Where were these religious schools and their lawsuits when the separation of church and state was established, the gay equalities movement, the denial of the right to preach the gospel in public places, the taking away of prayer and learning of the Ten Commandants in public schools? Where were they?

Now they want to complain about the Affordable Care Act when it comes to contraceptives for women and their religious freedom rights not to support that right for women.

Jesus told the church to render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and take your case to the elders instead of the secular court system.

These schools must show they have a sincere belief in Christian tenets to have standing. The only belief they show is collecting the offering every Sunday, which by the way is not the seventh day of the week; Saturday is.

I say woe unto you hypocrites.
