Public funding for religious schools is growing

The Supreme Court’s ruling that tuition aid can go to religious schools in Maine is the latest evidence about the breakdown of the wall between church and state (“Supreme Court Rules Religious Schools Can Get Main Tuition Aid,” Associated Press, June 21).  I support parental choice, but I draw the line about aid to religious schools.

I say that because religious schools already enjoy protection from discrimination laws under the so-called ministerial exception.  If such schools want public aid, let them play by the same set of rules as traditional public schools.
