What a delightful and well deserved development! The Australian sister organization to Ken Ham’s Answers in Genesis is hammering him with a nasty lawsuit.

The Brisbane-based Creation Ministries International has filed a lawsuit in Queensland’s Supreme Court against Mr Ham and his Kentucky-based Answers in Genesis ministry seeking damages and accusing him of deceptive conduct in his dealings with the Australian organisation.

The suit focuses on a dispute over the Australian organisation’s production of a creationist magazine, sold in the US to more than 35,000 subscribers, and has led to revelations about the three-year battle between the two ministries.

A 40-page report, written by Mr Briese and obtained by The Australian, reveals a bitter power struggle across the Pacific that began with a challenge to the power Mr Ham allegedly wielded over the ministries.

I honestly don’t care who wins. The ideal conclusion will be that of the Kilkenny cats: mutual self-destruction.

    As I said last December,

    I’m still expecting something truly scandalous to come out about AiG’s finances. To put the matter bluntly, what they try to defend is not true, and you can only defend an untruth by lying. If you adopt methods of dishonesty as your career, then I can only imagine that you inure yourself to worse sins in all aspects of your life.

    Mark my words: it’ll all come out in the IRS audits or in the divorce courts.

    [Emphasis mine]

    A reading from the Revelation of Ham, Book 6:14-17:

    And Lo! I beheld the Lord, seated in judgment on high. Then the Angel for the Plaintiff madeth me taketh the stand, and anointing his throat with ice water, produced from his robes a scroll of such magnificence that my eyes were moved to cry, and my throat did swell up, and I was overcome.

    “Looketh upon this affidavit, and affirm that the signature placed upon it is thine,” he commanded, and his voice did boom such that the Stenographer of the Lord needeth not strain to hear his words.

    ‘a dear man’? ‘…in like manner is a great christian’?

    So, liars make great Christians?

    Good to know.

    do they have greta garbo at your museum, Martin?

    I rather think the men in the white coats have already visited you.

    the only question is:

    did you escape, or do they have internet access at the facility?
