Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis has been caught. See Liberal evangelical Jim Wallis admits to $$ from pro-abort billionaire George Soros :: :: ProLifeBlogs.
Institute for Religion and Democracy President Mark Tooley commented:
Wallis’ initial denials and then ultimate confirmation of Soros funding for Sojourners is a revealing turning point for the evangelical left.
Long insisting he represents a mysterious Christian ‘third way’ more enlightened than the old Religious Right, Wallis now stands exposed as what he always was: a man of the political left. From his days 40 years ago as a radical Students for Democratic Society activist, to his championing of the Marxist Sandinistas in 1980s’ Nicaragua, Wallis has always allied himself with secular leftist groups hostile to the historic Church.
Religious leftists may freely tout their views no less than religious conservatives. But Wallis and his Sojourners, as Soros-funded religious leftists, should heed truth in advertising.
Oddly, I haven’t seen a good explanation on Wallis’ blog.
