A Far-Right Powerhouse You Haven't Heard Of

We all know about the Christian Coalition, the Family Research Council and Focus on the Family. Thanks to David Kirkpatrick at The New York Times, we now know a little more about the Council for National Policy(CNP), a secretive group of the country's most powerful Religious Right leaders and their allies. (The organization met in New York City last week.)

Appeals Court Strikes Coercive Prayer At Public Schools

The federal courts continue to issue rulings against officially sponsored prayers in the public schools.

Earlier this week, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, whose jurisdiction covers the Dakotas, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri and Arkansas, concluded that prayers held at mandatory public school staff meetings violate the First Amendment principle of church-state separation.

'Faith-Based' Programs Proliferate in Prisons

A new front has opened in the move toward "faith-based" prisons.

The "faith-based" initiative has attracted the attention and support of corrections officials in a number of states, including Florida, Texas, Kansas and Iowa. Now Georgia is joining the list.

Georgia newspapers reported yesterday that faith-based dormitories have been set up in six state prisons with plans to add the special units to all of the state's prisons.

T.D. Jakes Wary Of 'Faith-Based' Funding

Bishop T.D. Jakes, a prominent Dallas pastor and author, has voiced serious concerns about President George W. Bush's much-touted "faith-based" initiative.

Agapepress reported Aug. 18 that Jakes, pastor of Potter's House Church, has declared that churches accepting federal funds should set up separate entities to carry out publicly funded social services.

Pat's Pique: Robertson v. AU's Feisty Ferrets

TV preacher Pat Robertson simply can't help himself. When given the opportunity to discuss any issue involving the separation of church and state, he inevitably lobs falsehoods and personal attacks at his opponents. Instead of reasoned debate, Pat would rather assail the other side with ad hominem attacks and outright lies.

That's just what he did yesterday on his "700 Club" broadcast.
