Creation Museum Turned Down
Ken Ham rants: Is Groupon Anti-Christian?
Groupon.com is a website that promotes a "deal of the day" where businesses can offer their product or service for at least 50 percent off. Groupon makes its money by taking a significant percentage of the price.
The Creation Museum had signed a contract to advertise to the Cincinnati area, offering our Individual Annual Pass and Family Annual Pass on Groupon.com for one day at 50 percent off.
On the week the advertisement was to appear, Groupon called to inform us that the marketing department of Groupon had decided that the Creation Museum was "too controversial," and they canceled our contract.
However, in other markets (such as Atlanta) they have featured the local natural history museum-which of course is totally evolutionary and teaches children that man is an evolved animal-but I guess that is not controversial!
You're correct, Ken. That concept is not at all controversial.
Claiming that the earth is 6,000 years old isn't controversial either. It's just stupid. Maybe Groupon avoids dealing with organizations that are run by stupid people.
