News from Agape Press

Well, I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time. Here I am criticizing the Catholic church for stepping away from evolution, and at the same time creationists are criticizing the church for daring to suggest that God might have needed a little longer than six days to make the universe. Here's Ken Ham, who the Agape Press identifies as a creation scientist:

"If you're going to believe in evolution," Ham asserts, "and say that God took an ape man and made a soul to make Adam, and God took an ape woman and made a soul to make Eve, then the woman came from an ape woman. She didn't come from Adam. And if the woman didn't come from Adam's side, then you've got a major problem....You've just destroyed the whole basis of marriage, the whole basis of oneness in marriage and even Christ's relationship to the Church, which is based upon the doctrine of marriage -- the church being the bride of Christ."

Looking at the Agape site, I'm actually not sure if it's a spoof. I hope it is; I think it isn't.
