Pope Francis 'Reminds Us Of Christ' Says US Evangelical
Pope Francis, whose comments and actions have produced apoplexy among the US religious right, including Tea Party favourite Sarah Palin, "reminds me of Jesus", says a leading evangelical.
The comments come in a Facebook post by Jim Wallis, founder and leader of the Sojourners magazine and community in Washington DC, a pastor and proponent of non-partisan progressive evangelicalism.
"Pope Francis reminds me of Jesus, calling us again to a deeper relationship with Christ," Wallis says. "When he invites homeless men to have breakfast with him on his 77th birthday, or provides a chair and food for the Swiss Guard outside his room, he reminds us of Christ.
