 Increase in faith-based prison programs comes under scrutiny

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071012/ap_on_fe_st/god_behind_bars

"Evidence that they reduce recidivism is inconclusive, and skeptics question whether the prevailing evangelical tone of the units discriminates against inmates who don't share their conservative Christian outlook.

However, evidence is strong that violence and trouble-making drop sharply in these programs, and they often are the only vibrant rehabilitation option at a time when taxpayer-funded alternatives have been cut back."

I think prison ministry's are a strong testimony to the world.
