Creation Museum Bars "Gay" Couple

A same-sex "couple" was told they couldn't attend a date night event at the Creation Museum in Kentucky and, according to reports, they weren't even issued a refund for their tickets.

Mark Berman writes for Opppsing Views: "According to Jonathan Meador, who is a writer for the Louisville-based LEO Weekly alternative newspaper, he, his female guest and another man were waiting to enter the event on February 11th. When the other man, Joe Sonka, told security personnel that the date for whom he was waiting was another man, they were told they would not be allowed in.

"Meador and his female date were allowed to attend. 'On the website, there was no mention of sexual orientation,' he said."

Meador admitted to Berman that "Sonka had posted a blog entry in January saying that it was the patriotic duty of his readers to send a flamboyantly gay couple to the event."

Mark Looy, chief communications officer for the Creation Museum, told Berman promotional materials for the event made it clear it was for heterosexual couples only.

"The message was one of Christian marriage, which the Bible teaches is between a man and a woman," Looy said.

Meadon said the group was attending the event out of curiosity, not to cause a scene. He said to his knowledge neither Sonka nor his male guest are gay and that the two were not refunded the $71.90 cost for the two tickets they had purchased online.
