From God's Wire Service
On Tuesday, the City Council voted 13-1 to fund Central Dallas Ministries' rehab of a downtown building in which it intends to house low-income and homeless residents. Only council member Mitchell Rasansky voted against the project, which was no surprise; the guy was intensely vocal about the subject at a council meeting two weeks ago, to the head-shaking chagrin of his colleagues. But the $23 million project is a divisive thing even among the faithful and God-fearing: Here's a pretty good piece on the subject from the Associated Baptist Press that clearly defines the issues at at hand without damning either side. Wouldn't expect it any other way. --Robert Wilonsky
