Americans United Warns Washington County Council Not To Give Tax Aid To Christian Fundamentalist Group

November 18, 2013

Those of us in Minnesota are familiar with the Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF), the group behind the “Good News Club” that is quite active here in the state: they held their most recent conference here.

An item in a Washington county council’s proposed budget that would give taxpayer funding to a fundamentalist Christian organization that works to convert young children must not be approved, says Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

The Pierce County Council intends the grant to help Child Evangelism Fellowship rent space at local fairs. This is doubly problematic, as this is not just a government entity using taxpayer money to help a religious organization: to make the issue far worse, the recipient group will use the money to increase their presence in public fairs in order to promote their strictly religious mission.

AU wants to hear about the activities of the CEF and their “Good News Clubs”: if you have heard of them in your public schools and are aware of their activities, send us an email at info@mnau.org.
