New Leader of the Christian Coalition Steps Down

Rev. Joel C. Hunter took the job with a plan to expand the group beyond fighting gays and abortion. When the rest of the leadership was met with a desire to fight poverty, Rev. Hunter was told that such a thing "won't appeal to their base".

How about that. Christians that can't be convinced to do God's work. Maybe the base needs to read more about their saviour.

This is the very thing that bothers me about the evangelical wing of the church transcendent. It makes me sit back and want to say with T.S. Eliot,

"The cycles of Heaven in twenty centuries
Bring us farther from GOD and nearer to the Dust."
