The man who plays Adam in a video aired at a Bible-based creationist museum has led a different life outside the Garden of Eden, flaunting his sexual exploits online and modeling for a clothing line that promotes free love.
Oh noz! Not sexual exploits and free love! Help me, Jebus!
After learning about his activities Thursday, the Creation Museum in Kentucky pulled the 40-second video in which he appears.
“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.
LOL. Hmm. Is owning a website called “Bedroom Acrobat” on which one “has been pictured, smiling alongside a drag queen, in a T-shirt brandishing the site’s sexually suggestive logo” irreconcilable with the biblical standards and moral code of the Creation Museum, or isn’t it?! It’s too close to call! I’m on pins and needles waiting for the conclusion of their investigation!
The actor, Eric Linden … also sells clothing for SFX International, whose initials appear on clothing to spell “SEX” from afar. It promotes “free love,” “pleasure” and “thrillz.”
Only thrillz? What about spillz and chillz? If it’s only thrillz, that’s not such a big deal, but if SFX also promotes spillz and chillz, I can see where Answers for Genesis might be right to be concerned.
Then again, Linden, borrowing a page from the other rightwing
rentboys posterboys with sordid pasts, has said he’s no longer affiliated with the site, so big whoop, people. Although, he maybe should have also borrowed the page in which he unconvincingly attests to be a true believer in the cause, because this “reasonable” shit isn’t going to fly with the wingers:
Linden said he is very proud to play Adam. “But just because I’m Adam on the screen, that doesn’t mean I’m Adam off the screen,” he said. “What I do shouldn’t have anything to do with who they think Adam is.”
…”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.”
In ironic related news, Linden’s website announces his next project will be a television show called I’m in Hell, in which he has evidently been cast as Jason Biggs’ double.
From the Garden of Eden straight to Hell. His career’s already spanned more ground than most struggling actors’ ever will.
