So they really are all connected?!

Growing up, my parents received magazines and catalogs from Vision Forum, No Greater Joy, Above Rubies, Answers in Genesis, Focus on the Family, God’s World Publications, HSLDA, and more. I sometimes noticed that the various publications cross advertised, and sometimes even reprinted articles, but this video still surprised me.

I probably shouldn’t have been surprised. It’s just that Answers in Genesis focuses specifically on Young Earth Creationism and is extremely popular in even mainstream evangelical and fundamentalist Christianity, so I guess I didn’t expect to see a direct tie – an unqualified mutual endorsement – between it and Vision Forum, perhaps the chief defender of Christian Patriarchy. Are they all connected? I’m starting to think the answer is yes.
