CWN.org - Christian leaders are calling on the incoming Obama administration to put poor people first.
Christian Churches Together, a religious group aimed at bringing various church denominations together, says reducing poverty should take precedence over corporate bailouts and that the government and churches should work together as partners."Together we can make a difference and we can indeed fulfill the mandate of our Lord and be faithful in the work of His kingdom," a representative from the group said.
CCT is a coalition of 36 Catholic, Orthodox, mainline Protestant and evangelical churches.
Together they claim to represent about 100 million Christians in the U.S.
