    Alabama Earns Money of Violating the Boundary of Church and State

    The State of Alabama financially benefits from advertisements on some of their state pages. In particular the Secretary of State site posts a rather large advertising window. On the day I looked at the site, a "Christian Mingle" ad was posted (see attached).

    It is beyond perplexing that the government will try to earn advertising revenue through users supporting a particular religion. It is a repugnant display of encroachment of state on church, as the state makes money on a particular religion.

    Lets assume the state has an equal representation policy. (I doubt this as I reloaded the page 12 times and did not get a none christian religion banner).

    How can the state in good conscience promote a single religion and financially benefit from it.
