The promoters of the bill profess to wish that the state should care for its dependents in its own institutions.

That their profession is utterly dishonest and only a mask for anti-Catholic prejudices is seen from the fact that the bill still allows state aid to all private institutions except those conducted under church control.  

Any private institution is all right except one that is built for conscience sake.

Thus our orphanages would be discriminated against because the children get religious instruction; a private money-making institution could get state aid because it failed to impart religious training, which is the foundation of character.

— Editorial in oppostion to bill that proposed a block to state aid for church orphanages, Feb. 1, 1917
