God's Politics

"It is hard for me to believe that Jesus' first priorities would have been a capital gains tax cut and the occupation of Iraq." Listen to Jon Stewart's interview with Jim Wallis on The Daily Show.

Wallis asks when did Jesus become "pro rich, pro war and only pro American." He wants a "better conversation in America" about moral values and he believes that his movement (The Sojourners) will have more influence than the religious right. He cites Lisa Sullivan who said before she died: "we are the ones we have been waiting for" who will comprise a social movement that will change history. And Wallis ends by saying "Our test of how much we love God...is how we love God's children who have been left out and left behind."
