Religious Insanity in the US When my good friend CD first sent me this article, I did not beleive it. But, it's by the Washington Post, so...

Junior is offering federal grants exclusively to religious groups, a move that goes beyond his original plan to let those organizations compete with secular groups for government money.

Is it just me, or is this insane? There are good reasons for a government to discriminate against religious organizations (this little thing called seperation of Church and State). There are reasonable reasons to allow the two to compete equally to operate social programs. But preferential treatment? Of course, there is no media firestorm. Reporters in the US are brainddead.
