What is the quickest way to kill a school voucher bill?

Answer:Muslims

Tennessee Republicans threaten to kill GOP voucher bill over fear of funding Muslim schools

By David Edwards
Tuesday, April 2, 2013 15:58 EDT


Republican lawmakers in Tennessee are threatening to block Republican Gov. Bill Haslam’s school voucher bill over fears that Muslim schools could receive funding.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported on Monday that Haslam hinted that he would withdraw his bill after objections from Republican lawmakers that it was not broad enough and that the vouchers could be used by Islamic schools.

Over the weekend, state Sen. Jim Tracy (R) had told The Murfreesboro Post that he had “considerable concern” that tax dollars could go to schools that teach principles from the Quran.


Tracy, who is on the Senate Education Committee and identifies himself as a member of the Church of Christ, insisted that Islamic school funding was an “an issue we must address” before the voucher bill can go forward.

“I don’t know whether we can simply amend the bill in such a way that will fix the issue at this point,” he said.

On Monday, Tracy told the News Sentinel that his staff had determined that there was at least one Muslim-oriented school — Pleasant View School in Memphis — that would be eligible for vouchers under the governor’s plan.

And state Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris (R) worried that an attempt by Sen. Brian Kelsey (R) to broaden Haslam’s bill from the bottom 5 percent of schools to every school in the state would only make more tax dollars available to Islamic educators.

“That’s just another reason for not amending the governor’s bill,” Norris pointed out.

State Sen. Bill Ketron (R), who sponsored a 2009 bill that would have banned Sharia law in Tennessee, hoped to slow the entire process down.


“These issues warrant further assessment,” he remarked to The Murfreesboro Post. “What’s the rush?”

Last week, Ketron had demanded answers from state Senate Clerk Russell Humphrey over concerns that a floor-level sink installed outside the House chamber men’s restroom could be intended to accommodate Muslims’ ritual of washing their feet before prayer.

Humphrey took the matter up with Legislative Administration Director Connie Ridley, who assured the men in an email that “the floor-level sink installed in the men’s restroom outside the House Chamber is for housekeeping use.”

“It is, in layman’s terms, a mop sink,” Ridley wrote.

I swear there is this thing about the government not sponsoring a religion. I'm pretty sure it's an important part of some founding document or something.

Voucher bills have been killed by democrats for years now and this is the first time I've ever heard of one killed because of Muslims so, IMO that calls the thread thesis into question.

Could the vouchers be used to send your kid to a Catholic school?

Lots of quotes in this article...strange that none of them actually support the writer's claims, though. Why would the author only use the quote "considerable concern" and then revert back to his own narration, for example?

You can blame the conservative media bubble for not hearing about it. This isn't the first time:

Valarie Hodges, Louisiana Lawmaker, Retracts Support For Voucher Program Because Of Muslim School Inclusion

“Unfortunately it will not be limited to the Founders’ religion... We need to insure [sic] that it does not open the door to fund radical Islam schools. There are a thousand Muslim schools that have sprung up recently. I do not support using public funds for teaching Islam anywhere here in Louisiana," Hodges was quoted as saying in the Livingston Parish News.

Nope. That bill wasn't killed by Muslims. It passed. Snark backfire.

Okay. I'll take that. Kill no. But is it not the same opposition for the same reasons?

If it takes hatred of Muslims or Jews or Catholics to kill idiot bills like this... I'm all for it. Tax payer money should NEVER .. EVER... ****ING EVER... be used for religious indoctrination. PERIOD. So if you want to send your kids to Catholic school (like I went to) or Christian School or whatever... pay for it your own damn self.

But it is okay to use tax payer money to send kids to be indoctrinated in public schools?
