So much for the constitution, Supreme Court takes scissors to it

On Twitter I follow a lot of state republican figures and they are all taking victory laps over the Supreme Courts ruling allowing public money to go to private religious schools.

From Reuters,

 The U.S. Supreme Court narrowed the separation of church and state in a major ruling on Tuesday by endorsing Montana tax credits that helped pay for students to attend religious schools, a decision paving the way for more public funding of faith-based institutions.

In a 5-4 decision with the conservative justices in the majority and the liberal justices dissenting, the court backed a Montana program that gave tax incentives for people to donate to a scholarship fund that provided money to Christian schools for student tuition expenses.

First you should know that Florida has been doing this for years. We have been sending wheel barrels’ full of money to school that can discriminate, pick who they take and keep and teach man lived with dinosaurs and slaves were free as long as they had Jesus in their hearts. 

Other states however have fought against this weakening of the barriers between church and state. They have said no to this obvious over reach and they could, up till today that is. 

This was a bad day for the constitution and sadly a good day for the creation of a state run religion.
