a new White House office for faith-based programs and neighborhood partnerships, building upon the initiatives started by the Bush administration to administer social servicesThe following quote illustrates just how big a big government liberal Obama really is.
"the change that Americans are looking for will not come from government alone,” Mr. Obama said. “There is a force for good greater than government.”Obama says this, but at the same time apparently believes that even a force "greater than the government" can't get by without taxpayer money.
Whatever happened to religious organizations providing social services supported by their own funds? The government already spends an ungodly -- pun intended -- amount of money on a wide range of social services. The Bush administration decided it would be a good idea to funnel more money through religious groups. Instead of putting a stop to this nonsense, which raises various church/state issues, Obama is actually going to expand on Bush's bad idea. I guess this is more change we can believe in.
