Obama Signs Order Creating Faith-Based Office

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama has signed an order to
establish a White House office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood
Partnerships.
The office is broader than one in the administration of former
President George W. Bush which just dealt with faith-based
initiatives.
Before signing the order in the Oval Office, Obama told a prayer
breakfast it would show not favoritism to any religious group and
would adhere to the strict separation of church and state.
Obama said even though faith too often has been used "as a tool
to divide us from one another," there is no religion in the world
that is based on hatred.
