Rev. Jim Wallis, a member of President Obama's "faith council" who is described as a spiritual adviser to the president, is a socialist activist who has championed communist causes and previously labeled the U.S. "the great captor and destroyer of human life."
Wallis was in the news last week urging Christians to stop watching Fox News host Glenn Beck's program for Beck's remarks against churches that preach "social justice."
The Associated Baptist Press described Wallis as a "politically progressive evangelical and longtime advocate for the poor." The Huffington Post identified Wallis as a "Christian author and social justice advocate."
Wallis, however, is a long time socialist advocate and founder of a far-left magazine, Sojourners, that has championed communist causes....
The article in WND is somewhat misleading. Wallis is not Obama's pastor, Obama does not attend his church, or any church for that matter, so to say that Wallis is Obama's pastor in the way that Wright was is misleading. Wallis is a member of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships which was started by President Bush. Not surprisingly most of the clergy (it includes Catholics, Protestants, Jews, and Muslims) on the council are politically and theologically liberal, so singling out Wallis from a group of other members of the religious left makes little sense. But methinks an article saying "Obama's spiritual 'advisors' are a bunch of socialists" wouldn't have had the same oomph as comparing Wallis to Wright.
