Obama cash discriminates against religion

Conduct unbecoming of stimulus

I love it when people say Fox News is a biased network. As if weighted reporting -- not within the reporting like, say, Campbell Brown, but weighted in covering actual news that isn't being reported elsewhere -- is a bad thing.

Fox is the only secular network reporting on one particularly dastardly slice of pork within Obama's stimulus package, a rider that bans any institution of learning from its piece of the pie if it so much as allows floorspace for religious activities.
According to the bill, which the Democratic-controlled House passed despite unanimous Republican opposition, funds are prohibited from being used for the "modernization, renovation, or repair" of facilities that allow "sectarian instruction, religious worship or a school or department of divinity."
That would include everything from the U.S. Naval Academy to the University of Notre Dame to religious studies departments at state colleges. (Looks, though, like they're still cool with $20 million to reseed the National Mall lawn obliterated by Barry's inauguration day disciples...who heard a few official government-sponsored prayers that day, as I recall.)
"President Obama's version of faith-based initiatives is to remove the faith from initiative," said Staver, who believes Obama has "a completely different view on faith" from what he said during his presidential campaign."
Different from the Constitution, too, but who's counting? And come on... They were just campaign promises anyway.

Keep digging, y'all. We just might find Jimmy Hoffa buried in this pile o' Shinola.
