Reverend James Martin S.J. is a funny guy or at least when he plays the role of Robert Colbert’s Chaplain when he appears on Colbert's show. He got more serious last week in addressing an appeal by pope Rupert’s bishop Glenn Beck to turn his entertainment news game show host personality - into focus - and to target human decency and the social justice of the Gospels as dirty profane words and ideas.
Human decency and social justice were issues long before the gospels. Jesus in essence was killed because of these ideas that presented a challenge to the corrupt Temple Hierarchy. Looking at the corrupt hierarchy of the present Vatican administration, one can see the arrogance and a hint of what Jesus was up against in his time.
In our time, social justice and human decency remains the unfinished work of Jesus and is an ongoing work for all people of all creeds on the planet that have a focused and balanced vision of the future goals of humanity for the good of all, not just some.
Glenn Beck to Jesus: Drop Dead
I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words. Now, am I advising people to leave their church? Yes… Glenn BeckThere is a challenge from the Rev. Jim Wallis to debate Glenn on his program regarding his Anti-Christian, Anti-Christ platitudes delivered on behalf of the ruling moneyed classes who fear social justice for the masses.
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… James Martin S.J.
Evangelical leader takes on Beck for assailing social justice churches
An evangelical leader is calling for a boycott of Glenn Beck's television show and challenging the Fox News personality to a public debate after Beck vilified churches that preach economic and social justice.Jerry Falwell Jr., fat off his father’s cash cow church preaching business is in agreement with Anti-Christ Beck who is vying to succeed the great god Limbaugh as high priest of the Pro-Money/Anti-People interests of the establishment – in his new GOP Religion?
The Rev. Jim Wallis, president of Sojourners, a network of progressive Christians, says Beck perverted Jesus' message when he urged Christians last week to leave churches that preach social and economic justice.
Wallis says Beck compared those churches to Communists and Nazis…
"He wants us to leave our churches, but we should leave him," Wallis says of Beck. "When your political philosophy is to consistently favor the rich over the poor, you don't want to hear about economic justice."
Social and economic justice is at the heart of Jesus’ message, Wallis says.
Anti-Christ is an obsolete term as far as I am concerned. But when such raw, naked, hatred for humanity in general (evil) is presented on FOX NEWS – it is a major force to be dealt with by all men and women of good conscience for the sake of the future of our republic.
I urge all to not only boycott Beck but the ARK of SATAN as well – which is FOX NEWS.
Glenn Beck is more than mere mental masturbation and entertainment. He is dangerous – potentially harmful to all humanity. He is the current American Anti-Christ.
