Many religious people want their own religion to be taught to their kids in school so they know more about it in the future and so they get people to convert to their religion easier because they know more about it. The first amendment states that “congress shall make no law respecting establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Now a days they have separation of church and state. Many people believe that praying in public like at a football game or graduations it is nothing different from one who is saying the pledge of allegiance. So if they can respect when people say that and they are proud of their country then people should understand that some are very proud of their religion and should be allowed to show it no matter where they are.

Should be used for those purposes only and can have a bible and prayer session after school. Many important things are learned and taught in schools and that’s the only time.

They understand that many people have very strong beliefs and would like their kids to understand it as well but they don’t believe that school is the most appropriate time for that and think that the people how fight for this so strongly need to take some other time when nothing so serious about the future of their kid is being taught to them in a class room.
