Obama to expand faith-based initiative

At an event in Ohio, Barack Obama announced plans to expand Bush's program of steering federal social service dollars to religious groups. I have no problem with steering federal dollars to private programs that work. What I have a problem with is exempting those groups from oversight and discrimination laws. I have a big problem with spending my money to subsidize bigots who provide nothing of value.

My biggest problem with Obama since the very beginning has been his Lieberman-like pandering to moral bullies and willingness to be a scold toward his own side. I'll probably have a lot more to say about this after he becomes president.
