Link: Critics push Obama to change faith-based hiring rules

Quote :
A group of clergy and lawmakers is trying to overturn a nearly decade-old policy that allows faith-based organizations that receive federal funds to hire and fire employees on the basis of religion.

It's a FAITH-based organization - of course the hiring criteria should deal with a person's FAITH. If you are not a person of faith, you are not properly equipped to the job required of you in a faith-based org. I can't believe there was a need for Bush to push through such a policy. Either you meet the job qualifications or you don't...in a faith-based org, your faith would be vital to the job. This should never have been an issue in the first place.

A Scenario which would occur OFTEN: Customer/client who is hurting over their circumstances comes to faith-based org for whatever service offered, want's/needs to talk about their situation to the worker and asks worker to please pray with them. If you are not equipped to handle this, you have no business working there.

Another scenario: A person of no faith, who works for a faith-based org, regularly behaves in a way that is legal but contrary to the teachings of this faith-based org. This damages the org's reputation, no longer trusted to be what it claims to be, and damages the org's ability to effectively provide whatever service offered at this faith-based org.

If you have a problem with faith-based orgs receiving government funding, argue THAT, but forcing a faith-based org to hire people of no faith or a differing faith makes no logical sense whatsoever.

Dare I say this is the first time something from the government was logical? affraid
And you nailed it Joy. We all know how difficult it is to even talk about religion in public, much less have a civil discussion. Should one be of the non-believer type and has someone ask for prayer, the last thing they need is to be told that::
1. God doesn't exist.
2. You need psychiatric help.
3. You should pray to Buddha, Allah, Thor, Oden, Satan, etc....they're all the same.

or
You just a crybaby, get over it. Rolling Eyes

if you're looking to get a job in marketing, the company has the right to know if you've got a background in marketing stronger than shopping skills.
if you're looking to get a job at a place where faith is the basis, they have the right to hire or fire based on your belief.

it's really pretty simple.

a christian church looking to start a misson program wouldn't hire a rabbi as their missonary.
a jehovah's witness group wouldn't hire a catholic priest to run their PR department.
the salvation army isn't go to hire an athiest as their song leader on sundays.

the whole thing is just silly.

i can't even pretend to argue on this one, even to play devils advocate.
