Obama on Faith-Based Initiatives

By Diana Hsieh

The Christian Science Monitor recently published an informative article on what Obama is and is not likely to do to change the Bush Administration's "faith-based initiatives": Obama's likely likely to retool Bush's faith-based initiative. The whole program ought to be scrapped, but that's not what is going to happen. Instead, the merger of church and state will continue, albeit likely with some greater restrictions on the churches -- for now.
