That said, I never experienced that growing up. The only mention of religion in school was the Pledge of Allegiance. I grew up in the 1980s/1990s.

I'm also an atheist and consider myself a secular humanist. I don't believe that people need to be afraid of God to be a "good" person and I don't believe religion has a place in public school other than as a subject being taught from an academic perspective.

Unfortunately, to many otherwise intelligent people it is.
