Credit where Credit is Due: Service Bill

As long as this isn’t also the “mandatory” service bill we’ve all been dreading–and the AP is conveniently leaving that out–this bill sounds pretty good, on the surface: expand AmeriCorps, and give education grants to various individuals for service work.

Of course, one could also point out that, if this bill does (as rumors have said) prohibit the service hours being applied to religious service, it is a way — like taxation itself — of diverting resources from Churches.
