For example, the administrators at Columbine have told students that religous content was not going to be permitted on a memorial. This is absolutely unconstitutional.

Mmm...if the memorial is publicly funded, I don't believe this is unconstitutional. Maybe they'll take it to the Supreme Court and we'll find out...

I'm curious about your use of the word "religious." I've found that most conservatives who use this word don't mean "religion" in a generic sense; they mean "Christianity." Now, if an ecumenical group of students made up of Christians, Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, Wiccans, etc. wanted generic religious language on a publicly funded monument, I would have no problem with that. However, I suspect it's Christian students who want Christian language. Not if it's publicly funded.

wondering when "conservative" started meaning "only Christians allowed"
