The God hating group, Freedom From Religion is at it again trying their hardest to take away any thing related to God or the Bible. A Bible club for 6-7 year old children. What harm could that possibly do?
Seems the big problem was that some first- and second-graders were gathering at their Tennessee elementary school each morning before class to take part in — brace yourself — a Bible club.
At least it was a problem for the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
Because when the atheist group found out the tykes were cracking open the Good Book at Altruria Elementary School in Bartlett, Tennessee, the FFRF fired off a letter to Bartlett City Schools.
The atheist group said there should be an investigation to ensure that teachers and staff are not participating in the Bible club, which FFRF added would be a violation of the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, WMC-TV reported.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation is not shy about going up against schools and even towns over separation of church and state issues — and indeed the school district shut down the Bible club, WATN-TV reported.
Dozens of children attended it, WMC reported.
Bartlett City Schools on Thursday confirmed that the Bible club was being run by district employees. It also told WATN a statement that “per our understanding, religious clubs at elementary schools must be sponsored by an outside group.”
One family isn’t taking the developments lying down and contacted a lawyer from the Center for Religious Expression, WATN said. Seems two children from the family were looking forward to attending the Bible club next school year, WATN reported.
The Godphobic Freedom From Religion Foundation can sue, protest and shut down innocent Bible clubs, or any other God related activity there is, but they cant stop personal relationships people have with God. Furthermore the Altruria Elementary school is working on getting outside groups to run the program for the coming year.
As a side note, we here at Conservative Library checked our handy Constitutions and could find nothing prohibiting any participation by staff or teachers. Perhaps it’s in the Freedom From Common Sense version of the Constitution that FFRF had printed up for themselves?
