Moral Mondays

"Moral Mondays" are the efforts by faith leaders in North Carolina to call attention to the extremist right wing agenda of their state legislature that injures the poor and least amongst us.  This sums up the hypocrisy of the "Christian" right:
As the senators bowed their heads for an opening prayer, introduced a new crop of pages, and began the evening’s business, the protestors filed by, hundreds upon hundreds, totally quiet, pressing their signs up to the glass—signs about fracking, and women’s rights, and health care reform. “Jesus wept … and so do we.” “In-state tuition for dreamers.” “God wants justice and compassion for the poor.” The senators didn’t look up.
