Did you ever notice that the persons who love to claim that Christians are out to quash everyone's freedom; and want to oppress everyone, are the same persons who have so strenuously and forcefully fought to have a monopoly on what our children learn in public schools? i.e.. to push their views of sexuality and the origin of humanity as the only ones allowed to be taught, etc The irony should not be missed.
Why not allow open debate?, critiques of textbook views? and alternate views in our textbooks? Let the children ultimately decide which ideas sound most reasonable. If the secularist view of the world is right and true, what is there to be afraid of in debate and presenting alternate views? Secularists have become so defensive about the truth of their own views that, instead of debate, other views are either ridiculed or outlawed. It is the nature of human beings to think of themselves as unbiased, neutral bystanders, so totalitarian tendencies often sneak in without notice.. It is awfully convenient to declare that one's own view is "not religious" and thereby give yourself the right to monopolize the dialog in education.
