    Obama creates faith-based office with wide mission

    Obama creates faith-based office with wide mission - Boston.com

    Obama's order expanded and redefined a similar office established by President George W. Bush. Focused primarily on faith-based initiatives, the Bush office sparked constitutional questions about whether the separation of church and state would be preserved, particularly if groups receiving tax dollars sought to hire on the basis of religion.

    Groups that were critical of the Bush faith-based office -- including the American Civil Liberties Union, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and People For the American Way -- issued statements Thursday expressing disappointment in the Obama version. All said that by failing to repeal Bush policies, the White House will allow participating religious groups to continue discrimination in hiring.
    Do you know what Mr president Obama? I really won't care if religious people prefer to hire individuals who share their same faith as long as if doing so it will facilitate their approaches helping others.

    But, I strongly think that the tax dollars must go to help religious groups and the needed who are US citizens or legal residents in US only.

    So, I think that every religious group that is receiving government funds must sign in a contract stipulating that they won't use the tax money to help illegal immigrants.

    And the simple reason for my concern is that the tax money must go only to the ones who rightly deserve it, and that people who belong to other countries must apply for help to their correspondent embassies and consulates because such is the responsibility of those countries.

    Using your own words Mr president Obama, this is not a game, and you must be sure that no corruption of any kind may be approved by you, because helping the illegal immigrants is to promote their continued wrong doing.

    Of course, religious groups not receiving government help can help to whoever they want as long as the private donates allow them to do so, but this can't happen by any reason with the religious groups using the tax payers money

    Correct me if I am wrong... but didn't GWB get blasted for doing this?

    And yet, the Obamanistas are silent.

    Hmm.

    Seriously. It's not like you even had to go into the link and read. It was posted for you. Further confirming what we all knew. You're Stinger's slightly less retarded clone.

    I forgot -- you don't lack the intellectual capacity necessary to figure out that by using the term "Obamanistas" I was referring to posters here at DP.

    Perhaps you could now point to said criticism from said Obamanistas.

    Oh wait so that's your standard? Here :

    It's wrong when Bush did it. And bad now that Obama is doing.

    Do you plan on retracting? Or playing like you didn't just get your ass handed to you?
