Obama creates faith-based office with wide mission - Yahoo! News
jesus fucking christ. When do we get to stop supporting dogma junkies with collective taxes? Faith based programs are worthless. Pandering to a bunch of dogma junkies doesn't solve anything when bush did it and won't solve anything now.
Didn't I mention this before he got elected ... too many times actually. As I said, Obama will do this, and ... surprise ... he did.
Yep, one of the reasons I had trouble voting for Obama.
On the plus side, I understand from one of yesterday's threads that he's declared a war on prayer.
I know, it's freaky.
The man is bumbling like a Keystone Cop...
It's like the special ed kids taking control of the school bus
I saw and see him still as just another religious nut trying to find a way to force their own ideologies ... he just has a better vocabulary than the last one. (No, not Jr.)
I hope it works out well.
Faith based programs have a lower success rate than privately run programs in most areas, in some they are even, and a few they are actually better. But using government money on them will be a huge waste. Yes, many programs in Seattle are faith-based, but only one has a success rate worth spending money on (thankfully our wealthy agree) because the people who run it do not use their religious ideals while running it, and many of them are not even of the same religion. The only reason it's considered faith-based is because it was started and gets a majority of it's funding from a church.
Yea, faith based organizations do terrible work. They ought to be made illegal. We really ought to get rid of them all. While we're at it, we should probably outlaw religion completely. We all know how this would make for a better world.
I'm just curious; how many atheist organizations contribute to the need of the poor and uneducated in comparison to those that are faith based? I'm trying to think of all the great atheist organizations that were there after Hurricane Katrina helping out as much as they could.
