Sorry God, but stay out of my school

"A Congress that allows God to be banned from our schools while our schools can teach about cults, Hitler and even devil worship is wrong, out of touch, and needs some common sense." Rep. James Traficant, (D-OH) 1999-APR-27

I completely and fully disagree with this quote. Why shouldnt God be banned from schools? Teaching about things like Hitler, is HISTORY, thats not teaching devil woship! Hitler a modern history figure, whether he did stuff good or bad, he still greatly influenced the world, and needs to be taught. But GOD? There is no proof, no direct evidence of any thing. How can you teach in school about something that is not prooven after the age of enlightenment and science has urged to rely on evidence for truth and what to teach. If we were to allow teaching God and other religions in public schools, and public schools are funded and a part of government (in a sense) , it would basically destroy the line that seperated church and state. This could be the demise of our whole political system
