The Nonprofit Quarterly‘s Rick Cohen reports that advocate Chuck Collins advises legislators, governors, and other politicians to step back, think for a minute, and ask themselves, “What would Jesus tax?

Collins suggests that Jesus “would be alarmed about financial and commodity speculation driving up the cost of food and worsening hunger.” He (Collins, not Jesus) [nicely clarified – ed.] proposes “sin taxes” that would “discourag(e) financial speculation and environmental destruction-while reducing the huge canyon between rich and poor.”

Nice to see that partisan clowns urging radical social change in Jesus’s name aren’t all on the right.
