    Sure, take the government money, just as soon as they drop their tax exempt status. I've seen numerous videos of tel-evangelicals acting nuts (Kenneth Copeland) or begging for people to send in $, or pastors claiming those who attended their services would be protected from the virus.

    This is a really really bad idea.
    Why? If they are considered businesses then they are businesses and qualify for aid. What "separation" are you talking about? You can use a federal student loan and/or grant to attend a religious college. Both the Senate and House have Chaplins and even prayers. Separation originally just meant no official state religion. Like you didn't have to be a certain religion to hold public office or be hired for a government job, or serve in the military.
