Date: October 7, 2011

Popular Christian leader Jim Wallis has joined the "Occupy Wall Street” movement Friday. Wallis, the CEO and President of Sojourners, a progressive Christian commentary, offered the perspective that "Occupy Wall Street” protestors are standing with Jesus.

"When they stand with the poor, they stand with Jesus. When they stand with the hungry, they stand with Jesus. When they stand for the those without a job or a home, they stand with Jesus,” Wallis wrote in a Huffington Post article.
