Earlier this week, apologist Ken Ham posted a series of images including some of the nation’s top leaders who are a part of the LGBTQ+ community, saying that he never thought he’d see the day when our culture exemplified the likeness of Sodom and Gomorrah.
“Looked at the news and these are the sort of headlines we see,” Ham tweeted. “I must admit, I never thought I would see such a day as we’re seeing with political leaders fostering an environment for wickedness to permeate the culture. One reads about Sodom and Gomorrah but we never thought we would see something similar happening in our day. ‘Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees,’ (Isaiah 10:1).”
The images included a retired military colonel who posed in his uniform wearing a “pup play” mask, which is a part of a sadomasochistic activity wherein men behave like young dogs during a sexual encounter, typically with other men.
Another image included a man who is believed to be the retired colonel’s romantic partner, an officer in our nation’s military also wearing a “pup play” mask.
One image was of the White House lit up with rainbow colors to represent LGBTQ+ pride.
Ham also included a photo of Sam Brinton, a Department of Energy official who was recently fired after being accused of stealing luggage. Brinton was hired by the Biden Administration as one of the federal government’s first gender nonbinary officials.
Ham’s post comes on the heels of President Joe Biden signing of the Respect for Marriage Act into law earlier this week. The law has codified protections for same-sex marriage and interracial couples, though many Christians fear it will negatively impact religious liberty.
Nonbinary drag queen Marti Gould Cummings was invited to the bill’s signing at the White House, and Ham included an image of Cummings in his collage of those “fostering an environment of wickedness.”
In 2020, Cummings tweeted, “I’m a proud fem queer nonbinary drag artist who wants to defund police and fund education, affordable housing, social work and I’m running for city council along with a lot of other queer candidates and we are going to fight for you the people, not police unions, not real estate, but for you.”
Cummings has said in the past that “anyone who thinks drag isn’t for children is wrong, Drag is expression, and children are such judgment-free beings. They don’t really care what you’re wearing, just what you’re performing.”
