Other than noting, for the benefit of the other children in the room, that most people do not share that viewpoint, you do nothing. Teachers and school systems cannot force-feed an ideology to their pupils, period.
Now if the kid was so wacked out as to be constantly disturbing class with his beliefs, that would be a little different; the kid doesn't have any more of a right to proselytize in class than the teacher does. But a one-time mention of something like that, no. The parents have the inalienable right to believe anything they want to believe, and to teach it to their children. They can't act on their beliefs if it would harm others, but they can sure believe it.posted by aaron at 9:41 PM on June 29, 2000
