    Florida’s voucher program is the latest to fall victim to the Blaine Amendment built into its state constitution.

    But isn’t it nice to see church-state separation taken seriously for a change?

    I hope they’ll strike down =all= the monies going to religious institutions (like any state aid to religious colleges, rent moneys going to churches when they’re used for polling places…)

    …and what everybody conveniently forgets is that these Blaine amendments were intended to target the Catholic churches and schools only (which were the “sectarian” institutions), as everyone knew that Protestantism was taught in the public schools and any Protestant church was a civic pillar, as opposed to those foreign Catholics. Or something of that nature.

    Bah. Blaine this.
