Faith-based farce


Jim Towey

Jim Towey spent more than four years as the Director of the Office of Faith-based and Community Initiatives under President George W. Bush. With controversy often surrounding the office, Towey was surprised when Barack Obama decided to keep it open after becoming president.

"I thought he deserved credit because I knew that the liberal flank of his party wanted it closed," said Towey during a recent return to Washington, D.C., from his current post as president of Ave Maria University in Florida.

Three years later Towey is appalled at the direction the office has taken under Obama. "I think it has become a faith-based farce," Towey said. "The office has become nothing but a political outreach shop that has led the charge to trample on the religious rights of faith-based organizations." ...

Barry of KY, "Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right." I wouldn't deny that the mainline and Romish churches have a strong interest in wealth. They go out of their way to protect it, e.g.,Hidden Wealth of the Catholic Church (Germany).ever since the day of Emperor Constantine, using or linking politicians to Christianity has been a very bad idea.

Neil, to remove any confusion I am associating Bush with Enron not with The Faith-Based Initiative. I do believe love of money is certainly part of Bush's faith however.
I believe the first article I referenced was from the Anti-Defamation League, it's a pity that a Christian has to use what is at least a semi-liberal Jewish organization to point out a very anti-Christian practice.
So, I really don't have too much else to complain about on the rest of your comments.
I don't think that the love of money was only a part of Bush's faith, I think it controls most of the denominations in America today!!!

No prize for figuring out that Bush's faith-based initiative is a very bad idea, though it is silly to connect it with Enron.

Note well, Obama didn't close the office as he should've, but is now using it for his agenda, which like Bush's, is Progressive social transformation. And 501(c)3 parachurch ministries, like the vast horde of deadbeats from corporations (e.g. GM, Solyndra, GE) down to paupers, want taxpayers' money to play with. Get rich by becoming a Beltway Bandit instead of producing useful goods & services.

No stinkin' wonder we're going broke.

This fellow should have been appalled to have had anything to do with the so-called, "Faith-Based Initiative," by G. "Enron" Bush. It was the evil idea from the very moment it was thought up, mainly as a political device to help, "Enron." The Faith-Based Initiative and ‘Charitable Choice’: Harmful to Religious Liberty and Civil Rights. The people who supported this idea, such as the Romish church, The Perils of Popery, naturally loved it. Christians will support a separation of Church and State How the Church Relates to the Kingdom and Rendering To Caesar---A Biblical Perspective On Government.

After 50 years Calvinists are finally crawling out from under their rock to discover a world undone by neo-antinomianism. Of course their instinct is to restrict these many new-found freedoms within their ranks. But besides teaching another gospel, the thing that most strikes terror in a Calvinist's heart is being labeled a legalist.

Thus instead of standing on their firm Reformation foundation, each watches as the antinomian riptide quickly erodes even the sand beneath his feet.

While conservatives worried about getting a president in the Oval Office during the 60s & 70s, liberals quietly and completely turned the culture on its head with its new love potion.

Most are so drunk with their love potion, we couldn't even care less about these faith-based initiatives.
