Church stance on prison is wrong

Published 2:52 pm Tuesday, April 24, 2007

Dear Natchez, I knew people would heat up on the prison issue, but to pull the Lord into this, is crazy.

I don’t think we’ll go to hell because we want a for-profit prison.

And what is so wrong with a prison or any other business being for profit? The only way I and 300 more like me, can put money in the bishop’s, or anyone else’s plates, is for us to make a profit.
