‘Such is the case with a most curious pair of lawsuits that are being filed by various Christian groups in Kansas’.

‘The groups have filed two lawsuits against the state Board of Education in Kansas, which recently decided to implement a set of science standards in all public schools across the state’.

‘The groups are angry because they feel that their beliefs should be given some consideration in science classes’.

‘One group, the Pacific Justice Institute, says that the teaching of science in all schools would “create a hostile learning environment for those of faith.”

‘The second group, Citizens for Objective Public Education (COPE, Inc.), filed its lawsuit on Sept. 26th, accused that the state’s new standards “will have the effect of causing Kansas public schools to establish and endorse a non-theistic religious worldview” in violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendments’.

‘Perhaps the most laughable part of all of this is what Pacific Justice Institute’s Brad Dachus said’.

‘He actually believes that it is a violation of a child’s rights to teach that creationism isn’t true’.

‘Dachus said’:

“(I)t’s an egregious violation of the rights of Americans to subject students — as young as five — to an authoritative figure such as a teacher who essentially tells them that their faith is wrong”.

‘Nobody teaches that anyone’s faith is wrong, Mr. Dachus’.

‘They simply teach scientific fact, something you obviously know nothing about’.

‘Further, if you want your beliefs given credence in science classrooms, that means Islam, Paganism, and all the rest have to be given equal credence’.

‘If you wish to use the Constitution in this battle, remember that it applies to everyone’s faiths, not just yours’.
