My own experience tells me this excuse is simplistic. Having participated in a conference of ministers discussing teaching creation science at a small town public school in Oklahoma, I know that conservative preachers will drop their demand for public schools to teach creation science if that also means the schools will be teaching the creation accounts and religious beliefs of Native Americans and other religions.Posing the rhetorical question, how can history be taught without teaching about religion? Oh, I forgot. History is taught in an amazingly slipshod and useless way in public schools in the USA.
