"God" forbid someone has something good and moral to teach young children! What is wrong with today's society?! What did "God" ever do to you people who are sooooo against HIM?! I have to often wonder who's name will be spoken when you're in a life or death situation?

The problem isn't that we're against God, it's the problem that a vocal minority, in this case one person, threatened a lawsuit based on the concept of separation of church and state. He felt that we were promoting religious programs and allowing this group to have a stage for missionary work. Although their message is to promote good choices in life, it goes back to the objection of the christian background of the members of the group. I personally think that if the administrators of the district felt that this group had a good message to give and that they don't promote any particular religion, it should be allowed to go on. And if parents object, they should let school officials know, so arrangments can be made to accomodate them.
Is that so

PEHS principal Bruce Gunderson is a flake...he'll use double standards EVERY time. Claims to promote morality, but puts the kabash on beneficial programs like this. Maybe then he'd have to conjure up some morals for himself.
