Creationist Ken Ham makes unmarried Noah’s Ark employees sign chastity vows before hiring them

Published

on

The state of Kentucky is hoping that creationist Ken Ham’s new Ark Encounter theme park will create a lot of jobs, but it turns out those jobs come with a pretty big catch.

Fox13Now reports that Ham makes all prospective Ark employees sign a statement where they not only affirm they believe in creationism, but also disavow homosexuality and premarital sex. Ham is able to do this despite the fact that he’s receiving $18 million in sales tax incentives to build the Ark and boost tourism in the area.

Not everyone in the Ark’s hometown of Williamstown is enthusiastic about this, however. Baptist minister Bob Fox tells Fox13Now that he’s concerned about the erosion of church-state separation with projects such as this.

“There’s kinds of laws called ‘Sharia,’ where people have used legislation and the government to promote a religious faith, and I think we as Christians need to be careful that we continue to be Christian, and to be Christian in the context of the United States,” he said.

Regardless, the Ark is expected to open July 7, where it will be presumably staffed by dozens of sex-starved employees.

Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."

Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.

Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.

Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!

Published

on

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
