Silver Ring Thing loses federal funds

Via Majikthise, the Washingtion Post explains that Silver Ring Thing may have a religious agenda:
In filings with the Internal Revenue Service, the organization describes its mission as "evangelistic ministry" with an emphasis on "evangelistic crusade planning."
Plus programs like this fail to reduce pregnancy or STD transmission, and may lead children to choose riskier sexual behavior, like unprotected anal and oral sex.

But failing your way to the top is the Bush administration way.
