On Nov. 30, a fundamentalist Christian evangelist with a group called the Todd Becker Foundation appeared in a public school in Caledonia, Minn.
What happened there is a familiar story: The school thought it was getting a lecture on issues that can affect teens, such as alcohol abuse. What it got instead was a sermon.
To his credit, Superintendent Ben Barton admitted that things were not handled well. “We should’ve done a better job in vetting the speaker,” he told the local newspaper.
