[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]Religion should be excluded

I am a student attending a Christian university. Students, who are attending middle or high school at universities established by Christian foundations must attend religion classes.
Middle and high school students who do not have a choice on attending classes are obliged to attend the classes, but it is problematic for university students, who have the freedom to choose any class, to follow the rule without exception.
The Constitution specifies freedom of religion, which Christian schools ignore. I cannot understand what legal basis these schools apply to insist that students attend these classes. Those who are not Christian should sit still during the class even though they do not want to.
Furthermore, these schools accept applications from students who do not Christian, and after they are admitted the universities show guidelines. The religious classes at these schools should be changed to elective courses.
