Ken Ham climbs into bed with white supremacist group

Ken Ham climbs into bed with white supremacist group September 19, 2014


Is Ken Ham in bed with white supremacists?

According to a blog posted on Americans United’s blog, he seems to be:

We don’t know how Ken Ham feels about white supremacists, but he clearly has no problem partnering with one. If the company you keep says a lot about you, what does Ham’s relationship with Michael Peroutka say about him?

Michael Peroutka is the founder of the Institute of the Constitution, a Christian nationalist group that supports white supremacists, and Peroutka is a current member of The League of the South, who according to Americans United:

The League is a radical outfit that seeks to preserve the “Anglo-Celtic culture” of the South. The League, which can’t seem to accept that the Civil War ended in 1865, is actually working toward secession (because that worked out so well last time). It has even been labeled a racist hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

This isn’t the first time Ham has gone to bed with Peroutka though, as Peroutka donated an Allosaurus skeleton for Ham’s Creation Museum.

Why is Ham so eager to work with known racist groups? Ham has already shown he has zero intellectual integrity and seems more than willing to lie about ripping off taxpayers, but now he is showing that he lacks any moral integrity as well because anyone with a moral compass would not do business with such a hateful group.
