Bible college tax money | opinion : Bible college tax money
It's hard to imagine a more clear violation of the separation of church and state than the $1 million the federal government has given the fledgling Alaska Christian College. The 3-year-old institution is a divinity school, founded to produce ministers for the Evangelical Covenant Church. There is no way government can give the college money without impermissibly advancing a religious mission.
This was not a token amount of support delivered through arguably secular channels. The $1 million of federal money supplied half the school's budget. Government aid amounted to an astounding $20,000 per student.

See big honkin' rant posted earlier. Or the short version. Like the founding fathers said, "The government should stay the fuck out of religion."
