Prison Break

The American Civil Liberties Union, continuing its long history of freeing from prison the wrongfully incarcerated, is trying to bust God out of the big house.

In what does not appear to be a parody, the Washington Post reports this morning:
The American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia says the use of public funds to pay such organizations as Good News, an evangelical Christian group headquartered in Richmond, threatens the constitutional separation of church and state. The ACLU has called for three jails in the state to end similar contracts with another Christian jail ministry, the Southeastern Correctional Ministry, and last month it wrote to 25 jail administrators asking for information about their contracts with Southeastern, Good News and other organizations that provide religious services.
Do we make this stuff up? We do not. Fortunately, the eagle-eyed G&S staffer assigned to sift through the Post was not drinking milk when she came upon this story, else unpleasantness might have ensued.
