Interesting week in religion

It can safely be said that opponents and proponets of  religion in public have each gotten their say this week.

In Tracy, Calif., the city council received a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation asking it to stop saying prayers before meetings and invoking the name of God.

A little farther west — and closer to home here — the school board in Spencer, Iowa have proposed a policy that would offer students elective classes on the Bible and on arguments against the theory of evolution.
