Religious Leaders Speak Out on King Hearings, Ctd.

Date: March 10, 2011


The drumbeat continues, with more and more faith leaders speaking out to send a message to Rep. Peter King on today's Homeland Security Committee hearings: an attack on one faith is an attack on us all:


Jim Wallis, CEO of Sojourners, in God's Politics:

Make no mistake, we have to overcome terrorism. I'm grateful that we have not been attacked physically on American soil since 9/11. But our country is under theological attack every day in the polarized debate of the West vs. Islam, and that narrative must be changed. And Congressman King's hearings are more likely to reinforce, rather than transform that narrative.
