M any small businesses are failing and need government aid to survive. Didn't the first and only bailout include $660 billion to rescue small businesses while small businesses were teetering on the brink of bankruptcy? When did it become the role of the federal government to bail out churches, synagogues, religious schools, and religious organizations?"What happened to the money? Thanks to ProPublica, there is a link to a search engine to see where the money went. Billions went to religious organizations, private schools, & charter schools -- federal aid went to churches and synagogues representing a wide variety of sects. One of the largest grants--$5-10 million--went to Joyce Meyer Ministries. Is her ministry worthier and needier than hardware stores, restaurants, and other Main Street businesses? What happened to separation of church and state?"
