Ken Ham invitation to speak revoked

Posted in Quiverfull, Quiverfull Movement tagged , , , at 9:07 pm by hopewellslibraryoflife

The powers-that-be of the upcoming Great Homeschool Convention has revoked their invitation to Answers in Genesis founder and creator of the Creation Museum, Ken Ham.  Ham spoke out against the theology in Jay Wile’s Apologia science texts. Both “Answers in Genesis” and Apologia are very popular with right-wing Christian homeschoolers. The Duggars, of “19 Kids and Counting” actively promote  “Answers in Genesis” and the Creation Museum thru their show and web site. Apologia is a best-selling college-prep science program very widely used among  Christian homeschoolers  of all political views. This post may be updated if additional coverage appears that adds to the story significantly.
