The House is scheduled to vote today on a bill that would allow religious groups that run federally funded job training and literacy programs to hire and fire employees based on their religious beliefs. The $4 billion Workforce Investment Act, the country's main job training legislation, is the latest battleground in President Bush's effort to channel more government funds to religious charities without forcing them to change their policies and practices.
Bush needs to get a clue. Government establishment of religion is right out. Not permitted. Unconstitutional. Comprendre?
Hire and fire however you want... when you're not getting federal funds for your little charity.
