“During a week in which much of our focus is on the public assault on our democratic values that took place on Jan. 6 — and just as a looming Supreme Court decision seems all-but-certain to strip away the federal guarantee of reproductive rights at any moment — that same court may have more stealthily put the dagger in another principle on which our nation was founded. In the case of Carson v. Makin, the court ruled that public funds intended to support the education of students for whom a public education option was not available must be made available to parents who wished to use them to pay for religious schools’ tuition. In so doing, the court’s conservative majority essentially ordered that taxpayer funds be used to support religious institutions.” (06/23/22)
