Illinois town cancels trip to Ken Ham's Ark Encounter, Creation Museum after atheists file complaint

An Illinois town has canceled a trip to the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum and Ark Encounter in Kentucky after one of the nation’s leading atheist legal groups filed a complaint.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a Wisconsin-based group that advocates for a strict separation of church and state, is hailing victory after the city of Charleston, Illinois, nixed plans for a community trip to see the creationist exhibits.

The trip was planned by the town’s parks and recreation department and was scheduled for Sept. 30 through Oct. 4, 2019. ...

Good call Doc! I doubt any pecking or butting will be necessary. As soon they get one look at a three-toothed sandhiller grilling up some possum backstrap, those FFRF folks'll take off in their environmentally friendly smart cars and head off to somewhere more hospitable to their kind, say Nebraska for example. As for the tourists, they'll simply love the thirty mile hike it takes to get to the BDA. And as long as they don't break their ankles in armadillo holes or get attacked by rabid coons, I think they'll enjoy the hike to your place as well.

Maybe the good villagers would like to visit the headquarters of the Mississippi Backwoods Duck Association and then come see the Possum Hollow Goat Museum. And if any of them there FFRF yahoos object, we’ll have ‘em pecked and butted clear out of the country. Or they could go to Nebraska and see, uh, hmm, maybe they better just come on to Mississippi.

crimes under sharia law.

Other clear religious activities such as yoga, meditation and dare I say, Halloween also do not bother these atheist types.

It is time for Christians to stand up, instead of quailing in dear, and rolling over when these lawyers do their threatening.

Though I am an outsider and a foreigner as far as the USA is concerned, I am absolutely staggered at the hypocrisy of the atheists, and the lack of response from the Christians at the illegal and unconstitutional acts of FFRF and other such atheistical pressure groups and their top well paid and successful lawyers.

For at least 180 or so years no one was bothered in the slightest about prayers on high school football fields or at graduation ceremonies, prayers before council meetings, chaplains in the military, manger scenes in town halls or central squares, or crosses on military cemeteries.

It was only since the 1960’s, when activists like Madelyn Murray O’Hare got busy, and decided that they would illegally enforce atheistic secular humanism as the new state religion of the USA, and to ban all expressions of Judeo-Christianity from public life.

Their enthusiasm to extirpate religion does not, however, seem to extend to Islam, (because they know jolly that the Muslims would not stand for it), and there is nothing the secular left fear more than thousands of angry Muslims out in the streets, despite their rather unfashionable and politically incorrect views on such things as LGBT and Transgender rights, women’s rights, the death penalty and physical mutilation for cert

BTW folks.
I was just wondering there about Ken Ham's Museum of Bible artifacts and the ark.

Do you think the Reformers would have destroyed them in the 16th century?

In other words would they have considered them as idolatrous like the icons on Romish church walls?

Exod 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:"

Signs of the times!!!

It is curious though that Satan appears to be winning.
And yet his followers seem to be trying to gain more influence among the nations?

Why are they panicking about a few Christians and their strange mythology?

Or is there another reason behind their attacks on the Christians in general.

Great point. Unless it serves a greater cause, I guess, why attack your own?

Well said, overall.

The Ark is a tourist attraction. It’s not a church service. It’s only as religious as a natural history museum. It’s a tourist attraction made by certain Christians as opposed to a tourist attraction made by humanists. The problem with everyone on this and all similar issues, Jim especially, is that humanism isn’t treated as the religion that it is. If we treated it as a religion like all the others, no one would go anywhere or do anything because we’d realize there is no epistemological neutrality. Got it, Jim?

On a side note, I took my family to see the ARK a couple years ago. They were things I liked about it, and things I absolutely did not really like about it, but overall it was a fun experience… If a little overpriced

Quite so, Christopher,

Fear is not the only thing, but then we have those spiritual powers on the attack, and they are hardly likely to attack their own, like Islam, RCC, etc etc.

So there is a spiritual battle going on all around us, God versus the devil, demons versus angels, and all this being worked out in front of our very eyes, every day of the week, and will continue until the second advent.

God's people will always be a target according to the world. And Jesus said if they hated me, they will hate you also. Those born once only will persecute those born twice.

At present, we are preparing for the greatest tribulation this world has seen. Sure we are. This is just the vanguard, wait till the full force arrives and things start cracking off. Nations against nations, wars and earthquakes, people trembling for fear of what is coming on the earth. Psunamis? Just a sprinkling compared to what is coming. Earthquakes? They'll need a bigger Richter Scale to read the sort that is arriving soon. Astronomy? Check out those shifts in the ever-stable universe. Fires? God's chosen method to punish evil.

The King is coming! Hallelujah!

Ok John, gotcha...I'm perfectly aware of the reason...fear. My position is that if the LGBTQ crowd is consistent with their demands for tolerance, inclusion, and anti-bigotry, then the Muslims wouldn't be completely off-limits, and they would at least involve the ACLU, and harass the local media, etc., to death until it was addressed, without having to be directly involved and putting their own selves in danger. Even so though, there are lone wolves who don't care, and would enter into one of these shops anyway, at least once in a while, somewhere across this country, but I never hear of it happening, so the focus seems to be on Christians only.

The hipocrisy is palpable, and beyond obvious. I do understand lone individuals opting not to cause a scene in a Muslim owned business, but what I don't understand is why everyone beyond these don't seem to care either, but will scream about the bigoted Christians, e.g, the ACLU, civil liberties groups, local law enforcement, and mainstream media, etc. Not a peep. Fear, a war against biblical Christianity, or both? Would fear be why an entire side of Dearborn, MI has been allowed to be overtaken by Muslims, forcing all of the non-muslim business owners out and even change all of street signs? Maybe.

Islam can be taught in school, classrooms can have, wear a hajib day, and they can even take field trips to mosques, and not a peep. Muslim owned businesses have selectively posted, we don't service sodomites, signs on their storefront bakery, etc., windows, and hardly a peep.
Hi Christopher,

I'm just giving you an opportunity to understand why there is never a peep from these people about Muslims. If you don't believe me, go to a Muslim bakery and ask for a loaf with John 14:6 carved into the crust, and then, if they refuse, you can take them to court. See how quickly the death threats appear.

Jimbo missing the point as usual. The residents were paying for the cost of their trip. Going to a Christian museum and Noah’s Ark exhibit along with a trip to a zoo and a riverboat sightseeing tour is not establishing any religion It’s their money, not the cities. If they want to pay for a trip to SLC or a mosque even though it is not a choice I would recommend, it is their money and their life

Jim’s the one needs to put his thinking cap on

A single atheist group scares off a whole group of people...

Wouldn't be nice if a single Christian group scared liberals from pushing their agendas...

Allie, the first Bibles published in the United States were printed by the federal government. How far we have fallen!
Very good points, Ken. On this Pearl Harbor Day, I can’t help wondering if a similar attack occurred today whether or not we would be able to respond in time to save the nation, or if party politics would prevent us from responding at all. It’s no longer about love of country (or what the liberals derisively call nationalism), but all about the agenda of the party.
