Faith leaders gathered on Capitol Hill Tuesday to talk about how to keep the moral drumbeat alive in the health care debate.
Christian, Jewish, and Muslim leaders all say they are not endorsing any particular legislation, but they are working to promote quality affordable health care for all Americans.
The leaders called it part of their moral commitment.
"We are convinced that every human being is an infinitely valued child of God and therefore care for them is care for what God has created," Rev. Dr. Michael Kinnamon, general secretary of the National Council on Churches, said.
Kinnamon said it is a central article of faith.
"Which is why Christian churches and other religious communities were responsible for establishing in so many of the hospitals and other places of healing in this country over the years," he added.
Faith leaders met with both lawmakers and members of the Obama Administration.
