Bush steps up efforts to unite church and state

It just keeps getting scarier and scarier. Speaking at a White House conference on faith-based and community initiatives yesterday, Bush renewed his commitment to promoting taxpayer-funded social welfare through religious groups. He highlighted legislation, heading to the House floor today, that would allow religious charities that receive federal funds to hire and fire employees based on their religious beliefs. Bush warned that if Congress does not follow his lead, he will try to circumvent lawmakers by using executive powers.

What would Jesus do? Probably weep.
