Why is Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos Wading Into Religious Issues

By on June 26, 2017

The Department of Education just released the following press release.

DeVos: Supreme Court Sends Clear Message that Religious Discrimination Cannot Be Tolerated

“Today, the Supreme Court of the United States announced its ruling in Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia vs. Comer, holding that the government may not deny a generally available benefit on account of religious identity. After the ruling, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos released the following statement:

“This decision marks a great day for the Constitution and sends a clear message that religious discrimination in any form cannot be tolerated in a society that values the First Amendment. We should all celebrate the fact that programs designed to help students will no longer be discriminated against by the government based solely on religious affiliation.” – Source

In fact, the decision by the Supreme Court does not come to the same conclusion that the Secretary of Education claims it does. The decision reached by the Supreme Court says, “This case involves express discrimination based on religious identity with respect to playground resurfacing. We do not address religious uses of funding or other forms of discrimination.” It’s not the blanket win DeVos either apparently believes or claims it to be.

It seems to me DeVos is making the pitch more public tax dollars should be used for education even if they go to religious organizations. Or something like that.

Why in the world do you think DeVos sticking her nose in religious issues and not sticking to the job she is appointed to execute? Post your feedback in the comments below.

    I agree, why she is commenting and not doing her job is astounding me. It’s clear she wanted to be put in any “big” government position, it didn’t matter which, just one where she can make her opinions seem like they matter. Disturbing trend indeed.
