Rob Boston of Americans United has an excellent article on the recent ruling in Iowa against public funding of InnerChange Freedom Initiative, a program of Chuck Colson’s Prison Fellowship Ministries. The state of Iowa has funded that program to the tune of $1.5 million over the last few years. There’s nothing wrong with having prison ministries, of course, but funding them with public tax money is a problem. An even bigger problem is that the state allowed unequal treatment of those who participated in the program, giving them benefits unavailable to others. Most shocking, Boston reports, is that those who participated in InnerChange were given access to classes that allowed for early parole much sooner than they were available to non-participants. A Federal judge recently declared the program unconstitutional, and rightly so.
