WACO, Texas (AP) - The third director of President Bush's faith-based initiative has followed his predecessors into higher education.
Jay Hein, who headed the White House Office of Faith-Based and
Community Initiatives from August 2006 to this September, is joining Baylor University's Institute for Studies of Religion.
The office's first director, John DiIulio, is now a political science professor at the University of Pennsylvania.
His successor, Jim Towey (TOO'-ee), left to become president of Saint Vincent College.
Presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama both have
pledged to maintain federal support for religious charities. Obama,
however, has said groups that accept taxpayer funds should not be
allowed to hire only fellow believers.
