Jim Wallis is the founder of Sojourners Community and Sojourners Magazine, a Leftist publication which attempts to fuse Christianity with neo-Marxism and Woke cult doctrines. He was an activist in the Students for a Democratic Society (now known as the Democratic Socialists of America) in the 1960s during his time at Michigan State University. A fellow member of the SDS was Bill Ayers, the leader of the Weather Underground militant group, which committed several bombings at various important buildings, such as the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, and multiple police stations. Wallis decided to go a different route. Rather than use outright force and violence to enforce his Marxist worldview, Wallis uses media to achieve a similar goal, with none of the adverse legal repercussions. This enabled him to rise to the position of spiritual advisor to former President of the United States, Barack Obama, in his first term of office. Wallis and his organization were initially hesitant to outright promote sodomite imitations of Biblical marriage, but later he became an open promoter of the practice.

Spiritual Advisor Position:

Jim Wallis is a former spiritual advisor to former President Barack Obama, whose Leftist activism and neo-Marxist mode of political governance is well-known.

George Soros Financial Ties and Controversy:

Jim Wallis’s Sojourners Community organization receives money from George Soros’s Open Society Foundation. George Soros is a well-known, extremely wealthy Jewish Marxist. Initially, Wallis denied claims that his organization received any money from Soros, but was later forced to admit that there is, in fact, a real financial connection. In other words, Wallis felt the need to lie about his organization’s connection to Soros, who is a Marxist atheist, going so far as to make the claim that the only people who fund Sojourners are Christians.

Position on Sodomy:

Wallis is an open promoter of the fad known as “gay marriage.” In an interview with the Huffington Post, he said that “Marriage needs some strengthening. Let’s start with marriage, and then I think we have to talk about, now, how to include same-sex couples in that deeper understanding of marriage.” He also posted this to Twitter in 2019: “Make no mistake: every person represented by a letter in LGBTQIA is beloved by God.” His position is that Scripture only talks about homosexuality twelve times, and that Jesus never spoke of it, so it therefore must not be a real moral transgression. He denies the Biblical covenant of marriage as one man and one woman. 

Critical Race Theory and Jim Wallis’s Demonization of White Christian Evangelicals:

Jim Wallis uses voting rights as cover for attacking and demonizing Christians, especially white evangelicals, which fits quite well with the worldview of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and postmodern identity politics. He wrote on Twitter in October of 2021: “Hard truth: The restriction of voting rights is part of a strategy to protect white supremacy. A strategy that also includes racial gerrymandering, mass incarceration, demonizing immigrants and a naked appeal to white Christian nationalism.” In writing that, he assumed that white Christian nationalists were somehow attempting to restrict the voting rights of others, which is patently false, and he repeated tired and fallacious arguments about “mass incarceration” as a tool of “white supremacy.” Like all Critical Race Theorists, Wallis rejects the obvious truth that communities of people that, on average, commit more crime will, on average, have more people who end up in prison, instead blaming that outcome on the arbitrary, ethereal bogeyman of white supremacists, and then conflating white supremacy with Christian nationalism, despite that they are not even remotely the same, and hardly (if ever) overlap.

Wallis also pretends that committed traditionalists and conservatives are active in producing “racial injustice,” a baseless accusation that is grounded in CRT, not in reality. He wrote this in his book, America’s Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America: “Let nobody give you the impression that the problem of racial injustice will work itself out….That is a myth, and it is a myth because time is neutral. It can be used either constructively or destructively. And I’m absolutely convinced that the people of ill will in our nation—the extreme rightists—the forces committed to negative ends—have used time much more effectively than the people of good will.”
