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.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
