The Rev. Jim Wallis, president of Sojourners, and Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, vice president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, are the speakers on Sunday.
Jim Wallis, founder of the Sojourners Community and author of "God's Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It," says that real people of faith refuse to be single-issue voters. Wallis declares that, among other things, such folks "believe that poverty - caring for the poor and vulnerable - is a religious issue.... Human rights - respecting the image of God in every person - is a religious issue.... A consistent ethic of human life is a religious issue."
