“Once upon a time, public schools respected religion. They taught the Bible and posted the Ten Commandments. Then big bad liberals came along and took God out of the schools. And the rest, as they say, is history. That’s what right-wingers want you to think, but they’re wrong. In earlier eras, religious instruction wasn’t nearly as common as they say. And when it did happen, it was promoted by political liberals as well as conservatives.” (07/08/24)
