I (Kent Hovind) got to speak today in Monroeville to the Kiwanis Club.
A good bunch of folks there.
They had not heard much about us, so I got to explain what we are doing out here.
I think a lot of folks are excited and on board; so praise God for that.
That seemed a little odd to me, and after checking the Kiwanis webpage it seems even more odd; given the Kiwanis stated standards.
The six permanent Objects of Kiwanis International were approved by Kiwanis club delegates at the 1924 Kiwanis International Convention in Denver, Colorado. Through the decades, they have remained unchanged.
- To give primacy to the human and spiritual rather than to the material values of life.
- To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
- To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business and professional standards.
- To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship.
- To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service and to build better communities.
- To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and goodwill.
Now, don’t you agree that there is something amiss with the Kiwanis organization entertaining, approvingly, Kent Hovind’s performance!
I asked the Monroeville, AL Kiwanis, via their FaceBook page, to provide feedback on this article about Kent’s performance for them. They often post threads regarding speakers, but did not post a thread about Kent’s appearance. FaceBook advises me that someone from the Kiwanis did see my request.
