And forgive us our idiots, as we forgive those who idiot against us…

Glenn Beck is in an uproar over churches that push “social justice”.  These are apparently code words to indicate that your church is now a supporter of communism and that you should leave the church.  I’m not exaggerating that point.  In his words:

“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!”

I think that Glen Beck, Inc. might actually just be a huge performance art/mindfuck, and the puppetmasters are just trying to see how far they can go towards batshit insane before people stop listening.  If not, if Beck actually believes this as sincerely as his babyface suggests on the screen, then apparently he hasn’t ever, um, read the Bible.

If you’re Catholic, you might recognize the following as the Social Justice Prayer.  Might throw up one or two to whomever this gets addressed to:

“Almighty and eternal God, may your grace enkindle in all of us a love for the many unfortunate people whom poverty and misery reduce to a condition of life unworthy of human beings.

Arouse in the hearts of those who call you Father a hunger and thirst for social justice and for fraternal charity in deeds and in truth.

Grant, O Lord, peace to souls, peace to families, peace to our country and peace among nations. Amen”

(Yup, certainly sounds like a communist government takeover of religion to me…)
