On Environment: How Would Jesus Vote?
Continued from previous page
Republicans reject all environmental regulation that would reduce toxic emissions, disregarding harm to the disempowered. Democrats say they support such rules, but often write watered down laws that don’t protect the underprivileged.
Jesus, a strong advocate for the poor, would not approve. He would expect Republicans to “Do unto others,” and Democrats to back their convictions with courage.
People of faith should care about and act to protect “the least of our brethren” as well as the Creator’s handiwork – in our churches, communities, and with our ballots.
That’s what Jesus would do.
