Require the Good News Club to inform parents that the purpose of their after-school program is to convert children to fundamentalist Christianity. Permission slips need to include that so parents can make informed decisions for their children.

FFRF Maine helps parents know what the Good News Club does during their after-school program. Every after-school program we know of accurately lets parents know the program's purpose but the GNC refuses to do so.

The Good News Club tells parents the program is a fun filled child's activity that includes singing songs, playing games, having fun with their friends and learning some Bible stories that promote moral values, character development and respect for authority.

What the Good News Club actually does to teach children about morals is to focus on Old Testament narratives of a retributive God who must punish sin, warns children that they will suffer an eternity in hell if they refuse to believe, and stresses complete obedience as the supreme value. The Good News Club tells children as young as preschoolers that they have dark and sinful hearts, were born that way, and deserve to die and go to hell. 

The Good News Club robs children of the innocence and enjoyment of childhood, replacing them with a negative self-image, preoccupation with sin, fear of hell and aversion to critical thinking. Children should not be made to be ashamed of themselves, be intimidated from critical thinking or inculcated with divisive stereotypes.

We work with schools to ensure the Good News Club accurately represents their program to parents so they can make informed decisions for their children. We are a volunteer organization in our 4th year and have applied to be a 501 (c) (3) non-profit. Funds will be used to print notices the school gives to students that invite parents to attend our informative presentations, pay for small newspaper ads, print small posters we put up around town to advertise our presentation, pay hall rental fees as needed and to bring in speakers and authors who are experts on what the Good News Club actually does.
