Really? Suppose your kids came home from school and told you their teacher had spent a sizeable chunk of classtime telling them about this thing called the “Rapture”, which was going to happen at any moment? Would that be Ok?
Shouldn’t teachers spend their classtime teaching? I mean, it is a school.
Last year we discussed on these forum - a protestant science teacher who basically lost his job because he had a bible on his desk. Maybe I am wrong but I’d rather risk the “Rapture” than having a secular teacher teacher tell my children there was no G_D.(This actually happened.)
This happened to a friend. Her elementary child tried to take a stand against abortion and was ridiculed that she was “intolerant” of other peoples beliefs.

Why is it you believe that Christian activity is not allowed at schools. The law states that any group organized BY the students are entitled to the same benefits offered by the schools as other organization. To prohibit the benefits because of religious affiliations is considered discriminatory. The only restrictions are that TEACHERS and SCHOOL OFFICIALS may monitor but they may not participate in the organizations official activities ie, prayer, bible readings ect. There is no restriction to religious activities in the schools, the restrictions are limited to who can and cannot participate.
I am from New England. I remember when pictures of loving gay couples hung in one of elementary schools on diversity day.
Our **Holiday **Concert was all about Santa.
It’s pretty tough to get elementary and middle school children to organize such a group.
