It also mentions how public places, such as school, do not approve of talk about religion, despite the fact that they participate in activities that include religion, such as holidays or places of worship. "If [Zachary’s] school doesn’t teach young kids — or allow them to discuss — the truth about religious conflict in history, what exactly does it teach?"
