Proselytizing is wrong in a secular environment | LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor:
I just read the article about the middle school volunteers promoting their religious views.
A few years ago, we had custody of our granddaughters and something like this happened to one of them at the library. There was a young man that spent a great deal of time there proselytizing. He converted a number of kids to his church, it was quite a movement for a time.
I found it quite disturbing at the time, but there was a lot of peer pressure for her to conform. I don’t know if this continues because our girls have grown up and moved away. My point is, in a secular environment, this is inappropriate. Some of the Bainbridge teens hanging out at the library, have few other wholesome places to go.
