Faith Based Initiatives Now Controlled By Homosexual Activist?


The so-called "faith based initiatives" were always a bad idea. They were exactly the kind of thing that the first amendment was written to stop- a church that becomes a hireling of the state rather than a check on the state's power as another institution which serves as an independent authority in the minds of the people.

I have always felt that way, but conservative churches thought it might be a good idea when it looked like the money was going to them. Now the Obama administration is appointing very different kind of men to run the "faith based initiatives" program. The CNS article notes that new appointee to the President's Faith Advisory Panel Harry Knox holds that the New Testament's teaching that homosexual behavior is unnatural and wrong--which is found in St. Paul's letter to the Romans--“is not true." "Knox has been a long-time gay activist focusing on the faith community. He previously worked for the New York-based Freedom to Marry group, for Georgia Equality and Equality Florida."
