    Was she stating it as fact and part of the lesson? I would object to any lesson in a public school concerning the existance of heaven.

    What was the class? Was it an English class and they were diagramming sentences provided by the student? In that case, the structure was correct, it parses properly. It could be used as well as any other sentence, such as "There are vampires in my neighborhood." or some other nonsense.

    Was it a comparative thought exercise? Perhaps the teacher was using that as an example of a statement that needs to be debated on its premise.

    I'd have to know more before I reprimand the teacher.
