Today's ruling further erodes the separation of church and state. It was a 6 to 3 vote with the three liberal judges voting no.

    As long as religious schools of all religions are included, it doesn't violate the Constitution.

    Donna,
    If a madras(sp?), an Islamic school, was the school in what question, do you think the SCOTUS decision would be the same. Bottom line taxpayer money is supporting religion.

    I heard that while listening to Glenn Beck this morning. I'm wait to see the opinion before I say roo much.

    But, based on what we know about the vote, I think it's appropriate to redrscribe the so-called Libs as Big Bro Justices.

    I could just hear the dissenting Justices saying to opinion author, John Roberts, "But John, but John! Rights are not absolute!"

    To all you Big Brother-ites: Individual freedom matters.

    Maybe the "liberal" justices want to avoid the slippery slope the ruling would create. Eventually schools run by the Church of Satan will demand to receive taxpayer funds.

    Actually, Donna, they're going through the Church of Satan thing just a few miles from here, in Harrisburg.

    pb understands that our Representative Republic is a risky attempt to live together as free individuals.

    pb understands the risks here. And, pb embraces the potential.

    The cynical part of me does suspect that you Big Brother secularists understand the power of faith...

    ...and, it scares the bejeebers out of you.

    I'm sure that offends you, but I think I'm right.

    You're saying that out of your own sanctimony, Hate.

    Even when America was comprised of a much higher percentage of Christians than it is now, taxpayer funds weren't ever used to support religious or private schools.

    So our viewpoint is in fact a traditional conservative viewpoint.

    Your viewpoint and the viewpoint by the so-called conservative justices is extreme.

    "pb understands the risks here. And, pb embraces the potential." -Hate


    That would be a true response from you to how you really felt at the time about Trump's coup attempt.

    Just curious. What about that is, specifically, sanctimonious?

    Arrogant? I can see that. Combative, maybe. But, sanctimonious? Seems derivative, of me, keeheeheeheeheeheeheehee.

    Perhaps there's a way that you're being, uh, conservative, after a fashion.

    But, that was my point. To think Liberal/Conservative never has fit with the Court.

    Liberty-loving/Big Brother authoritarian does fit.

    You secularists want to take over the world. Bahahahahahahahahahaha! And, you seemed to be on track. Not so much now.

    From that gay Guy Curt's never heard of:

    "Their position is: Taxpayers must fund abortions, but must not fund the religious education of born children, even if there are no government schools in their communities. That is deeply f***ed up. Thank goodness there are only three of them on the Supreme Court."

    "but must not fund the religious education of born children, even if there are no government schools in their communities. That is deeply f***ed up"

    If there are no public schools in the area, taxpayers dollars should be and usually are used to build one. Here in Maine as I'm sure they do in other states, rural communities work together to create regional public schools.

    Are there really areas that have private schools but no public schools and no regional schools?

    If there are, then I can see where taxpayers might not object if some of their tax dollars used to assist a private school so that their kids could get educated...But I'll bet they'd be a bit choosy about what kind of private school their tax dollars went to support.

    We are going through this issue right now with the 18 month old. Public schools teach "public teachers' union" doctrine. My area is much like the british "system" where the poor go to public schools, get a brain scan and are sworn to uphold the status quo as they are taught. Actually, the british borrowed this from Goebbels, a master of "teach the children and the revolution will happen." This is borrowed from Engles, whom Marx has murdered.

    We actually have small "schools" that are actually home schooling in a communal setting. They just stole from the harpy movement of the 60's and 70's to teach things that don't violate the parents core values.
