Reckless bills involving the Bible have surfaced in two states – one is dead, but the other remains in play.
Let’s say you work as a teacher in a Catholic school in Cincinnati and your old friend, who is gay, invites you to New York to attend his same-sex wedding. You attend and snap some photos of this happy event, which you post on Facebook.

This is a good thing. Vouchers are a bad idea that distract from meaningful education reform.
