Conservatives on the Supreme Court seemed ready Wednesday to extend a line of recent rulings favoring religious interests, and they were critical of a Maine tuition program that does not allow public funds to go to schools that promote religious instruction.

The case involves an unusual program in a small state that affects only a few thousand students. But it could have greater implications as the more conservative court relaxes the constitutional line between church and state.
