[ed:  I welcome discussion on the report cited below, as well as the 
broader issues raised by it.  While the report does not focus 
specifically on faith-based organizing (the focus is social services), 
there may be some implications for community organizing.]

From: Michael Givel <mgivel at earthlink.net>

The Texas Freedom Network has issued a report on the five year 
track record of Faith Based Initiatives in Texas.  Before jumping 
into this form of community organizing, if you have not looked at 
this, you might want to read about and consider the possible pitfalls 
associated with mixing government funding with religion.
