People cannot force one to live under a religion they don't want to though.

True enough. Free will is a gift from God. You are free to accept Him or not.

However, I cannot help think that if this had something to do with a non Christian religion, it would not have been a problem.

If it had something to do with a Muslim religion it would never have been allowed. The school would have seen to that and used the constitution to aid their case.

You're delusional. God doesn't exist.

I can only respond with a quote from Archbishop Fulton J Sheen.

"There are two kinds of unbelief; those who say something is not true because they wish it were not true, and those who say something is not true because they wish that it was. The latter kind is curable."

Which one are you, my friend?

The good thing is nobody has to prove it to you. All they have to do is tell you about Christ. It's your choice whether you want to believe it or not, either way, one day you'll stand before him and enter heaven, or you'll enter into eternal damnation. Again, whether or not you choose to believe is irrelevant. Christ isn't the one that needs saving, you do.

But there may be a student with another religion that may feel peer pressure into a majority religion.

so if your parents taught you a certain religion growing up is that peer pressure also should the government start regulating parents? When these public schools play private christian schools there are verses and prayer should the public school be banned from going to private christian school cause someone might be peer pressured ?

I don't think you are seeing my point at all. And your rebuttal makes no sense.

Maybe you feel Christianity should be taught in school but that is what the law says. If it were the law I'm sure the superintendent being the devout Christian woman she is would have fought the challenge tooth and nail.

In government establishments we have a right to be free of religion.

I'm sure it was taught as an elective and not a required course.

not surprise me anymore to much evil in the world today. People have lost the most important thing in the world today and this is respect we have no respect for the other person. We should try to help others. Not try only think about yourself. if you see somebody that is in need, try giving them a little help sometime instead of always laughing at their situation, know this your day will come when you just might need that same person to hand you one class of water. May sound a bit strange now ,but wait awhile
