Public schools here dont even touch on religion outside of history.

Admittedly, most of what I know about the UK's RE program is from this forum but, based on that, it does sound like a mess. It just seems like a chance for various religions to proselytize on the public's dime. Having different points of view presenting their best case does not achieve objectivity or neutrality. But I doubt those are the goals of this course, any way.
