WE ARE THE EIGHTIES: Wilson

WE ARE THE EIGHTIES: Wilson Goode praises President Bush. Err, that is, the ex-Philadelphia Mayor (infamous in the mid-’80s for his role in the MOVE fire) praises George W. Bush’s faith-based initiative:

“What the president has proposed is that faith-based programs have access to funding, that is happening in a way that has never happened before,” Goode told CNSNews.com.

“I think [Bush] has done a good job in leading, I think that he has done a good job in getting the issue out in front of the people. We all are better off because of that,” Goode added.

Goode took part in a panel discussion following Tuesday’s screening of the PBS documentary, God and the Inner City, which was funded by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life and Manifold Productions, Inc.

Interesting.
