We don't want to talk about no stinkin' poverty!! Us? Care about poverty?
The environment? Why should we care about what shape we are leaving this earth in?
That's the message from the "Christian" Coalition.
Rev. Joel Hunter of Florida was elected President of the Christian Coalition, and was prepared to assume that role this coming January.
However, he has declined the postion. Rev. Hunter says that he wanted to use his tenure as President of the Christian Coalition to focus on issues such as poverty and the environment.
However, the powers-that-be at the organization wanted to preclude him from expanding its agenda beyond opposition to gay marriage and abortion. Rev. Hunter said he was told "These issues (povery and the environment) are fine, but they're not our issues, that's not our base."
In other words, the "Christian" Coalition and it's "base" could care less about Matthew 25: 40: "And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." (KJV)
When it comes to issues of poverty, we don't have to wonder "what would Jesus do" because the Word already tells us. I guess the "Christian" Coalition hasn't received that memo yet.
