So we should teach Creationism as science in schools because "all sides should be heard"

--- but when it comes to learning about the black experience via Critical Race Theory, the book burnings and legal bans start. Also, removing Confederate monuments is "erasing history." Huh.

5. I guess we have to teach the side that Trump won the 2020 election in schools too

Or maybe history will judge that side as a bunch of sore losers trying to keep their false narratives going well past the point of plausibility.

There will be private schools around to cater to whatever your worldview happens to be. It actually costs money to remain that ignorant.

6. We are a secular society

If anyone wants religious institutions, they can go to the church, temple or synagogue of their choice. Otherwise,stfu. Donít dumb down the kids..our future. Maybe the adults ranting about this could use a few lessons, too

8. The founders wanted us to have freedom of religion and freedom from religion.

The real question is which creation myth do they teach, there must be dozens of them.

9. If they want "both" sides

11. That's a topic for a religion class.

Religious Theory 101.

Teach all beliefs, including atheism and agnosticism.

13. Too many loons believe we should...

The GQP has completely abandoned science, they want people stupid so they are easier to control... And they are getting their wish. A large enough portion of their base are simply no longer in touch with reality that those in office have to bow down to them or their offices be lost.

14. Should we teach that children lose their baby teeth because of the Tooth Fairy?

Both the Tooth Fairy and Creationism have an equal amount of basis in fact.

So, I am inclined to vote no on that question.
