Skip to comments.The Godless Stimulus: Bans Religious Practice in Stimulus-Renovated College and University Buildings

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof unless your institution of higher learning is getting part of the massive (nearly $900-billion and counting) Obama/Reid/Pelosi stimulus proposal.
Both versions of the bill, the House version (H.R. 1) that passed on Jan. 28 by a 244-188 margin, without a single Republican vote, and the Senate version (S. 336), which will probably be voted on in the next few days include language that would prohibit 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
Such language is regrettable and could leave some institutions of higher learning susceptible to a legal action by organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) according to a spokesman from South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMints office.

And the leftist attack on religion continues on ad nauseum. In these uncertain and dangerous times we need religion more than ever, instead we get the government squashing it more than ever. This is why I wonder about the survival of America, previously so very blessed by God.
My gosh. This has been an amazing 2 weeks. Terrorist loving AG, porn loving DAG, tax cheats for cabinet appointees. Absolutely economy busting “stimulus” bill.
I am beginning to believe bo is far stupider than I thought. And I thought he was really stupid to start!!
Does he even know how to read????? Or does he just not care to know any of those little details about bills and appointees???
Gadzooks! This would also prohibit installation of Muslim foot-washing basins! The horrors!
From within, guys, from within
You are one of very, very precious few who sees that paradox.
What they write into these bills is idiotic. Don’t they think we people will read them?
If the “stimulus” bill is anything like this, then Christian colleges should pull out of the federal and state financial aid programs and offer their own financial aid programs.
Throw in Abortion, closing GITMO, giving his first foreign interview to a terrorist newspaper, and having a racist "minister" at his inauguration - and we get a feel of the nightmare we are involved with.
Michael Smerconish, an egomaniac liberal (who actually fancies himself a "Moderate" Republican) is screaming into the microphone on his talk show "Will you people just give the guy a chance!"
I did Michael - and Obama is a disgrace.
Now go French kiss your buddy Chrissy Matthews again, scream at your staff, and mention one of your crappy books again 2,547 times on the air.
I have a new approach to people like him that I previously did not... I tell them straight out to f--- off, and so far, they just go away and bother someone else. Of course, it helps if you are a big, ugly cowboy...
I don't even try to argue with them. Let them be hoisted on their own petard.
