Shrug, if it was a pro-religious speech, the very same members that are angry that he got shut down would be calling for him to be shut down, citing separation of church and state. If it is wrong for a pro-religious message to be in a school, then it is just as wrong for an anti-religious message to be in school. Either both are acceptable or neither are.
The article even says that the speech mentioned Ghengis Khan, and if you look him up, he is a self-described Shamanist. He supported religious freedom throughout his reign. Again, nothing to with your addition to blame Christianity...but I'm still looking...
