Barbieri Calls Public Schools ‘Godless’

Rep. Vito Barbieri is defending a statement posted on his re-election campaign website in which he called on Christians to pull their children out of Idaho’s “Godless” public schools. In a debate on TV Channel 19 between Barbieri, R-Dalton Gardens, and his Democratic challenger Cheryl Stransky, also from Dalton Gardens, Barbieri was asked about this statement posted on his website regarding public schools: “One more thing: If you accept Jesus Christ as Lord and God, then pull your kids out of that Godless institution.” Barbieri told questioners from the Coeur Group that he stands by the statement. “My words exactly,” he said/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Do you agree/disagree with Rep. Barbieri's description of public schools as “Godless”?
