Chief Justice John Roberts gave another opinion Tuesday that could prompt religious believers to thank God for the First Amendment. Parts of Maine, the most rural state in the country, do not operate their own high schools. Rather, the tuition money is sent to the school of the family’s choice. But religious schools are notably excluded.
“This is discrimination against religion,” Chief Justice writes for a 6-3 majority in Carson vs Makino, Thus Maine’s policy violates the Constitution’s guarantee of religious “free exercise”. This case is like a court heard from montana two years ago. As Chief then wrote: “A state is not required to subsidize private education. But once a state decides to do so, it cannot disqualify some private schools simply because they are religious.” Huh.”
