You’re right but teaching Creationists that their religion is wrong is also unconstitutional. The First Amendment doesn’t qualify religious freedom on the correctness or provability of the religion. The whole thing is radioactive and must be avoided in a public school. If public schools do weigh in on the subject it’s not likely to go the direction this group wants because even in the Democrat party only 17% believe in evolution in which “God had no part” (Gallup)

Creationism isn’t in or of itself a religion (there are many different creation stories in many different religions), and empirical science is not subject to a popularity contest voted upon by the pubilc at large (it ain’t American Idol). People don’t get to insist upon either lies or nothing because truths offend them.
