House Republicans OK Christian-Only Hiring With Our Tax Dollars

-- by Dave Johnson

House OKs Faith As Head Start Hiring Issue,

The House voted Thursday to let Head Start centers consider religion when hiring workers, overshadowing its moves to strengthen the preschool program's academics and finances.

The Republican-led House approved a bill that lets churches and other faith-based preschool centers hire only people who share their religion, yet still receive federal tax dollars.

No Jews need apply.

I have also tied this into the Philadelphia Catholic Priest scandal and Rome's scapegoating of gays, plus a "trackback" to "Rapture" Rick Santorum in the comments.
