How Much Religeon Should Be Discussed In Our Public Schools?

So, my 7th grader comes home from school yesterday with a homework sheet assigned by his Social Studies teacher. It is a crossword puzzle to be filled in with facts about the Church In Medieval Europe. My son proceeded to read some of the questions from the puzzle and I must say I was surprised at the content of the assignment. Some of the questions were:

-Person who oversaw the archdioceses?
-Who is second to the Pope?
-What is solemn rite of Christian churches?
-The study of God and religious truth?
-What is the celebration of Christ's Resurrection?
-Famous Italian saint who helped the poor?
-Number of sacraments?
-First important sacrament?

You get the drift of this thing. As a former Catholic, I'm a bit nerved up that my kid is learning this stuff in public school. I don't know if they will also be exposed to Islam or Judaism too or just Christian history and facts? Am I overreacting? Should I let this go? I plan to call his teacher and ask these questions, however, I'm asking for feedback from DUers on this. Any suggestions for additional questions for the teacher?

Thanks! This kept me up last night...

Havre Couple Running In Opposite Senate Primaries

This two people (allegedly married) are running against each other for Jon Tester's Senate seat. I found myself gasping numerous times as I read this article. Seems crazy con schemes are the norm in politics these days. Be very careful my fellow Montanans!

Wonder if it is just a glitch in their system network or something bigger? I don't use FB personally, just to market our business. Guess I won't be doing that today and I'm kind of relieved! Mama might get to go home early!
