A Christian conversion

Jim Wallis – Chicago Sun-Times, Op-ed
“This generation won’t accept the narrowing of scripture to only two
hot-button social issues. They have found those 2,000 verses in the
Bible that speak of God’s concern for the poor and vulnerable. For
them, environmental concern is “creation care.” And they want a
“consistent ethic of life” that addresses all the places where human
life and dignity is threatened — not just one.
That doesn’t mean that their votes, which conservative Republicans
have taken for granted, will now automatically go to liberal Democrats.
Instead, they are eager to challenge the selective moralities of both
left and right, and respond to a moral agenda for politics that will
hold both sides accountable. In the future, any candidate (from either
party) who speaks the moral language of politics and lifts up the
issues of social justice the Bible talks so much about could attract
the attention of this new generation.”
