Progressive Christians Arrested at Capitol

Associated Baptist Press reports that more than 100 progressive Christian leaders were arrested at the nation's capitol Wednesday. They were protesting budget cuts to services for the poor.

Kudos to those arrested for challenging the unethical priorities and immoral values that are being reflected in the budget of the most prosperous nation in the history of the world.

Lawmakers increasingly think they can dump the poor, the sick and the disabled at the doorstep of the church or synangogue or mosque or temple and walk away.

Houses of worship do not have the resources to provide the physical and material necessities for those that American society has discarded and abandoned in their hour of need.
