Over a half century ago, we gave prisons, welfare, and abused kids to government.  Then they turned into "systems" that were not well run, in spite of the myriad of studies that vie for air time and funding.  Yet over this same period of time, their charges have exploded in number. As conservatives, we're quick to criticize these systems; I'm the worst.  But as Christians and people of values...just how many prisoners do we visit (or hire)?  How many abused kids do we adopt?  Besides the holidays, how many...
