Angry atheists bluffing schools, says Ham

dinosaur exhibit Creation MuseumAn atheist group is threatening several schools that they must cancel trips planned to Answers in Genesis’ Creation Museum in Kentucky. 

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has written to three public high schools telling them that it's unconstitutional to take students to a religious venue.

Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis and the museum's creator says it's not unconstitutional and that the trips are made voluntarily and free of charge.

"It's actually not illegal that public schools want to bring their students to a place like the Creation Museum,” he tells OneNewsNow. “I mean, it's a well-established fact in the court that the Bible can be discussed in the public school classroom as long as it's discussed, they would say, objectively."

He says this is just another example of how FFRF tries to intimidate schools with the threat of a lawsuit.

"They're so bullied by people like the Freedom From Religion Foundation and other secular groups that threaten to take them to court if they allow their students to have anything to do with Christianity,” he says. “And, of course, most schools don't have the money to fight that."

Jackson City School in Kentucky and Brookville High School in Ohio have already visited the venue, and Big Beaver Falls High School in Pennsylvania made plans to attend this month.
