Did you know that President Obama's Stimulus bill contains a provision toxic to Christianity?
NEWS BRIEF: "Stimulus Bill to ban religious worship", World Net Daily, February 6, 2009 (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=88178) (please read this article and view videos) "President Obama's proposed economic stimulus plan makes a deliberate – and unconstitutional – attempt to censor religious speech and worship on school campuses across the nation, according to a lawyer who argued related cases before the U.S. Supreme Court 20 years ago and won them all. 'This isn't like a convenient oversight. This is intentional. This legislation pokes its finger in the eyes of people who hold religious beliefs', Jay Sekulow, chief of the American Center for Law and Justice, told WND today."
What, exactly, does this economic plan contain which would provoke this kind of accusation?
"The problem in the proposed stimulus bill comes from a provision that states: 'PROHIBITED USES OF FUNDS. - No funds awarded under this section may be used for - (C) 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'."
What does this wording mean? How can it impact Christian activities?
"DeMint warned organizations such as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Campus Crusade for Christ, Catholic Student Ministries, Hillel and other religious groups would face new bans on access to public facilities that would not apply to other organizations. 'This is a direct attack on students of faith, and I'm outraged Democrats are using an economic stimulus bill to promote discrimination', DeMint said. 'Democrats should be ashamed of themselves for siding with the ACLU over millions of students of faith'."
Once again, we are gaining insight into the inner heart of hearts of President Obama. He is going to prove to be very antagonistic to Fundamental Christianity.
