    My very public school made me take the same math classes for 3 years, even though I aced them.

    Seems like that would be more damaging to someones education.

    Total bull. Louisiana has a minimum curriculum to accept funds and none of that stuff is taught anywhere in the state, in fact the only difference between the major public and private schools in my location is that parochials have a prayer time and public schools cannot do such. The parochials teach; history, chemistry, biology, evolution, physics, and everything else required to survive in college.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    "Fact" is apparently another one of those liberal code words that means, "Things that make no sense that we desperately want to believe."

    My children attended a unionized public school. Things they were taught. The Holocaust never happened. Spelling, punctuation, structure, and grammar are unimportant. Communism is the only compassionate system. The earth will be destroyed by pollution in a few years. DDT causes cancer. And, my personal favorite, the Constitution is a living document and doesn't need to be followed.

    A school teacher asked her class of young students one day, "How many of you love President Obama?"

    All the kids in the class raised their hands except one, little Johnny.

    Teacher: "Johnny, you did raise your hand, why not?"
    Johnny: "I don't love Obama."
    Teacher: "Why don't you love Obama?"
    Johnny: "'cause I'm a 'pulican."
    Teacher: "Why do say you are a Republican?"
    Johnny: "My Father is a 'publican, my Mother is a 'publican, so I am a 'publican."
    Teacher: "If that is so, what would you be if your Father was stupid and your Mother was an idiot?"
    Johnny: "Then I would be a Democrat and I would Love Obama."

    Considering that religious tax-payers have to pay towards schools that disallow even extracurricular religious classes, it must be difficult for said people to care about the complaints directed towards this issue in particular.

    Most if not all public school systems. Because those classes would be religious in nature, they aren't added as extracurriculars in the public school system and they certainly aren't funded by taxpayers.

    I'm not sure what you talking about. Do you have an example?

    I do know that these guys Fellowship of Christian Athletes are allowed to have clubs in school and utilize classrooms to meet.

    With respect it seems to me that the public school system doesn't allow any religious, extra-curricular classes. That said, they also wouldn't allow any sort of religious class, whether an extracurricular or not, to be funded by taxpayers.

    Since taxpayers don't pay for any religious classes... because there are some atheists who would be very much against it... it's understandable if religious people don't care about the complaints of some regarding this issue.

    So do you think students should get credit for Sunday school?
