Justice at Last for Religion in USA, King Solomon Blog

Rudy is celebrating. Why? The Supreme Court overturned nasty laws called Blaine Amendments.

Should we be happy? Yes, but we also need to be realistic. In addition to the fact that it took the Supreme Court so long to get a throughly antireligious law overturned, it is also disappointing the the decision was so close, 5-4.

So, it goes. We have to take what we can get. We cannot expect perfection from men.

You may ask what is a Blaine Amendment? Rudy links to one of his old posts, but here is another good source => https://education.findlaw.com/curriculum-standards-school-funding/what-is-a-blaine-amendment.html.

Why has it taken so long to overturn Blaine Amendments? As this article observes, https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2020/06/30/supreme-court-rejects-montana-blaine-amendment-in-religious-schools-case/, just because no one wants to appear to be an anti-Catholic bigot anymore, religious bigotry has not gone away.

Montana ratified a Blaine Amendment in its 1889 constitution and again in 1972, prohibiting public funding of “sectarian” causes or religious institutions.

While some claimed that the amendment was first enacted in a time of anti-Catholic bigotry, to bar the access of Catholic institutions to public funding, others said that the updated amendment in the 1972 constitution was meant to bring the state in line with the “Establishment Clause” prohibiting a state religion.

Letting parents decide where to educate their children violates the “Establishment Clause”? Seriously? When parents decide where to send their children to school, that establishes a state religion? Unfortunately, some people can shamelessly spout the most outrageous nonsense with a straight face. Thus, antireligious bigots are using First Amendment’s “Establishment Clause” as as an excuse to empower partisan teachers unions (unionized government employees). There control over the public school system allows them to instruct our children in isms like Multiculturalism and Human Secularism, religious beliefs. Hypocrisy?

Finally, after the end of the Civil War, Supreme Court ruled against religious bigotry.

The Chicago Tribune article titled, Justices lift ban on State aid to schooling, reported that the Supreme Court finally, ruled the States enactment of the Baine Amendment were violations of religious freedom in the USA.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb to this decision and hope that parents now be free to peruse school choice or school vouchers in their States, Hopefully to end the double taxation imposed on them to make it unaffordable to choose what schools are best for their children instead if government bureaucrats.

King Solomon

Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. (Proverb 1:8)

What’s My Point?

While the First Amendment states citizens have the right to religious freedom, government approved laws steeped in religious bigotry were passed by…

  1. Tom,

    Thanks for the reblog and great comments.

    You mentioned the word hypocrisy.

    While the word certainly describes the issue in my opinion, what I find sad is that the most vocal critics to school choice is the Democrat party which Blacks believe represents their interests more than conservatives.

    Frankly, I believe Blacks having never experience being taught in private religious schools cannot understand the value of being taught religious tenets to guide them on their paths in life.

    I intend to write a post on this thought based on the Bible story that warns to watch out for wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing.

    My post tomorrow is a blank accusation that the Democrats pounding their chests proclaiming that they best represent Black interests are in fact using Black lives as collateral damage to win the 2020 election.

    Thanks again for your support for school choice or school vouchers to allow parents to choose what is the best path in life instead of government bureaucrats.

    Regards and goodwill blogging.
