Creationist Ken Ham: ‘Atheist TV’ Is Evidence Of Intolerance To Christians
Creationist Ken Ham, the founder of Answers in Genesis, is not very pleased with the premiere of Atheist TV this week, the world’s first atheism-based television network. On his blog, Ham writes, “Atheists are increasingly becoming more active and intentional in preaching their religion of godlessness. I’ve always found it fascinating how they think their purpose is to impose their message that there is no purpose onto people!”
Atheists feel the same way about evangelicals. Spot the difference (there is none):
“It is incredible that atheists spend so much time, effort, and money arguing against Someone that they don’t even believe exists!,” he writes. “Where are all their books, websites, and magazines that argue against the mythical Easter Bunny? This is because they do know God exists but they are suppressing the truth in unrighteousness.”
Atheist TV offers its content free-of-charge, delivering it through Roku, a streaming video service that brings Internet programming to customers’ TV sets, according to The Blaze.
Ham claims the initiative is evidence of “the growing intolerance towards Christianity in particular — and other religions.”
Apparently, only one opinion should be tolerated.
Won’t someone think of the children?
He adds, “Sadly, this new TV channel is not just targeting adults with a hopeless message of godlessness, but they are also trying to indoctrinate children into an atheistic worldview.”
The indoctrination of children by evangelicals is probably what Ham meant to point to.
“Laws of logic shouldn’t exist in a completely random materialistic universe that the atheists believe in — and yet they do!,” he added. I have no idea what that means in reference to the topic but I’m sure it’s totes important. I’m sure it could be applied to his theory that the world is only 7,000 years-old and humans coexisted with Dinosaurs, though.
