I found this piece over at Christian Post troublesome. Clearly, Glenn Beck attacked and gave a real drubbing to Churches who are heavily involved in so-called “Social Justice” issues. At the time of his attack on those churches, he gave a number of well thought out, and documented programs describing the evolution of how many of these Churches were becoming radicalized without really understanding the basis or etiology of the political agenda. I am no big fan of Beck, mainy because I cannot take a steady diet of him. That said, I have learned much and have enjoyed his clips on the Progressive movement. It is hard to argue with primary sources that cannot be denied. Maybe I found this story disturbing because I too felt a need to leave a Church for these same reasons. I am including a vid of Van Jones describing Social Justice. For more background that got Glenn into difficulty, our earlier post: Glenn Beck says Collective Salvation is demonic – Obama believes in it.
A good read over at the Eastern Right on Liberation Theology with links to the full Beck Program and an article by Pope Benedict regarding Collective Salvation. Pick up the story here
UPDATE: Caught this at The Blaze :
The group credits Res Publica and True Majority for helping establish itself as a “religious version of MoveOn.org.” Res Publica is a progressive organization largely funded by George Soros’ Open Society Institute and boast board members such as John Podesta of the Center for American Progress and Eli Pariser, executive director of MoveOn. In 2008, Soros’ Open Society Institute awarded two $400,000 grants to Faithful America.
Here tis from:Christian Post:
Faithful America describes itself as an online community of citizens motivated by faith to take action on social problems such as ending poverty, promoting economic security, promoting peace and restoring America’s commitment to human rights and diplomacy, preventing harmful effects of climate change, countering hate speech and misinformation in the media about people of faith, and working to build communities where immigrants and people of faiths are welcomed. (Their website says it all:http://www.faithfulamerica.org/) Got it!
“The pressure on Beck and his sponsors is building. And the bottom line is no responsible person or company should support programming that promotes menacing conspiracy theories and tells listeners to flee from churches that talk about social justice,” said Faithful America in the statement. “This should go double for a company claiming to represent Christian values.”
“We invite WMCA and WNYM to use this Lenten period to reflect on their Christian values and make a commitment not to pick up Glenn Beck, during the next 40 days or any time after.”
Faithful America, an online community that claims to be made up of over 100,000 people of faith, is calling on two Salem Communications-owned radio stations in New York – WMCA and WNYM – to “give up Glenn Beck for Lent.”
The two Christian radio stations are the only ones left in the New York City area that have not made a commitment to remove Beck from their airwaves, according to Faithful America. From Philadelphia to Madison, radio stations have already dropped Beck’s program from their line-up due to falling ratings and poor content.
“Beck’s caustic remarks, fear-mongering and bigotry have led to a national backlash,” Faithful America asserts in a statement. More at Christian Post
From the Right Scoop: Van Jones spoke at Guilford College in North Carolina a couple of days ago and defined Social Justice for the audience. He said that if you could write your life on a card and put it in a hat filled with cards from everyone else in your country, and that you could then be totally assured that any card you pulled out would be a good life for you to live, then you know you live in a social justice country.
As the makers of the video points out, that’s communism:
