Wallis, Sharpton Accuse Evangelicals of 'Submitting to White Nationalism'

34 views

Appearing as a guest on Morning Joe Wednesday, liberal Rev. Jim Wallis discussed his book Christ in Crisis: Why We Need to Reclaim Jesus. Not surprisingly, it did not take long for Wallis to begin trashing President Trump and white evangelical Christians. After mentioning that "Lincoln said our leaders should appeal to our better angels," Wallis argued: "we have a leader who appears to our worst demons." Wallis recycled a phrase coined by absent host Joe Scarborough as he made the case that Trump's "policies, words, and practices are antithetical to Jesus." Guest host Willie Geist asked Wallis "what do you say to those (evangelicals) who stay at the side of Donald Trump through all of it?" Wallis did not really answer Geist's question; instead electing to go on a tirade accusing white evangelicals of racism: "this population, white evangelicals, is the most resistant to a multiracial future...when the operative phrase in white evangelical isn't evangelical but white, we have a problem...Is racial bigotry a deal-breaker for the gospel when it isn't for white evangelicals?" Al Sharpton also participated in the discussion and seemed to agree with Wallis's characterization of white evangelicals as racist, claiming that "most of the evangelical leaders have submitted to white nationalism and to Trump." Wallis also made the ridiculous claim that "if Jesus were here today, he'd be celebrating the Black Lives Matter movement," apparently forgetting that BLM activists have chanted phrases such as "what do we want? Dead cops!" and "pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon." Strangely, Wallis had stressed that "our faith and values should shape our politics and not the other way around" just moments earlier. Right.
