Hi Kendal/Group . . .

I couldn't find Rachel's article online, so I typed it up verbatim from the News-Review (attached).

What troubles me the most, after reading the article, is that there doesn't seem to be too much concern about the issue of a religious group proselytizing in a public school. It's almost as if they're (school board/teachers/parents) encouraging it. Could it be that the distant war drums of FFRF are finally making people realize that separation of church and state is not only a mandate for larger metropolitan areas, but the smaller communities as well? Perhaps they're (the school board) just playing it safe, to see what happens. If there isn't much opposition, they may quietly continue to allow the group in the schools.

Religious organizations have NO business in public schools PERIOD. I never knew Young Life existed, and I can't believe they are allowed on school grounds during lunch hour. I really would like to find out a little bit more about what they do, and what their role is as "mentors" in schools.

Chris

There is an article on the front of tonight's Petoskey News Review that is worth reading. It's about what's going on with allowing christian groups to set up shop on school grounds during the lunch hour.
