Remember that Wallis is not praising the Left anymore than he=92s =
praising the
Right: the Right has it wrong, and the Left doesn=92t get it. And he=92s =
trying
to get away from the whole Right-Left divide which jumped the shark ages
ago.

His is a Burkean comedy in a way Burke never imagined. :-D Burke =
distrusted
Christianity; Wallis sees it as the best hope for policy. Burke saw =
comedy
as a momentary push away from victimage (a last pivot in the final act);
Wallis is trying to articulate something that=92s an ongoing comedy.

No, CeeJ, I didn't catch that Daily Show with Howard Dean.  But in his
address at Lancaster Mennonite High, Jim Wallis pointed to the same =
datum,
only he upped the ante.  Wallis said there are 4000 verses in the Bible
about helping the poor, none about abortion.  And, of course, Jesus =
himself
never mentioned gays at all, not according to the gospels.  As Wallis =
noted,
these two issues, gay rights and abortion services, constitute pretty =
much
the entirety of Right-Wing Fundamentalist political activism.  He called
himself a "19th Century Evangelical Christian" born in the wrong =
century.  A
week or so after that appearance in Lancaster, Wallis was on the front =
lines
of protest on Capital Hill, getting arrested for his witness against the
poor-depriving, rich-favoring, budget bill.
