I like when schools include all rather than banishing all.
I also think that the schools forbidding a child from praying quietly over his/her own lunch are wildly misreading the laws, and in every case I've heard of that's what has been decided. As far as Bibles being taken, if any other book being read in class was taken too. But if a student is having free time to read what they wish, then they ought to be able to read their Bible.

|Regarding BC and AD usage:
BC = Before Christ,
AD= Anno Domini = the year of our Lord.
BCE = Before Current Era, so the dates are the same but the abbreviation isn't based on one religion
CE (the usage I learned in college) = Current Era, again no reference to any one religion, even though for convenience's sake the numbers of the years are the same.

i vote the otherway: lets pick a collective favorite number and declare this year to be that number. i'm think 7165 sounds good to me. for the 0 demarcation we can use BA and AA, Before and After Arbitrary.
