Social Justice: What Glenn Beck doesn't understand, and what Jim Wallis doesn't address

Love Jim Wallis. But Will Shetterly is right:

Wallis fails to take the next step, perhaps because he's trying very hard to give no ammunition to those who call him a commie: Ending slavery required BIG GOVERNMENT. Ending racial segregation required BIG GOVERNMENT. Ending apartheid required BIG GOVERNMENT. The "vital movements of faith" (including atheists who believe in social justice) needed BIG GOVERNMENT to pass BIG LAWS.

Read the whole thing at "it's all one thing."
