Schools Should Teach Christianity's Role in U.S. History, Say Evangelicals

Americans can disagree on a personal level with what Christianity claims to be true, wrote Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family, but they “cannot question” the “central importance” of those Christian truths to the men who help founded the nation.

“Understand America’s history without any reference to her Christian heritage? You might as well try to tell the story of Huck Finn without mentioning the Mississippi River,” Daly wrote in a column posted in The Washington Post.

As long as they teach the role muslims, jews, and atheists in American history, I'm all for it.

But we know that is not their intent.
