For someone who complains about namecalling, it sure seems like that's all you ever do here. God forbid anyone ever get to discuss a subject without you censoring the discussion by making sure that it is bothsided exactly according to your biases.

Poor working class Catholics fled cultural and economic segregation to build communities for themselves in America, faced persecution and discrimination from those already here and slowly built communities and political power, all anchored to the church. Can’t imagine why they would fight to protect it.
Why do you always have to insert your identity politics into every discussion? Those people can fight to protect their religious identity just fine using their own money. No one is stopping that. But if they want the public to pay for their kids' schooling, they can be like the rest of us peons and send their kids to public school.

The need to project; a debilitating affliction many of his kind share I'm afraid. What always makes me laugh is when the side who gave up on policy and decided to go with identity politics, decries the left as engaging in identity politics. To them though, identity politics = laws that don't benefit christian white people. Alt facts from alt Americans.

Getting others to pay for your kids religious indoctrination - funny stuff coming from those who get frothy about bootstraps and socialism.

Catholic schools grew in prominence largely in working class neighborhoods where the public school systems were failing, amongst other reasons.

I am inserting an opinion into this discussion. I apologize profusely for not telling you what you want to hear. I didn’t go to Catholic school btw and identify as agnostic.

Catholic schools are in wealthy neighborhoods too. As always, your discussion is just blatantly passive-aggressively dishonest. Case in point: you didn't tell me anything I didn't want to hear, or hadn't heard before, you're just trying suppress my opinion that private schools shouldn't get public money. I don't care if they're religious or not.

How am I suppressing your opinion?

With you, yes. Bye cheesy.
Make sure your dictionary defines 5 out of 9 as a few.

Your attempt to hand wave away the fact that the judicial activism by conservatives has created a majority sympathetic to Christianity is pretty telling.

See, Christian's in this country are heavily persecuted. They've only had the run of the place for most of our history. So persecuted
