Election ’08: Barack Obama has joined forces with a white socialist he calls a “good friend” — the Rev. Jim Wallis, founder of “Sojourners.” He too believes in “liberation theology,” sans the black nationalism. In fact, Wallis is the white version of Jeremiah Wright, sans the black rage.
In addition to publishing “Sojourners” magazine, Wallis runs Call to Renewal — a network of liberal churches and activist groups “committed to ending poverty and racism.”
Wright once joined Wallis at the U.S. Capitol in an anti-poverty “preach-in” sponsored by Call to Renewal.
Wallis and his Washington-based operation have essentially replaced Wright and his militantly Afrocentric Chicago church, which Obama expediently dumped in the heat of the primary race after videos surfaced of his fire-breathing preacher damning America.
The avuncular, noncombative Wallis offers Obama a voting bloc that Wright could never help deliver: white Christian evangelicals, if in Birkenstocks.
At the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Obama tapped Wallis to oversee the drafting of the faith-based plank of the party platform (which, by the way, champions outreach programs for “ex-offenders”).
