Many, many people emailed me this story today, so many thanks go out for the opportunity to savor this delicious story: seems the guy who plays Adam in the Creation Museum’s multimedia exhibit has been showing off his serpent in other gardens, prompting museum folks to pull the video from their exhibit.
The actor, Eric Linden, owns a graphic Web site called Bedroom Acrobat, where he has been pictured, smiling alongside a drag queen, in a T-shirt brandishing the site’s sexually suggestive logo. The Web site, which has a network of members, allows users to post explicit stories and photos. He also sells clothing for SFX International, whose initials appear on clothing to spell “SEX” from afar. It promotes “free love,”“pleasure” and “thrillz.”
Gotta love thrillz. Of course, Linden seems to have his head on straight – both of them:
“For the Creation Museum, I did what I did as an actor. It doesn’t necessarily mean I believe in evolution or a believe in creation,” Linden said. “I’m hired to get a point across. On the flip side, if I was hired to play a murderer, that doesn’t mean I’d go out and kill somebody. It’s make-believe.”
Yet the museum isn’t seeing it that way:
“We are currently investigating the veracity of these serious claims of his participation in projects that don’t align with the biblical standards and moral code upon which the ministry was founded,” Answers for Genesis spokesman Mark Looy said in a written statement.
Oh dear, oh dear. Only the purest of actors can participate, it seems. There are so many to choose from, too.
In keeping with the moral code and standards upon which this site was founded, I won’t name all the many, many generous and fabulously-dressed individuals who sent me this link for our collective enjoyment. So perhaps it was the person next to you, or the dude driving just a little too slow on the highway, or the checkout lady at Target. You just don’t know, so be grateful to everyone you meet, as they might be one of the folks who spread this little bit of joy today.
