What if it were suddenly deemed that the US was a Christian country. Whose Christianity would be the ruling religion? Would it be the majority? Catholics? Would it be one of the hundreds of Protestant factions? Which one? Who would decide? What if a crackpot like Jerry Falwell got to decide? Or a cokehead like king george? Then what?
What if it became ok to talk about your religion at public school? How much blood would be shed on the playground? What if it became ok to pray aloud in public school? What would everyone pray for? Who decides?
We are lucky enough to be able to practice whatever religion we want to in this country. Think about what would happen to that freedom if it became part of public school.
