At a Humanists of Houston meeting last week, 19-year-old Sara Elizabeth Sheppard explained that she decided to use her cell phone to record her high school economics professor after he “started to talk about religion in an inappropriate manner.”
During the one lecture, the teacher claimed that atheism was against human nature, and that “the mind rejects the concept of atheism” just like the body rejects smoking. The next week, he taught a lesson advocating prayer for a positive state of mind.
More importantly, does a high school ECONOMICS teacher even *have the right* to talk about anything other than, y'know, economics?!

I would reference the other questions brought up in answers in the last week or so.
Because discussing religion in an economics class is absolutely the same thing as discussing anti-bullying in a social studies class
