Christian Coalition Declines to Fight Poverty, Go Green

WWJD? Rev. Joel Hunter, president-elect of the powerful Pat Robertson-founded Christian Coalition who was scheduled to assume leadership in the new year, has declined the job, because the group "wouldn't let him expand its agenda beyond opposing abortion and gay marriage."

[H]e had hoped to focus on issues such as poverty and the environment.

"These are issues that Jesus would want us to care about," said Hunter, a senior pastor at Northland Church in Longwood, Fla.

..."They pretty much said, 'These issues are fine, but they're not our issues, that's not our base,'" Hunter said.
At what point can we withdraw the tax exempt status from an organization who has essentially admitted that they're just using Christianity as a front for their anti-woman, anti-gay hate group?
