Obama Reaches Out To Faith

CHICAGO -- Reaching out to evangelical voters, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is announcing plans to expand President Bush's program steering federal social service dollars to religious groups and -- in a move sure to cause controversy -- support some ability to hire and fire based on faith.

Obama was unveiling his approach to getting religious charities more involved in government anti-poverty programs during a tour and remarks Tuesday in Zanesville, Ohio, at Eastside Community Ministry, which provides food, clothes, youth ministry and other services.

"The challenges we face today ... are simply too big for government to solve alone," Obama was to say, according to a prepared text of his remarks obtained by The Associated Press. "We need all hands on deck." - WHDH

Now, just denounce your support of abortion!


  1. Neither candidate can win without some evangelical support. If one of them can snatch the majority of that demographic, they've got it.

  2. But the evangelicals are going to see his pro-abort/pro-gay record and be like hellz naw.

  3. Well, duh. It's a miracle he's leading in polls: http://www.electoral-vote.com/
