Evangelist Can’t Handle “Big Strapping Men” Having Sex in a Christian-Owned B&B | Hemant Mehta | Friendly Atheist | Patheos
E.W. Jackson, the Christian evangelist and failed politician, can’t stop thinking about what two gay men might do in the privacy of a bedroom.

On his radio show “The Awakening” yesterday, Jackson was ranting about the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear a case involving a Christian woman that owns a bed & breakfast in Hawaii. That woman refused to rent a room to a lesbian couple, got sued over it, and lost. Her lawyers wanted the Supreme Court to overturn that decision, but the justices decided not to get involved.

Jackson was furious. Instead of talking about the law, though, he explained in great detail what two men might do together in a hotel room.

Ark Encounter Sold Fewer Tickets This February Than Last February | Hemant Mehta | Friendly Atheist | Patheos
Thanks to a public record request by local paleontologist Dan Phelps, we now have the numbers for February. You can read more background about how it’s calculated here.

The bottom line? Ark Encounter had 16,328 paying visitors in February. That’s less than the 17,961 they had last February. The low overall number isn’t all that surprising given that it’s really freaking cold, which is bad for theme parks in general, but keep in mind that Creationist Ken Ham has also made a big deal about the new ice skating rink outside the boat. It’s unclear how many people visited the Ark for the skating and not so much to learn about Noah.
