'Faith-Based' Scam:
Religion As State-Run Prostitution

by Anton Chaitkin

This is the opening of an introduction to the dossier being prepared by EIR, on the currently escalating corruption of both churches and politics by the so-called ``Faith-Based Initiative" policy.

On Jan. 3, Democratic Presidential pre-candidate Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. denounced the efforts to legalize a so-called "Faith-Based Initiative." He stated: "I have been investigating the development of the Faith-Based Initiative now hitting Congress, and what I see shaping up in the United States, under President George Bush and [Attorney General] John Ashcroft, is a move to turn religion into a form of state-run prostitution." He said: "This measure must be defeated now."

LaRouche presented his associates with a detailed assessment, on which he will be reporting much more in the coming days. In the meantime, he asked that a special message be sent to Jesse Jackson to inform him of this evaluation of the proposed law as, in fact, creating a system of government-run, faith-based virtual prostitution.

Thus far, the chief coordinator of outreach for the initiative has been the same notorious Republican Party-linked Rev. Sun Myung Moon, who played a key role in soliciting African-American constituencies to help candidate Bush's cause, against Vice President Al Gore, in the 2000 Presidential campaign.
