Equal Access at the Schools?

In response to last week's Walking The Line.

I was very surprised to learn that right wing religious groups are legally proselytizing to children in trailers located next to the public schools. Of course they want to spread their religious bile while the children are young enough to not have fully developed critical thinking ability. Indoctrinate them while they are young. While these groups think it is their fundamental right, I wonder how they would respond if a Muslim organization were to bring in their own trailer espousing the Moslem faith? Or how about an atheist group, which wanted to teach critical thinking? I am sure they would be outraged. After all, freedom of religion only means freedom of their hate filled ideology and cannot be extended to any other group. Nothing closes one's mind and hardens one's heart like religion.
