Take action now:

Jim Wallis of Sojourners

Jim Wallis is a far-left religious leader associated with Sojourners and with Christians for Comprehensive Immigration Reform. He's a past or present Marxist; see this. Currently serving on Obama's Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships advisory board.

Discrediting Wallis over immigration matters would be easy and would have a great impact on the abilities of religious leaders to support illegal activity. His parishioners should be urged to publicly confront him (on video) with tough questions about his positions.

Jim Wallis has a low opinion of his supporters (Sojourners, immigration reform) - 02/19/14

If you're a follower of Jim Wallis of Sojourners, I have some bad news: he has a very low opinion of you. In a post at Time Magazine [1], he writes false and misleading statements that would make a used car salesman blush. And, apparently he thinks his supporters aren't going to pick up on how he's misleading them. First, there's the title: "An Evangelical’s Plea With the GOP on Immigration...

Evangelical Immigration Table supports bad personal and public policy (Sojourners, Focus on the Family, Richard Land) - 06/12/12

... questioner to "cross-examine" Jim Wallis using the Question Authority plan. Discrediting him on video for Youtube would send a strong message to all the rest. 6/13/12 UPDATE: The attached video is a radio ad the Table is running in Florida. Note: the link in the video is to this post. 6/13/12 UPDATE 2: I moved the list of signatories into a separate post, see the link in the first paragraph. 6/...

Sojourners deletes comment showing how Jim Wallis can't be trusted (immigration) UPDATE: they banned me too - 04/23/10

If you trust Jim Wallis or the Sojourners organization, please keep reading. A couple of days ago I left the comment below on one of his blog entries [1]. Despite not violating any provisions of their "Code of Conduct" (printed at [2]), the comment was deleted. Apparently showing how at least Wallis' position on immigration is that of a charlatan is too much for them.

Brewer signs Arizona immigration law; far-left begins opposition (MALDEF, America's Voice, Phil Gordon) - 04/23/10

Earlier today, Arizona governor Jan Brewer signed into law the tough immigration bill from Russell Pearce (link). Video of her signing and brief remarks are at peekURL.com/vm1nzd1 Someone tries to ask her a gotcha question about how to spot illegal aliens at peekURL.com/vmlxvwr ; she kind of flubs the answer and should have just responded with the fact that the Border Patrol and others involved...

Obama Faith-Based Initiative includes secular "community organizations" (+ illegal immigration supporters Jim Wallis, David Saperstein) - 02/07/09

... support for illegal immigration: Jim Wallis and David Saperstein. The problems with the first's arguments have been discussed here in the past; the second is a frequent quote source in support of illegal immigration and was mentioned here and here. On a brighter note, the plan and the advisors aren't sitting too well with the far-left [3]. A few details on some of the others are here. If anyone...

Christians for Comprehensive Immigration Reform to oppose Lou Barletta (Jim Wallis backgrounder) - 04/17/08

... Immigration Reform (headed up by Jim Wallis) held a press conference where they stated their opposition to Hazleton, Pennsylvania mayor Lou Barletta. It was probably what you'd suspect, and their press release had more of the same: ..."They need to stop using rhetoric that demonizes immigrants and make an effort to respect all people, including immigrants..." Barletta responded to the paper by...

... despite it featuring questions from Jim Wallis and Samuel Rodriguez [1] of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, and despite the high profile that religious leaders have in promoting amnesty.

Christians for Comprehensive Immigration Reform - 05/07/07

... Reform is a new group headed up by Jim Wallis, and they're wrong. In order to promote legalization for all as well as a "guest" worker program, they'll be conducting an ad campaign, letter writing effort, and most likely advocating from the pulpit. First, they're selectively quoting the Bible; see the links here. Second, what they support will make things far worse for all concerned; see this...

Sojourners/Jim Wallis promoting massive amnesty to Congress - 04/07/07

A purported copy is here: tgdarkly.com/blog/?p=542 Wallis has a blog at beliefnet.com/blogs/godspolitics, and I urge everyone to leave comments there designed to help his parishioners understand all...

The Messianic President - 10/16/04

... Methodist, very open, seeking,'' (Jim Wallis of the Sojourners) says now. ''What I started to see at this point was the man that would emerge over the next year -- a messianic American Calvinist. He doesn't want to hear from anyone who doubts him.'' ...Every few months, a report surfaces of the president using strikingly Messianic language, only to be dismissed by the White House. Three months...
