From Media Matters:
Glenn Beck has repeatedly attacked the concept of social justice and churches that promote it, asserting that it is “code language for Marxism” and warning that “when you see those words, run.” In fact, numerous churches and religious faiths, as well as prominent religious scholars, espouse social justice, including the Catholic Church, the Conservative and Reform movements of Judaism, and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
Where is the pushback to this insult to many major religions, the Bible, and Jesus Christ, himself? So far, it’s only coming from Sojourners’ Jim Wallis. And if Beck believes what he says to be true, does that mean that the Bush administration’s Office of Faith-Based Initiatives was a waste of time? And if now neither governments nor faith-based organizations should worry about the poor and disenfranchised, then who will?
It must be nice and comfortable up there on that cushion of money, power, and privilege Mr. Beck is sitting on.
Has anyone heard of any other opposition to Beck from religious leaders?
