Denver Judge Blocks Vouchers For Rich Christians

Huck/Konopacki Labor Cartoons
Colorado's first school voucher program was put on ice Friday by a Denver judge who called the program a "substantial disservice to the public interest," the SF Chronicle reported today. The program would have given checks to parents in the state's wealthiest county for tuition at religious schools.

Some of the schools authorized for the voucher program require students to attend religious services.


  1. There are rich Christians? You sure about that?

  2. Well anonymous, the DeVos, Anschutz, and several other plutocrat families would insist they are. I understand what you are eluding to, especially if you are speaking about the words of the carpenter himself.

    However, in this nation, where the legacy of Calvinism as a justification for capitalism's brutality reigns supreme, I think we need consider that the wealthy at least want us to believe they are the real thing.
