Bush team shoveling cash over to religious groups for Katrina relief

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

So what the hell happened to seperation of church and state? That was generous of the religious groups to help offer food and shelter after Katrina but why should taxpayers be giving their money to these religious groups? This is yet another attempt by the failed Bush team to win back support from their wingnut supporters who are probably also many of the same people who have traditionally complained about the size of the federal government and taxes.

"Volunteer labor is just that: volunteer," said the Rev. Robert E. Reccord, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's North American Mission Board. "We would never ask the government to pay for it."

Becker said he and his staff at the Red Cross also urged FEMA to allow reimbursement of religious groups.
I donated to the Red Cross after 9/11 but have since struck them from my list and this only confirms my disgust with that organization. They don't know how to spend money wisely, their ethics are questionable and now they're encouraging federal taxpayer handouts to religious groups, so go to hell.
"The good news is that this work is being done now, but I don't think a lot of people realize that a lot of these organizations are actively working to obtain federal funds. That's a strange definition of charity," he said.
