American Atheists Jump on FFRF’s Anti-Christian Bandwagon

"Earlier this week, the FFRF threatened public schools in an effort to bully them not to send public school classes to visit our two Christian facilities. Following suit, the American Atheists, another anti-Christian activist organization, has sent threatening letters to two parks and recreation departments 'demanding that they cease promoting upcoming trips to Answers in Genesis’ Creation Museum and Ark Encounter.'” - AiG
