Homeschoolers ≠ Creationists

Ken Ham, the group’s chief exec­u­tive, said mar­ket­ing sur­veys sug­gest­ed that the com­plex would draw not just home-school­ing fam­i­lies and oth­er cre­ation­ists, but main­stream church groups and curios­i­ty seekers.

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.
