Dear Mr. Speaker,

This past Sunday, you gave a speech to the National Religious Broadcasters annual conference and said that cutting spending is the “moral” thing to do. Yesterday, 28 leaders from Christian denominations and organizations put a full page ad in Politico which asked “What Would Jesus Cut?” and declared that “a budget is a moral document.” We said that the moral test of a society is how it treats poor and vulnerable people, but many of the cuts that came out of the House don’t pass that test. So what is the moral course here?
