Skip to comments.A liberal God? (regarding Jim Wallis' view of libertarians & the Tea Party)
Posted on 07/27/2010 12:39:07 AM PDT by Brugmansian
Nothing seems to scare the populist Left more than the people. Protest the Obama administrations big spending, pervasive centralizing, expansive regulating policies, and you must be an enemy of all that is good and true. Attend a Tea Party rally and youre probably a racist and certainly not a Christian.
At least that is the view of the leading left-wing evangelical Jim Wallis. Indeed, he sees the Tea Party as an essentially libertarian movement, which makes it doubly suspect. He declares: Libertarianism has never been much of a multi-cultural movement. Need I say that racismovert, implied, or even subtleis not a Christian virtue.
So Tea Party activists arent good Christians. And many of them are racists. Of course.
Wallis is a devout and well-intentioned Christian believer, but . . .

Christian believer? Well that’s a hardy, har, har, uhm, NO!
There is no such thing as a Christian believer.
You either are or you are . . . Well, only God knows where you are going.
God is not liberal. He is, in fact, pretty a pretty strict literalist.
You will, one day, come to know this, eternally.
They’re going to play this “racism” thing for all it’s worth.
I hope so!
This is not, I think, going unnoticed by Hispanics. Obama got 67% of their vote in 2008. Nielson poll out tonight shows only 43% think he is "addressing their needs".
If Democrats can't get 60% of the Hispanic vote, they are DOA.
Do you thing that the average americans are swallowing that “racism” fraud and lies?
If it was correctly handled by a true opposition(ie not the GOP)it could backclash and hit the libtard-dems badly as they would appear as the lying frauds they are and those who ,actually, are fueling antagonisms between races!
No, he's a devout leftist attempting to coopt Christianity to further his ends. I can think of a few past fascist states that tried the same thing. Wallis is the classic wolf in sheep's clothing. We're warned about such people by the Bible itself.
Didn’t King George III say the same stuff about our Founders? ... Those rowdy rebel rousers.
Wallis attempts to beat a dead horse.
Neither redistribution of wealth.
Ah now there is the logical disconnect. By putting forward two statements, both of which individually are quite true, he sets up a condition in the mind of the unwary that connects the two. Racism is not a Christian virtue, because racism is based on an unjust evaluation of what people are supposed to be like, and therefore it is not true. Libertarianism is not noted for its multi-cultural aspects, principally because its not something that true libertarianism per se is all that interested in. You might equally say that the American association of meat vendors isnt noted for its multi-cultural aspects. Of course not - they're more interested in filleting steaks. That is their principal concern. The principal concern of libertarianism is the constraint of statism, not stroking multicultural sensibilities.
Being proud of your own heritage and culture does not neccesarily mean you are hostile to other peoples and their cultures. That's nonsense. In fact its downright dangerous to assert so.
“Wallis is a devout and well-intentioned Christian believer, but .,,,,”
Wallis is a heretic and false teacher.
The libertarians that I know give much (usually quietly) to those truly in need and expect much from those who can help themselves.
“left-wing evangelical “?
That’s tantamount to a pyromaniac fireman.
King George III more likely said “wibble, water my marigolds with powdered bookends” (he wasn’t well at the time).
I've heard Jim Wallis on the radio. He's a lying, full bore Stalinist without a shred of Christian belief in his soul. This man needs to be called out everywhere he goes, for everything he does.
Just wait till the GOP starts attacking the Tea Parties.
Niether side wants them, they are to much a threat to the status quo.
keep 4 later
Another jimmy swaggert.
I loathe the religious left.
