… even worse, Obama’s plan says that when a faith-based organization takes federal dollars, it would lose its ability to preserve its faith-based character through maintaining hiring standards consistent with its mission. It could be forced to hire an atheist. In other words, it would strike at the heart of the faith-based initiative.
When even the Christian Right dislikes what Obama’s doing, you know he’s onto something good.
While anyone can rightfully blast faith-based initiatives for existing in the first place, it doesn’t make much sense for atheist organizations to rip apart Obama for his plan — one which actually helps (at least a bit) in rebuilding the Wall of Separation between church and state within the confines of the faith-based initiatives plan.
