Newsweek had an excellent article that pointed out some serious flaws with how this country handles Christianity.

How much more money is going to be spent censoring pornography vs. committing to a poverty program that isn’t totally horked?
Personally, I’m against spending any federal dollars on rebuilding New Orleans. Here are some reasons why:
1. Spending money on rebuilding only encourages people to build their houses in a flood zone again.
2. The federal government is going to spend about 200 billion, at last count. That is 400,000 dollars for every family in New Orleans. Why so much?
3. We could easily absorb these families into the rest of the cities in the U.S., because the U.S. economy is producing about 200,000 new jobs every month.
4. Another hurricane WILL hit N.O. within the next 20 or 30 years. Maybe it will be as early as 5 years, or perhaps next month…no one knows.
