Oh, my God! or is it Todd’s God? has generated a healthy debate on religion, science and public education. Mixing them isn’t good for public schools.
I’m a Christian raised on the Roman Catholic tradition. I don’t ask my daughters’ teachers to pray the Rosary with them and all their other students.
My parents chose for me to go to a Catholic school from 1st-12th grade so that I would be instructed in the tenets of our faith. They didn’t demand the public schools do it for them.
Todd Leonard and others can educate their children in the private schools and their homes in their faith, too.
Politicians shouldn’t be deciding what should be taught in our classrooms. Didn’t Hitler, Mao and Stalin do that?
