Is mentioning religion in a classroom illegal?
I live in Utah, a highly religious state with an unfortunate affinity for Mormons, but I am an atheist. However, almost all of my teachers are LDS, and say so in class. For instance:
"While I was on my 2-year religious vacation in Taiwan.." (a clear mention of his LDS mission)
When talking about a student's class changes, which involved dropping LDS seminary: "Are you sure you made the right choice?"
"Hunter's an *atheist?*" with an expression of disbelief and pity
"As you know, the Church believes that..."
"Abraham tells us that..."
I am just wondering if things like these are illegal. I understand mentions of religion in my AP Human Geography class, in which an entire unit is devoted to the spread of religion and its impact on migration, but its mention in Math or Chinese shouldn't be happening. Should it?
