Moral Contradictions

Credit where it's due...

I must commend Sir Mohler for getting it right: speaking out against FEMA's plan to reimburse churches and faith-based organizations for their hurricane aid.

This is a horrible precedent that distorts Christian charity and wrongfully entangles churches and the government. With the tax-funded reimbursement will inevitably come government intrusion and all the rest. Christians should give the aid out of love and concern, without expectation of reimbursement. The reimbursement plan threatens to turn the Christian agencies into extensions of state action -- mere service agencies functioning on behalf of the government.

I wonder what Dr. Richard Land thinks...
