We are finding out more and more about the fabled “stimu-less” package, and the groaning continues.
Big wigs getting more office decorating money. Insurance agents and bankers need more… well, more insurance and banking funds. And whatever else equals mismanagement these days.
Well, thanks to WOW News’ Faith & Reason (shout out to the lovely Cathy Lynn Grossman), we learn the bill may be a lot of things for a lot of folk, but for religious schools across this land of ours – the bill is iconoclastic. Great.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee was in a huff Tuesday, calling the stimulus bill “anti-religious,” according to Politico‘s Andy Barr. The former presidential candidate, and Southern Baptist preacher, was unhappy, Barr said, “because both the House and Senate versions would ban higher education funds in the bill from being used on a school or department of divinity.”
So, does the ACLU have anything to do with this? Seeing how it’s their mission to tell this country public education is sacrosanct but talking about Jesus is a sin.
I guess a school whose mission it is to exalt God and education is a bad thing?
And most of those shriveled-up fossils in Congress who get to pay for private and parochial school (because they have the cash under the mattress) for their kids who no predilictions about this bill just want to kill that kind of schooling for the rest of us.
Well, the kind that aren’t engulfed with cypress trees and iron-rod fences.
It’s just not fair that this country is fledgling and everyone needs help, but those tools on Capitol Hill are playing duck-duck-goose to decide who is worthy enough to get it?
Odd how the party-in-charge largely considered to the impious crowd are the ones boisterous enough to shout out the only people who think this is a ska-ruuu job of the highest order.
Yep, for a guy boasting change, this sure seems like business as usual. Pity, folk had high “hopes” for you.
