Supreme Court Opens Floodgates To Taxpayer-Funded Religious Schools -Above the Law

| No Comments


Well, the Establishment Clause had a good run.

This morning, the Supreme Court stretched the Free Exercise Clause to swallow the Establishment Clause altogether in Carson v. Makin. Before today, the Court already hamstrung the Establishment Clause by ruling that government programs that funnel funds to religious entities don't necessarily violate the First Amendment, if citizens simply had the choice of sending those funds to religious institutions. Now, for the first time, the Court ruled that government programs must send money to organized religion if a citizen wants to.

You know, that deeply held religious tenet to... have your neighbors pay for your kid to go to religious school.
