"Wait, not that kind of school!"





And what will happen when the Church of Satan inevitably sues the state for public funding?

8. That was my first thought too

Every town of any size has a Jewish day school.
Let's make sure the crazies realize that their dream of tax money to religious schools will also will be going to schools that teach that we are still waiting for the Messiah.

38. Not in most of the South

Only the very large cities (Raleigh, Charlotte, Winston Salem and Greensboro) along with college towns (Chapel Hill). Now that will lead to some Jewish schools getting dollars, it won't be a huge number.

47. More than you would expect

The mosque that got burned down in Victoria, Texas apparently has a school.

Victoria,Texas has about 65,000 people in the 2020 census.

Or fund the Secular Humanists, the Pastafarians, the Global Pagans Warriors, or the Undead Of The Inquisition.

3. I just have to wonder ...

... do the RWMC justices not even think of these possibilities? And if not, they're not qualified to be making these edicts.

I mean, the basis of the decision is shit enough. State fuds financing religious entities? That's a fucking no-brainer! But while they're making edicts to change society into the theocracy they want, do they ever think through the possibilities of these decisions? Or do they plan on eliminating all religion except for fake christianity now?

16. You listed the goal of the religious right radicals on the SC.

Make all religion in the US illegal except for extremist white evangelical cults, and maybe leave the other Christian denominations like the Episcopalians alone. They’ve already ruled that there is no such thing as separation of church and state, so they will not let a little thing like a Constitutional mandate against establishing a state religion get in their way as they go about rewriting the Constitution by turning it into a right-wing Christian manifesto.

9. Let's see, originalists believe that we have to use the words they wrote.

To understand the Constitution.

Let's try this on for size.

Memorial and Remonstrance against Religious Assessments.

So James Madison was opposed to religious assessments (that's your tax dollars), so clearly giving your tax dollars to religious institutions must be what was meant by the establishment clause.

I'm not sure they speak English.

13. In practice, public funding for religious schools will only happen in white Christian areas

The ruling was that states can fund religious schools, not that they must. And you need a certain demand to set up a school and then get public funds sent to it. Areas with enough demand to make religious-but-not-Christian schools feasible are also highly likely to be Democratic areas, that don't feel like shitting on the separation of church and state in the constitution - unlike the Republicans who will gladly do so.

14. Actually public money does go to Muslim schools

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%BClen_movement_schools

American charter schools founded and/or managed by Hizmet members
Gulen followers have been active in founding approximately 120 charter schools in 25 states. Although there is no formal networking of all the schools, collectively they form one of the largest collections of charter schools in America."[24]

There are many allegations about money-laundering, kickbacks, investigations, and raids concerning charter schools founded or operated by Gulen followers.[30][31]

The FBI has investigated Concept Schools, which operate 16 Horizon Science Academies across Ohio, on the suspicion that they illegally used taxpayer money to pay immigration and legal fees for people they never even employed, an Ohio ABC affiliate discovered. The FBI's suspicion was confirmed by state auditors. Concept Schools repaid the fees for their Cleveland and Toledo schools shortly before the ABC story broke, but it's unclear whether they have repaid—or can repay—the fees for their other schools.[31] In December 2013, the FBI raided another Gülen-linked charter school, Kenilworth Science and Technology Charter School, located in Louisiana. The investigation, initially for tax-related purposes, led to the discovery of a business link between the school and Harmony Public Schools, another Gülen-linked charter school district based in Texas that makes up the state's largest charter operator.[32]

Two schools, located in Texas, have been accused of sending school funds—which are supplied by the government—to Gülen-inspired organizations. Last year, The New York Times reported that the some schools were funneling some $50 million in public funds to a network of Turkish construction companies, among them the Gülen-related Atlas Texas Construction and Trading. The schools had hired Atlas to do construction, the paper said, though other bidders claimed in lawsuits that they had submitted more economical bids. Folwell Dunbar, an official at the Louisiana Department of Education, has accused Atlas's vice president, Inci Akpinar, of offering him a $25,000 bribe to keep mum about troubling conditions at the Abramson Science and Technology School in New Orleans. Dunbar sent a memo to department colleagues, the Times-Picayune reported, noting that "Akpinar flattered him with 'a number of compliments' before getting to the point: 'I have twenty-five thousand dollars to fix this problem: twenty thousand for you and five for me.' " Abramson is operated by the Pelican Foundation, which is linked to the Gülen-inspired Cosmos Foundation in Texas—which runs the two Texas schools.[31]

17. They will freak out

Years ago one state did this and then freaked out when a muslim school applied for tax dollars. The christians in the legislature stated that was not what they envisioned. Only Christian schools could apply. Court ruled against the christians and said all religions qualified. They were not happy campers.

28. I can see one condition upon which it might be constitutional for government funds to go to

a religious school -

and that would be if those funds were restricted to the use of teaching civics, and that the curriculum for this be all government- approved.

Anything else, not so much.

(a Muslim-oriented private school a few blocks from his house) should get the funding too if they request it. Since I'll be there, maybe I'll ask him why the madrasa he often mocks academically out-performs all other religious private schools in Dallas.

Sometimes, it's the little things.

35. As the dissent pointed out, religious minorities will be too small to establish schools.

In the rural communities involved in the Maine case, there will be insufficient Muslims, Jews, etc. to establish a religious school to take advantage of the now forced state support of religious schools. Instead, Muslims, Jews, and other religious minorities will be required through their taxes to support religious institutions to which they do not belong or wish to support.

The separation of church and state is now a fiction. SCOTUS has ruled that if financial support is provided to any private schools, it must also be provided to secular schools.
