Frank Turek is a Christian apologist and anti-atheist. He co-authored the book I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist with Norman Geisler and has a television show with the same name on the Christian cable channel, NRB Network.
Turek hosts an expansive blog called CrossExamined.org, where he peddles evangelical Christian apologetics products and services. The site also provides podcasts, and is the source for a weekly radio show on American Family Radio, the American Family Association's hate radio organ.
Turek is stridently opposed to atheism and atheists. His YouTube channel has videos in which he debates and answers atheists with factually inaccurate and laughably fallacious arguments. Turek also seems to hold the popular Christian belief that morality is objective and that atheists have no morals or "moral compass" to "guide" their ethical decision-making.
Turek is an Old Earth creationist and an intelligent design activist. He even claims to have once traveled to Iran in search of the fabled Noah's Ark. In his list of the "top 20 Christian apologists" he included creationist organizations and people such as the Discovery Institute, Hugh Ross, Lee Strobel, and Ravi Zacharias.
Turek is also quite homophobic and has written articles for Townhall.com, a far-right website in which wingnuts rant about the evils of them
goatdamn goddamn libruls and other assorted anti-'Murican bogeymen. These articles were later republished on Voice of Revolution, Michael Brown's homophobic website.
Turek created CrossedExamed.org, a "non-profit" webshite that peddles evangelical Christian apologetics products and services. According to the site's official mission statement, they exist "to address the problem that 3-out-of-4 Christian youth leave the church while in college, many because they are intellectually skeptical."[note 2] The webshite includes the following masterpieces of Christian apologetics:
