Watch how many minority store-front "churches" suddenly become schools and apply to milk the taxpayers.

New Hampshire has the highest average IQ of any state.

No southern state has an average IQ higher than 99.

The voucher idea is an attempt to give Christians more power and influence in governing.

This has the distinct odor of the Catholic Church working the smoky back rooms and we all understand the nature of the Catholic Church. Their flock has been declining in population and the church is desperately searching for ways to prop up the institution with taxpayer money. I'm not religious in nature and especially have a bitter distain for the catholic hierarchy. Remember, the pedophile fiasco cost the church untold tons of money and this looks like an attempt to restock their coffers . . . . .

Confiscating money from taxpayers to give to religious organizations is not a legitimate function of government.

Government needs to stay out of religion anf religion needs to stay out of government

You want to know why the lowest average IQ states are down here? It's because every damned retired Yankee moves down here the minute they can sell out and get the Hell out of the ice storms and snow and sleet and blizzards up north. I'd dare say the proportion of Yankee aggressors to native southerners is close to 75% to 25%.

Parents that pay top dollar in Seminole Co. school taxes, should be able to have some of those tax dollars pay for private religous schools, if they so choose to send there children their. This country is making a huge mistake by cowering to the non religous groups that are ruining our children, wake up America !!!!!! That is why our children have no respect for human life anymore.

I beg your pardon, you need to get your facts straight, the Catholic religion has never been stronger in faith or numbers. If you think the Catholic church is the only faith that has been smudged by this horrific crime, you better google it and get your facts straight.

The reason the dumbest states ( I assume because of the average IQ of the inhabitants ) is because all the dumb A*5*5 Yankee snowbirds have all flocked down here to get away from the cold weather and retired here. We multi-generational Florida natives enjoy a very high IQ and are distressed constantly by the influx of illegal immigrants and other riff Raff from all over the World who seem to end up settling in here.

Those who pay for their own kids' schooling,including home schooling, should not have to pay school tax.
