Protecting TRUE Religious Freedom

FFRF Maine (the Maine chapter of the national FFRF) that works to protect your religious freedom invites you to a meeting to express your concerns about religion being taught in school. The meeting will be at the Margaret Chase Smith School on Wednesday, May 18 from 6:30 to 8 PM.

In October, 2014, Skowhegan parents publicly expressed their concerns that an outside group was teaching religion to children after school.

Are you concerned religious teachings could;

  • Undermine your parental right to raise your child in your family’s faith traditions?
  • Damage your child’s positive self-image by being taught they are sinners in need of salvation?
  • Subject your child to religious bullying and shame in school by other “saved” schoolmates?
  • Rob your child of a fact based education replaced by an anti­science, anti-open inquiry agenda?

You are invited to learn how you can:

  • Protect your child’s right to a quality education.
  • Promote respect for your child’s inherent dignity.
  • Support your child’s intellectual health.
  • Free your child from religious bullying.

For more information, email Tom Waddell, President, FFRF Maine at or call 207­613­7080.

This is not an activity of the school or the School District. Please do not call the school for further information.
