Good News ClubsAnother attempt to shut down a Child Evangelism Fellowship club, this time at a Washington state school, has been thwarted once again. 

An angry parent in the Cascade School District complained CEF was using the school to promote religion despite the disclaimer the club is privately sponsored.

Matt Staver of Liberty Counsel says it's important to push back.

"If we didn't push back what would happen?" he asks. "One person would have a veto power over all of these young boys and girls learning the gospel of Jesus Christ, learning good character and moral development skills. All of that would be lost."

Child Evangelism Fellowship, headquartered in Missouri, began in 1937 and ministers to children worldwide primarily through its Good News Clubs. 

Liberty Counsel, which has defended CEF clubs around the nation, says in every legal fight the arguments against these after-school clubs do not hold up.

"All of these acts, whether it's complete access denial or it's some kind of restriction on what you can do that's different than what similarly situated organizations can do, they're unconstitutional," he tells OneNewsNow. "We've won every single one of these challenges."

There are more than 43,000 CEF clubs located in every state of the union as well as more than 183 countries.
