Last week, we reported that Jim Pawlenty's attempt to establish a faith-based initiative office in Minnesota was being met with some skepticism, but Michigan's seemed to be doing fine. At least one editorial board begs to differ:
You can't blame Jennifer Granholm for pursuing new ideas. With the state budget seemingly always bleeding red ink, the governor is right to look for cost-effective ways to meet the needs of Michigan residents. Unfortunately, her new faith-based initiative isn't an idea that could work.


The governor and the president rightly appreciate the valuable help religious groups provide to those in need. The truth is these programs seem to do best on their own terms.

This is one area where government would be wise to butt out.

Correct us if we're wrong, but Port Huron is not exactly a hotbed of liberalism, is it?
