I am going to guess that this notion that Obama will support religious charities ability to hire and fire, based on faith, is false. It better be. I know New York isn't up for grabs, but I can't, in good conscience, support a candidate who would take that sort of step. Your basically talking about state-sponsored discrimination, no? This qualification doesn't help one bit:

He also only supports letting religious institutions hire and fire based on faith in the non-taxypayer funded portions of their activities, said a senior adviser to the campaign, who spoke on condition of anonymity to more freely describe the new policy.

I'm already uneasy about expanding faith-based charities, precisely because of crap like this.

UPDATE: The Obama camp claims AP has the story wrong, and even after ammending, they say it's still wrong.
