Pellston Board of Education prayer issue

FANM Members:


Below is part of an email I received last evening from Annie Laurie Gaylor, Co-President of the Freedom from Religion Foundation. She is responding to my inquiry regarding what's next in the Pellston prayer issue. After you read the email I'd ask that you consider if a unified visit to the next Pellston School Board meeting, Monday November 14th, is something that you would feel comfortable taking part in. If we as a group agree to do this and present a united front I will volunteer to be the one who actually speaks to the board and asks them to stop the practice.


I am very anxious to hear from each of you.





Kristen is only in barely 8 hours a week if that - she's a fall intern with limited hours. I've asked her to talk to me about this. We are atheists around here & we don't believe in miracles :) It's great to have a complainant who can monitor these violations. i have suggested a follow-up phone call, a news release & an action alert. We just got back from our national convention (you're chapter is in, by the way & everyone was very pleased) and can try to do some catch-up.  The 6th circuit is on our side & we will get them to stop, eventually. You should fill me in (since I'm after hours & kristen's here so briefly every week) about whether you and the chapter have taken any action. If not, that would really help. Go and speak at the school board meeting against it, etc. maybe you've done this - but if not, it would be helpful. We could let area members know if there was to be a contingent of you - i would suggest phoning me well in advance of a planned 'attack' like this so we have time to get the word out. Thanks and i know Kristen will be in touch. Our senior staff attorney who is due to give birth monday phoned after her doc's appt this aft.  to say they're inducing her tomorrow for health reasons. She'll be gone 2 months and was out a lot previously on bedrest. We think we're trundling along pretty well but it's been a difficult year! Annie Laurie
