LYING WITH STATISTICS, PART 874....Back in February I wrote about Chuck Colson's Prison Fellowship Ministries. I was critical of using public money to convert prisoners to Christianity, but I also admitted that "Colson seems to do genuinely good work."

It looks like I spoke too soon. Today Mark Kleiman takes a look at the record and says their success rate is completely bogus.

So not only are various state governments subsidizing religious indoctrination for prisoners, and not only does it not work, but they're lying and claiming that it does. Sheesh.
