Obama Transition Website Posts Faith-Based Docs. Three of them

The posts represent a tiny fraction of the meetings they've had with religious groups.

After I posted my grievances concerning the Obama transition team's failure to make most records of meetings with and policy recommendations from religious groups available on its website, as it promised to do, the team E-mailed me three faith-related documents that are available at http:// change.gov:

1. A list of attendees from a December transition meeting with Jewish leaders

2. A document titled "Policy Priorities and Recommendations for the Obama-Biden Administration" that was submitted to the transition team by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America

3. An Interfaith Platform on Humane Immigration Reform from a coalition of liberal religious groups

That's a start. But it represents a tiny fraction of the meetings the transition team has had with denominational and faith-based advocacy leaders and the documents it's received from them. I'll continue to post the more interesting documents that come across my transom.
