Freudenthal Defends Funding
Cheyenne, Wy – Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal says he has no problem with the state funding a private religious organization. The Governor was responding to allegations that the state is improperly giving money to a group called Faith Initiatives of Wyoming. That organization in turn provides money to community and faith based organizations. Some have questioned whether it is constitutional for the state to fund a religious organization. Freudenthal says the constitution clearly says that the state can provide money if it gets something in return.
Freudenthal says the only thing they can't do is directly provide money for a church for religious activities.
