So much for separation of church and state.

Why does taxpayer money that WE THE PEOPLE pay into, end up going to ANY tax exempt religious organization? Maybe everyone should just start a religion of their own and keep their tax dollars.

The Stabler Foundation is not government run and neither is the ministry involved. So separation of church/state is not involved.
My concern is why any agency helping out needy people would take a large grant and use it to plump and freshen their offices.

I agree with David! With the recession the way it is how dare they! And how many new people are they actually going to hire and for how long!

From what I understand on their website, the grant was used to purchase an existing building, which will be primarily used as storage for food donations to their food pantry.
