Red shift comes from light aging, not expansion of the universe (Talk.Origins)
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
- The red shift from distant galaxies has been interpreted as a Doppler effect from the universe expanding. However, it may instead be due to "tired light." Photons age and shift to the red after a very very long time.

This is not a creationists claim. It was developed as a last ditch effort to save the steady state evolutionary cosmology. Some creationists have picked up on the idea as an argument against the Big Bang but it has never been a common creationist idea.
