Creationist Ken Ham waters down his museum’s hiring rules — which include chastity vows — to attract workers

Published

on

Creationist Ken Ham seems to be having trouble attracting part-time help to work at his Ark Encounter museum — and now he’s watering down his strict hiring guidelines in the hope of attracting more workers.

Patheos reports that Ham announced in a recent Facebook Live video that he is easing off on some of the requirements he’s put in place as a precondition to work at his museums.

“We are a Christian organization, and as a Christian organization, we employ people who are Christians,” Ham says in the video. “We actually, for the seasonals, we actually have a more abridged Statement of Faith, the fundamentals of Christianity, not our detailed one for all of our full-time managers and others. So for seasonals… if they can sign the tenets of the fundamentals of the Christian faith, they can… work here.”

Ham does not go into what the “abridged” statement entails, although the full version of the statement requires employees to state that they believe in young-Earth creationism, while also disavowing homosexuality, premarital sex, and pornography.

According to an earlier Patheos report, Ham has had trouble filling multiple positions at the Ark Encounter, including full-time, part-time and seasonal employees.

Former acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told a Fox News audience that it is not a crime for President Donald Trump to abuse the power of his office.

Whitaker made the comments while complaining about "global elitists" during an interview with Laura Ingraham.

Joe Biden apologizes for ‘partisan lynching’ comments about Bill Clinton’s impeachment

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday apologized for comments he made saying impeachment could be viewed as a "partisan lynching."

The comments from a 1998 interview were reported after Biden said it was "abhorrent" and "despicable" for President Donald Trump to refer to impeachment as a lynching.

"Even if the President should be impeached, history is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching or whether or not it was something that in fact met the standard, the very high bar, that was set by the founders as to what constituted an impeachable offense," Biden said in 1998.
