No challenges on money to religious charities

I ran into another article for everyone to read. In this one "The Supreme Court ruled Monday that ordinary taxpayers cannot challenge a White House initiative that helps religious charities get a share of federal money".
In the US a citizen has the right to challenge government programs that promote religion. I won't go into the subject of religious organizations getting government money (that a whole other post), but I would like to point out that we no longer, effectively, have the right to challenge the White House on the dispersement of funds going to religious organizations - the First Amendment be damned.
