SCOTUS: States can't restrict school vouchers to Secular Schools

On Tuesday, 20 years after 2002’s pivotal Zelman decision, the United States Supreme Court handed down an exciting ruling for families across the United States. In the Carson v. Makin case, the Court has further clarified its ruling in Espinoza, which had established that states may not exclude school options based on their religious status.

In Carson, families sued when their options were limited based on religious use. In other words, lower courts had ruled that participating schools could be religious in name only – and families could not have the option if they did religious things.

Now, the Court has ruled 6-3 that this barrier is unconstitutional. The ruling says, “A neutral benefit program in which public funds flow to religious organizations through the independent choices of private benefit recipients does not offend the Establishment Clause.”

Statement from Tommy Schultz, CEO of the American Federation for Children:

“This is a thunderclap for education freedom. Parents across America can celebrate today as the Court has affirmed their fundamental right to choose an education that works for their family. With today’s ruling, the rights of American students have been resoundingly confirmed. Now, legislators in every state must take action to provide as many options as possible to families in their state. AFC stands ready to support this goal.”

During the arguments:

"So as the law is written, a parent can't use the money to go to a local Catholic School, but could enroll their kid in an explicitly Marxist School."

Maine Bureaucrats (Seething, but compelled to tell truth): "Yes."

This is the "Secular Switcharoo" the Dems are trying to enforce: Where secular worldviews can be totally government funded no matter how extreme, but not religious ones.

SCOTUS did not designate a particular religious sect or denomination the ruling applies to so that pretty much leaves the door open to religions some people won't like

Madrassas aka Taliban in Michigan

Instead of bulletproof backpacks prayer rugs and head coverings will be required and then they get to the "good" stuff

That is for much later. The Muslims in Michigan and other places have figured out what to do without drawing a lot of attention and assimilated quite well - get elected to public office, get on school boards, one law at a time, one regulation at a time - slow and steady wins the race.

No reason to be in a hurry - most people in this country do not have the attention span required to watch a 30 minute sitcom without taking a break for snacks etc. so paying attention to someone doing things at turtle speed will be like watching paint dry.

In some countries English is taught as a second language from grade school, other countries all the students learn martial arts and the majority are fairly adept by the time they leave high school.

They think in terms of 1,000 years in a country that is just over 200 years old.

Things are moving pretty fast in fly over country, all things considered, especially chunks of Lower Michigan and parts of Minnesota. - like China they play a long game and we play a short game. They learn from the past - we forget about it.

We underestimate our enemies and over estimate our military (we have not done very well since WWII) - our enemies have noted that and will use it against us.
