Prompted by the Congressional debate over the debt ceiling, faith leaders from nearly every tradition have banded together to fight potential cuts to social programs they see as crucial to supporting the nation's vulnerable and poor. A handful were even arrested at the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, as they protested the fact that government spending reductions will further strain resources for houses of worship. "We need to reduce the federal deficit, but it is not necessary to make life yet tougher for moms who are trying to put food on the table for their kids...it's not right, after all that poor people have been through, especially over the last few years, to hit them while they are down," says David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World.
