Justices bar ordinary taxpayers from suing over White House faith-based programSupreme Court (AP) The Supreme Court has ruled that ordinary taxpayers can’t challenge a White House initiative that helps religious charities get a share of federal money.The 5-to-4 decision blocks a lawsuit by a group of atheists and agnostics against eight Bush administration officials, including the head of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.
This is a very steep slippery slope. The proponents are very short sighted as they will realize when the Nation of Islam or other radical sects start lining up to get their share of your taxes.
The reason some of the faith based programs are so successful is because they are independent of the government. Beware of any religion that does not want to be independent of the government.
