I’m deeply skeptical about Bush’s plan to fund “faith-based intiatives,” but this article linking it to Notre Dame’s ACE Program made me pause. I mean, I have friends who’re doing this Program (it sends graduates to teach in under-resourced Catholic schools) and I definitely think that the work they do is a good thing. If Bush could guarantee that there wouldn’t be any sort of bias in giving out the money… But I really don’t think that’s possible, do you? Do you really believe that if, say, a Wiccan group was running such a similar Program, that their chance of getting funding would be anywhere near the same as a Catholic group? No way, José.
