Contents
  • 1. The faith-based initiative and the controversy over religious staffing -- The charge of violating the separation of church and state -- The charge of government-funded discrimination -- 2. Religious staffing: Legislation and the Constitution -- A. Religious staffing and the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 -- The constitutionality of the Section 702(a) freedom -- The relevance of religious staffing to the provision of social services -- B. Religious staffing where federal funds are involved -- Is 702(a) forfeited when a faith-based organization receives government funds? -- Doesn't acceptance of government funds turn faith-based providers into "public" social-service agencies? -- Isn't the religious staffing freedom a religious "preference" in violation of the establishment clause? -- Doesn't the Dodge case prove that religious staffing is illegal for government-funded faith-based providers? -- Don't taxpayers have a right not to be forced to support faith-based organizations they consider objectionable? -- Doesn't religious staffing open the floodgates to employment discrimination more generally? -- Pregnancy and discrimination on the basis of sex or religion -- Homosexuality and discrimination on the basis of religion
  • 3. Religious staffing where a nondiscrimination clause is embedded in the federal program legislation -- Program-specific nondiscrimination clauses in federal legislations -- The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 -- 4. The religious staffing freedom where federal funds pass through state and local governments -- A. State and local "police power" legislation -- B. State and local procurement legislation -- Federal social-service funds subject to the safeguards of charitable choice -- Federal funds not subject to charitable choice safeguards
  • 5. Religious staffing: The policy justifications -- A. A faith-based organization's decision to employ staff who share its religious beliefs is not an act of shameful intolerance but a laudable and positive act of freedom -- B. The ability to choose staff who share a religious organization's beliefs is essential to that organization's retention of its core identity -- C. The religious staffing freedom undergirds, rather than undermines, a diverse and pluralistic society -- D. Just because a private-sector organization, including one that is faith-based, accepts some federal funds, it does not cease to exist as a separate entity and become a mere arm of the government -- E. Permitting faith-based organizations that receive social-service grants the freedom to staff on a religious basis is the only way to avoid viewpoint discrimination by the government -- F. Prohibiting government funding for faith-based social-service providers that staff on a religious basis will hurt the poor and needy -- G. Because government is now asking religious groups to provide more social services, it should reciprocate by respecting the integrity of these organizations -- H. Religious charities that staff on a religious basis are not trying to foist their religion on others, but ask only that others not impose alien values on them -- I. Denying the freedom of faith-based organizations to hire staff on the basis of religion would require drastic and widespread changes in current practice
  • 6. Recommendations and precautions -- A. For faith-based organizations -- B. For government officials -- Appendix 1: Selected resources -- Appendix 2: Key congressional and executive actions -- Appendix 3: Charitable choice provisions for the TANF program -- Appendix 4: Charitable choice regulations for the TANF program (excerpts) -- Appendix 5: Charitable choice regulations for SAMHSA programs (excerpts) -- Appendix 6: Executive order 13279, Equal protection of the laws -- Appendix 7: Department of Justice equal treatment regulations (excerpts) -- Appendix 8: White House policy statement on religious staffing -- Appendix 9: Ten affirmations on religious staffing
