Supreme Court To Decide If Atheism Can Keep Its Monopoly On K-12 Schools


Via: Vic Eldred  •  203 comments  •  2 days ago  •  LOCKED
Today the U.S. Supreme Court hears a case that could determine whether parents and taxpayers have any choices about the kind of religion American children are taught with taxpayer funds.   Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue  concerns whether private donations may support schools that make their religious beliefs explicit. It could also undo a century of U.S. court and legislative...

Perhaps it’s no surprise that the possibility of yet another war in the Middle East has brought out the worst in so many conservative supporters of President Trump. But even if that prospect seems to have been put off for now, it’s likely that the ugly impulses that have surfaced will emerge again and again as we approach the elections in November.

In the chaotic days leading to the death of Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, Iran’s most powerful commander, top American military officials put the option of killing him — which they viewed as the most extreme response to recent Iranian-led violence in Iraq — on the menu they presented to President Trump. They didn’t think he would take it. In the wars waged since the Sept. 11, 2001,...
