In February, the Biden administration celebrated the “first anniversary of the reestablishment of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.” Most Americans probably don’t even know such an office exists. George W. Bush had created it to give faith-based charities access to federal grants. But that’s clearly not Biden’s motivation for maintaining the office. In the case of Christian adoption and foster care agencies, Biden has blocked, not facilitated, access to federal money, which has resulted in a lawsuit against his administration.
For Biden, the office exists not to protect faith-based charities but to enlist them in his left-wing politics. The office’s supposed first-year accomplishments, according to his administration, include: pushing his vaccine mandates, fighting “systematic racism,” “strengthening pluralism,” supporting porous immigration policies, and advancing his climate change activism.
The office should be renamed the White House Office of Politicizing Faith-Based Charities. Its current work has nothing to do with religion per se. Biden’s use of the office would have brought a smile to the face of Saul Alinsky, the notorious community organizer who popularized the politicization of religion. An agnostic, Alinsky urged his disciples to exploit churches in their work, as they provide a “passport of morality,” reams of money, and organizational resources. In an interview with Playboy , Alinsky bragged about his easy manipulation of the Catholic Church in Chicago.
On all things COVID, the Biden administration has been openly Alinskyite, using churches to promote its decrees while denying religious exemptions to their members, a matter on which the administration continues to lose in court. Melissa Rogers, who heads up the White House Office of Faith-Based Charities and Neighborhood Partnerships, has written about the value of using churches as vaccine clinics: “Some Americans are far more comfortable getting their shot in a house of worship than in a […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
