A recent article reports: “The ACLU Foundation of Kansas & Western Missouri wrote Friday to Mark Crawford, superintendent of Hugoton Unified School District 210, asking him to cancel events scheduled for next week with the Oklahoma-based Creation Truth Foundation. ‘It’s been clear for at least the last 45 years that teaching creationism or promoting it is a violation of the Constitution,’ legal director Doug Bonney told The Topeka Capital-Journal. ‘When you invite a religious organization that is completely dedicated to the teaching of biblical creationism, that’s a violation of the First Amendment establishment clause.’”
First, the ACLU is great at making up stats like “It’s been clear for at least 45 years that teaching creationism…is a violation of the Constitution.” Not at all. Nice try though. Second, why is this such a problem? If it is acceptable to viewpoint groups – Planned Parenthood (abortion), Atheist, Evolutionist – speak to students, why can’t creationists? Doesn’t this qualify as viewpoint discrimination? If it’s government mandated for science classes to teach evolution, which is just an unprovable theory – why can’t they teach creationism? It’s no less a valid theory to be taught. Out society’s illogical hypocrisy grows. Click here for original article.
