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

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

 

Within this noble-sounding law to implement 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 religious groups cannot survive because their own flocks abandon them, taking money used for the general good to prop them up is one feeble idea indeed. Religion is a creed. If it shrivels, then it’s their own message that is the problem, not the taxpayers.

I'd love to hear what you're thinking right now. Let me know.
