Two weeks ago during the Sojourners Truth and Civility Election Watch, Rev. Jim Wallis warned about the connection between “violence of tongue, fist and heart.” This connection was made after a Move On staff person was dragged to the ground and stomped in the head by a Rand Paul campaign coordinator.
Just in time for the election, one of the nation’s leading public theologians analyzes what some Tea Partiers think about God and why it will matter on Election Day.
One in four Christian conservatives claim to be a part of the Tea Party movement, according to a recent survey, but Sojourners President Jim Wallis gives seven reasons that Jesus might not sign up among their ranks.
Sojourners' mission is to articulate the biblical call to social justice, inspiring hope and building a movement to transform individuals, communities, the church, and the world.
Sojourners - publisher of a monthly magazine of the same name - is a voice and vision for social change. Founded in 1971 as a faith-based organization, Sojourners provides an alternative perspective on faith, politics, and culture through its magazine, Web site, e-mail services, media commentaries, and public events. Ecumenical and progressive, Sojourners lifts up the biblical connection between social justice and spiritual renewal. Sojourners nurtures community by bringing together people from the various traditions and streams of the church and also hosts an annual program of voluntary service.
