Ken Ham’s Creationists Know Exactly How to Reverse Evangelical Churn.

Ken Ham says that he totally thinks that families that do not already buy into Creationism will choose to spend their vacations at his park rather than at Disney World or the Smithsonian Institution–and from there become persuaded of his fringe religious beliefs. Shall we see together how likely that pipe dream is to become reality? [Read more…]

Christian Opportunism in Action.
