Taxpayer AIDS Money Funding the Right

-- by Dave Johnson

Religious Groups Get Chunk of AIDS Money,

President Bush's $15 billion effort to fight AIDS has handed out nearly one-quarter of its grants to religious groups, and officials are aggressively pursuing new church partners that often emphasize disease prevention through abstinence and fidelity over condom use.

Award recipients include a Christian relief organization famous for its televised appeals to feed hungry children, a well-known Catholic charity and a group run by the son of evangelist Billy Graham, according to the State Department.

Billy Graham's son is Franklin, known for saying this:
"The God of Islam is not the same God of the Christian or the Judeo-Christian faith. It is a different God, and I believe a very evil and a very wicked religion."
The other day I wrote about Pat Robertson receiving millions in funding from the government. This is just one more example of how The Party is converting the government into a Republican campaign financing system.

Giving all this money to faith-based organizations has got to be unconstitutional. Not that it's gonna matter with Alito on the court as of tomorrow.
