Hatred of Christianity Produces Preference for Prison Recidivism

Everyone wants fewer criminals, right? And everyone wants prison to be a deterrent to crime, right? And everyone prefers released inmates to keep from returning to prison, right?


For liberals who so hate and fear the power of Christianity, anything that allows for its free expression must be vigorously opposed -- no matter the irrationality, the absurdity or the counter-productive effects such intolerance involves.

Here are a couple of stories highlighting the ridiculous trend of liberal bureaucrats fighting against the proven success of faith-based prison ministries. The first comes via the Telegraph (U.K.) and concerns the move against the program Inner Change in England's prisons and the second (printed in the Weekly Standard) deals with a case much closer to home, Iowa.
