  6. This grant was one of the most commented issues in the Star Ledger. Was cause of a huge chill hashem and it should be dropped and not appealed. The ends do not justify the means.

  7. This case was about the United States of America's Constitution and the separation of church and state. If any of you read the decision you would note that a Christian school was also denied funds. The $10.6 million was a payback for the Lakewood bloc vote. You should also be aware that no means no not antisemitism.

    1. The suit was brought by the ACLU which has long had an anti - religous view, mot just Judaism, but any religion.

      I don't know about this particular case, but they have been on a decades long crusade to expand seperation of Chirch and State well beyond the clear intent of the framers of the constitution.

    2. It's not as simple as you're trying to make it out to be. Supreme Court first considered the question of financial assistance to religious organizations in Bradfield v. Roberts (1899). The federal government had funded a hospital operated by a Roman Catholic institution. In that case, the Court ruled that the funding was to a secular organization—the hospital—and was therefore permissible. Who can argue that any part of BMG is secular?
