New Video: "Sophia Investigates the Good News Club"

hat tip: The Thinking Atheist podcast. He interviews Katherine Stewart, who wrote The Good News Club: The Christian Right's Stealth Assault on America's Children.  She also has a blog.  The Good News Club (not a club, really fundamentalist education with a five-year curriculum aimed at elementary children in public schools, even kindergartners) came to her hometown of Santa Barbara, California.  They're probably in your town too, or they want to be.  They're in 3500 schools nationwide.

She's not the only one drawing attention to this menace.  Check out "Good News Club: A Critique."

Thanx for the headups on this video.
I have tried to fight a church in our elementary school, but now one meets there every Sunday. If someone tried to open a Mosque there, everyone's eyes in the community would open quickly.

If they're meeting on Sunday I hope they're paying rent. Some schools rent out their space for activities outside of the school day.

Oh yeah, they pay rent, that is why it happened (on the surface.)

Nothing new here but it doesn't make it any less disgusting. That the church would stoop so low as to exploit our children for the purpose of proselytizing.
