Faith-Based Programs

Prior to the creation of "charitable chioce" in the 1990s and the faith-based initiatives of the Bush Administration, the constitutional rights of taxpayers and social service recipients were protected because entities receiving federal financial assistance had to abide by employment non-discrimination laws and constitutional religious liberty protections.
