Christianity seeps into the South's public schools on several levels. A former football coach, Rick Gage, leads the Duluth, Ga.-based GO TELL Ministries under whose auspices he presents anti-drug or anti-sex speeches in schools that have underlying Christian messages. Its website states: "The purpose of GO TELL Ministries is to reach as many people as possible for God's Kingdom."
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes has clubs in just about every high school in the area.
As long as the religious clubs are run by the students themselves, there is generally no legal issue. But it's not always clear cut. As [Georgia ACLU Director Debbie] Seagraves points out, "Everywhere you go in this state, you will find problems that border on being unconstitutional."
