Calling Dr. Jim Wallis President Barack Obama’s “spiritual advisor,” the popular conservative news and opinion website The Daily Caller reported July 7 that the liberal evangelical leader went on a “race rant” at a recent event Hot Springs. But was it really an accusatory, racist rant, from a man “who has the ear of the leader of the free world,” as the website alleges? Or was it part of a constructive dialogue on a tough topic?
The Wild Goose Festival’s main purpose is to discuss how to make the world a more just and equitable place. There is a welcoming atmosphere for people of all faith traditions as well as secularists and non-believers for the Thursday-Sunday, June 26-29 event.
This year’s Wild Goose Festival takes place at Hot Springs Campground, Thursday-Sunday, Aug. 8-11. Speech and Indigo Girls headline, with many more musicians, speakers, presenters and performers.
