It still irks me that we have "faith-based initiatives" at all, but at least from the way this article portrays what's going on here I don't have a problem with it. Let's call them "community partnerships" or something instead though. There's no reason an atheist group couldn't, shouldn't be doing the same thing.
Agreed. I really appreciate that they specifically stated that they're not there to promote any religion. It sounds like they're doing good things and hopefully are successful in not proselytizing.
