Speaking in advance of a U.S. Senate committee inquiry into the state of religious freedom in America, Dr. Franklin Clark Fry, president of the United Lutheran Church, declares that it's impossible for public schools to be neutral in religious matters.

According to Fry, schools must either endorse or deny God, there is no third option.

Dr. Fry says:

"Education must be based either on the idea that there is a God or that there is not a God.

To take the neutral approach, as if it is not a matter of importance whether God exists or not, is equivalent to saying God does not exist.

This is the terrible predicament of education."
