Faith Under Siege

By Linda Chavez - October 1, 2005 - The Washington Times
Extremists at the grandiosely named Americans United for Separation of Church and State are at it again. The group, best known for trying to drive religion from the public square, now wants to make sure no faith-based organizations are reimbursed for rescuing and caring for thousands of victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Great article. The work these Christians did will stand for a long time as a symbol of how to help the needy. With the local and state governments dawdling, and FEMA not set up as a first responder, for many of the victims Christian charity is what helped them make it through a tough time. The charities did not do it to be reimbursed but their ability to continue to help will be aided by a fair recognition of what they did and a fair dispersal of the funds. These funds should not go exclusively to secular and god hating groups like "Americans United for Separation of Church and State".
