Pastors flood the state with op-eds in wake of advisory board comments

1In the wake of the comments of Lt. Governor Dan Patrick’s hand-picked advisory committee that putting children into public school Pre-K programs is putting them into a “Godless environment”, Pastors from across the state are sounding off and demanding an apology for the offense.  The articles are being tweeted, re-tweeted, posted and re-posted to the point where they are reaching millions of people.  We have compiled several of the articles here:
