We're registering as "religious"?!?

I consider myself a secular homeschooler, in that religion is not our reason for homeschooling.
However, our state requires us to register as either a secular or religious homeschool--and gives no guidance whatsoever about its intended meaning in those terms.
My husband and I have interpreted that to mean that if we ever want to include any religious topics or materials that would not fly at the public school down the street, that means we are not a secular homeschool. And since I plan to include some religious stuff with ancient history in first grade (after we start with the Big Bang, evolution, and prehistory)... I guess I can't declare our homeschool secular and tell the story of Moses a month later.
So legally, we are going to be a religious homeschool, I guess.
