It’s Time To Slam The Door On Public School Evangelists

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.

Anti-Gay Christian Group Speaks At Iowa Public School Assemblies

An anti-gay fundamentalist Christian group successfully infiltrated an Iowa public high school assembly a few months ago – a move that angered some parents.

Last spring, the Todd Becker Foundation (TBF) gave a presentation during the school day to Logan-Magnolia Junior/Senior High School in Logan about the dangers of drinking and driving. That lecture cost the school $1,500, money that school Superintendent Tom Ridder felt was well spent.
