Quote of the Day

"It's an important concept for our fellow citizens to understand, that no one in need will ever be forced to choose a faith-based provider. That's an important concept for people to understand. What that means is if you're the Methodist church and you sponsor an alcohol treatment center, they can't say only Methodists, only Methodists who drink too much can come to our program. "All Drunks Are Welcome" is what the sign ought to say."

-- President George W. Bush, March 1, 2005

What they don't confess to is that often times they use their charitable facilities in order to win converts to their particular religion. That's fine and dandy if they are supported by their congregations. But the government, in my opinion, should not be in the business of "winning converts." There are plenty of secular organizations that government funds can and should support. Those "drunks" should have the option for sobriety without a daily dose of Jesus.
