Christian Coalition: Love the Coalition, Hate the Jesus

Looks like the Christian Coalition was looking for more of a Republican Jesus type to lead the organization. Their most recent head was asked to leave after it was revealed he wanted to focus on the poor. Silly man, doesn't he know that we do God's work when we push for a repeal of the Estate Tax?
The president-elect of the Christian Coalition of America (Rev. Joel C. Hunter), which has long served as a model for activism for the religious right, has stepped down, saying the group resisted his efforts to broaden its agenda to include reducing poverty and fighting global warming.
...

Dr. Hunter said his departure from the Christian Coalition indicated his belief in the rise of an evangelical Christian constituency that is less interested in the passage of certain laws and focused instead on “living what Jesus would do.”
I am not a jesusologist, but I think Jesus kind of focused on issues related to helping the poor. I guess the Christian Coalition just didn't get the memo.

The last line confuses me. Shouldn't it read that they are more interested in passing certain laws and less interested in "Living what Jesus would do?" Just pondering in my slow, unqualified way.
