Warren Throckmorton reports that Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis is going to headline an event for the Institute on the Constitution, founded by Christian Reconstructionist and white supremacist Michael Peroutka. Peroutka was the one who donated a dinosaur skeleton to Ham’s Creation Museum, which they absurdly claim proves creationism.
Now Ham is going to headline an event with Peroutka and David Whitney and put on by Peroutka’s Institute on the Constitution.
Peroutka is a member and former board member of the League of the South; Whitney is the chaplain of the Virginia/MD chapter of the League. The League of the South advocates for the Southern states to secede to form a homeland whites of European heritage. Peroutka has pledged the resources of the IOTC to the work of the League, and Peroutka defended the League as a Christian group.
And he quotes David Whitney, Peroutka’s right hand man, saying that only Christians should be citizens:
Loving thy neighbor means protecting their God given rights as Exodus 12:49 commands. That means preserving the structure of civil government from all who would pervert the civil government into an agency of legalized plunder, whereby the God given rights of no one would be safe and secure. This means, as we have seen in the commands of Scripture, that we restrict citizenship to those who, because they are committed to the Covenant of Disciples of Jesus Christ, are willing to submit themselves to serve in the roles of responsibility in choosing leaders who will preserve God ordained order. Those who will serve as Jurors, committed to do justice in judging the law by the eternal standard of God’s Law. Those who will serve when called up as Representatives to serve in civil government to do justice by God’s Law, and those who will put themselves in harms way serving in the Militia – only in just wars as defined by God’s Law.
These are very, very scary people.
