Have Democrats Lost Faith In Faith-Based Outreach?

Date: November 3, 2010

 But the Rev. Jim Wallis, a progressive evangelical who is close to Democratic leaders, said Tuesday’s election pointed to the party’s lack of vision, not networks.

“It’s a lot deeper than outreach,” Wallis said. “They haven’t connected with many Americans in terms of their daily lives and values. As Proverbs says, `Where there is no vision, the people perish.’ And people are perishing.”
