Atheists Talk: Katherine Stewart on “The Good News Club”

Katherine Stewart is an investigative journalist and a parent. When the Good News Club came to her children’s public elementary school in 2009, Katherine put her skills to use in order to learn more about the club. She found that the club wasn’t only an after-school Bible study, but rather a program designed to indoctrinate children with Christian fundamentalism.

Katherine dug deeper and spent time exploring the efforts of Christian fundamentalist groups across the United States that use public schools as a venue to teach radical religious ideology to children.

The Good News Club: The Christian Right’s Stealth Assault on America’s Children is the result of Katherine Stewart’s research. It is a in-depth, eye-opening journey through various campaigns that are being launched against public school education, all in an effort to introduce Christian doctrine into society and weaken the wall of church-state separation.

Join Atheists Talk this Sunday as we interview Katherine Stewart about her research. We’ll discuss with her about how we as a society have allowed groups like The Good News Club to get so far so fast, and what we can do in response.

    I read this book for the Skepchick Book Club in May. It’s terrifying, but so informative. I highly recommend it.

    When searching for Atheists Talk in iTunes, the old podcast shows up, but it seems you cannot subscribe to the current one. But I just did so, very easily.
    To do it, go into the iTunes Advanced menu, and the second item is “Subscribe to Podcast…”
    There, it asks for the url of the podcast feed you want.
    The one we are discussing is
    feeds.mnatheists.org/AtheistsTalkRadioShow
    although it starts with that http stuff.

    I got it to work by putting in

    http://feeds.mnatheists.org/AtheistsTalkRadioShow

    It immediately started successfully downloading last week’s show.
    Best wishes to all.
