I'll agree with your reading of Howell's email. As I setatd in my last comment, while Howell could have been more clear, after reading the entire email I do not read it as advocating Catholicism; so I suppose we don't have much more to say here.As for Abington v. Schempp, the paragraph you cite endorses the objective study of the Bible and religion. It has nothing to say about allowing less than objective approaches to religion as long as the class (or practice) is not required. This particular case has been an important one in the development of religion departments throughout the US. I know of no religion department at a public university that would allow the advocacy of any religion in the classroom, regardless of whether or not the class was required. Several scholars such as Russell McCutcheon have written on rise of religion departments in relation to Abington v. Schempp and stress this point (although I can't find the exact article at this moment).
