Those lovely folks in the White House just want to make sure the churches get their fair share of the government dole-outs. Isn't that nice.
NOT. Churches have a tendancy to discriminate against gays, non-believers and anyone else that doesn't tow the "God" line. People shouldn't have to listen to a friggin mini-sermon or be told that their going to hell if they don't change their ways in order to get aid after a natural disaster..or any type of disaster for that matter. I define a disaster as anything that screws up your life in a NY minute..like Katrina, earthquakes, a little old lady plows into your house in her 1989 Cadillac or fires.
Seems the churches have been bitching about not getting a piece of the action..aka.. federal funds handed out to groups like the Red Cross to assist victims after Katrina.
I just love this...there is a bastion of "faith" in the WH..its called..White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. I shat you not sportsfans..there is such an office in our WH.
This is so NOT right. Well, technically it IS a right-wing type of thing..but its wrong. What the hell happened to the separation of church and state? The Shrub signed the executive order demanding the Office of Homeland Security create this program/center. This kind of program already exists..yes sir it surely does..it exists in the following departments: Justice, Education, Labor, and Health and Human Services. Those departments are already running centers for this Faith-based horseshit. Their job is develop pilot programs, conduct outreach and provide technical assistance to the groups. Ummmmmm...with our tax dollars?
Bet your sweet ass sportsfans.
The Washington Post as an article regarding this waste of our tax dollars..the link is here.
