1. Bush's 'Affirmative Action' Plan For Funding Religion

Here is more on Bush's plan to allow only religious groups to compete for certain government grants, specifically disallowing any group that does not have a religious message to give along with whatever hand-out we're funding today.

2. Special Rights For Organized Religion

Along the same lines as the above dispatch, groups of the Organized Religion variety, specifically because they are religious groups (and for no other reason), are allowed to violate laws which individuals and groups who are not part of the Organized Religion game must obey -- or face moderate or severe penalties.

Today's example of this double-standard involves the Mormon Church, which is allowed to violate zoning laws because it is a religious group, laws which the rest of us must follow since we are not religious groups.

WHAT is going on, here?

Does ANY of this invite impeachment proceedings?
