Kudos to The Supreme Court

(April 5, 2011) NRB applauds yesterday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision in Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization v. Winn. This pivotal 5-4 decision reversed a Ninth Circuit Court ruling and eliminates an “easy pass” given to radical secularists for the last 40 years to challenge church/state relations. In this particular case, that means that parents seeking to apply state tuition tax credits toward tuition for private religious schools won’t be bothered with “taxpayer” challenges to those school choice plans. This new ruling will also likely apply to a wide range of other church/state challenges.
