Every time I’m in the checkout lane at Schnucks on Union I look at the board on the wall that lists the groups participating in the scrip program. Number one is Snowden School, which I think is a good thing. But some of the groups that follow it are troubling. Among them is the First Congregational Church which claims to house ACORN; the MidSouth Peace and Justice Center; which promotes left wing causes; the Dorothy Day Hospitality House whose national organization backs immigration rights rallies and advances Catholic social teaching including pacifism; and another group that provides special advocates for Hispanic (immigration?) clients.
I wonder if groups identified with the political right, such as the NRA or pro life groups would be included in this mix.
Somehow, I doubt it.
