The Reverend Jim Wallis is an evangelical Christian writer and political activist, best known as the founder and editor of Sojourners Magazine,
and of the Washington, D.C.-based Christian community of the same name. President Obama attempts to put on a more spiritual face on his progressive government controlled policies.
Wallis actively eschews political labels, but his advocacy tends to focus on issues of peace and social justice, earning him his primary support from the religious left. Wallis is also known for his opposition to the religious right’s fiscal and foreign policies.

Glenn Beck elaborates on Rev. Jim Wallis:
Wouldn’t God be in favor of more freedom rather than less? Progressives throughout history have worked to decrease rights in the name of social justice. By trying to eliminate the argument of religion on the Left or Right, people like Rev. Wallis hope to promote the civil landscape of change by appealing to Christianity’s morality in order to glorify meritocracy.
What was wrong with the old ‘moral logic’ that gave birth to this great country? Apparently, according to Rev. Wallis the Occupy Wall Street crowd he believes “they stand with Jesus.” The Blaze reported back in October 2011:
Wallis, who has a history of championing far-left causes (he just accepted another $150,000 from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation), has already indicated that some of the protesters’ actions and stances show that “they stand with Jesus.”
He went down to Wall Street last week and has essentially backed the movement publicly. In a new HuffPo piece entitled, “An Open Letter to the Occupiers from a Veteran Troublemaker,” he offers up his advice to the young people who continue to reside in Zuccotti Park.
From a January 13, 2006 radio interview with Interfaith Voices:
Host: Are you then calling for the redistribution of wealth in society?
Wallis: Absolutely, without any hesitation. That’s what the Gospel is all about.
