Jim Wallis is one of the brightest minds in the public sphere who just so happens to live and work in Washington. He has a phenomenally balanced perspective on what it means to be simultaneously, and American and a Christian.
For the blowhard featured in the video above…well, he’s hung himself. If he actually did summon the courage to toe off with Wallis, those who are STILL unconvinced about the worthlessness of Beck AND Fox News would discover just how much they’ve been swindled.
Wallis is the real deal, Mr. Beck. Pick your fight wisely.
Jim Wallis Quotes:
“So when the only domestic social policy is tax cuts that mostly benefit the wealthiest Americans, we say, ‘Where is faith being put into action here?’ “
“You can’t be evangelical and associate yourself with Jesus and what he says about the poor and just have no other domestic concerns than tax cuts for wealthy people.”
“Pat Robertson is an embarrassment to the church and a danger to American politics, … It’s time for Christian leaders of all stripes to call on Robertson not just to apologize but to retire.”
“To be evangelical means to preach and live and act in a way that is good news to poor people.”
“We are prophetic interrogators. Why are so many people hungry? Why are so many people and families in our shelters? Why do we have one of six of our children poor, and one of three of these are children of color? ‘Why?’ is the prophetic question.”
