We’ve had a win for the separation of church and state: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-06-20/high-court-upholds-chaplaincy-challenge/4081456
It makes no sense at all to have religious counselors in a public school. How can a chaplain of one religion effectively counsel children who may be of completely different faiths or beliefs? How is a chaplain of the homophobic brand of Christianity (or Islam for that matter) going to help out a teenager struggling with the troubles of homosexuality? How are they going to help a troubled atheist child without being tempted to tell them that they have to find god and pray and that’ll fix everything?
There should only be trained, professional, secular counselors in public schools.
It’s not a comprehensive victory though. As I understand it, the ruling was that the program could not be federally funded, not that the program couldn’t continue. So it might continue, if the individual states choose to fund it themselves, or if they find some other loophole for the funding.
