My prediction is that some Indiana lawmaker is about to have his or her Valarie Hodges moment.
Hodges, you might recall, is the Louisiana state legislator who supported Gov. Bobby Jindal's voucher plan until she found out vouchers might be used somewhere other than a Christian school.
"Hodges mistakenly assumed that 'religious' meant 'Christian,' reported the Livingston (La.) Parish News last month.
"I actually support funding for teaching the fundamentals of America's Founding Fathers' religion, which is Christianity, in public schools or private schools," the Republican lawmaker said. "I liked the idea of giving parents the option of sending their children to a public school or a Christian school," Hodges said.
Right. Lots of people feel that way, which is why I suspect some Indiana lawmaker is about to have a lesson in tolerance and religious pluralism.
If tax dollars support the religion they practice, many people will have no problem with it, but I suspect the prospect of those tax dollars supporting a Muslim, Hindu or Buddhist school will cast charter schools and vouchers in a whole new light for some.
