School Voucher Supporter Learns "Religion" Does NOT Mean "Christian"
Naw, Vouchers aren't a Great Right-Wing Christian Conspiracy. A Louisiana State Legislator nearly had meowlings when she learned that "religion" meant "religion" and not "Christian". Oh my... Louisiana state representatives were shocked to find that opening taxpayer funding to religious institutions actually meant all religions. Louisiana Representative Valarie Hodges, (R-Watson), nearly pulled her support of the bill when she found out the funding could be used to support Muslim schools (although the Muslim schools that originally applied have since removed their applications – this year). Representative Hodges mistakenly believed that the term “religious” only meant “Christian.” http://educatefortexas.wordpress.com/2012/09/06/texas-school-voucher-scheme-yet-another-blow-against-public-education/
