I totally agree Adriana. And to add, my concern would be that some teachers couldn't teach the course objectively.

Another informative service. Thanks for the time you spend doing the work for us, Johnny!
I have so many websites bookmarked from your efforts, that I can hear my browser groaning! :)
Happy Sunday everybody!

Quite frankly, I find it interesting that these oh-so-christian groups do not demand that religion be taught in school. Interesting because they like to bitch so much about the lack of prayer in schools and moan about keeping that strange god insertion in the pledge and complain about how the bible isn't read in class enough. So - what could be better than getting religion mandated right into the curriculum? But, therein lies the rub - for I think it is purposeful that they do not insist on religion being taught because if it were studied, then it would come under the kind of scrutiny and analysis that would destroy it (and I think the recent Pew Research poll results bear out my hypothesis quite well) and heavens to Betsy but they can't be having all thoughtful discussion about christian beliefs!

Another aspect on it Garrison... Every time I've ever had the discussion with a Christian who thinks it should be taught in schools, I pose the question: "Which flavor of Christianity should be taught?" The really narrow-minded quickly respond that it should be their flavor; but most pause at that and many don't answer.
