Jesus is not a Communist

Mr. Wallis GP uses the Bible to justify his communist leanings. He is totally anti-American and would love to see our country lose its identity. No where in the Bible do you find Jesus calling for income sharing. The never identified the prophets that made the quotes used nor was the Book, Chapter and Verse used! In fact the prophets talked about the people falling away from God or some evil that the King did. Only one prophet mentioned race and that was to kill all those who were not Jewish! Maybe he did not name them because they were not Biblical Prophets. I would not recommend this book to any Christian or true American who loves their country. Unless you want to read a new version of a Communist Manifesto!

    Is there a bit of irony in his 'lecture?'

    Wallis, although he attempts to excoriate both Republicans and Democrats, is clearly more of the liberal sort. This being said, I enjoyed the way he chastised those who would use the Bible for political purposes despite the fact they misquoted much of the Bible. He does a great job of presenting his case until he gets to gays. He made a statement well into the book that indicates he's not as tolerant as he pretends to be. He favors 'civil unions' but he seemed to steer clear of the concept of marriage for gays. I think if he's going to be accepting of everyone, he cannot exclude a group because HE doesn't agree with who they are. As Jimmy Carter stated recently, Jesus never talked or criticized gays, that has been a more modern invention. Mr. Wallis needs to rethink his whole approach if he wants us to believe he's truly accepting of all people.
