"Proselytizing­­ Young Children in Our Public Schools"

Robert Aughenbaugh from the group "Protect Portland Children" will present his concerns about religious organizations that use our public schools to proselytize young children. For example, the Good News Club is sending 175 missionaries to Portland this summer to recruit elementary school children to their extreme beliefs. Prep4Kids, a fundamentalist released-time program, already operates in 30 local elementary and middle schools. Aughenbaugh will also discuss things we can do to combat this growing trend. We will be posting more information about his talk soon.

Note: Dinner/Social at 6:00 and Meeting at 7:00

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend after all.

    As a former high school teacher, I have seen inappropriate religious influence in the schools and think it is essential that we combat it.
    I am looking forward to the presentation.

    Sounds like an interesting program. Unfortunately, I have problems with how warm that room gets; but if it's been a cool, gray day, I'll probably show up.
