Baptizing Public Schools
A very interesting development:
The Baptist Center for Ethics, consisting of dozens of pastors, including some from the conservative Southern Baptist Convention, have signed a letter asking fellow ministers to reject the movement by conservatives to abandon public schools.
According to the Center, Baptists should "recommit themselves to the separation of church and state."
And, what is more, public schools should be free from attempts to promote "sectarian faith," such as state-written school prayers or the teaching of intelligent design.
