· Cat introduced all of the officers
· We then engaged in an icebreaker game
· After the icebreaker, Cat brought up the case of MI-issued stickers in bio books that claim evolution is nothing than a theory. Although it is readily obvious evolution is a theory (a well-supported one), the aim of the sticker fiasco is to trivialize the authority of the theory of evolution.
· Should Barack Obama endorse the Boy Scouts and become honorary President of the club?
o What is the deal with the Boy Scouts?
o One needs to be religiously affiliated in order to join, but does not necessarily need to have Christian faith
o Why shouldn’t Barack Obama endorse them?
§ Some consensus from the club: Boy Scouts are a government-funded organization, and one of their goals is to promote religion. Furthermore, the Boy Scouts do not allow homosexuals into the club. This seems like a clear case of the violation between the church and state, not to mention a case of discrimination.
o Is this something we should even care about? Are there more important issues we should be concerned with, both politically and religiously?
