Max Blumenthal has written an interesting blog called "There is Wonder Working Power in Bribery."
It is absolutely unconscionable for our government to undermine the credibility of houses of prayer and worship with its faith-based bribery. When everyone concludes that the church has been turned into a "den of thieves," ministers will no longer have the moral authority to confront injustices in our society.
Nicolo Machiavelli and Friedrich Nietzsche must be smiling in their graves. It looks like their neo-conservative heirs will inherit the earth.
