We Now Fund Discrimination?

Craig at Reverent and Free has written about an amendment to the Headstart Funding Bill which explicitly allows Faith-Based Headstart providers to discriminate in their hiring based on religion. The White House supports the amendment, stating that groups receiving federal dollars should not have to "forfeit their religious hiring autonomy."

Religious organizations who do not want to abide by federal anti-discrimination standards should not be vying for federal dollars. Period. Such organizations should get their funding from the offering plate, not from my FICA withholding.

Government should not be in the business of education in the first place.

Being that they are, very little action they take in that realm will be right or proper or of any benefit to any one.
