Bill O'Reilly says any mention of Jesus in the public school system is fraught with controversy. But, he argues, "Jesus, Moses and Judeo-Christian tradition are an important part of this country's constitutional history."

Fox political analyst Charles Krauthammer said on The O'Reilly Factor Tuesday that for Jesus and Christianity to be brought into public schools, the curriculum should be focused on the faith's historical relevance to and role in the nation's founding.

He noted that the Constitution protects public schools teaching about Jesus and Christianity in a historic context.

“Under the First Amendment, you can clearly teach about religion,” Krauthammer said. “You want to have a high school course on the history of religions—of comparison religion—on the influence of religion on the American founding, on Lincoln on his view—his understanding of divine justice of the Civil War—that would be perfectly reasonable and I don’t think there’d be any objection.”
