Faith-based initiative in the courts

This NYT article is problematical, as Rick Garnett points out, but it does contain links to a veritable trove of documents in the InnerChange Freedom Initiative case, about which I wrote here. With all the amicus attention it’s attracting, it looks like it’s going to be one of the big cases next year.

In addition, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear this case, where the immediate issue is the standing of the Freedom From Religion Foundation to mount a sweeping legal challenge to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiative’s general activities promoting the Initiative.

This ought to keep commentators (like me) off the streets.

Update: Mollie at Get Religion likes the IFI story better than the others in the NYT series, though I think she’d change her mind if she began reading the appellate briefs.
