That Which You Do Unto the Least of My People

To quote the all-wise Cyndi Lauper, circa whatever decade that was, “I see your true colors shining through“:

The once-powerful Christian Coalition of America has suffered another setback.

The president-elect of the group has declined the job, saying the organization wouldn’t let him expand its agenda beyond opposing abortion and gay marriage.

The Rev. Joel Hunter, who was scheduled to take over the conservative group in January from Roberta Combs, said he had hoped to focus on issues such as poverty and the environment.

“These are issues that Jesus would want us to care about,” said Hunter, a senior pastor at Northland Church in Longwood, Fla.

Oh, sure, but who wants to go on and on about “feed the world” and “save the planet” when “shame and humiliate women” and “it’s Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve” do so much more for one’s false sense of superiority?

Feeding people in the name of God is all well and good, but oppressing them? That, my brothers and sisters in Christ, is the shit.

Word to your Mother Mary, yo.
