So you also believe in monsters under the bed. You should consider growing up.
Monsters under the bed? Where do you come up with this stuff at? How did we get on the subject of that? Talk about moving the goal post! LMFAO

I already said I don't think kids should have to/be forced to take a Christianity class. It should be their choice. Same as I stated about teaching evolution at church, go ahead but people should only come to it by choice.
The problem is that you don't want them not to require evolution to be taught in high school. You don't want them to teach biology, since evolution is an integral part of biology. Nor do you want them to teach Earth Science since paleontology is an integral part of geology and you cannot teach Earth Science without geology.

It would be like telling a physics class that they can teach all about physics except for gravity. And if you are a YEC you have serious problems with gravity whether you realize it or not.

Sub I have nothing against teaching either. But no one should be made to learn one or the other. Just saying let them choose which one they want to learn more about

replaytime, you cannot teach religion in a public school. Evolution, regardless of what you think it is, is not religion. Creationism is religion.

Never called evolution a religion. But if a kid wants to pray in school he should be able to for he is not teaching religion, he is just doing what he believes helps him, but yet he can't drop to his knees and pray because it has been banned in many schools.

Religonmortis and school don't mix, you must get inoculated, immunized and grow brains.

Now there's a fine idea.

A mother asking her twin children about school:
"John, what did you learn in school today?"
"I learned that the Ark was made of Gopher wood and that God made it rain for over a month straight."
"Very good. Tom, what did you learn?"
"I learned about oxygenic prokaryotes and photosynthesis in the open oceans."
"Well, that's very good, too! Now who wants an ice cream bar?"

Kids are able to pray in school. It is a base canard to imply otherwise.

And dropping to your knees in a public place is not proper praying according to Jesus. Read your Bible.

Don't be a liar for Jesus.
