Senate Advocates Of Bush 'faith-based' Plan Say Action May Be Delayed Up To A Year

Bush Team 'Staggering To Their Corner After A Tough Opening Round,' Says Americans United

Supporters of President Bush's "faith-based" initiative in the U.S. Senate are prepared to delay legislative action for up to a year, the latest sign of serious trouble for the controversial plan to give government funding to religion.

Americans United is a religious liberty watchdog group based in Washington, D.C. Founded in 1947, the organization educates Americans about the importance of church-state separation in safeguarding religious freedom.
