Policies designed to push money into religious organizations

President Donald Trump has issued a series of policies designed to push money into religious organizations. This came amid a White House declaration recognizing Jan.16 as Religious Freedom Day. A reversal of previous requirements that tightly restricted religious organizations receiving taxpayer money, almost a dozen federal agencies will roll out proposals meant to ease those restrictions.

No public school should have any sort of religious activities involved in its routine (except for a student-run religious group that is not recieving any funding from the school hosting it.) .

Hey I completely agree. Even if your not religious it is important to understand the values that have bought us in creating a civilised society with morals. So sure why not let them celebrate it with their own religious freedom holiday.

The USA continues to show that it's slowly turning into a theocracy.

So I'm going to ignore the whining in the other comments and give my take: Solipsism has been plaguing western society, and the United States is not exempt. Loneliness, unhappiness, broken families... people will go extended periods of time without having meaningful interactions with anyone. Years ago, civil society provided numerous different affiliations to bring people together for the betterment of not only the community, but also foster the individual's individual human needs. The one institution that somehow defies this trend is the church. Religious attendance is correlated nearly perfectly to happiness, satisfaction, and even the amount of social capital people have. Even if someone is generally irreligious, simply affiliating oneself with a church improves mental health, motivates, and encourages self-actualization. Even more, the system self-reinforces from religious teachings passing on the tradition, making it generally stable despite irreverence seemingly detracting. The church needs to be seen less as an isolated part of civil society and treated more as an integral part of it; It is all we have left! I'm not saying the government has any right to step into the ring itself (f.y.i. it doesn't and my libertarian sentiments about this are screaming), rather that as a whole we need to come together and realize the importance of the only backbone we have left to western civil society. Here be the flyover states, the evangelical working class, the irreverent church-attending middle class, all of whom do better than the lonely city doomers and leftist cat ladies. My opinions are shared by this well crafted video: https://youtu.be/BDcXN8fIs0c (Yes, it has its own sources)
