1st Amendment...

Another case where the Supreme Court thinks that the 1st Amendment is referring to freedom from religion as opposed to the archaic freedom of religion. Ban on funding religious study upheld, where the court ruled against a student receiving a state sponsored scholarship solely because his chosen major was pastoral ministries. In his dissent, Justice Scalia wrote, "Let there be no doubt: This case is about discrimination against a religious minority."
