Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Of God and Government

Here is the President’s latest Executive Order aimed at reducing the government’s hostility toward faith-based organizations providing public services in conjunction with the government and its money.

The purpose . . . will be to coordinate agency efforts to eliminate regulatory, contracting, and other programmatic obstacles to the participa-tion of faith-based and other community organizations in the provision of social and community services.

This is nothing less than another attempt to promote religious ideology by the administration. Religious organizations should be prohibited from using taxpayers’ money to promote their religion, and the term "faith-based" should be completely stricken from that order. If a "faith-based" community organization wishes to provide services without the promotion of their faith, then they should have equal access to funding for that program. However, any promotion of religion should be prohibited in providing those services. Promoting religion is NOT the business of our system of government, and religious freedom is threatened by these actions.
