The problem isn't the amendment. It sounds like the amendment makes sense. How can you have a faith based school that doesn't teach bigotry and homophobia? The problem is funding religious teachings with public funds. Religions are rife with discriminatory, bigoted stupidity. If you gut that then what is left simply won't be acceptable to most religious people. No...the problem isn't any amendment, it's the over-all problem of allowing a government to support religious instruction that should be targeted. Once you say "you can teach from a Christian or Muslim or Satanic viewpoint" then you have to accept the fact that the instruction is going to be stupid-based.
