What Is Success?
In the beginning, there were many who believed in these faith‐based policies — not as symbolic actions to alter the norm of church‐state separation, but as serious social policy offering help to the poor. Since this help has not materialized, some of the most vocal supporters of the initiatives have become its most vocal critics. These original supporters are people who, like many liaisons, believed the president's speeches and thought that money would be provided to help the poor. They did not want the initiatives to become what they have become: a symbolic policy that is really about creating political allies and support while simultaneously giving religion an institutionalized voice in government.
