In order to keep up with all the bad news coming from the Obama camp, I would have to be a Stepford wife and have no need of sleep. Just when I think I am done for the day, something else comes out. This man is just intent on keeping me busy, I should have severe carpal tunnel syndrome any day now. Okay with my rant out of the way, let’s get down to business.
Obama is forbidding religious schools from receiving any stimulus money designated towards improving schools. According to a report by One News Now, “Specifically, the provision reads that stimulus funds may not be used for “modernization, renovation, or repair of facilities — (i) used for sectarian instruction, religious worship, or a school or department of divinity; or (ii) in which a substantial portion of the functions of the facilities are subsumed in a religious mission.” http://www.onenewsnow.com/Legal/Default.aspx?id=409082
So basically BYU, Patrick Henry and other religious colleges and universities can kiss that money good-bye. But considering BYU in Provo, Utah has been around since 1875 I don’t think Obama’s slap in the face is going to even faze them. Now, I am not aboard with stimulus anyway. However, it is not even about that, it is about Obama lying….again. During his campaign he talked about how important faith was in his life, how he was a follower of Jesus Christ and then the minute he gets into office he starts going on Arab tv “to reach out to Muslims” and let them know “the U.S. is not your enemy.” and now he wants to eliminate all financial help to faith based colleges and universities. When Bush was in office, faith based initiatives received more funding not less. So killing babies across the globe is fine but not receiving a religious education. Using your tax money to take down the Third World population, not a problem. Using your tax money to help those get an education that is not liberal indoctrination-not fine.
Just another reason why Obama is shaping up to be the worst president we have ever had. He has no integrity and has no intention of helping those who truly need his help most of all. But we shouldn’t be fighting to get the money anyway, because it comes with too great a price. Our freedom, our self respect and worshiping God the way we see fit are all too important to sell at any price.
