    Not what they can teach but they ought to be held accountable for what they actually do teach.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I believe the U.S. should become officially a Christian nation.

    So that we can agree on a common core set of principles.

    Because it's proven in its ability to unify and the ideas are battle tested over hundreds of years

    Has it? If the Russians paid me a good sum, I would probably spy for them. I have zero loyalty to this country. That's because I know it's a sham, the constitution is a weak document, and we don't actually live in a democratic or a free society.

    Well thats not very patriotic of you... What makes you think if our constitution says "The official religion of the USA is Christianity" is going to make more people loyal?
