Why does he suggest this? Because it would be very easy for churches to do this given the fact that taxpayers monies can be used to pay for tuition through the Opportunity Scholarship Program. There would be a built-in source of revenue for these church schools.
That is a great plan, at least over the short term.
However, over the long term, you can expect that the socialists will at some point regain all the levers of power in the State of North Carolina. Why is that significant?
Think about what has happened during recent years. With the LGBTQ juggernaut, Christians became overtly persecuted. With Covid-19, we were prohibited from engaging in group worship. And with the Biden Administration, Christians were silenced and arrested at school board meetings and abortion clinics.
Once the socialists regain power in North Carolina, they will tell these church-related schools receiving state funds what they can teach and what they cannot teach. There is no question in my mind that will happen given their mindset and their worldview and their proclivities. And because these schools will be utterly dependent on taxpayer money, many will feel forced to comply.
I’m not sure Currin’s plan is the best in the long run.
