Ken Ham, the creationist behind Ark Encounter, took to Twitter to warn children about libraries for carrying LGBTQ-friendly books. He tweeted a link to a right-wing article criticizing the presence of these books in libraries, stating that “the enemy” is trying to infiltrate kids’ hearts and minds.
Ham wrote, “Increasingly (sadly) so, but public libraries are becoming dangerous places for kids (of all ages). And sadly, the majority of kids from church homes have already had their hearts & minds captured by the enemy through public schools, TV etc.”
Ham opened the Ark Encounter, a huge replica of Noah’s ark from the Bible, in Williamstown, Kentucky in July 2016. He is also responsible for the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY, which promotes a creationist message to its guests.
