Let me cry him a fucking river...
And like so many other reich wing religious types, blames atheists and "secular" media for his self inflicted problemsQuote
Sad monkey: A bitter Ken Ham blames atheists and the secular media for the perceived financial failure of his Ark Park.
In a recent blog post to his Answers in Genesis website, leading creationist Ken Ham laments the supposed power of atheists and the “secularist media,” complaining that they are damaging the reputation of his Ark Encounter, and the economy of the surrounding local businesses
In other words, Ken Ham blames atheists for his trouble. Ham is refusing to take responsibility for his own failure, and refusing to take responsibility for his broken promises to the citizens and business community of Grant County, Kentucky.
Ham is desperate to counter the narrative that his Ark Encounter and Creation Museum are not delivering on the promises he made. He is particularly upset with a recent article from The Lexington Herald Leader that explores Ham’s failure to deliver on financial promises made to community members and local businesses.

Thank you both! Being a SAHM has been the most rewarding and most demanding job I’ve personally ever had* - my (very adorable) boss is highly demanding and I’m constantly “on call” without always having backup to take over for me. Some days I’m able to clean half the house with no trouble and other days I’m lucky if I’m able to take a simple shower or finish my meal without constant interruptions or meltdowns. Cleaning the car? Not a priority most of the time, especially now that I’m pregnant again and we’re trying to sell our condo. There’s only so much I can do in the time I have available each day - other parents might be able to keep their cars spotless and that’s pretty awesome, but I’m not one of them.
So yeah. This specific criticism honestly just reeks of BEC to me. A dirty car isn’t something I’m going to worry about when it comes to the Dills - whether they’re emotionally or intellectually stunting their kids or pushing hateful beliefs are things I’m concerned with though.
*Experiences will obviously vary and I’m only speaking for myself here. If you’ve found it to be easier than other jobs you’ve had then I offer you a double high five because you’re a rock star. And if you have found it as difficult or more so than I have then I’d like to offer you a big hug, some chocolate, and a nap because you’re a rockstar too (same goes for working parents as well - parenting can be hard regardless of circumstances.)
Boy, for an old person some of this brings me back and some of this confuses me. Back in the day when "feminism" first came into the lexicon, one tenet was that SAHM, although that acronym didn't exist, was in fact a job. That maintaining a home, caring for children and so on are actual work that should be recognized as work and compensated as work. That is one reason, for example, that "feminists" fought for laws that considered the work women did in the home when deciding, for example in the event of a divorce, that a woman's (spouse, but face it usually the woman's) contributions made the distribution of assets, or potential assets--such as a pension-- the assets of the couple and not of the man. "Feminists" were active in fighting for the financial rights and the dignity of women who worked in the home.
Of course, part of that was also that women who did not have a male provider but who were also taking care of their children were in fact performing the same necessary and valuable social function. That a woman doing that work while not attached to a particular male should also be recognized, rather than vilified as a lazy welfare queen, revealed as much as any purported liberal crap, how the power structure feels about "women's work."
Women fighting women about it isn't a new idea. And it never, ever has benefited any women.

I had those things in about 4 different sizes...mine were orange neon plastic, about 1/8" thick. We would put tape on the edges so the ink wouldn't bleed through. That was the cool part of manual drafting...not many goofy angles like 23 degrees.
Did anything ever come of that Oscar Wilde aestheticism special that we were promised back in November? 🤔
