Here’s another situation where a school allowed local ministers to go into the cafeteria at lunchtime to talk to kids. They act as lunchroom monitors, but several parents have complained to the school that the ministers are talking to the kids about religion.
The Bainbridge Island School District has launched an investigation into whether or not three local youth pastors who volunteered as cafeteria supervisors at Woodward Middle School proselytized or tried to recruit students at school.
The men have been asked not to volunteer at the school while the district investigates.
“I think it’s a very dicey situation, I think they have to be really careful what they say,” said Leslie Krantz, whose eighth-grade son attends Woodward.
Bainbridge Island Public Schools said parents brought the complaints to a district administrator last week.
The ministers, of course, say they would never proselytize in such a situation and they’re completely innocent. I guess the investigation will tell. We had a similar situation here in Michigan and it’s happened in many other places as well. Imagine the outcry if a Muslim or an atheist volunteered for such a position.
