    In a way, aren't ANY reasons ideological in nature?

    What about Catholic school? Greek school? Muslim school? They are all indoctrinating their belief set in children's minds. Do you have a problem with them as well?

    Sorry, I have a terrible crush on Adrian Brody. I just changed this for a friend, but my willpower has faded and now I have to have him back.

    I'm confused. Based on everything I've already said, why do you think I'm more inclined to give them a free pass?

    Not really, nor does "our public school is a demilitarized zone."

    I am asking you - you seem to have issue with Christian-based lesson plans, so I just want to know if you feel the same way about others? Just curious. Don't get your knickers in a twist. Because it seems that a lot of people have problems with allowing Christians to do something, but when it comes to other religious groups, it's OK.
