Gospel Tracts Are Not Counterfeit

From the "Why are they wasting my tax dollars?" category:

Several years ago, Secret Service agents confiscated more than 8,000 million-dollar-bill gospel tracts produced by evangelist Ray Comfort, founder of Living Water Publications. The front of the tract has markings similar to paper currency with the words, "This bill is not legal tender." The back invites the recipient to answer the "million-dollar question: Will you go to Heaven?" Agents claimed the tracts violated counterfeiting law. But, two weeks ago, federal Judge Jorge Solis ruled that the U.S. department of Homeland Security violated the Fourth Amendment guarantee against unlawful search and seizure and ordered the return of the gospel tracts, ruling they were not counterfeit currency. [Liberty Counsel,]

And by the way - if you are leaving these tracts but no other tip, you should be throat punched.  You can quote me on that.  Christians do an enormous amount of damage to the cause of Christ because they are cheap and disrespectful at restaurants before and after church.  Tip GENEROUSLY (10% is NOT generous).  Be people of grace, even if the service is weak that day.
