Dryden resident attended Christian politics conference

This is a bit old, but it's unusual for me to see a Dryden resident quoted in the Christian Science Monitor, so it seems worth reporting.

Back in March, the Christian Science Monitor ran a report on a 'national conference aimed at "reclaiming America for Christ"', complete with the Ten Commandments monument that had been in the Alabama judicial building until it was removed as an unconstitutional display. Dryden comes into the story with this paragraph:

Gabriel Carpenter, from Dryden, N.Y., works at a local crisis pregnancy center and is a coordinator for the now-required sexual abstinence program in New York public schools. He and his wife, Penelope, say they hope to "learn more about how to share America's Christian heritage with others."

It looks like the conference was held through the Center for Reclaiming America, part of Coral Ridge Ministries.
