Can't Tell a Lie?
Something called Vision Forum Ministries, whose big issue seems to be "Biblical Patriarchy," has awarded its "2007 George Washington Man of the Year" award to ... wait for it ... Ken Ham!
Ken Ham is the esteemed 2007 recipient of the George Washington Man of the Year Award because we believe him to be an individual whose vision and persevering spirit are noteworthy for giving hope to the next generation and defending the cause of Christ in our nation. Specifically, Ken's uncompromising defense of Genesis, and his long battle to open the Creation Museum, is one of the most singular contributions of our generation," observed [Vision Forum president Doug] Phillips.According to the flacks ... er ... press release:
Each year, Vision Forum gives the George Washington Man of the Year Award to recognize and honor that man who most clearly demonstrates, through their public courage, the stalwart spirit and mature leadership embodied by General George Washington.Given that Washington felt so strongly about good education that he left money in his will for establishing both a school in Alexandria, Virginia, and for a national university, I'm pretty sure that whirring sound you hear is coming from the family vault at Mount Vernon.
