Glad you asked.
Missouri doesn't want to give any grant money to a Lutheran school to resurface their playground. Missouri is wrong.
Here's my non-legal, but logical answer to Missouri:
- States mandate children attend school
- Local municipalities require that property owners pay for the schools by way of their property taxes.
- Some people choose to send their children to a religious school instead of a state school.
- The people of this country are afforded the right of equal protection.
Those are facts, are they not?
Are the parents of children attending a private religious school exempted from paying property taxes in support of state schools?
Why, no - no they are not.
And yet Missouri insists that giving grant money to a Lutheran school to resurface a playground "enriches the church property" and is against the separation of church and state - a concept that exists nowhere in the constitution.
Listen you dopes - the only thing that is enriched by you helping the Lutheran school resurface the playground is the children attending the school. You know, the children whose parents are helping to pay for your crappy state schools and the very same children who are afforded equal protection under the law. What the hell part of that is so hard to understand?
So, because Missouri obviously has a bunch of dopes running their grant programs (which is probably block granted money from the feds), we must waste the time of the Supreme Court justices.
