The money is going for education, to an institution that provides secondary education in an area in which the government has failed to do so. The money is not meant for a specific religion.
Barring all religion-based schools from receiving the money would be in effect establishing atheism as the official religion of the state of Maine.
Public schools were established because there were people in charge who understood the necessity for a democracy to have educated citizens. It was and is an investment in the government of the Republic, not well fare or "free stuff". As with the common effort made for defense, a common effort is made for the education of citizens, which is at least as important.
Assuring that such a school system maintain proper standards relies upon valid oversight.
You need to read Everson v. Board of Education.The choice of sending a child to a religious school is not denied simply because the state doesn't pay for it. That would be like saying the second amendment is being "infringed" because the purchase is not subsidized.
The first amendment's prohibition of supporting religions is being undermined in this issue.
No, because it's a silly example of the classically moronic "google the internet and you'll see that I'm right!" non-argument.Why? Because you cannot read?
Hey dipshit! You can't read the links I posted i response to other people's ignorance of the Constitutional law and rulings?No, because it's a silly example of the classically moronic "google the internet and you'll see that I'm right!" non-argument.
Oh, and also combined with the moronic "I make your words big and red, so now they look wrong," non-argument.
I choose not to read any link that you post Admiral. If you had any confidence in the point they supposedly make, you would not resort to name-calling and childishness.Hey dipshit! You can't read the links I posted i response to other people's ignorance of the Constitutional law and rulings?
I have literally forgotten what you were even talking about, and I have no desire to waste my time reminding myself. If you want to have a grown-up debate, I suggest that you grow up.This was in post #47, right before you clutched up and got your panties in a knot!

One more little chip struck from the establishment clause. It's going to be interesting to see Christian types still try to keep money away from schools ran by other faiths.
Actually, Admiral, I've had plenty of very productive and enjoyable adult type debates with people on here of all political stripes.You calling me childish is the ultimate in hypocrisy, junior! I doubt anyone else will tolerate your impudent attitude and juvenile debating skills. Dumbass!
I call names when they are deserved. Hopefully, it makes an impression on you and you can see how you look to others with your ignorance on full display.Actually, Admiral, I've had plenty of very productive and enjoyable adult type debates with people on here of all political stripes.
Maybe you just started out wrong by going to name-calling immediately. I may have jumped into an exchange between you and another poster and maybe you were wound up and didn't pause to think that I was a different person.
I'll give you another chance. If your next post is intelligent and mature, all previous will be forgotten.
That makes no sense, because you are the only turd in the punchbowl for my posts.I call names when they are deserved. Hopefully, it makes an impression on you and you can see how you look to others with your ignorance on full display.
How many times have I taken your ignorant statements and shoved them up your ass? Have you lost count because there have been so many?That makes no sense, because you are the only turd in the punchbowl for my posts.
Not to mention that by the very act of name calling, you eliminate yourself as a person whose opinions might have value.
