Lemme guess who the two were….

Supreme Court….goverment subsidizing religion…..

The Supreme Court, in a new rendering on separation of church and state, voted Wednesday to let states withhold scholarships from students studying theology.

The court’s 7-2 ruling held that the state of Washington was within its rights to deny a taxpayer-funded scholarship to a college student who was studying to be a minister. That holding applies even when money is available to students studying anything else.

“Training someone to lead a congregation is an essentially religious endeavor,” Chief Justice William Rehnquist wrote for the court majority. “Indeed, majoring in devotional theology is akin to a religious calling as well as an academic pursuit.”

[…]

Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas dissented.

“Let there be no doubt: This case is about discrimination against a religious minority,” Scalia wrote for the two.

“In an era when the court is so quick to come to the aid of other disfavored groups, its indifference in this case, which involves a form of discrimination to which the Constitution actually speaks, is exceptional.”

When exactly did Christians become a “religious minority” and a “disfavored group” in the United States? I must have missed class that day.
