The radical Left has known this day was coming.
They just hoped they could overthrow the Supreme Court before it happened.
But this massive Supreme Court decision delivered a major blow to the radical Left’s agenda.
With all of the issues facing the United States under the Biden regime, it’s hard not to wonder how much worse things would be had President Donald Trump not been as successful as he was.
One thing is for sure, had President Trump not nominated three strict constitutionalists to the Supreme Court, the lawlessness of the radical Left would know no limits at a time like this.
That was proven again this week, when the Supreme Court struck down a Maine law that banned parents from being able to use a taxpayer-funded school voucher program to send their children to a religious school.
The justices struck down the law after a six to three vote, with top Obamacare advocate, Chief Justice John Roberts, writing in the majority opinion that Maine’s law violated the Free Exercise Clause by forbidding religious schools.
“Maine’s ‘nonsectarian’ requirement for its otherwise generally available tuition assistance payments violates the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment,” Chief Justice Roberts explained. “Regardless of how the benefit and restriction are described, the program operates to identify and exclude otherwise eligible schools on the basis of their religious exercise.”
As expected, the Court’s three left-wing justices all dissented.
But in the minority opinion, left-wing Justice Sonia Sotomayor falsely claimed that the Court’s decision to strike down the law somehow destroyed the “wall of separation between church and state.”
“This Court continues to dismantle the wall of separation between church and state that the Framers fought to build,” Justice Sotomayor claimed.
The Maine law was meant to allow parents in rural areas without public schools to use taxpayer money (ie. their money), to send their children to a public or private school of their choice.
However, the law ultimately banned parents from using the money to pay for tuition at any schools with a religious affiliation.
The radical Left has long fought to make the American people believe the so-called “separation of church and state” is enshrined in the Constitution.
But of course, the phrase “separation of church and state” doesn’t appear in the Constitution, and arose from a letter Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1802 about the government not being able to establish a national religion.
Yet the Left has decided to try to force everyone to believe America is a secular nation and that religion should play no role in daily American life.
In fact, they’d really love nothing more than if they could outlaw religion tomorrow so they could force every American to worship government.
Make no mistake about it, though, Maine’s law clearly discriminated against those who wish to have their child brought up in a religious educational environment.
It’s not a matter of the Supreme Court elevating religious schools to any level of importance above other schools, but rather the Court ruling government cannot discriminate against religious institutions and pretend as if they’re inadequate to the horrendous product government schools are putting out.
And that’s a massive win for religious liberty.
