The Supreme Court has correctly noted that Blaine amendments were “born of bigotry” and “should be buried now.” When the government makes benefits generally available to its citizens, religion should never be a ground for exclusion. Religious believers should be free to participate in generally available government programs on equal terms with everyone else. The bane of the Blaines is religious discrimination. Their influence should be stopped now.
