Rev. Amy Gearhart, the senior pastor at the Missouri United Methodist Church, said the Methodist Christian denomination supports the separation of church and state.

“Too often, a proposed bill … is an attempt to ‘Get God back into the schools,’ when in fact, God has never left the schools,” Gearhart said.“God is in the teachers and teaching and the students and learning.”

Gearhart said Christian teachings are better left out of the classroom.

“Our Christian faith is to be taught in the home and church so that Christians can interact with people of all races, faiths and creeds in the public schools and witness to a way of compassion, generosity and justice,” Gearhart said.

AGREED!

Religion is up to our free time and family time BUT we should still saluite our flag every day and say the Pledge of Alligence inculing ine nation under God. Also all schools should have a 15 minute quiet time shere a student can pray or worship in their own way.
