    This is really getting rather silly. You're not responding to what I'm saying, you're going "but wait! What about this?"
    That's what they do. When they lose in one area they just move to another and pretend it's all the same discussion..

    No, that's what he was doing. This discussion had nothing to do with him wanting or not wanting to send his kids to private/public schools

    I didn't bring up private schools, you did.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    You said this Communities voting not to fund school transportation is not just an individual situation. It is becoming more prominent as the mind set of I don't care about my community is becoming more prominent. That is not to be confused with you being able to transport your children to and from school.
    No one said they did not care about their community. That's a false claim made by you in an effort to deflect from the central issue, and that's what leftists naturally do.

    Yes and you acted, through your false assumptions, without a great deal of thought.

    Not being willing to pay for the public resources in ones community speaks volumes no assumptions needed.

    You again make the false assumption that there is only one way to provide public services and that those who don't follow your one-dimensional beliefs are somehow acting against the interests of their community..
