Supreme Court breaches separation between church and state in new ruling

Also available on the nbc app

The Supreme Court is breaking down the barrier between church and state in their latest ruling. Maine gives taxpayer money to families who live in areas that don’t have public high schools, but that public money is banned from being used in schools that offer religious instruction. In a six to three decision, the Supreme Court ruled that this is religious discrimination.
