Good, Good People

There was one reference in a New York Times piece on the Christian left that was too good not to repeat as an example of the lazy assumptions that saturate (if assumptions can saturate), the paper of Walter Duranty. The article includes quotes from a Reverend Jim Wallis. He’s described as the convener and president of an organization by the name of Call to Renewal. Now, Call to Renewal does what it does, and people will have different views as to how benign it is, but note how the Times uncritically describes it as “a group committed to reducing poverty.”

No word, however, where Call to Renewal stands on apple pie.
