Yes, he is good.

I've been trying to get O'Reilly to have him on his show as a balance to Jim Wallis (one of the leaders in the religious left movement). O'Reilly is out of his league with Wallis,, and the guys (who will remain unnamed) that he and Hannity usually invite on to balance Wallis have managed to diminish their own credibility in the eyes of the public.

Here is a copy of my letter to him:

Friday, 10-22-2004

Dear Mr. O'Reilly,

Please consider my pithy request to have Dr. Ronald H. Nash, PhD on your show for balance when you feature representatives from the religious left. (His credentials can be found here:

I have many of his books, one of which is entitled, "Why The Left is Not Right - The Religious Left: Who They Are and What They Believe" [Zondervan, Grand Rapids Michigan - 1996].

In it, he examines the writings and work of three major figures who have shaped the current Religious Left scene: Jim Wallis, editor of Sojourners magazine; Ron Sider, president of Evangelicals for Social Action; and Tony Campolo, professor of sociology at Eastern College.

If you're interested in granting my request, I think you'll be able to contact him at this email address:

As an aside, you may be interested in the comments I made in the thread I'm linking you to below [Please refresh your browser for the latest posts]:

Capitalist Ron Nash: "The New Face of Marxism - The Religious Left / Jim Wallis-Sojourners
Issues, Etc. ^ | Monday, October 11, 2004 | Ronald Nash, PhD

"Since O'Reilly had a couple of guys on his program last night (10-21-04) from the Religious Left - one of whom was specifically referred to as being affiliated with Sojourners - the flagship magazine of the Religious Left - maybe we should request that he give equal time to a Capitalist like Ron Nash."


Thanks for considering my request.

Warm regards,
[Name and Town]


Haven't heard a word back from him.
