Lib: Why are we funding churches in the first place?
Neocon: I agree. It's stupid to fund churches in this way.
We aren't "funding churches."
We are funding ngo's that are run by 'the church.'
Schools, soup kitchens, hospitals, allll kinds of faith based ngo's are supposed to spend that money on specific items with NO RELIGIOUS STRINGS ATTACHED AND NO RELIGIOUS BASED HIRING DISCRIMINATION.
This is exactly why the Catholic CHurch is being taken to task. They get government funding, hire non-catholic employees, then tell the employees that they must toe the catholic line. That's a federal bozo no-no.
If you want the taxpayer dollars, you need to observe separation of church/state in the disposal of those dollars.
