You really cannot make this up: Ken Ham, Australia’s Creationist Grifter in Kentucky, is suing for rain damage to his Ark biblical amusement park (with zip lines! That’s NOT scriptural).
The owner of the life-size replica of Noah’s Ark in Northern Kentucky has sued its insurers for refusing to cover, of all things … rain damage.
Ark Encounter, which unveiled the 510-foot-long model in 2016, says that heavy rains in 2017 and 2018 caused a landslide on its access road, and its five insurance carriers refused to cover nearly $1 million in damages…
The park is open, said Melany Ethridge, a spokeswoman at the attraction’s Dallas-based public relations firm, who only laughed when informed that Ark Encounter had sued over flood damage…
Ethridge subsequently issued a statement that said: “The lawsuit speaks for itself. We don’t have anything to add at this time, other than to say that we are highly confident of the merits of our case as we seek a fair resolution to the matter.”
The statement also said Ark Encounter guests have been unaffected by the work being done at the access road. Hours of operation were never affected.”
As you may recall, Ham somehow got the rubes in Kentucky to give him taxpayer dollars to build this travesty and he openly discriminates by not hiring non-believers, or other believers, the ‘mos and so on, effectively making this biblical amusement park state religion. It’s outrageous.
So it wasn’t even 40 Day/Nights and the flood damaged his damn boat grift? Jeebus, take the tiller! Maybe Dawg Almighty is sending ol’ Ham a sign?
