PRLog - Oct. 1, 2012 - WILMINGTON, N.C. -- Wilmington public Schools are being used for religious proselytizing. On Thursday October 18th journalist Katherine Stewart will be speaking on how evangelicals are making children their missionaries in public schools. Adults can't proselytize in schools – but kids can. Hence a new scam by fundamentalists to circumvent church-state separation.
If you go to the Every Student Every School website, you'll see that their dozens of promotional videos are first-rate. The music is great, the cameras are professionally handled, the sound bites are short and snappy. There are many Wilmington schools involved already.
As ESES's name implies, their idea is to proselytize every student in every public school in America through an aggressive "Adopt-a-School" campaign.  And the way to do it is to have the kids do what grownups are not allowed to do – establish full-fledged missionary operations inside the schools.
