At the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky, leader Ken Ham has announced that the modern-day replica of Noah’s Ark will now be bathed at night in rainbow-colored light in an effort to reclaim the symbol of the rainbow as a promise from God to Man, according to Fox News.
On the Ark Encounter Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/arkencounter/?fref=mentions Ham explained the reasoning behind illuminating the ark:
“We now have new permanent rainbow lights at the Ark Encounter so all can see that it is God’s rainbow and He determines its meaning in Genesis 6,” he said. “The rainbow is a reminder God will never again judge the wickedness of man with a global Flood—next time the world will be judged by fire.”
The ark, approximately 500 feet in length, is the centerpiece of the biblical theme park, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors per year.
“The Ark is lit permanently at night with a rainbow to remind the world that God owns it and He decrees it’s a sign of His covenant with man after the Flood—Christians need to take back the rainbow as we do at the Ark Encounter,” said Ham.
The decision has infuriated LBGTQ activists.
“This is Ken Ham’s sad attempt to take back the rainbow symbol from the LGBTQ community,” ran a headline in the Orlando Weekly.
“It makes the ark look incredibly gay,” said Kentucky Fairness Campaign’s Chris Hartman to USA Today.
