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"

Sorry, Ellen. In fact, some of the best conservative writers are Jewish.

Many are black or hispanic or asian, too. Check out David Horowitz or the Jewish World Review sometime.

The fact is that the minority has to show some tolerance for the fact that this country has a culture that we are not going to give up just because they don't feel a part of it.
