A group of taxpayers brought a lawsuit to cut off assistance to disabled students because they are attending religious schools. A trial court in Oklahoma agreed with the plaintiffs, and ordered this taxpayer assistance of disabled to stop. But this activist ruling was too much for the Oklahoma Supreme Court, which overruled the trial court and reinstated the assistance for disabled students at religious schools. The phony wall of separation of church and state came tumbling down for liberal Justices who had previously ordered removal of the Ten Commandments from the capitol. As explained by a Justice who concurred in the decision to allow this funding of disabled students, this is analogous to the State transferring prison inmates to a religious hospital for medical care, and paying for that care with taxpayer funds.
Now disabled students in Oklahoma who attend religious schools can pursue their education without worrying about an activist court cutting off their funding based on hostility to religion.
