Are They Serious?

You know your position on the separation of church and state is totally messed up when you start to believe that things like this make sense:
A California teacher has been barred by his school from giving students documents from American history that refer to God -- including the Declaration of Independence.

Steven Williams, a fifth-grade teacher at Stevens Creek School in the San Francisco Bay area suburb of Cupertino, sued for discrimination on Monday, claiming he had been singled out for censorship by principal Patricia Vidmar because he is a Christian.

"It's a fact of American history that our founders were religious men, and to hide this fact from young fifth-graders in the name of political correctness is outrageous and shameful," said Williams' attorney, Terry Thompson.

"Williams wants to teach his students the true history of our country," he said. "There is nothing in the Establishment Clause (of the U.S. Constitution) that prohibits a teacher from showing students the Declaration of Independence."
Do the idiots at Stevens Creek School not realize that their position doesn't make any sense. They ultimately claim that religion has no place in American schools based on the founding documents of the United States (i.e. the Constituation, Bill of Rights, etc...). Now they want to ban those same documents because they refer to God.
