You Can Run But You Cannot Hide is the name of a punk rock anti drug group who organizes strong anti-drug motivational programs in high schools. Many school administrators have taken a great deal of heat from parents and the higher ups because this group is not quite honest about who they are. They are also not very transparent about their evangelical nature. Once they get into a school program some things have gone down that are not supposed to be happening with a captive audience.
According to the Minnesota Independent News:
“They talked about influencing and brainwashing people. Be wise to the fact that is what they were doing. They were using the same tactics,” Neis told the students at the assembly. Neis said he contacted other schools in the area and found that they had no idea that YCRBYCH was a Christian ministry.
In 2005, at a Eureka Springs, Ark., high school, students walked out of the assembly; afterward, the principal took heat from parents. According to the local paper, The Lovely Citizen, Eureka Springs superintendent Reck Wallis, said, “I take responsibility. We had no idea about their religious, right-wing message. They misrepresented their program. We want [Eureka Springs schools] to be open and all inclusive. … They won’t be back.”
At Pequot Lakes High School in central Minnesota in 2007, the group stirred controversy when students reportedly ran out of the assembly crying after the group showed graphic images of abortion and told the students that God wanted women to be subservient to men. John McDonald, Pequot Lakes High School Principal, told WCCO, “We were expecting something a bit different,” he said. “The thing we apologized to students for is the program wasn’t to the expectation that we thought it would be.”
This entire business sounds deceptive and it should not be going on in schools as it involves a captive audience and smacks of indoctrination. Michelle Bachmann should know better! She should know the laws of this country and follow them if she is going to remain in the House of Representatives. She would be the very first person to be stridently shrieking “Rule of Law!”
