Twitter user Ken Ham seems to be slightly confused about the symbolism of the rainbow.

The president of Ark Encounter, a full-size Noah’s Ark attraction that also doubles up as 'Creation Museum', decided to light it up with the universal sign for same sex rights.

ken Ham wrote on Twitter that it was a reminder to the world, that “God owns the rainbow”.

Was Ham making a bold statement about how we can all get along, or possibly just trying to show that we are all equal in his God's eyes?

Probably not.

He also tweeted that they need to take back the rainbow.

And referred to Genesis.

Instead of being offended, Twitter had a bit of a field day with Ham's now fabulous looking boat.

People loved it.

Love is love.

Captain Ham.
