Reader Craig has to file a health expense claim to get reimbursed from his Flexible Spending Account (FSA). But when he was looking at the list of things that qualify as expenses, he was surprised to see a particular item on the list (PDF).
Craig was puzzled by this:
So prayer is regarded by our government as a legitimate form of healthcare? And paying someone to pray is a legitimate healthcare expense!? But only if they are Christian prayers?
How on earth is this legal?
I have no answer here.
Maybe someone can shed some light on this.
(By the way, that FSA list linked to above is not Craig’s, but it resembles the list he is talking about.)
