Last night, New Year’s Eve, the radical “creationist” organization, Answers in Genesis, spent who knows how many thousands of dollars to run the following ad in Time Square during the US’s biggest NYE party.
Time Square is not the only place AiG plans on promoting this message; the above digital billboard is scheduled to air in DC and Boston as well as AiG’s hometown.
I’m just going to say it. If you’re reading this and if you give financially to Answers in Genesis, please prayerfully consider withdrawing your support.
This is not the message of Jesus. AiG’s message proclaims nothing more than “MY! rights,” the antithesis of the cross.
Sadly, this is not an isolated incident with this group: this campaign expresses AiG’s general posture which truncates the grace and good news of Christ.
