Religious liberty just won a victory at the Supreme Court!
This is a good day for the religious freedom guaranteed in our Bill of Rights, and also a win for the cause of educational choice.
This case, Carson v. Makin, originated in Maine where the state passed a law allowing students in towns with no public high schools to participate in a state aid program to help pay tuition at alternative schools. Students were given the option of attending another public or private school. Sadly, the state prohibited aid to students if the private school was religious.
A solid court majority of 6-3 ruled this ban was unconstitutional. Their decision is a clear indication that a majority of justices will not permit religious discrimination in America.
Let’s give thanks to God for this victory today, which advances our Constitutional right to religious liberty.
