The Oregon legislature is still giving away money like it’s their own. Check out the following bill:

http://www.leg.state.or.us/09reg/measpdf/sb0800.dir/sb0871.intro.pdf

Since it is unconstitutional to give general fund money to religious organizations, they rewrote the bill to play a shell game. It overwhelmingly pass the Senate. Here’s the rewrite:

If this was going to a Christian church, the papers would be all over it. But now it’s silence.

The legislature is also pushing through what I call the Burqua bill to insure Muslims can force employers to submission.

I don't think the taxpayers of Oregon owe the Jewish Federation, or any other private organization religious or otherwise, a dime for whatever outlay they may wish to make for security. Shouldn't cost so much anyway. In the outfits I belong to if we think we need security we bring our guns.

Likewise I don't see a need for special laws imposing hardship on businesses to accommodate religious garb, though in most cases I don't believe it would. My office used to be in the same building as a trucking company's corporate office. They employed some Sikhs and members of other Eastern sects and a Muslim or two, both in the office and on the road, and what they wore didn't cause much concern to anyone or affect how they did their jobs. In some places it might though, and that's a judgment a business owner ought to have the right to make.
