‘Religiously-Repugnant’: Progressive Preacher Jim Wallis Blasts the NRA for Its ‘Dangerous Theology’

Jim Wallis, a well-known, progressive faith leader, is no fan of the National Rifle Association (NRA). In fact, he’s an outspoken advocate for more gun control and, on Wednesday, he publicly joined other left-of-center faith leaders to push fervently for government intervention in cracking down on firearms. In an article published yesterday on his web site, Sojourners, Wallis continued to air his views about the nation’s most prominent gun-rights group, taking specific issue with the NRA’s so-called “dangerous theology.”

“As an evangelical Christian, I’m going to make this theological,” wrote the Christian leader, going on to call a recent statement from Wayne LaPierre, executive vice-president of the NRA, “morally mistaken, theologically dangerous, and religiously-repugnant.”
