Jim Wallis to Religion Reporters: Stop Stereotyping Evangelicals

Date: October 10, 2011


Jim Wallis, President of Sojourners, urged religion reporters to stop stereotyping evangelicals in anop-ed for The Huffington Post. A group of activists and bloggers responded with an open letter to Wallis claiming that his charge is “unfair and unsubstantiated.”

“Millions of evangelicals are neither conservative Republicans, part of the Religious Right, nor members of the tea party, and they don't believe that Christian 'Dominionists' or any other religious group, should take over America – despite what a rash of recent articles and commentaries have said,” Wallis wrote in his Sept. 29 editorial for The Huffington Post.
