The Establishment Clause is quote clear. It states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.
It doesn't say a school teacher can't.
School teachers aren't Congress.
Are you gonna fight to stop all Christian related holidays from being expressed at our schools or is your ignorant focus just on Christmas?
So if certain schools in Michigan want to teach Muslim theology and celebrate Muslim holidays, the Christian and Jewish schoolchildren should just get on board - right?

--There is a 58 percent chance that an atheist leader will murder a noticeable percentage of the population over which he rules.
--Atheist crime against humanity is 18.3 million percent worse than the very worst depredation committed by Christians, even though atheists have had less than one-twentieth the number of opportunities with which to commit them.
Nobody has ever killed for a lack of belief in deities just as nobody has ever killed for a lack of belief in Snow Pixies.

Glad I could help.

This is the kind of thing that makes my blood boil, and intensifies my resolve to see that church weakened. It hurts people. It's hurting schoolchildren by keeping their worlds smaller and more ignorant, and by impairing their competitiveness in the job market. And it hurts the nation, which is already reeling from problems like an increasingly gullible and incompetent electorate, and too many citizens distrustful of science and unable to understand the climate change problem or the threat it entails.
It's too serious to be polite about, and that is just one front. The church is what it is: a selfish and destructive force that needs to be opposed and weakened.That will come about quickest with the use of forceful, urgent, and indignant language not watered down by concern for who is offended.
I know how much language like this riles the Christians - how evil, god hating and intolerant they see us. But really, we can't afford to care about that under the circumstances. There is no reason why others should treat the church with any more respect than it offers.
It is indifferent to the damage it does, contemptuous of the law and of church-state separation, and of the values of secular society. I'm sure that it is for reasons like these that Hitchens said, "I think religion should be treated with ridicule, hatred and contempt, and I claim that right."
It's more than a right. It's a duty.
I agree completely.

I haven't had a chance to watch this yet but here it is anyway:

Except for the 89 atheist rulers of the 28 historical regimes in the past century that have killed an estimated 148 million people, that is.....

.. it's tricky. When a student broaches a religious topic, a teacher must decide if it falls under The Free Exercise Clause. Sometimes drawing a clear line is difficult ..

.. public school teachers must ensure that there is no religious or anti-religious discussion within the classroom ..

The irony is that the Redneck warns others to watch their temper, yet he's the one who smashed a windshield with a club, with the driver in the car.

And hits babies and women.

Of course they didn't lack belief in a deity, they were the deity, albeit a mortal one. Its sad to see the position you homersexshulls have to take because of your different behavior. There must be lots of angst in your crowd

Do you really think slavery is any worse than the millions who crowd the freeways everyday , working jobs they don't necessarily like for less money than they need? Why? So they can eat, pay the mortgage, taxes etc etc? Slavery may have been the best thing that ever happened to Africans. Look where theyre at now. They absolutely dread going back. The Jews were freed from slavery, then they wanted to go back to Egypt. Imagine that. Slavery is a very subjective term. No one is as free as they think. I wont even get into the millions of psychic slaves , which I think you are.
Look at what a Christian feels compelled to argue in defense of Christianity.

"Organizing for Action", a liberal group, has a new ad out encouraging people to support Obama raising the minimum wage.
It shows a woman riding a subway as an example of a low-paid American worker.
She turns out to be a British citizen, shown in London, riding the East London Line to Newcastle.
Sure, let's trust the advice of these people.
This kind of dishonesty is rampant with liberals. Its amazing how dumb the masses are in swallowing Their propaganda

That's right. Take away my right to vote because you disagree with me.
You atheists make me sick.
There are more farmers and ranchers in this country than there are atheists and secularists. More than 30 million of them. You call that "a very few".
All the food you get comes from those "very few" ranchers and farmers. Have some respect, asshole.
What is it with this rant about farmers? All I said was that farmers don't need to shoe horses themselves, all they need to do is get a blacksmith. And you go off on a rant?

And just what the heck are you trying to say with your demographics?

You seem to have run off into non sequitur land.

The original point was...since you seem to have such a short attention span...that in some charter schools all children are being taught Hebrew...which is pretty much a useless skill unless you are going to be a Talmudic scholar or a diplomat to Israel.

Just as horseshoeing is a pretty useless skill unless you are going to be one of the handful of blacksmiths still plying that profession.

Jeez.
