This is Ken Ham's sad attempt to take back the rainbow symbol from the LGBTQ community

In a bizarre twist, rainbow lights will now permanently cover Kentucky's creationist-themed park The Ark Encounter, which just last month an Orlando Sentinel guest columnist said would soon attract more guests than Disney because Orlando is too packed with gays and rainbows.

That actually happened.

Now, in a recent Facebook post, Ark Encounter CEO and modern caveman Ken Ham says that his Christian followers need to "take back the rainbow," because, well, it was always God's.

"The Ark is lit permanently at night with a rainbow to remind the world that God owns it and He decreed 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," says Ham.

So, if you ever drive through Kentucky and see a big gay boat off in the distance, just think of Ken Ham.
