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! If I'm going to Jeremiah's Wright's church? Yes! Leave your church. Social justice and economic justice. They are code words. If you have a priest that is pushing social justice, go find another parish.Chrisianity Today magazine) As Beck explained elsewhere in his program, what he means by "code words" is that terms like "social justice" were also employed by Nazis and Communists to rally their followers. I guess that means that anyone who preaches social justice could be leading us down the path to totalitarianism. So I followed Beck's suggestion and searched my temple's website for the term "social justice." Lo and behold, I found over 100 references to social justice: discussion groups, programs, seminars, committees, you name it. Little did I know that all the do-gooders at my temple are actually advocates of tyranny. So if you follow Glenn Beck, I guess you should run away from my temple, and presumably any church, synagogue or mosque that uses the words "social justice" or "economic justice." I'm thinking that following this advice would empty out an awful lot of pretty mainstream churches.
I also wonder where Glenn Beck's followers are going to find a church that preaches social injustice. Presumably, if social justice is a bad thing, that we should run away from, then we should be trying to create more social injustice. But for some reason you don't find too many preachers advocating injustice as a way of sparing us from totalitarianism.
What next for Glenn Beck? Now that he has come out firmly against social justice, will he be telling us to turn away from brotherhood next? Should we distrust compassion? What about love? How do we know those aren't code words also? Next thing you know, the only churches that will be acceptable to Glenn Beck's followers will be those openly advocating hate, intolerance, and fear. Or maybe that's already a pretty good summary of Beck's message.
