Missouri’s Amendment 3 Is A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

This nice sounding law to impliment a cigarette tax to help improve health care and access to early childhood education hides a sneak around Missouri’s own constitution prohibiting government endorsement of and aid to religious institutions: these places already get tax exemption; they already get privileges not afforded to other organizations; if religous organizations cannot survive because their own flocks abandon them, taking money used for the general good to prop them up is one very poor idea indeed. Religion is a creed. If it shrivels, then it’s their own message that is the problem, not the tax payers.
