Archbishop fears impact of welfare cuts on families | Christian News on Christian Today.

Well done to Archbishop Vincent Nichols, the head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, for speaking out once again about the tendency of our current government to direct cuts towards the most vulnerable (and least vocal) in society.  His letter to the Work and Pensions Secretary, Iain Duncan Smith, comes hot on the heals of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s excellent piece published in the New Statesman.

We need more church leaders to speak out on behalf of the marginalized and the poorest in our society.  After all, is that not what Jesus would do??
