Christian Social Services: Taking Federal Funds to Replenish the Ranks of the Faithful

(This was originally part of a too-long “On the Road to Emmaeus” post, below. Its charts are valuable, and I’m basically splitting that post so the visuals are closer to the top of the page.)

(These are some the charts, figures, and stats on Bethany Christian Services; see last post. It should be viewed as one in a series of posts and is not stand-alone, except as an alert to the size and scope of federal funding of conservative evangelical organizations with documented “bad attitudes” towards women. As these same very well organized and networked organizations are focusing increasingly on adoption, and in our current political climate, I worry about both the safety and the values of the adopted infants, and what this says to our country’s own value system.)

For “chart” purposes, understand that a DUNS# is an identifier required for anyone doing business with government. An EIN#, however, relates to the IRS and tax status. The chart below comes from a search on NAMES (on the HHS database TAGGS), and doesn’t show EIN#s. I don’t believe one can produce a search RESULT showing EIN#s on this database, although you can search by them — at the elementary level only. Probably if they added this field as a results on their “Advanced Search” page, the game would be up on grants to fake corporations…
