||America is beset with vexing
problems that defy the best intentions of government. Despite federal
spending on social programs, 12 million children live in poverty,
schools are failing, and urban neighborhoods languish. President Bush
wants the government to fund the churches and their "armies of compassion"
to operate charities like food pantries, homeless shelters, and prison
ministries. However, the Constitution implores us to keep church and
state separate, and many warn the president's plan will dilute religion
and threaten individual rights. Reporter Anthony Brooks examines the
issue in a three-part documentary.
