Posted on 04/14/2011 9:16:35 AM PDT by Nachum
On April 10, Bob Seashols, a Coordination Center Officer for the Transportation and Security Administration (TSA) at the Richmond International Airport (RIC) and an administrator for Atheists Uniteds Facebook page, took part in a coordinated effort to populate pornographic images, extreme profanity, and sexually explicit anti-Christian hate-speech on the Facebook page of Ken Ham, an internationally known Christian ministry leader who serves as president of Answers in Genesis-U.S (AiG) and the popular Creation Museum, located near Cincinnati, Ohio.
Sunday afternoon visitors to Mr. Hams public person Facebook site found pages of sexually explicit commentary aimed at mocking him and deriding Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. The Internet-based Facebook assault, directed from four different Facebook accounts, involved pornographic and sadomasochistic imagery.
When interviewed about his role in what he described as a blitz against Ken Ham, Seashols stated: Somebody posted . . . an asinine statement that Ken Ham made [on an Atheist forum], and that raised our hackles. . . . It was retaliation.
Much of TSA representative Seashols comments on Ken Hams Facebook page and those offered in the interview with him were so obscene and profane as to be unprintable, but involved numerous expletives and sexually perverse commentary directed at the Trinity, as well as offensive language directed at Ken Ham himself. Seashols referred to Mr. Ham as the consummate con-man and called AiGs Ark Encounter project a [expletive withheld] scar on humanity.
When questioned why he posted such sexually explicit comments, Mr. Seashols brazenly replied: Because I can. . . . I can say whatever the h I want to say about anyone I want to. . . . Im not breaking any law.
The coordinated Facebook attack occurred at about the same time that Mr. Ham was scheduled to give a Sunday message in Dayton, Ohio, on the defense of the Christian faith. Ham was notified of the abuse of his public Facebook page and promptly took steps to remove the objectionable posts.
AiG is a ministry with an outreach to hundreds of thousands of children, some of whom may have access to Mr. Hams Facebook page. It is not known how many children, if any, were exposed to the explicit material.
Mr. Seashols tells us that he has two children of his own, girls who are 10 and 6 years old, respectively. He admitted that he make[s] sure to keep track of where they go [on the Internet]. Yet when pressed if he would be upset if his daughters stumbled upon the kind of explicit images and commentary he aided in posting to Mr. Hams public page, he backtracked: Not really. When your mother calls you a [expletive withheld] and your father calls you a [expletive withheld] they are words, nothing more than words. Words have never hurt anybody.
TSA representative Seashols actively participates in several Atheist groups on Facebook, including the National Atheist Party, and he is one of several official administrators for Atheists Uniteds Facebook page.
Professionally, Mr. Seashols has worked for the TSA since 2006 and serves as a Coordination Center Officer (COO) at Richmond International Airport (RIC). Some TSA agents have become infamous for their actions of late, both on and off duty. Seashols admitted that the TSA has a reputation worse than the IRS, yet he stated: I was not on the clock when the obscene images and comments were posted on Hams public Facebook page. It happened on my time in my house. . . . Its my private life.
According to TsaGov.s website, TSA employee Seashols is expected to demonstrate the following core competencies, among others, as a COO: creates a culture that fosters high standards of ethics; behaves in a fair and ethical manner toward others and demonstrates a sense of corporate responsibility and commitment to public service.
When asked about the heightened expectation that public servants act ethically in their private life, Seashols commented that what he did is a non-issue for the TSA. . . . [While off duty], I can say anything I d well please.
Officials at Richmonds TSA office declined to comment on Mr. Seashols behavior, pending further investigation.
Another TSA security officer who works at Richmonds airport recently made the news when it was learned that the TSA insisted that RIC issue its highest-level security clearance to the agent who has a felony conviction for robbery. Appeals made by Jon Mathiasen, RICs president and CEO, for the airport not to grant the security clearance to the TSA employee under scrutiny were initially rebuffed by TSA officials in Washington, with the TSA threatening the airport with unspecified consequences for non-compliance. When Rep. Eric I. Cantor (R-7th, VA) intervened with the TSA on the issue, they changed course and accepted the resignation of the convicted felon.
Seashols profane tirade on Sunday against Ken Ham on his public Facebook page raises questions once again regarding the integrity of some of the agents that the TSA is employing.
In commenting on the recent Facebook incident involving Seashols, a representative from AiG stated: AiG will be turning the information over to the proper authorities to investigate whether or not an actual crime took place.

I can't wait till 5-10 years of low lever radiation starts working on their bone marrow and other rapidly dividing cells.
I've never seen a bigger bunch of losers since Ameri-Corps started recruiting. It's like ACORN on steroids.
Union workers at play, nothing to see here move along.
So, let me get this straight:
Mr. SeashellsByTheSeashore posts filthy pictures on a known Christian's Facebook page, not at all concerned whether or not children may stumble upon it yet he would get upset (though he claims he wouldn't, the fact that he monitors them shows that he probably would) if his daughters stumbled upon filthy pictures on a page where such gutrot shouldn't be? So, contributing to the corruption of someone else's kid (particularly if they are the children of Christians) is perfectly fine to Mr. SeashellsByTheSeashore but he monitors his daughters' Internet viewing like a hawk to prevent such a thing happening to his kids?
Hypocrite! If such a thing is "just pictures", then why should he care what his daughters see? If he wants his kids to grow up being immoral and immature, fine. That's his prerogative, but he needs to confine his immorality and immaturity to his household.

I guess if you don’t believe in God then it’s OK to treat others like scum. It’s probably OK for them to molest children in doing their duty too. The TSA is a group of sexual deviants and perverts. They are pretty much terrorists in my opinion.
He probably hangs out (and maybe posts) at P Z Myers’ web site. Ham and the “creationists” live rent free in the heads of the neurotically obsessed P Z and the rest of the nihilists that drink the kool-aid over there.
Something we agree on Paperdoll.
Not really. When your mother calls you a [expletive withheld] and your father calls you a [expletive withheld] they are words, nothing more than words. Words have never hurt anybody.
Sounds like this guy doesnt even have an arthritic grasp of psychology or even common sense.
Ken Ham tells the truth and he is hated on the Internet by the Left and atheists for that. There are as many YouTube videos showing hatred for him as there are ones that are actually put out by him.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind

RAeally?!! What do we disagree on, prairiebreeze?
Terrorist Sanctioned Abuse
We haven’t always agreed on other subjects like nominees. But your comment on this thread was correct, IMO.
This goes a long way to explain TSA’s policy of sexually molesting innocent women and children at the airports. Why do they sexually molest six year old American girls in the name of Islamic terrorism? Because “they can.”
lol. Relief is in the eyes of the beholder.
“Oh, it’s just a Christian website. I’m so relieved.”
Yeah, like it’s better that people see the porn on the internet than in someone’s front yard.
Can you cut out the attitude, too?
Are people’s front yards now Christian sites?
And you should try remembering to ping me when you’re criticizing my comments.
