Why should one religion be given preference? Since there are many religions (and many, many people with no religion), there should either be given equal precedence or none.

Keeping the bible away could be a good or bad thing, depending on if the kids decided to take it literally or not.

But given the discrepancy (and the wealth of religions in the USA), it's by far the best for it to be out. Would you enjoy your kids reading the Upanishads or the Qur'an?
