Gambling as a cancer

Many states have turned to lotteries.  They are appealing and they can be sold as ‘money for education’; but is this the way to raise money?

Catholics do not see gambling as a vice until excessive.  Protestants do, saying it promotes the idea of something for nothing:  ‘Lotteries are … symptoms of … selfishness… (they promote) vic­timization of the poor (and) … give sanction to (a) … wasteful lifes­tyle …’ said the Ohio Council of Churches.
