What is your ideal of how the public school system should handle this? The Bill Nye example seems extreme to me. I believe that the responsibility of educating our children should rest with the parents first, then the local community, the the larger community, etc. Not top-down from Washington. Where did Washington assume it had the right to indoctrinate our children? Given the exclusion of religion from the public sector, education necessarily then becomes a secular humanist teaching.

Do you believe that people who don't belong to a church should be permitted to marry? I didn't say that. A Christian marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman. When marraige is still between a man and a woman even if they're not religious, it doesn't offend one with this sacred view of marriage. As long as the "legal state" doesn't contradict the "religious state," you'll find no argument. An even more conservative viewpoint would question why the government is involved in defining marriage in the first place.

The example given regarding the Mormon church is interesting, since it defined a marriage between a man and only 1 woman. Homosexual marriage was not included as an acceptable state when polygamy was eliminated.
