    because government was doing this against gay people back in the 50's and its wrong.

    and in the same way government should not be using money to teach things against people religious beliefs

    can schools teach Jesus was just a drinking jew who was insane, and went around spreading lies he was the son of man....no

    government was wrong in the 50's and its wrong today if it teaches anti religious things to christians.

    You obviously figured wrong or assumed facts not in evidence. I didn't say anything about teaching "morals" except teaching tolerance. If you don't know what that word means I suggest you look it up.

    So they should teach children to tolerate everything that is legal, including prostitution, gambling, smoking, etc. wherever this is legal? And they should teach children to tolerate polygamy in countries where that is legal?

    well my question is if I teach my child something is wrong based on my religion, should they school undermined what I teach, and teach its ok.

    What exactly does that mean? Domestic violence exists. Should schools teach that?

    Well, I think I answered your question when I stated that the schools should remain neutral on these highly controversial issues.

    If you teach your child that evolution is wrong based on your religion, should schools not teach evolution?
