They call themselves the Matthew 25 Network. Here is their mission statement:
The Matthew 25 Network is a community of Christians -- Catholic, Protestant, Pentecostal, and Evangelical -- inspired by the Gospel mandate to put our faith into action to care for our neighbor, especially the most vulnerable.The group takes its name from Matthew 25:40: "I tell you the truth, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me." I find this ironic given the fact that Senator Obama is rabidly pro-abortion and stands behind Roe v. Wade 100%. Try as I might, I just can't imagine supporting someone who sees the infanticide going on in this country (49 million dead and counting) and thinks there's nothing wrong with it.
The election of our public officials, and the politics they stand for, are a reflection of our core values. We believe that those elected to public office carry an important trust, as their decisions have a profound impact on our nation and our world.
We believe that people of faith should actively participate in the political process as an important avenue for social change. We are called by our faith to engage in the world as it is, while we seek after and hope for God's Kingdom.
Therefore, while no elected official will be without flaw, we come together as individuals to support candidates for public office who share the values of the Matthew 25 Network: promoting life with dignity, caring for the least of these, strengthening and supporting families, stewardship of God's Creation, working for peace and justice at home and abroad, and promoting the common good.
To be fair, Republican Christians aren't off the hook either. Their candidates of choice -- George W. Bush, John McCain, and every other "conservative" who believes in waging preemptive war on civilian populations -- are anything but pro-life.
