An Arkansas public school district has banned youth pastors and other religious from visiting during school hours after a Wisconsin group fined a complaint and called the practice “predatory.”
“We’ve temporary suspended allowing these youth pastors and other faith based leaders to come in during the lunch hour and we are reviewing policy and the law,” Conway Public School Supt. Greg Murry told Fox News.
The practice of allowing youth ministers to visit students during the lunch hour has been a longtime tradition in many Southern states.
Murry, who became superintendent six years ago, said the practice had been in place long before he arrived.
