Good News Club

From the description of the video (below).
“In 2001, a conservative Supreme Court overthrew a New York public school‘s policy of excluding adult-led religious proselytizing groups like The Good News Club from operating in its schools, turning the Establishment Clause on its head. Since then the Good News Clubs have been on a tear, and now can be found in well over 3000 public elementary schools across America.”

“The Clubs, which are sponsored by an organization called the Child Evangelism Fellowship, are designed to indoctrinate very young children in a very specific and deeply fundamentalist version of the Christian faith — one that endorses Biblical “inerrancy” and creationism, and emphasizes obedience at all costs. By operating in public schools, the Clubs deceive small children into thinking that their school supports this particular form of the Christian religion. Kids who attend the Clubs have said that the religion of the Good News Club “must be true, because they teach it in school, and they don’t teach things in school that aren’t true.”

And people wonder why USA is digging its way deeper and deeper into the faith-pit.
Why American science is nowhere near the top 20 of the worlds countries.
