Beck's message is anti-Christian in spirit as well as fact. It is one of intolerance, racism, and hate.

"Glenn Beck's desire to detach social justice from the Gospel is a move to detach care for the poor from the Gospel. But a church without the poor, and a church without a desire for a just social world for all, is not the church."
~The Rev. James Martin, SJ is the author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything.

It doesn't get any more perverted than Glenn Beck telling people to leave their church if they talk about social justice or economic justice. What is a church supposed to talk about, what is their message, their mission? In every church I have ever attended the message has always been one of love and forgiveness. It has also been one of caring for our neighbor, the poor, the sick and the dying. Clearly to Beck social justice is a catch word for "liberal" ideas. He said they were code words for socialism or Naziism, definitely to Beck's twisted mind they are. To anyone with a smattering of compassion and intelligence his views are repugnant. Glenn Beck's message is anti-Christian in spirit as well as fact. It is one of intolerance, racism, and hate. To stand against social justice and economic justice is cruel. Of course Beck supports the justice of corporate welfare. But with 5 to 7 million more families across America now facing foreclosure he would have us believe that social and economic concerns of churches for their flock is seditious. I guess Glenn didn't read much scripture. “Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.” Message lost on Glenn Beck.

These people are not important to Glenn Beck. "The housing market is facing swelling ranks of homeowners who are seriously delinquent but have yet to lose their homes, and this is threatening a new wave of foreclosures that could hit just as the real estate market has begun to stabilize. About 5 million to 7 million properties are potentially eligible for foreclosure but have not yet been repossessed and put up for sale. Some economists project it could take nearly three years before all these homes have been put on the market and purchased by new owners. And the number of pending foreclosures could grow much bigger over the coming year as more distressed borrowers become delinquent and then, if they can't obtain mortgage relief, wade through the foreclosure process, which often takes more than a year to complete."
