The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), an atheist activist group, has demanded that Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy stop sharing Bible verses on his official social media accounts, with Cassidy delivering a quick and pointed response: "Their request is denied."

The FFRF posted a statement in August targeting Cassidy, a Republican, and his use of social media to share scripture, with the group asking that he "cease sermonizing" on his accounts. The complaint was waged after a "concerned Louisiana resident" contacted the FFRF to report Cassidy's sharing of verses.

Cassidy vs FFRF

"The First Amendment prohibits government sponsorship of religious messages,” FFRF co-presidents Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor, wrote in a letter to the senator. “The Supreme Court has long held that the Establishment Clause ‘mandates government neutrality between religion and religion, and between religion and nonreligion.’ Your office violates this constitutional mandate when it proselytizes the Christian faith to all constituents, such as directing them to ‘Trust in the LORD.’”

The FFRF wants these posts removed, with Gaylor proclaiming that Cassidy is "imposing his biblical message on a society that’s becoming increasingly diverse."

But it seems Cassidy isn't interested in halting his scripture-sharing, with the politician taking to his Twitter account to respond to the FFRF's demands.

"The Freedom From Religion Foundation has demanded that I stop sharing Bible verses with you," he said. "The left won’t bully me into canceling Christianity. Their request is denied."

The FFRF hit back this week, calling Cassidy's response "unconstitutionally stubborn" and implored him to "cool it on all the religion." Despite claiming that the senator is in violation of the constitution, the FFRF didn't offer any intended steps forward to further address the grievance.
