GOP looks to charities, religious groups to help cure social ills

TOPEKA, Kansas (CNN) -- The Republican Party laid out its vision Saturday for tackling the old challenges of "how America opens its heart and arms to those less fortunate," but one critic labeled the vision a "misguided disaster."

In the GOP radio address, Gov. Bill Graves of Kansas made it clear that the promise of compassionate conservatism that helped carry George W. Bush to victory will be borne, in large part, by private charities and faith-based organizations.

"Government can't perfect an imperfect society," Graves said in an address taped in Topeka on Friday. "It can't, and shouldn't, be the answer to every problem."

Graves noted that Bush had already begun the effort, meeting Wednesday with 30 ministers and other religious leaders "on expanding the role of charities and churches in federal welfare programs."
