Christian Backlash Against Beck Continues

The New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good, founded by the pro-life Bush supporter Rev. Rich Cizik, was the first to respond when Glenn Beck claimed that churches that support social justice are Communist or Nazis. They asked for $5,000 to put together a web video responding to Beck. Today, they debuted that video. Their message? "Lighten up, Glenn!"

Ok, so we have an entertainer

And he's holding up a picture of a swastika and a hammer and sickle.

Wow.  Gee. Oh wait. I think I have some household chores to take care of. I promise I will get back to this. It looks really ... important...

Amazing

It's pretty amazing that Glenn would attack Social Justice - every single major world religion from Christianity to Buddhism have Social Justice as a core belief. Take it away and you basically have someone who defends the rights of the rich to exploit the poor and working classes.

If Glenn was worth a damn I would have expected a rebuke from no less than the Pope or Dalai Lama.

The ad was good if a little too soft. Rather than the "Ligthen Up!" at the end I would have said "Grow a Brain, Moran" or "Don't be a Fool" instead.

RE: Amazing

I believe the religion of Modern Crazy Embittered Paranoid Conservative does not have Social Justice as one of its core beliefs.  Beck, being its doughy, pre-pubescent priestess in chief, is just expressing his religious views on this matter.
