Subject: 4th Street Forum/Nov 18 @ noon/THE POOR AMONG US: BOOTSTRAPS, CHARITY, GOVERNMENT

Do we want government out of charity? If churches receive government money, donít we run the risk of no longer having separation of church and state? Will the church pulpit turn into the bully pulpit?

MODERATOR: Jack Murtaugh
