Creation Museum and Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham called atheists "intolerant" following their criticism of his recent interview with Fox and Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, where he stood up for his beliefs and commented on atheist billboards.
"So why do those who oppose AiG's message get so upset when we are able to articulate our message publicly in the secular media? It's because they really are intolerant of any beliefs but their own," Ham wrote Tuesday on Facebook.
"Anti Christian ideology has permeated much of the secular news media and so often Biblical Christians are mocked, misrepresented or attacked for what they believe by anti-Christian agenda driven reporters. Secularists have had their way so long in the secular media now, when a Christian is allowed to represent a Christian worldview, even if for a short time, the opposition goes ballistic," the creationist continued. more >>
Creation Museum President and CEO Ken Ham said the museum's recent move to allow children 12 years old and under to come and visit for free in 2014 is a response to evolutionists "indoctrinating kids in the pagan religion of evolution."
"We want to do what we can to get as many kids to the Creation Museum to learn the truth concerning God's Word in Genesis and the gospel," Ham explained in a Facebook post on Thursday.
"Evolutionists go ballistic when they learn about kids coming to the Creation Museum – so let's spread the word as much as we can – bring as many kids as possible to the Creation Museum in 2014," he urged supporters. more >>

A city in Kentucky is working with Crosswater Canyon, an owned subsidiary of Answers in Genesis, Inc., to offer $62 million in securities for prospective investors to help aid the completion of a Creationist theme park and replica of Noah's Ark. While the city of Williamstown is issuing the bond, Crosswalk Canyon is solely responsible for the bonds, not the city.
Beginning next month, Williamstown may oversee the amount of taxable securities for investors to the project overseen by Answers in Genesis, reported Brian Chappatta and Priya Anand of Business Week.
"Proceeds will help build a 510-foot (155.4-meter) wooden ship, the centerpiece of a planned biblical theme park called 'Ark Encounter.' Bond documents project the venue will attract at least 1.2 million people in its first year," wrote Chappatta and Anand. more >>

"I'm afraid we are being opposed for nothing more than the old prejudice against God," Cantor said, according to KPBS.
"It's like we're in Selma, Alabama in the 1950s and I want to have a museum on black Americans. Do you think I'll be accepted by the council of museums in Selma, Alabama?" more >>
Evangelist Ray Comfort has had his official Twitter account taken over by an unknown atheist who has given Comfort an ultimatum: stop "denigrating" nonbelievers or you won't get your Twitter account back.
Comfort, founder of Living Waters ministries, said on Friday that an unknown atheist had seized his Twitter account after one of his staff members had accidentally changed his username.

"He tweeted that I must say that I would 'no longer denigrate, blame and demonize skeptics and nonbelievers, including agnostics and atheists,'" Comfort said. more >>
