I haven’t written about Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and his Sojourners group for a while. See Fun With Numbers for a good analysis of their latest ramblings and rationalizations for advancing failed Leftist policies while pretending to be centrists.
Behind the numbers are vulnerable people and sacred lives.
. . .
We will let Congress know we must not balance our national budget on the backs of “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40).
They fought strenuously for the health care bill when it included taxpayer-funded abortions and they opposed the Stupak Amendment which would have removed abortion funding. In other words, they are pro-abortion, which makes their claims about “vulnerable people” and the “least of these” ring hollow.
Also remember that Wallis originally denied taking money from George Soros, then finally admitted it, then recently took another $150,000 from a Leftist atheist who is on record for opposing America. But Wallis is a real centrist, right?
Come and See!
Inspired by the biblical story of Philip and Nathanael (John 1:43-46), Sojourners is calling on faith communities and faith-based organizations to invite their Congressional representatives to “come and see” the organizations and people in your communities that will be placed at risk by severe budget cuts.
And leave it to them to rip a Bible passage out of context to justify their Leftist ends. (What does the story of Nathaniel and Phillip have to do with this? Couldn’t anyone use that “come and see” bit for any reason?)
As usual, they are being “generous” with other people’s money and releasing endorphins as they congratulate themselves.
One thought on “Oh noes! Sojourners is mobilizing!”
The problem with Wallis and other leftists is that they pretend spending cuts MUST come from areas like police, fire and schools. This is nonsense and a fear-mongering tactic to get people to drop the issue of spending cuts. There are plenty of areas where cuts are obvious and the leftists know this. So, Wallis is complicit in this lie as well.
