Progressive Christians Write Congress about Budget

The Center for American Progress has posted a letter to congress that was signed by dozens of progressive religious leaders advising congress that we view the budget as a "moral document."

In other words, budgets reflect priorities and priorities reflect our nation's moral values. It is time the leaders of our government stop giving lip service to moral values and start putting our money where their mouth is.
We also give notice that:

When the budget is released, we will assess its provisions concerning health care, education, housing, the environment, foreign policy, national security and other issues. If the budget falls short in these areas, we will work to transform it into a document that reflects America's best moral values and who we are as children of God.
