County mulls faith-based prisonFaith devoid of reason is a fool’s prison … so lets make it physical. Talk about a captive audience.

“SAN ANGELO, Texas — Tom Green County commissioners gave extra preparation time Saturday to a group proposing a faith-based prison in San Angelo. … Corrections Concepts was the only group to step forward when the county requested proposals for the 623-inmate prison. A management contract has not been voted on. The company’s new chief executive Forrest Watson said the group needs time to reorganize. Supporters say it could influence prisoners’ lives through religion, and create jobs. Opponents question the economic benefit and point to safety and water use concerns.” – NEWS8
