As the U.S. Senate gets ready to vote today on the recently approved House GOP budget , a handful of religious leaders from various denominations have spoken out against the budget because it “contains immoral cuts that would harm the most vulnerable.” # Catholic leaders, two dozen bishops of the Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the United Methodist Church as well as members of the 100,000-plus online community Faithful America have issued letters and petitions stating that the budget lacks compassion and is an affront to Christian values. # The Protestant Bishops’ letter (pdf.) urges senators voting on the House budget proposal “to consider the human costs of massive cuts to social programs and come together across partisan lines to shape a budget that defends human dignity and basic economic security for all Americans.” # The letter questions the cuts to nutrition programs for mothers and infants ( Women, Infants and Children ) and cuts to Medicaid that “will hurt sick children, struggling families and seniors in nursing homes. Proposed changes to Medicare will break the promise that all American seniors get the healthcare they need by forcing them to buy private insurance without assuring that it is affordable.” # In a press release issued Tuesday by the Faith in Public Life , Christian leaders and religious groups denounced Republican Rep.
