Ken Ham: Maher will suffer "second death" from "God of grace and mercy"

On March 23, 2014, Ken Ham of Answers In Genesis posted a lengthy rant against Bill Maher on his website over the latter's ridicule of the story of Noah and the estimated 60% of Americans who believe in it.

Maher, a long-time critic of organized religion, had previously ridiculed the story of Noah for its ridiculous fantasy elements and a version of God who is a "psychotic mass murderer" for wiping out the entire human race.

Like all of the other American Taliban talking heads who have lashed out at Maher for his criticism, Ken Ham does not know how to respond except to kick and scream that Bill Maher will go to Hell for his blasphemy one day:

So why does God allow Bill Maher to continue his increasing God-hating comments? He really is tempting God. It’s as if he’s saying, "Come on God, I'm saying more and more outrageous things about You — come on — come and get me!" Bill Maher is blaming God for death because he does not want to accept that he is a sinner in need of salvation. He wants to be his own god — he shakes his fist at the God who created man and also provides the gift of salvation for those who will receive it.

Ham proceed to claim that he is "reminded that God is a God of grace and mercy," and that "all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

You are indeed reading that correctly. Ken Ham's opinion is that a God "of grace and mercy" will condemn Bill Maher to Hell just for poking fun of him.

Back in reality, between the time when Bill Maher made his remarks and the publication of this article, the most fanatical of all in the American Taliban passed away. So if there is a God pulling strings to make things happen, the evidence would imply he is on the side of Maher.
