Because government is such a big part of the economy that, realistically, keeping government money out of the hands of “creationists” would likely require that step.
Further to “Time Magazine claim: Voucher schools teach kids to mistrust science,” pundit John Nolte has this to say at Breitbart about the suddenly surfacing claim that school vouchers are bad because voucher schools might teach creationism:
It is this simple: Democrats and left-wing outlets like Politico have spent the better part of a decade turning the word “Creationism” into a divisive buzzword.
Well, there is a segment of the voting and lobbying public with which that works. He goes on to ask an interesting series of questions about how government can succeed in stopping creationism:
Should Politico and taxpayers be concerned when a welfare recipient gives a portion of their welfare money directly to a church that teaches Creationism?
What about school teachers, who the government hands “taxpayer dollars” to in the form of a paycheck; shall we wring our hands when public school teachers use “taxpayer money” to pay the tuition for their child to attend a school that teaches Creationism?
What about all bureaucrats; firemen, policemen…. Should Politico “Special Report” the fact that millions of civil servants could and might use “taxpayer dollars” in the form of a paycheck to pay for tuition at a school that teaches Creationism?
Maybe it should be illegal for welfare recipients to even put even one “taxpayer dollar” in the Sunday collection plate of any church that teaches Creationism.
Maybe civil servants should be told they cannot put a single “taxpayer dollar” of their paycheck in that same collection plate.
Maybe teaching Creationism should be outlawed.
Maybe believing in Creationism should be outlawed. More.
Given his opposition to the whole thing, not clear why Nolte thinks he should give government ideas, like that. 😉
