On April 28, 2003 The Cincinnati Post reported that "the 10-year-old boy was listening in Sunday school... But David Gordon-Johnson wasn't learning about the Bible -- he was learning how to become a good Pagan... David's Sunday school class is part of Earthspirit, the St. John's Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans in Clifton... The lesson for David and other youngsters in Clare Iverson's class for third- and fourth-graders was about a Pagan goddess, the Queen of May, and the moral was that love conquers all... Sunday on the lawn of the church in Clifton, the children of Earthspirit celebrated the pagan holiday Beltane with their annual Maypole dance."
