Evangelicals are making children their missionaries in public schools

There are 5 comments on the www.guardian.co.uk story from Sep 28, 2012, titled Evangelicals are making children their missionaries in public schools. In it, www.guardian.co.uk reports that:

Adults can't proselytise in schools - but kids can. Hence a new scam by fundamentalists to circumvent church-state separation Annual 'See You at the Pole' prayer events, where youths are expected to organize a demonstration of prayer by their school's flagpole, are primarily tended to and hosted by adults.

I live in Texas and my husband and I had problems with our daughter's school when she started sixth grade. Christian children were constantly asking her, "Why don't you go to church?", "Why don't you believe in god?", "Are you a Satanist?", etc. My daughter has a terrific sense of humor so she started countering the questions with funny quips and even graphic blasphemy.

Some of the kids were genuinely curious about her disbelief in THEIR god and she was able to engage in discussions. Other Christian kids did bully her but she fought right back with blasphemy. For example, one kid who was constantly bothering her asked her in front of a group, "Don't you believe that Jesus was God? He walked on water!" My daughter responded, "Of course Jesus walked on water...SHIT floats!" The kids, church-going kids, loved her response and began to laugh. She was able to hold her own and I told her that I would back up her open blasphemy as long as she was NOT the one who started the religious discussion. She learned to stand up for herself, use her wit, and had an opportunity to challenge proselytism with ideas about the Bible that pastors never discuss.

Many kids fake their piety due to parental pressure but these are the same kids who watch shows with graphic blasphemy such as "Family Guy" and "American Dad".

Cults behave like cigarette companies. They know that if they don't get children addicted before the age of 20, they may never get them addicted.

Religions have to molest children with religion (in the same way children are sexually moslested) to ensure the cult continues to exist. Adults can defend themselves, so not as much effort is put into raping them with religion except through laws.
