6/24/11 Update:  While Hisways has generated the methodology below for drafting an amendment, the FL legislature has submitted identical joint resolutions in both the 2010 and 2011 sessions for a Constitutional Amendment.  Here is a brief discussion from 2010: http://www.ccpcfl.net/articles/Guests/WebTech/2010ReligiousFreedomAct.html .  Here is the text for the 2011 joint resolutions HJR 1471 - Religious Freedom ACT and SJR 1218 .  This "amendment to Section 3 of Article I of the State Constitution is agreed to and shall be submitted to the electors of this state for approval or rejection at the next" General Election.  The new text might look like this:
"ARTICLE I
DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
SECTION 3. Religious freedom. - There shall be no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting or penalizing the free exercise thereof. Religious freedom shall not justify practices inconsistent with public morals, peace, or safety. Except to the extent required by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, neither the government nor any agent of the government may deny to any individual or entity the benefits of any program, funding, or other support on the basis of religious identity or belief. No revenue of the state or any political subdivision or agency thereof shall ever be taken from the public treasury directly or indirectly in aid of any church, sect, or religious denomination or in aid of any sectarian institution."
       This year's, Hisways USA, Parents' State of Education Message (PSOE 2006) is designed to further the development of the 2005 Parents-PLAVNIC-Resolution.htm [PL-Privately Licensed; AL-All Volunteer; N-Nondenominational; I-Independent of Secular Religion; Christian; ] Charter Public School  by slightly refining the legal basis for it.  Since the PLAVNIC school proposes to be a nondenominational Christian Charter Public School supported by the public treasury which is permitted by both  [] Thomas Jefferson's Religious Freedom Bill (Section I.: 5, 6. and Footnote 2 as edited) [] and [] Northwest Ordinance of 1787 [] ; it became necessary to address the prohibitions to public support that first became law by the Blaine Amendments.  These Amendments, circa 1875, occurred some 100 +/- years after Jefferson's Bill and after the Constitution; but, they are still, progressively and negatively, influencing Supreme Court decisions today. ( The rectangles with links "[] ... []" indicate that a new browser window will open to that page. )  [This page in PDF.]-
Although the Federal Blaine Amendment was never passed, The Supreme Court has increasingly overreached the application of the 37 individual states' Blaine Amendments to prevent public funding of all parents' choice for any alternatives: private or public!  Whereas the Blaine Amendment was aimed at prohibiting Catholic theology in the 'common schools', it has developed into an attack on the USA's default trinitarian.[ 1.]  religion.  Where the overwhelming majority of our Founding Fathers approved and expected public schools to teach (these "Five Fundamental Points"  of the USA's default Christian religion, specifically for ordering government education, culture and policy.
 1. There exists a Creator who made all things, and mankind should recognize and worship him.
 2. The Creator has revealed a moral code of behavior for happy living which distinguishes right from wrong.
 3. The Creator holds mankind responsible for the way they treat each other.
 4. All mankind live beyond this life.
 5. In the next life mankind are judged for their conduct in this one.

    The preferred solution would be to incorporate these nondenominational, Judeo-Christian values into public schools and give vouchers to all those opposed.
However, the Supreme Court with the aid of The Blaine Amendment has mandated a proselytizing Secular Religious monopoly and [] a total theological vacuum. >> (a prophesy from 1890.) []
For the children's faith of the USA's default religion to survive the assault of the public education monopoly, amending the Blaine Amendment is a necessity.  Don't let the secular school quench your child's spirit.
In The Becket Fund's summary of Newdow v. Carey (2010)  what is most gratifying about the 9th Circuit’s favorable 2010 decision is that it adopted the Becket Fund’s reasoning.  Specifically, the court agreed with the Becket Fund that the phrase “under God” affirms the Founding Father’s political philosophy and the foundational premise in the American tradition of law and rights, namely that “God granted certain inalienable rights to the people which the government cannot take away.”   So why doesn't the  "Five Fundamental Points"  above affirm 'the Founding Father’s political philosophy and the foundational premise in the American tradition of law and rights, namely that 'God granted certain inalienable rights to the people which the government cannot take away.' ?

The failure of state education is not only the 3 R's; but, culturally, i.e. religiously, it is failing to preserve those Christian principles and values that teach responsibility, accountability, righteousness, law and order and justice upon which our state and national, Constitutional perpetuity rests.  The fear of the Blaine Amendment proponents of an invading Catholic theological denominational coup d'état never materialized; but, the dissipation resulting from the Supreme Court's proselytizing the Secular Religion with the aid of the intolerant, discriminatory and biased Blaine Amendment is rampant, destructive and threatening.
     It is the opinion of this Parent that a repeal of the Blaine Amendment is necessary to assist legislators and the Supreme Court in interpreting and facilitating 'The People's' options for a state equivalent education under the founder's original intent, and spiritually conformable with the founders' predominant denominations of the USA's default religion.

except to parent(s) [of the USA's default religion] for education vouchers for purchasing only nondenominational, trinitarian k-12 schools.- [ Preferential treatment of the USA's default religion by government , over all other religions, is necessary to preserve our limited self-government ideals and constitutional republic structure.  Other religions cannot sustain principles such as: freedom for all religions, speech, the rule of law, truth, justice and "The American Way".]

Resulting Parental Choices In Education:

This edited Amendment text leads to the choice of three substantially different parental options for the child's publicly funded education.  All of these parental options are approximately in line with the state's interest in providing a free K-12 education.
1.)  The Secular Public School choice which is what public education is now.
2.)  The Trinitarian Parental School Voucher choice.
3.)  The nondenominational trinitarian Public School choice. [The Hisways USA Inc.'s PLAVNIC Christian Public School. The Petition , The Resolution .]

The Basis of the Church's Position for Editing the Blaine Amendment:

1.)  The Secular Public School proselytizes children into the secularist.[ 9.]. and nihilistic[ 11.] belief systems.
2.)  Parental Vouchers, i.e. taxpayer funded option.  It is in the church's interest to always be independent of both government funding and excessive regulations because socialism leads to religious corruption.  The parent is the intermediary between the government, its money and the trinitarian church school; such that:
a.)  The government's public funding, regulations and accountability for private education must terminate with and be the responsibility of the parents.  All illegalities with payments or performance are borne by the parents.  [Similar to: the GI Bill, individual medical savings accounts, 401k retirement accounts and education savings accounts etc..]
b.)  The trinitarian church school is free to receive applications and payments for educational services from parents and are accountable to those parents for their child's scholastic performance.
3.)  Public Schools, i.e. taxpayer funded option.   The nondenominational, trinitarian public school [ i.e. PLAVNIC Christian Charter PS ] must have a "Parents Private License" and a "Parents Council for Non denominationalism" to maintain denominational neutrality and protection from administrative, state and federal secular entanglements and oppression.
a.)  The All Volunteer religious parent and tax payer should know , approve of and opt-in their children in the nondenominational, trinitarian PLAVNIC Christian Charter PS's of the government with it's influence, preference or endorsement but totally without coercion.
b.)  The PLAVNIC Christian Charter PS has a fundamental goal of protecting a voluntary, nondenominational, trinitarian religious sector in the midst of the state's education monopoly.

The Compelling Basis for the State to Edit the Blaine Amendment:

1.)  Education of Florida's public children is a state right, and not even a federal privilege.
2.)  Compulsory school attendance or it's home or private school equivalent is a minimal state requirement for educating its young citizens.
3.)  Education of itself does not lead to Constitutional allegiance, loyalty or understanding. (Some education is tyrannical.)
4.)  The State has a compelling interest for educating it's young citizens; specifically, in the USA's default religion's nondenominational principles to insure the State's own future; and, not be dependent solely on: private citizens, churches, denominations, various Christian institutions or other private organizations to supply young citizens with an understanding of their unalienable, God given, liberties as embodied in our Constitution, and specifically the USA's default religious source of those values and principles.
5.)  It is not in the State's interest nor the communities interest nor "The People's" interest to provide educational funding to parents for education in non trinitarian philosophies or nihilistic religions which are opposed to the USA's default religion and which are opposed to those religious principles that form the basis for The Constitution's freedom of expression for all religions.
6.)  Preferential treatment of the USA's default religion (over all other religions) by government is absolutely necessary as the standard to preserve our personal liberties, cultural ideals and limited self-government structure as revealed in our foundation documents.
7.)  Our Founding Fathers expected education to include these "Five Fundamental Points" of the USA's default Christian religion, specifically for ordering government education, culture and policy.
 1. There exists a Creator who made all things, and mankind should recognize and worship him.
 2. The Creator has revealed a moral code of behavior for happy living which distinguishes right from wrong.
 3. The Creator holds mankind responsible for the way they treat each other.
 4. All mankind live beyond this life.
 5. In the next life mankind are judged for their conduct in this one.

    The preferred solution would be to incorporate these nondenominational, Judeo-Christian values into public schools and give vouchers to all those opposed.

Comments on the Judiciary's "Establishment of Religion":

1.)  The basis for editing the Blaine Amendment, also rests on this reasoning;  that the government's establishment clause which is debasement of The Christian Religion, i.e. the USA's default religion, is impossible unless it establishes, by legislative action, i.e. by law, a particular denomination!  Anything less is simply and harmlessly acknowledgment of the USA's default religion.
      For example and for the sake of argument let's say an activist court declares religious establishment; like, "The Christian Religion is the established religion of the USA."  What does this mean practically?  It doesn't mean anything because the court has not specified a denomination.  What Christian council in America represents all of Christianity?  None.  What Christian denomination in America represents all of Christianity?  None.  What Christian leader or denomination has been elevated or debased?  None.  Further, who would be outraged the most at this 'establishment'?  The Secularists and Nihilists who oppose everything Christian and all of the peoples liberties of the Constitution.  But, if the court were to name a Christian denomination, who would be outraged?  All of the other denominations of the USA's default religionQ.E.D.
      Maybe the legislature should make it an impeachable offense for the judiciary to rule or declare 'establishment'.
2.)  Further, limiting the government establishment of Christianity requires a legislative act of naming a particular denomination into law.  Or restated for the legislator who might like to codify a Florida definition for the "establishment of religion" so as to clarify it for the judiciary....

Government establishment of religion requires a law specifically naming a denomination .
Consequently:
1.)  A church's, denomination's or sect's incorporation of its members, state registration or institutional traditions or any expression of it's activities, symbols or rituals is not a "government establishment by law of a specific named: religion, denomination or sect".
2.)  A church's, denomination's or sect's name or designation in the title or body of a law suit before a court does not constitute government establishment by law of that name. 
3.)  Parental Vouchers, i.e. taxpayer funds to Parents for tuition at denominational, trinitarian, private education institutions does not constitute government establishment by law of a specifically named denomination.
4.)  Public Schools, i.e. taxpayer funding of nondenominational (for mass acceptance), trinitarian, public education institutions including: facilities, salaries, wages, curricula, textbooks, symbols, mottoes and other related civic or religious materials, activities and expenses does not constitute government establishment by law of a specifically named denomination.
