Reform or gut the faith based initiative

This petition had 166 supporters

The sane and civil libertarians were outraged at President George W. Bush's faith based initiative, which allows religious organizations to receive federal support even when they discriminate in their personnel practices and proselytize their workers.  Although President Obama promised to reform this discriminatory, and probably unconstitutional, program, he has not yet done so to the extent he could have.  I urge the president and Congress to either change the faith based initiative to prevent proselytizing and discrimination, or abolish it altogether; now.
