George W. Bush on Faith-Based Charities in Budget Address
乔治∙W∙布什在预算讲演中以宗教为根基的慈善

Government should welcome these groups to apply for funds, not discriminate against them. Government cannot be replaced by charities or volunteers. Government should not fund religious activities. But our Nation should support the good works of these good people who are helping their neighbors in need.
我们必须支持并鼓励慈善组织、以宗教为基础的组织和社区组织,提供面对面的帮助与爱。活跃在全美国的每一个邻里中的这些群体,要向无家可归、吸毒成瘾和家庭暴力作战,为我们的孩子提供热汤饭、贴心关护和避风港。政府应当欢迎这些群体申请资金,对它们一视同仁。慈善或志愿者不能代替政府的工作。政府也不应当资助宗教活动。但是,我们国家应当支持这些好人行好事,让他们去帮助有需要的邻居。
