You gotta give credit to Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. He knows where the opportunities are.
First, he located in Kentucky, where his creationism has been well received. Now he’s identified another fertile market. His new post is titled Respuestas en Génesis Is Expanding into Latin America. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
There is such a hunger for creation-apologetics teaching in churches around the world. It doesn’t matter where we go, people want answers to questions such as “Where did Cain get his wife?” “Does the Bible explain dinosaurs?” “What about evolution and millions of years?” “How can you believe in a loving God with all the death and suffering we see around us?” And because we’ve found that countries in Latin America are especially hungry and eager to get answers, we’re expanding and establishing a base in Mexico.
Isn’t this exciting? Then he says:
Latin America has nearly twice the population of North America at 600 million people — there’s a tremendous opportunity to share the truth with Spanish-speaking people living in 19 countries and territories.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] Hambo will save them from Darwin and bring them The Truth™. After that he tells us:
[W]e’re thrilled to announce Answers in Genesis–Mexico (or Respuestas en Génesis México). This new outreach will give us a headquarters in Latin America, allowing us to do local printing of Spanish resources and to help build relationships with the largest book distributors in Latin America, getting these truly biblical creation-apologetics resources into the hands of as many people as possible.
Wowie — that really is thrilling! Hambo continues:
Obviously, all of this outreach is virtually impossible to coordinate and implement effectively from an office in Northern Kentucky. So Joe Owen, who heads up our Spanish-language outreaches at AiG, is moving his family of six children to Mexico to open a brand-new Latin American office.
Mexico should have agreed with Trump about a wall at the border. Now it’s too late — the creationists are coming! One last excerpt:
We are so excited about this new opportunity and are praying that God will bless it and use the outreaches mightily to equip his church to stand on the authority of God’s Word from the very beginning and boldly proclaim the gospel. The opportunities in Latin America seem almost endless!
Who knows, maybe Hambo will have so much success down there he’ll move his whole operation south of the border. Oh, wait — the ark is immobile. He’s stuck in Kentucky.
