End of Days! Now Showing at the Yankton Middle School!

Got an interesting brochure in my mailbox this morning:

Revelation 1Normally, I just toss this kind of stuff, but I had to look through and see what kind of end-of-days goodness they’re going to cover–a plentiful amount, it seems.

revelation 2But wait! There’s more!

revelation 3But the best part of all is where it’s being held–the Yankton MIDDLE SCHOOL.  Excuse me, but why is a public, taxpayer-funded, supposedly separation of church-and-state adhering building being used to host a seminar for a bunch of people who are actually EXCITED for the WORLD TO END?

revelation 4They even have a “Kids for Jesus” program free for those ages 0-8–you know, because it might be a little scary for young children to see their parents excited for their young lives to be cut short in order for the whole family to “Meet Their Maker!”

Let me make clear my position on this apocalyptic crap: People who want the world to end are DANGEROUS.

I don’t see how extremists who think it’s OK to blow themselves up, kill “non-believers,” and become martyrs are that far from people who hold seminars about the joys and excitement the end of the world (Coming Soon!) and how great it’ll be when all those groups they supposedly “love in the Lord” get their due (that is, Burning in Hell!).

Protest anyone?  Calling the Yankton school board, anyone? I know our schools are hard-up for cash, but this is a completely unacceptable use of a public building by a bunch of religious extremists, and it needs to be stopped, now.

The number for the Yankton Superintendent of Schools Office is (605) 665 3998.

UPDATE! I just called the number above, and the parent organization, “Amazing Facts,” did NOT make clear to the school district’s business office what their program plans were.  The folks at the district office were VERY helpful and pleasant, and they were also quite surprised to find out what was appearing in local mailboxes.

Remember if you call to be polite! These are friends and neighbors we’re dealing with!

  1. I got a flyer for what looks like the same event in SF last year. As a Yankton native, I’ll definitely be making a phone call. Thanks for the post!

    I’ll check tomorrow to see if they’ve managed to cancel the thing. From what I gathered, the organization, “Amazing Facts,” misled them (or didn’t tell them) about the nature of the program.

    Sheesh. And, of course, the use of the school building, even if it’s not on school time, gives them a credibility they don’t deserve.
