What role should churches play in welfare issues?
Asked at Hobby Lobby, 1801 W. 23rd St. on March 2, 2003
“I think churches should stay out of it. I’m all for separation of church and state.”
“I think it’s a great idea. People should help people whether through church or welfare. If we all lived by the Golden Rule, we’d all be a lot happier.”
“They should be right in the middle of that. That’s their duty, that’s their purpose, to take that role.”
“I think they should stay out of it. I think the church reaches out to the community in different ways already.”
