Thanks to Tengrain I have seen how the bullshittery will be passed around once again. This is complete and utter horse piss people. Religious groups have one thing on their minds..getting more chumps as cough..believers. From the fucking link:
Reaching out to religious voters, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is announcing plans to expand President Bush's program steering federal social service dollars to religious groups and — in a move sure to cause controversy — support some ability to hire and fire based on faith.
Obama was unveiling his approach to getting religious charities more involved in government anti-poverty programs during a tour and remarks Tuesday in Zanesville, Ohio, at Eastside Community Ministry, which provides food, clothes, youth ministry and other services.
Organized religion is bullshit. Its fucked up, its disgusting and its single purpose is to clean out your wallet while telling you that you will be going to hell soon if you don't buy into their bullshit.
Pander away you sumbitch. Faith-based funding is pure crap. Religious groups should not be government funded Gawd Damn it. The NYT tries to paint a rosy picture of this nonsense..I still ain't buying it. The federal government can't even keep track of the money it gives to contractors..how in the blue hell will it know if a religious group is adhering to the rules? They won't...
