      Not to belabor a point menenoitd nearly weekly on the talking heads shows the US is a republic, not a christian state. The Constitution protects the freedom of religion (all religion) and does not allow for favoritism or the rule of any religion over the state.It would therefore be inappropriate for a religious book to be formally taught in a public (secular) school beyond the confines of a comparison religion class. Surely we have enough ridiculous televangelists on the TV and radio to appease? There are enough Sunday schools and other church related events for people to take advantage of if that is their prerogative.Reread the real histories of our Founding Fathers, the Declaration of Independence, and the formation of the US Constitution. America is certainly not any kind of religious state by design; not mistake. Gentlemen, we are not, nor have we ever been a Christian Nation The United States is not a Christian nation any more than it is a Jewish or Mohammedan nation. ~~John Adams Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting Jesus Christ, so that it would read A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion; the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination. ~~Thomas Jefferson; Autobiography, referring to the Virginia Act for Religious FreedomBilly Graham: No! We’re not a Christian Country. We’ve never been a Christian Country. We’re a secular country, by our constitution. In which Christians live and which many Christians have a voice. But we’re not a Christian country.

    There were, up until well past the 1900s.Prayer in Colonial Schools:In Colonial America the schools were motsly run by the churches. The first settlers in America felt that it was important that children learned to read so they could read their Bibles. Learning right from wrong and developing good moral character were considered as important as learning the 3R’s. School Prayer was a natural part of the Pilgrims school life. The Churches played a big part in the formation of schools in America: See History of Schools in AmericaBible Reading School Prayer:As part of the daily curriculum, students were taught to pray and read using the Bible. Later in 1690 the New England Primer was introduced which taught spelling, reading and the Alphabet using Bible verses, thus teaching both reading and Bible morals at the same time. Daily school prayer was a natural part of this educational system. After the American Revolution, Noah Webster introduced the Blue Book Speller which also used Bible verses to teach reading and spelling. In 1836 the McGuffey Reader was introduced which also featured Bible verses to teach moral values. This school system produced some of the worlds brightest inventors and set the Industrial Revolution in motion. The schools continued to be run motsly by Christian Churches until the 1890 s at which point States started to take control of the existing schools. By 1900 many other text books were in use and they all had Bible quotes in them.
