What is he up to?

Why has US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales launched a new anti-religious discrimination campaign, called the First Freedom Project and why did he choose to announce it at a Southern Baptist Convention? He also plans to establish a Religious Freedom Task Force, charged to "review policies and religious discrimination cases". Is religious discrimination such a significant problem in the (undoubtedly small) mind of Mr. Gonzales that he has elected to set off on this initiative even though he has admitted that "he doesn't know how much the program will cost". It is reassuring to know that there are bags of excess money lying about in the District of Columbia, isn't it?
