    No, you don't see at all. You're too blind with your partisan lies and hate.

    Religious schools should not be receiving public monies - will say many critics BUT
    you can't just discriminate against religious institutions while funding secular private ones. It would be like having a plank that said you can't fund schools run by blacks. A school is a school is a school, even if it is run by people the state doesn't approve of.
    Why should even more of my $$ go to other people's kids? I dont have kids.

    If you want the benefits of private school, pay for it.

    I support their right to do so (even tho he's suing).

    However I also dont believe they should receive any public funding (not just for this reason, but in general).

    To me, refusing public funds enables them to retain their autonomy.

    Notes: SSM has been legal here a few yrs and sexual orientation is a protected class in this state.

    That doesnt mean it's not worth discussion.

    the question is why do you want to keep kids in bad public schools? I thought you were for poor kids? yet you want to keep them in bad schools that limit their education possibilities
    why is that?
    I agree but I'd rather see public $ go to improving the public schools.

    because throwing more money at it always solves the problem, however in this case it doesn't.
    the only way to solve the problem is to close bad public schools and funnel the money and students into better schools in the area.

    if you think that more money is going to fix inner city schools then well you are wrong.

    I object to you wanting to give kids a bad education. yes people with this mentality are negative for society.
    they refuse to let kids attend schools in which would greatly benefit them in terms of education and success.

    i guess it is easier to manipulate the educated masses verses educated people that have been taught to think for themselves.

    It also does not mean that it is wrong to put that discussion in proper context to the story so that people are not misled by the headline in the event that they assume this was based on the US Constitution.

    CO pretty much does everything right.
