Ask President Obama to bring his faith-based office in line with the Constitution
On March 9, 2010 the White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships presented President Obama with recommendations that will bring the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships in line with the Constitution’s guarantees of both religious freedom and the separation of religion and government. Now the decision of whether or not to implement these recommendations is in President Obama’s hands.
The recommendations in this comprehensive report were developed over the past year by a number of experts, including Interfaith Alliance President Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy. If implemented, these recommendations will:
• Strengthen the constitutional foundations of the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships
• Protect the religious freedom rights of social service beneficiaries and prevent proselytizing
• Increase transparency and accountability
• Ensure that government money does not flow directly to houses of worship
Please urge President Obama to bring his faith-based office in line with the Constitution and implement the Reform of the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships Recommendations through an Executive Order today!
