Standing with sojourners: when progressive isn’t progressive enough


Sojourners, the bastion of evangelical progressivism, has found itself in a maelstrom of criticism. 

Sojourners rejected an advertisement by  Believe Out Loud , an interdenominational outfit dedicated to helping churches and clergy become LGBT affirming, and then set about defending his rationale .  The decision and (allegedly) tepid justification have angered many in the religious left, some of whom have suggested that Wallis’ refusal to run the ad means that he can no  longer be considered the leader of their movement .
