It really depends what "freedom of religion" means. If the school is unsubsidized by the government, and does not discriminate on ethnic grounds, then a case for freedom of religion can be made. To accept this analysis in the case of the Emmanuel parents, we have to take at face value that the discrimination was clearly religious and not ethic. I don't know if we can safely make that assumption if the Sephardic children and parents were willing to fulfill the same curriculum. Moreover, don't you find it interesting that in chastising the secular Supreme Court, no one is thanking the secular government for providing universal health care that allowed one of the Emmanuel parents who suffered a miscarriage to be treated at the local hospital? It seems that secular is ok in some instances but not others. What's that about?
