The NAE Invites Me to a Ron Sider, Jim Wallis and Tony Campolo Party
The most recent missive was an e-mail which included announcements of the NAE's Evangelical Day of Prayer and Action for Immigration Reform, another Day of Prayer for the Arms Trade Treaty, and an invitation for me to attend the Evangelicals for Social Action's party "to mark Ron Sider's retirement and celebrate 40 years of Jesus-centered holistic ministry, public policy and cultural transformation." Confirmed speakers and workshop leaders at this soiree include the infamously heterodox Tony Campolo and Jim Wallis.
As I've said (with genuine sadness) many times before, "This sure isn't your grandpa's NAE."
For previous posts dealing with the organization (an organization, by the way, that receives funds from just about every evangelical denomination in the country, most of whom are scandalously unaware of the NAE's hard shift to the left), here's a few:
