To Mr. Puter: Religious proselytization has no place in museums, which are secular institutions unless clearly designated otherwise, like a museum about the history of Catholicism or Christianity. It was wrong to “surprise” Dinosaur museum patrons by injecting religion into a children’s puppet show, and the museum has acknowledged that.

Kara Taylor’s letter makes it clear that inappropriate religious promotions are commonly and unexpectedly occurring in lots of venues in our area, and she does a service by letting us know that. Secular institutions like schools, governments and museums need to be alerted when such inappropriate proselytizing occurs, and reminded it is unacceptable.

The illegal promotion of Fellowship Church’s youth indoctrination center in a public school, along with promising children more sugary junk foods than their mothers would allow, and luring them with spectacles like vandalizing cars, and a “middle school homework bonfire” are questionable at best, and inappropriate at worst.

Keep things in perspective: Had it been an Islamic, Hindu, B’Hai, Sufi, Rastafarian or Jewish youth indoctrination center that was promoted at Grand Mesa Middle School, howls of protest would have welled up from the community.
