Ministry has New Year's Eve Times Square message
PETERSBURG, KY - The Christian ministry that operates the Creation Museum in Kentucky will be running a video ad in New York's Times Square during the annual New Year's Eve celebration.
Answers in Genesis President Ken Ham says the 15-second message will be seen seven minutes per hour over Broadway this New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.
It opens with the words: "To all our intolerant liberal friends." Then a white cross appears, followed by the words: "Thank God for freedom."
The video closes with the message: "Brought to you by answersingenesis.org and the First Amendment."
The ad will also be shown outdoors in Washington, D.C., and Boston beginning Jan. 5.
The ministry is currently at work building a new attraction in northern Kentucky based on the biblical story of Noah's Ark. Ham says secular opposition to that project and other public expressions of Christianity inspired the billboard campaign.
