Jesus in Jail
Read the article here:
Missouri is about to become the sixth state to use evangelical christianity for prisoners re-entering society.
"The program gives prisoners practical life-skills — how to write a résumé, what to wear to an interview, how to pass a driving test — and a Christian-values-based foundation upon which they can rebuild their lives"
As far as their claims of success:
"A 2003 University of Pennsylvania study of the Texas InnerChange program found that only 8 percent of its graduates returned to prison. But critics point out the study did not count men who dropped out of the program."
Former senator and Attorney General John Ashcroft endorsed the program, not surprisingly.
There are no theists on operating tables.
