Supreme Court Rules In Favor of Religious Schools, Says Aid Bans Are Unconstitutional

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision on Tuesday morning that Montana’s ban on religious schools receiving state aid — specifically scholarship funds — is illegal and that it’s unconstitutional for states to exclude religious schools from such programs.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Montana program offered $150 in tax credits for donations to scholarships for private school attendees. After a decision was made by state tax officials that religious institutions didn’t qualify, the case was heard by the Montana Supreme Court. The court cited a state amendment banning aid to sectarian schools and decided to dismantle the entire program.

The ruling will make it easier for religious schools to obtain aid — opening the door to more school choice policies, potentially including the funding of vouchers.

The case was appealed to the Supreme Court by parents suing for aid to assist in paying for their children’s religious private school education.

The case, Espinoza v. Montana Department Of Revenue, saw conservative justices in the majority and Chief Justice John Roberts penned the opinion. The ruling will make it easier for religious schools to obtain aid — opening the door to more school choice policies, potentially including the funding of vouchers.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
