BUSH SAYS FAITH HAS HELPED L-A HEAL FROM 1992 RIOTS

President Bush is praising faith-based and community groups for helping Los Angeles heal from 1992 race riots.

In a meeting with leaders of Operation Hope and the First A-M-E Church, Bush echoed Martin Luther King's observation that while God is on the side of justice and reconciliation, "God isn't gonna do it all by himself."

The president said government should help fund religious charities without muzzling the faith that makes them effective.

And Bush said that as "a humble sinner who sought redemption," he's had personal experience with the power of faith.
