Four government regulations completed on Monday and a half-dozen more in the works will provide federal money for religion-oriented programs run by people President Bush (news - web sites) has dubbed America's "neighborhood healers."

Cabinet members met with the president at the White House to discuss ways agencies are eliminating barriers that have kept "faith-based" groups from obtaining federal grants to help people in need.

While the idea of creating federally funded agencies to help people is a good one, I'd like to see this with a little less "God." Honestly.

I'd also like to see: any Muslim groups? Jewish groups? Buddhist groups? Shito? Hindu? Pagan? Wiccan? New-Age? They can help people too, right?

Just curious.
