Truthdigger of the Week: The Rev. Joel Hunter

This week Truthdig salutes the Rev. Joel Hunter, who recently resigned as president of the Christian Coalition because the group was unwilling to accept his agenda on global warming, poverty and AIDS. While we don’t endorse Hunter’s stand on choice and gay marriage, we admire the consistency of his pro-life position. As the pastor himself says, “unless we are caring as much for the vulnerable outside the womb as inside the womb, we’re not carrying out the full message of Jesus.”
