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.
