Ryan Beiler: ONE Vote Video Spot Support Spans Spectrum

I'm impressed. A week after Sojourners/Call to Renewal got an impressive spectrum of religious leaders to unite as Evangelicals for Darfur (it's not often that Jim Wallis and the Christian Coalition find common cause), the ONE Campaign has links to its new "ONE Vote" TV spot on both RNC and DNC Web sites, which will also be broadcast on MTV and Fox networks. It is truly refreshing to see all sides of the political spectrum support causes such as ending genocide, global AIDS, and poverty. But of course, the real proof comes after election day, when the parties have a chance to prove just how dedicated they are to these causes.

Ryan Beiler is the Web Editor for Sojourners/Call to Renewal.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
