The doctrine of separation of church and state is tantamount to understanding the foundation upon which this country was founded. As a people we are free to worship as we wish or not. The freedom of religion must also include freedom from religion, as hard as that may be for some organized religious groups to accept. We can choose to send our children to public or parochial schools. I think the public schools would be best served by maintaining the separation of church and state. If you let one religious group on campus, you must let all religious groups on campus. What chaos that could be. I believe the academic study of world religions to be valuable, but not until middle or high school years. We can attend church services, prayer groups, and a multitude of religious activity in our private lives. Let's please leave our public lives free from this kind of infringement.
