Commemorating 9-11, liberal activist Jim Wallis of Sojourners announced at a World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) and Sojourners sponsored press conference at Ground Zero that he is “feeling proud today to be an evangelical.” But he also denounced the U.S. for its War on Terror since 9-11.
Pax Christi USA, a leftist Catholic group, hosted Evangelical Left activist Jim Wallis at Catholic University in Washington, D.C. to commemorate 9/11.
“Being American is one of the worst bubbles” from which to develop a biblical perspective on politics, according to Jim Wallis. The CEO of the liberal Christian activist group called Sojourners explained that a correct interpretation of the Biblical politics is determined by life experiences. For “white evangelicals” in America, though, that experience is an insulated “bubble.”
