In a letter to the editor from the Lexington Herald Leader, this little bit of inaccuracy appeared. I'm not going to quote the whole letter, you can read it for yourself. But the writer got a few things in error. He said that at little kennie ham's ark park public school students will be "presented with a theory". Talk about incorrect! Creationism, either the wider Christian version or the narrow Fundamentalist Evangelical Ham version is not a scientific theory and trying to equate it to actual science theories is creating an equality that is completely artificial and misleading. I have to wonder if the letter writer even knows that in saying something like that, he's actually lying?
Of course kennie is trying to pass off his ministry as an educational, recreational, or historical attraction, but that's just a recent turn of events ever since he found out some people have an actual understanding of the Bill of Rights and a public school funding a school trip to one of his ministries is a clear violation. His pseudo-museum and ark park are ministries, something he has stated repeatedly and the purpose of those ministries, in his own words is
- Our work at Ark Encounter is not just a job, it is also a ministry.
- Our purpose . . . to serve and glorify the Lord with our God-given talents with the goal of edifying believers and evangelizing the lost."
- "Yes, our motive is to do the King’s business until He comes. And that means preaching the gospel and defending the faith, . . ."
