This concerns me, as the SCOTUS said that the american taxpayer cannot even challenge this whole process in the Supreme Court.... which sounds bizarre..a couple of issues come to mind: 1. Under the No Child Left Behind, after 5 years or so of underperforming schools then the feds can make the choice to put the schools out to bid to a private contractor, consider some cities who through not real fault of their own will have their jobs put out to some whack job religious folks. 2. During Katrina the churches raised thousands of dollars from their parishoners, then they could bill the gov't for the services and goods rendered. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19414473/ WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court on Monday barred ordinary taxpayers from challenging a White House initiative helping religious charities get a share of federal money. The 5-4 decision dealt with a suit by a group of atheists and agnostics against eight Bush administration officials including the head of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. The taxpayers' group, the Freedom From Religion Foundation Inc., objected to government conferences in which administration officials encourage religious charities to apply for federal grants.
