Tim Rutherford, Senior Citizens Inc. vice president, said some of his staff recently visited the center and noticed people praying shortly before lunch was served. Rutherford said his company provides meals like baked chicken, steak tips and rice and salads at a cost of about $6 a plate. Seniors taking the meals pay 55 cents and federal money foots the rest of the bill, Rutherford said.
And so Senior Citizens, Inc. says they cannot provide such meals to low income seniors if those rapscallions insist upon praying before their meals, because it violates the separation of church and state.
Okay, not only is that concept somewhat insane, given the fact that once the meal is given to the person, what they do with it is their own damn business, but what the hell even moved the staff of Senior Citizens, Inc. to report the activity?
