"It's not about left or right: it's about upholding the Constitution. If churches accept federal funds, it's deeply inappropriate for them to discriminate on the basis of religion in their hiring. It's unconstitutional for federal money to support programs that only benefit those who profess a particular faith."

-- People for the American Way president Kathryn Kolbert commenting on Obama's White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships
