Community Service Redux

I can see Catalano's point (via Instapundit), but I think he glides past the issue of church involvement with community service. It really comes down to whether or not community service sponsored by religious institutions will be credited by the state. I don't expect any issues with Church youth groups staffing soup kitchens, but what about those same youth groups performing Handel's Messiah in a local park, or, to take it one step further, performing Be Thou My Vision in that park? The reaction on the right is largely driven by a fear that Christians and people of faith really aren't wanted in the state sponsored community.
