ACLU sues to stop church donations
NEW ORLEANS — The American Civil Liberties Union filed suit in federal court here Monday (Aug. 13) to stop Louisiana from making taxpayer-financed donations to two churches.

The gifts targeted in the case — $100,000 to the Stonewall Baptist Church in Bossier City and $20,000 to Shreveport Christian Church — are among 14 appropriations that individual state lawmakers requested for churches in the new state budget signed into law last month by Gov. Kathleen Blanco.

Charging that earmarking church-related grants in the state budget is unconstitutional and that the purposes of the grants are only vaguely described, the ACLU in late June asked Blanco to veto them all, warning the dispute could end up in court otherwise. ...

Well if the state supported ALL churches they would be twice as broke as they already are.

They are already funding enough churches of humanism (school system & secular collages) with taxpayer dollars. the ACLU is just moving to rat out the compition and get more funds for ITS churches.

As a citizen of North Carolina, it is none of my or the federal governments business what the good folks in Louisiana do with their tax funds.

It's funny. I bet those funds will be used to build a fancy bell tower, finance a building expansion, or do something equally wasteful. Meanwhile, babies are murdered and fatherless children (and husbandless widows) go to bed hungry. So much for "religion my father accepts".

Yep, even a broken clock is right instantaneously twice a day. Following that analogy, the ACLU is more like a clock that registers military time. That way, they're only right once a day!

It shows that the ACLU on rare occasions can serve a useful purpose. I would be ticked off as a taxpayer if my money goes for that sort of thing, hey wait a minute I am! Nebraska doles out money to private religious colleges in this state for various things.
