It's very common for Religious Myths to be taught in schools. We all learned the basics about Greco-Roman myths through both history and literature classes. And parents just assume this will be taught, no one gets upset or tries to picket over it... However, when a teacher mentions Jesus or other Christian based myth (even in an effort to teach history, culture or literature) parents of all walks of life are angered...
Now, I clearly understand that a great deal more people have Christian beliefs than beliefs based on Greco-Roman myths, but that doesn't change the fact that there are people who continue to include GR myths in their belief systems...
So, IYO, why is one considered teaching "religion" and rejected by the majority, while the other is simple accepted? When in reality, at least for a minority, they are both current religions?

Jesus wasn't a myth.
This is why it can't be taught.
