On April 11, 2003 The New York Times published an editorial stating that "Dr. Paige insists that he is a strict observer of the separation of church and state. But too many in the administration seem more interested in fostering a divisive competition between church and state at taxpayers' expense through proposals to bolster, with public subsidies, religion's role in prisons, housing construction and other sensitive areas. Routine statements of belief in pluralism sound hollow coming from public servants who make a habit of wearing a particular faith on their sleeves."
