We know that all homeschoolers are fundamentalist Christians, right? I know the Times is just quoting Ham, but I find the quote with no balancing statement to be upsetting (and it isn’t a direct quote, which often means that there was some change by the reporter.)

Yes, I’ve sent off a letter to the editor.

Please —f you do send one too, make sure that it’s calm, rational, and factual. Double-check your grammar and spelling. No, I shouldn’t have to say that, but all of us have allowed passion to override our normal standards at some point.
