George Soros' "Rent-an-Evangelist" program
Oct 23, 2018
It is amazing what some Christian ministers will do for money.
Jim Wallis was part of President Obama’s White House Faith Counsel in 2010. He was caught lying about receiving grants from George Soros. The “Rent-an-Evangelist” program has worked quite well. My suggestion is not to be a part of it and be careful about who you support, lest you be a partaker in their “reward.”
Earlier this month, in Patheos, Wallis wrote, "No, we don’t receive money from George Soros."
Now, a new report in World magazine finds Soros, a billionaire who has financed groups promoting abortion, bankrolled Sojourners with a $200,000 grant in 2004. Since then, the magazine indicates, Sojourners has received at least two more grants from Soros organizations altogether totaling $325,000, the most recent in 2007.
Sojourners revenues have more than tripled — from $1,601,171 in 2001-2002 to $5,283,650 in 2008-2009.
But the Jim Wallis scandal is only the tip of the iceberg.
Besides the Soros grants, for instance, there are two 2006 grants from the infamous Tides Foundation totaling $72,106; a Ford Foundation grant in 2008 for $100,000; a Rockefeller Brothers Fund grant for $100,000 in 2005; and a $50,000 grant from the Wallace Global Fund in 2008. The Wallace Global Fund also supports ACORN and a cornucopia of population-control groups.
Three grants, totaling $20,000 between 2005 and 2007, are from the Streisand Foundation in California. Yes, that Streisand foundation. (That’s just funny.) Other recipients of Streisand philanthropy include People for the American Way and Planned Parenthood Federation of America. This is very left-wing company.
