I don't want my tax money going toward indoctrinating kids (et al.) against me. Story here. I'm glad the ACLU is going after this outfit.

ACLU Files Suit Against Publicly Funded Anti-Gay Religious Group

A lawsuit was filed Thursday to strip federal funding from Kentucky Baptist Homes for Children (KBHC), a public childcare institution that allegedly indoctrinates children and discriminates against LGBT people in their hiring practices.

“We strongly believe that any group taking public funds should not discriminate in hiring or proselytize,” said Joe Conn, press contact for Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. “Kentucky Baptist Homes takes buckets of public funds, yet they still try to indoctrinate the children in their care.” . . .
