I did sort of point at an entire group of people
didn't i? I should have said "Christians that i know".

I can't help but agree and disagree. The way that
religion is dealt with in the public school system
stinks. A child not being allowed to even _speak_
about religion is outrageous. Freedom of speech is
dying, and what are we doing about it?
Once freedom of speech is gone, that's it. The
government will have complete control. People don't
realize how important this freedom is.
As for creation theory and the theory of evolution,
i'm not clear on my opinion. Both are widely accepted,
and neither can be proven. I don't think one should
be forced in just because another is, it should be up
to the teachers to decide their curriculum.
