Obama Creates Faith-Based Office

WASHINGTON — 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.
