Churches get roped into the first lady’s obesity crusade.
Apr 11, 2011, Vol. 16, No. 29 • By MEGHAN CLYNE
If the Obamas really want to curb childhood obesity, perhaps they ought to use their platform to support some of the nonsectarian messages that faith-based institutions promote—taking responsibility for one’s own life and the lives of one’s children, keeping families intact—rather than trying to turn churches into sign-up centers for welfare programs and mouthpieces for the first lady’s organic food agenda.
