VIDEO: The Good News Club

by The Editors | August 2014

Why is the Good News Club threatening children with hellfire and damnation?

In public schools across the U.S., children are threatened with fire and brimstone while attending the “Good News Club,” an afterschool program sponsored by the Child Evangelism Fellowship. In “‘Get Them When They’re Young!’” (Sojourners, August 2014), Asra Q. Nomani, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, writes about her experience working with a group of interfaith mothers to challenge the Good News Club in their community.

To get an inside look at the Good News Club in action, watch this video featuring their training materials and curriculum.
