Pastor Jim Wallis isn’t one to candy-coat his views about Jesus and the Bible. Wallis, who is revered as the modern-day father of the “Christian left,” has urged believers to embrace the Occupy Wall Street movement and has made his own, personal quest for social justice known. He continues to allege that the protesters who insist that they are “the 99 percent” are people who “stand with Jesus.”
Over the weekend, The Blaze reported about a video interview with the leftist pastor that was aired earlier this week at Lifetree Café locations across the country. In a short clip from the presentation, Wallis was seen claiming that America is “not a Christian nation“ and that it has ”never been a Christian nation.”
“We set this up so that it would not be a Christian nation for any religious framework,” he proclaimed. “Where in the Bible is there a special place for America? Where do we get that that’s bad theology…just bad theology.”
