Soapboxing aside, I'd say the OP's article is correct. Religious indoctrination has no place in school.
Agreed.

Religion should be kept out of the public schools. In most cases, once a child is old enough, they will choose whether to accept the science or the religion based version of where we came from.
Nothing wrong with religion in schools. Actually, I think it's very important to learn about religions. ALL religions. Otherwise you get homeschooled regarding religion, and that's mostly a bad thing.
Okay, learning about other religions is an appropriate subject in public schools. I spent my first years in a parochial school. It didn't teach evolution. Since I choose to believe Mr. Darwin, the nuns had a hard time with me.
