, 1955). Speculation of this kind became especially popular in the mid- to late-19th century in the context of comparative mythology seeking to tie Christian mythology to ancient cosmological myths. Influential works in this vein included G. de Mortillet (1866),[3] L. Müller (1865),[4] W. W. Blake (1888),[5] Ansault (1891),[6] etc.

      Archaic cuneiform character LAK-617: a cruciform arrangement of five boxes; scribes could use the central, larger box as container for other characters.
      In the European Bronze Age the cross symbol appeared to carry a religious meaning, perhaps as a symbol of consecration, especially pertaining to burial.[7]

      The cross sign occurs trivially in tally marks, and develops into a number symbol independently in the Roman numerals (X “ten”), the Chinese rod numerals (十 “ten”) and the Brahmi numerals (“four”, whence the numeral 4).

      In the Phoenician alphabet and derived scripts, the cross symbol represented the phoneme /t/, i.e. the letter taw, which is the historical predecessor of Latin T. The letter name taw means “mark”, presumably continuing the Egyptian hieroglyph “two crossed sticks” (Gardiner Z9).[8]

      According to W. E. Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words, worshippers of Tammuz in Chaldea and thereabouts used the cross as symbol of that god.[9][10]

      • -M-

        Right angles being rare-ish in nature at human scale, makes crosses of various kinds stand out as deliberate markings. Good for signs and carries over into mysticism.

      • witch

        I’m a history fan, from what I’ve read the Romans used a T-shaped

    • Treant

      As Christopher noted, it’s a symbol of the four elements.

      It’s also been used as a symbol of the four seasons, depending on your traditions (some only acknowledge three seasons, considering fall to be transitional between summer and winter, and those tend to use a triangle).

      It’s a basic symbol of a human being with his (or her) arms spread out as well.

  • Tawreos

    Spectra, how do they work?

    • Treant

      Nobody knows.

    Best of luck with this, Ken Ham! Because, guess what? It wasn’t the 3 to 5% of us that are gay that made the association. Society at large did.

    Good luck stormin’ the castle!

    • WretchedMouse

      I was about to comment on that. Good luck indeed trying to change society’s association with that. Just look how long it takes words to change meaning and this man wants to change a symbol?!

      Color is weird. We’re not entirely sure that the color blue was a thing until recently. Orange certainly wasn’t.

      • That_Looks_Delicious

        I remember reading that there is at least one language that doesn’t have separate words for “green” and “blue”; they use the same word. Which seems so strange to me.

        • safari

          There’s a great RadioLab segment about this called “Why Isn’t The Sky Blue”: http://www.radiolab.org/story/211213-sky-isnt-blue/

        • Canadian Observer

          Archaic Greek didn’t have a word for blue… hence all of Homer’s references to the “wine dark sea”.

          • Craig Howell

            D’Oh!

        • ColdCountry

          True. And some languages don’t have words like pink, or violet, if I remember rightly. They’d go nuts in a Sherwin Williams store.

        • lymis

          I thought so too. But then I realized that it wasn’t because they didn’t see the colors. They just considered them different shades of a single color name.

          Sky blue is very different from Navy blue. It’s easy to imagine a color scheme that separated them into different words rather than different shades.

          I read a thing once where they tracked the development of color names. Red was always the first (blood being important) to separate out. Other colors came along later, generally in order of importance or how common it was.

      • TampaDink

        When I was a kid, I thought that when my parents jokingly referred to their childhood & all time before as “the dark ages” combined with all of the photos being in black & white from that time, that color was relatively new.

        • That_Looks_Delicious

          Ha! Pleasantville.

          • TampaDink

            That is a perfect analogy of what I thought everything looked like before the 1950’s.

          The theory goes it just wasn’t a classification. I think the radiolab piece I posted has a bit about a south american tribe tribe that had no color for blue. They could see it, but when asked to identify the blue square in a set that included green, they had trouble. The distinction just wasn’t present.

    Too late gurl. It’s already been took. The rainbow is gay, gay, gay from now until forever and over the entire globe. Maybe if you all hadn’t been such assholes over the past 2000 odd years things could have been different …..

    I wonder how much at Ark encounter is under water.. (in debt).. no pun intended? No rainbow in the world will save it from sinking altogether.

  • TimJ

    That isn’t a rainbow, it is a few flood lights in a random order. Major fail.

  • Matthew Delemos

    I hope this publicity stunt is due to attendance problems.

    • safari

      Maybe he’s thinking we’ll protest to generate media?

  • Sashineb

    ” … Christian God is synonymous with death, destruction, and genocide. He loves you, and that’s why he has to constantly threaten you.” And all because xian god can’t forgive Eve for that incident involving one stinking apple.

    • Christopher

      Their god abhorred knowledge from the very beginning. Explains it all really.

  • Silver Badger

    Isn’t it odd that this man feels he has to take something that we are perfectly willing to share?

    • ColdCountry

      There’s the problem; he doesn’t want to share. Selfish and self-centered, like so many of them.

  • Cackalaquiano

    When this place finally goes under, are we going to buy it and turn it into a gay themed resort?

    I, Too
    BY LANGSTON HUGHES

    I, too, sing America.

    I am the darker brother.
    They send me to eat in the kitchen
    When company comes,
    But I laugh,
    And eat well,
    And grow strong.

    Tomorrow,
    I’ll be at the table
    When company comes.
    Nobody’ll dare
    Say to me,
    “Eat in the kitchen,”
    Then.

    Besides,
    They’ll see how beautiful I am
    And be ashamed—

    I, too, am America.

  • Biblical rainbow: Yawhweh promising not to drown the entire world again, including innocent children and babies. But hey, Revelations promises the next time will include famine, disease, war, and lots of fire. Just not drowning.

    LGBT rainbow: Inclusiveness, tolerance, acceptance, joy and love. Y’know stuff that Jesus guy never said anything about…oh wait, he did.

  • Blake J Butler

    When this place falls under, from their inability to make their payments, should a LGBT charity buy it up, as a sort of metaphorical middle finger to Ham and the other “christians”.

    Maybe toy with him and tell Ham and other evangelicals, that the space will be used for massive orgies, using the space for a hall of endless gay sex parties. Night, day, day, and night.

    He might just have a heart attack on the spot.

          If we can make the Russian River a destination we can make anything a destination.

          • Lars Littlefield

            If Dolly Parton can make Dollywood a destination then we can certainly make a failed Jesus Center a place gays will want to be. Of course, we’ll need to renovate, build a spectacular gay water park (imagine the possibilities) and four star dining venues. Deluxe camping bungalows, an Elizabeth Arden that sells royal jelly for our bums . . . so many possibilities.

          • MBear

            I would rather have a root canal than visit dollywood. YMMV. 😉

    Leviticus 26:14-16,22,25,29-33
    “But if you will not listen to me and carry out all these commands, and if you reject my decrees and abhor my laws and fail to carry out all my commands and so violate my covenant, then I will do this to you: I will bring upon you sudden terror, wasting diseases and fever that will destroy your sight and drain away your life. You will plant seed in vain, because your enemies will eat it.

    I will send wild animals against you, and they will rob you of your children, destroy your cattle and make you so few in number that your roads will be deserted.

    And I will bring the sword upon you to avenge the breaking of the covenant. When you withdraw into your cities, I will send a plague among you, and you will be given into enemy hands.

    You will eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters. I will destroy your high places, cut down your incense altars and pile your dead bodies on the lifeless forms of your idols, and I will abhor you. I will turn your cities into ruins and lay waste your sanctuaries, and I will take no delight in the pleasing aroma of your offerings. I will lay waste the land, so that your enemies who live there will be appalled. I will scatter you among the nations and will draw out my sword and pursue you. Your land will be laid waste, and your cities will lie in ruins.”

      I sense a business opportunity: Selling rainbow Ark T-shirts on Etsy…in the Gay Section (and sending pics of the ad to Ham).

  • david fairfield

    I smell an executive order. lgbt tariff tax of 20% for hijacking the rainbow from the poor defenseless persecuted put upon rich white jesus anti everyone else bigots.

  • DaveW

    That thing does not look seaworthy. My tiny vessel, “the wet bar” would handle bigger waves than that monstrosity. (The tender is ‘the bar back” of course)

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    It was a great party…glad to see Ham is going to keep it going….

      I heard that Ham is renaming it PEN ISLAND.

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        HA!

  • TKW

    I have no problem sharing the rainbow. We are so much more.

    • Natty Enquirer

      But Kenny doesn’t want to share. He wants “to take the rainbow back and teach our young people its true meaning.” Then he wants to throw stones at you until you’re dead.

      • Gianni

        They have to use God as their reason/excuse to claim rights to any freaking thing they want. Makes them feel strong, powerful, righteous, good, and dominant. Unless someone has been living alone in a cave all these years, the rainbow flag is readily recognizable to virtually everyone as a symbol of gay pride. That isn’t going to change.

    • TuuxKabin

      And so much better.

  • ultragreen

    I could care less about how they light up this giant boondoggle.

    • Craig C

      I don’t know, throw in some lasers and it might make a good location for a circuit party.

      • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

        Which it likely could be when this historical abomination fails spectacularly later this year.

  • MonochromeMouse

    I love how all the colors are both the wrong shade (it looks like some kind of overly sweet tiki bar drink) and not only in the wrong order but basically the same 3 colors repeating, guess they couldn’t afford gels and had to use hard candies on flashlights or something instead.

    • Natty Enquirer

      Those are the additive RGB primaries. Probably banks of LED wash lights. They weren’t clever enough to figure out how to mix actual rainbow colors.

    • Gianni

      It does look pretty shabby.

  • Gianni

    I can just see visitors being somewhat surprised at seeing this light show for the first time and wondering why they hadn’t heard anything about Christians suddenly being nice and, obviously, welcoming to gay people. So much so that they’re even lighting the ark in the Pride Flag colors.

  • 3-Star

    I’m going to start referring to it as the “Gark” (gay ark)!

  • I’ve never been more embarrassed to live in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I’m so sorry.

    • Al Kaseltzer

      Really? I could give you about 300 other reasons!

  • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

    Roy G. Biv is quite disturbed by the color spectrum Ham used.

  • KarenAtFOH

    Oh never mind, I was wrong…

  • RoFaWh

    Finally! He sees the light.

    Be sure to wear a condom, guys, when Ham comes creeping into your beds. You never know what a jerk like that has been fucking (active or passive).

  • DaveMiller135

    Translation: Attendance is down and they’re looking for some of those gay dollars.

    It looks more like the cheap, multi-flavor sherbet house brand rather than either the gay flag or a rainbow.

    The pic Joe chose is brilliant as usual: those “Xmas” trees look like ever so many sharp pointy teeth; and of course the rainbow is all very wrong. Only these people could make a rainbow seem predatory.

    • grada3784

    The cost to hams’ folly is just as goofy. A 1 day adult admission is $40.

Believe it or not they offer a 7 day unlimited pass also. Man, there are so many fools born every day.

    • Friday

      I’ve seen photos of the inside of that place. Apart from that they didn’t even try to make the joinery look remotely ancient, even with the steel ties and bolts it’s not an ‘Ark’ so much as an “Exercise In How A Fucking Barn Don’t Scale Up That Way.”

      • djcoastermark

        I’m sure you have seen the drone footage of the place. It is too funny when it goes around the back side and you see it is just a few buildings connected together with a fake facade on the front to look like a boat. That and yes, what I’ve seen in pictures of the inside, well, I just roll my eyes.

  • No More GOP.

    Isn’t this thing bankrupt yet?

    • djcoastermark

      close. It isn’t doing very well. Pity the poor taxpayers in KY that voted to give this con man their money. not.

    Does he think ROYGBIV is a liberal conspiracy? That’s objectively how rainbows look!

    What the hell is with his shitty alternative rainbow?

      He has alternative facts, of course.

    • Friday

      Listen. I occasionally point out I’m an actual Goddess-loving Pagan. This bullshit started with Socrates and pieces the monotheists found convenient later. This is just more of the damn disconnect that made Galileo a retractive hero for dropping like a golf ball and a bowling ball at the same time. Sixteen hundred fucking years later. Of course it’s fucking stupid. Look at it. That’s how the Christians and other monotheists get people to try tearing the fucking cerebral cortex out of civilization itself, over and over.

      Capiche?

  • I cannot take seriously any adult human who believes the Noah’s Ark story literally. It has plot holes you could drive a giant boat through, and really, light refracted differently before the “fall of man?”

    Leave it to ‘Creation Scientists’ to try and ‘steal back the rainbow’ for their hate, while simultaneously getting both the flag they’re complaining about and the visible spectrum completely wrong.

    This reminds me of the time some Christian was insisting to me that “Science proved the Bible because nobody could have known the stars come in different colors, like they said somewhere in the Bible.”

    Me: “Have you ever been away from city lights at night and looked up for a minute ?”

    • -M-

      Remember the whole thesis of Ham’s version of “creation science” is that there is no one but (his) God around who witnessed ancient events.

      Whereas real science says, ‘Beeotch for a start we have rocks, atoms, and photons a million times as old as your religion among our witnesses.’.

  • heyjjh

    hahaha…..i’ll bet their GAY ART DIRECTOR thought of that !!!

  • djcoastermark

    If anyone wants to experience a true Noah’s ark and have a lot of fun (at a cheaper cost too). Go to Kennywood and enter the Noahs Ark FunHouse. Money much better spent.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWlCesm8u-E

  • lymis

    We never took the rainbow away from anyone.

    They’re the ones who panicked and distanced themselves from it as soon as it became clear that gay people were using it. There’s no reason that the two couldn’t have happily coexisted. But it’s been over a generation since right-wing Christians got squicky about deciding that the rainbow was so gay that they didn’t dare be associated with it.

    So fine, readopt it. You were free to do so all along. You just can’t “take it back” because it was never yours in the first place. You can choose to use it, but you can’t take it away from us any more than we took it away from you.

    On the other hand, if you genuinely want to “take it away from gay people” you can be so tacky and obnoxious about it that gay people don’t want anyone to think that we’re associated with you. This Ark thing looks like a good start. Yikes.

  • The Milkman

    The thing about equality is that it’s not like a pie. Giving it to one group doesn’t mean that everyone else gets less. In that way, it’s like the Biblical story of the loaves and the fishes. Go ahead. Use the rainbow image. It means different things to different people, but almost always it’s a positive message. We could use a little more positivity right now, particularly from people like Mr. Ham.

  • Bad Tom

    The story of Noah in the Bible has nothing to do with marriage. Gay people are not mentioned.

    The colored lights on the so-called “Ark Encounter” are not configured as a rainbow.

    A multi-fuckup, which we’ve come to expect from these clowns.

  • TKW

    Just curious but who would even see it at night? Do they have bingo night or something?

    Um, no. Not even Skittles could do that!

    Living in the South now, and this week I saw a super creepy TV ad for this monstrosity.

    I can’t possibly imagine what kid brought up on video games is going to want to go see what’s essentially a big building with fake animals in it.

    Tits up in under 4 years. That’s my prediction.

  • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

    Speaking of endangered animals: The USDA website removed a bunch of animal welfare info from their website. You need a Freedom of Information Act Request to get it now.

    That’s not a rainbow. That’s just a ship with lots of colors. Rainbows actually have a color order. Good try idiot.

  • Schlukitz

    Taking the rainbow back is merely symbolic of all the other things that the creationista want to take back from the Gays.

    Freedom of public assembly.

    The right to make love to whomever we chose without being criminalized.

    The right to work for the Federal government.

    The right to serve in the military.

    The right to marry a same sex partner.

    But mostly…the right to even exist or breathe the same air that they do!

  • Barry William Teske

    ‘Because of this, many Christians shy away from using the rainbow colors. Aarghh!’
    “There. It has been fixed just for you, Ken. Don’t be hamming it up.”

  • Barry William Teske

    OK. OK. Try this then.
    Short and sweet!
    Warning!
    This story has an Arc in it.
    Aargh!

    I heard a rather conspiratorial rumour that there were actually 3 of every animal boarding, and not just the 2 so diligently implied as, since the flood.
    Apparently, Ken Ham was there, and, if not in body then for sure he was out (there) in spirit.
    Which (possibly) means his 6000+ years timeline brings with it the wisdom teeth and truth serum’s of the day.
    Hey! Ken! Ham! What can you tell us about 3 some’s and missing middles?
