Sadly, the leaders of our government have created an environment where anti-Christian groups like Americans United for Separation of Church and State (AU) have been emboldened to intimidate people and religious organizations by lawsuit threats—all meant to restrict religious freedom and impose their atheistic religion on the culture. Groups like AU and the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) have aggressively increased such anti-Christian activities in recent times. It was the AU group that pressured the governor of the state of Kentucky to stop AiG’s Ark project from participating in a tourism tax incentive rebate program. As many of you know, this will be settled in the courts in the near future. I encourage you to read more about this religious liberty lawsuit here.
Recently, the FFRF tried to intimidate a public school just because a known Christian spoke at the school—even though he did not mention anything to do with the Christian faith. See our article on this here.
It seems these days that AU and FFRF spend a lot of their time searching for anything in the US that has to do with people hearing something Christian in the public arena, and then using their lawsuit intimidation threats, try to stop it. Sadly, many give in to their demands because the dollar cost of fighting them is high, or because they don’t understand the law and thus don’t understand the illegal nature of many of their threats.
Well, here is another example of the AU exhibiting intolerance and forcing its atheistic religion on a community in Eastern Montana. Associated Press reported,
Lincoln Elementary students were unable to visit the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum after a Washington, D.C.-based group, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, sent a letter claiming the event was illegal, the Billings Gazette reports.
The letter said that courts have “consistently and unequivocally held that religious views on the origins of life, such as creationism, ‘creation science,’ and ‘intelligent design,’ cannot lawfully be advanced by the public schools as alternatives to the scientific theory of evolution.”
The museum is the second largest dinosaur museum in the state . . . The trip has been held for the past several years. Lincoln Elementary Principal John Larsen said the museum’s perspective was different than what kids are exposed to in school and noted that the tour given to students is an edited “secular” version of the typical tour and does not promote religious ideas. . . . The museum’s founder and director, Otis E. Kline Jr., said the public school tours are modified to focus on material evidence, not religious teaching . . .
Actually, groups like AU and FFRF are so scared students will hear anything different from the teaching of evolution. They know if students were taught how to think correctly about origins, they would realize that molecules-to-man evolution is a belief—a religion in itself. Groups like AU and FFRF know they can’t use observational science to confirm evolution, so they use intimidation instead to try to ensure students don’t even have any opportunity to question evolution.
It’s about time the American public began standing up to these secular thugs and their threats.
