how did someone get the right to use funds from a municipal bond offering - the local taxpayers - to build something that is avowedly religious?
The private religion-affiliated (Christian Church Disciples of Christ) college in my area got the county to issue bonds to build their dorms a few years back, and we found that offensive. I oppose issuing gov't bonds to benefit a private entity, religious or not.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
