Many programs exist that are not faith-based that received funding prior to President Bush’s faith-based initiative.  Many believe that such programs receive less funding or have less access to more funding as they do not fit the requirements to receive funding under the faith-based initiative.  Given the proposition that there is no evidence that faith-based treatment programs are any more or any less effective in reducing crime than are secular treatment programs, should the initiative and office developed under the Bush Administration be dispensed and funds distributed among secular and faith-based grant offices?  Or should the initiative remain as it provides common ground of treatment between conservatives and liberals?  Additionally, determine if students have a preference for the type of faith that is funded (e.g., Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, etc).  What are the reasons they may have preferences? Address religious biases as needed.
