Student wins battle to form atheist club at a Georgia H.S.
Colin Muller, a junior at George Walton Comprehensive High School in Marietta, Ga., was denied approval from his school in April to start a new student group titled Freethinkers for Acceptance Cooperation and Trust. (FACT). The school has more than 70 approved student groups, including the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Muslim Student Association.
Seems like this has been happening a lot lately - atheists/agnostics winning against school authorities. (In part thanks to groups like FFRF.)

2. Of course they do...
But like the "In gawd we trust" on currency and buildings, it's symbolic, not religious.
