Meet Dr. Kenneth Poppe

He wrote a book with a picture of funny-looking DNA on the cover.

He describes, in his church newsletter, how he surreptitiously slips religion to his science students at a public school.

Someone using his name got their belligerent on in the comments section of a Pharyngula post. (No, I don’t think it was him, but it was such a cute little spoof of “Culture Warrior” posturing I thought I’d let you enjoy it too.  There are more farther down in the comment thread, as well.)

He was interviewed by Dr. James Kennedy of Coral Ridge Ministries.  Yes, THAT Dr. James Kennedy.  The one who advocates Dominionist ideas.

The Dr. James Kennedy who once said:

 "The Christian community has a golden opportunity to train an army of dedicated teachers who can invade the public school classrooms and use them to influence the nation for Christ."

He is NOT the same Ken Poppe that co-chaired the Task Force for the Episcopal Church that recommended that the EC continue to bless same-sex civil unions. (In case you were wondering)
