Disinvited - UPDATED

AiG has been disinvited to two upcoming homeschool conventions where AiG President Ken Ham had been scheduled to speak, including the one in Cincinnati - their own "backyard."

"Kicked Out of Two Homeschool Conferences"

Here is an excerpt from the letter informing AiG of the board's decision:
Our expression of sacrifice and extraordinary kindness towards Ken and AIG has been returned to us and our attendees with Ken publicly attacking our conventions and other speakers. Our Board believes Ken's comments to be unnecessary, ungodly, and mean-spirited statements that are divisive at best and defamatory at worst.
I take no pleasure in this sad situation. Please pray for everyone involved, that there will be repentance and reconciliation for the sake of unity in the Body of Christ.

UPDATE (3/25/11): Christianity Today has now posted an article about this situation.

"Creation Museum Founder Disinvited from Homeschooling Conferences"

It's hard for me to tell if Ken Ham and AiG understands that the problem is one of orthopraxy, not orthodoxy.
