Now, I'm not against informing people about both sides of history - But this reeks of an underlying theological/socio-political motive. They aren't only pushing to include information about conservatism and Christianity, but seek to glorify it while discounting the opposite viewpoints. Beyond this, it seems as though they are attempting to censor actual history from the civil rights era.
Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.
