Your tax dollars at work for Jesus

Alaska Christian College, affiliated with the Evangelical Covenant Christian Church, has a student body of thirty-seven. It is not accredited and it does not confer degrees. It does grant certificates in biblical studies and in some cases, in biblical and general studies. And during the past two years, Alaska Christian College has received more than $1 million--from Congress.

The ACLU is investigating this matter, and the Freedom From Religion Foundation has filed suit against the Department of Education, with the goal of getting the money rescinded.

Congress may allocate money to religious schools, but only if the money is used for secular purposes. The FFRF claims that Alaska Christian College has no secular purposes.
