Buying Jesus' Forgiveness

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, we now have the federal government committing taxpayer dollars to repay Christian relief agencies and groups for their work in helping victims of Katrina. This is basically a faith-based payoff.

On the one hand, Bush shamelessly proclaims faith-based volunteerism is what will save this country, and on the other, he promises to subsidize all those "volunteers" with taxpayer money. It's just a bald-faced way of buying forgiveness from the Christian right for his failure to respond adequately to Katrina.
