    One of the major reasons for the foundation of America was religion should not be involved in government. This is yet another step backwards, which is at the very kernel of fascism.

    I never saw this coming, from U.S. supreme court ignoring the constitution, or intentionally so severely misinterpreting or ignoring U.S. laws. What do
    we need the Supreme Court for if they decide to ignore our constitution and U.S. laws? I think we need a four year moratorium Supreme Court justices trampling on our constitution or current laws. I see that corruption our presidency, all his White House cabinet picks, his anti-government choices to lead some of our most important government agencies, his anti American Supreme Court justice pick. Then we had our most corrupt ever Congress are quickly rubber stamping his horribly inappropriate choices, to distract the public while they work secretly to sabotage various important social programs, ignoring the U.S. public's interests in favor of major tax cuts for billionaires and various huge corporate giveaways. We all need to do something now to fix this destructive mess.

    yea I think the separation of church and state was profoundly violated when tax payer funded grants for playgrounds was approved by the Supreme Court for a church school in Missouri ….

    The Justice's opinions are violating the basic tenets of the US Constitution. That's why I call these laws are color of law a fiction.

    So I guess we will have to wait for a madras operating in the U.S. to eventually be taken over by terrorist minded radical to get a federal grant for a playground/war fighting obstacle training course before the Court realizes this abuse of First Amendment principle that retrains the government from such an absurd entanglement.

    It seems to me that if Churches want the same things that everyone else gets then they should have to pay taxes like everyone else does!!!

    I was wondering it sounded like this church also ran a school right? I thought in that case there isn't much of a problem am I missing something?

    Why don't they just pray the cuts and bruises away? Oh right, God needs money to function.

    everyone needs to chill the fuck up, they founded the school not the church.. get that through your heads.
    The problem is you people have schools run by churches(that's the frikin problem), but once you allow that, you can't discriminate them.

    America is a nation founded on genocide perpetrated against Native Americans and slavery perpetrated against Africans brought here in bondage for purchase. Sounds Christian to me!

    Time they start paying taxes then. What right do they have, being tax free, to anything from the government? So now we let the GOP and Trump get away with putting that extremist, Gorsuch, in the Supreme Court, the church will have their cake and eat it too…..

    Why is the government embracing/making use of Christianity? America is not supposed to be a theocracy. Churches should be taxed.

    Why don't all the religious institutions just pay taxes and then they can access public funds? No problem.

    it's time to start taxing these churches. they pay zero taxes. not even property taxes. my business is land development and these churches are making bank and paying zero.

    Looks like the mosque playgrounds also needs some playground rubber resurfacing.

    It's way easier to just hate your country and laugh at it these days than to still care and just keep feeling sorry for you :/

    Church and State news are great news because now by law the government can provide for MOSQUES, Synagogues or Satanic Temples…

    I actually think the gay couple suing over the wedding cake is wrong. I share the left wing orientation of Democracy Now and its audience. I hope the supreme court rules against the business owner specifically because it sets a legal precedent, and I don't think businesses should be able to deny needed services on legal grounds. But in a non legal, personal way, I absolutely think the wedding cake guy has the right to say no to the gay couple because he doesn't see gay marriage as legitimate. I do support anti discrimination laws in regard to necessities like housing and whatnot. But within their religious tradition, yes marriage is between a man and a woman. And it is incredibly petty and obnoxious for the gay couple to make a legal fight out of the baker's personal decision. Trying to shove tolerance down people's throats is the wrong approach.

    You'd be hard pressed to find a place in the New Testament in which any of the writers would ever suggest that we should choose away from service for such a reason. We are to love others as the father does. He send the sun and the rain on the just as well as the unjust.
