That is unless the religion happens to be science and theory which gets shoved down my kids' throats every day.
Oh, but that's different. :)
You are going to have to explain that to me - I don't know of any science that is a religion (except Scientology and that is not yet taught in schools that I know of). Can you explain how a scientific theory can be considered a religion? And what do kids throats have to do with school? Is this some sort of rant against oral vaccines?
