New York Times Letters on Church, State and the Prisoners

Here is one:

““Religion for Captive Audiences, With Taxpayers Footing the Bill” (“In God’s Name” series, front page, Dec. 10) reports that prisons are offering benefits to those who undergo intensive religious education.

This blatant and offensive display of religious proliferation deserves intense scrutiny not only by the judicial system but also by any American who believes that all people have the right to equal benefits, regardless of religious beliefs.

Religious affiliation is no basis for increased government-financed benefits. Ben Wiessmann

Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y.”

Read them all.
