    Re: If MLK were alive today, would he be on Glenn Beck's 'chalkboard?'

    Beck, Limbaugh and Palin are evil because they make a living out of opinion. They only have opinions so that they can get paid evil amounts of money. Leaders and representatives and others in power in Washington however are nothing but harmless cute lovable little fuzzballs who probably don't earn evil amounts of money when they actually run the country and actually have the power to do all of the horrible things disneydude my say of Beck, Limbaugh and Palin. But since Beck, Limbaugh and Palin get payed by voluntary contributions they're evil because extorting money and counterfeiting it to pay the salaries of our leaders and representatives isn't as long as they're progressive leftists.

    Somehow I doubt that. Considering he's said things like this:

    Christians Urged to Boycott Glenn Beck - NYTimes.com

    Last week, the conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck called on Christians to leave their churches if they heard any preaching about social or economic justice because, he claimed, those were slogans affiliated with Nazism and Communism.

    This week, the Rev. Jim Wallis, a liberal evangelical leader in Washington, D.C., called on Christians to leave Glenn Beck.

    “What he has said attacks the very heart of our Christian faith, and Christians should no longer watch his show,” Mr. Wallis, who heads the antipoverty group Sojourners, wrote on his “God’s Politics” blog. “His show should now be in the same category as Howard Stern.”

    Mr. Beck, in vilifying churches that promote “social justice,” managed to insult just about every mainline Protestant, Roman Catholic, African-American, Hispanic and Asian congregation in the country — not to mention plenty of evangelical ones.

    Even Mormon scholars in Mr. Beck’s own church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said in interviews that Mr. Beck seemed ignorant of just how central social justice teaching was to Mormonism.

    The controversy began when Mr. Beck said on his radio show: “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.

    “Am I advising people to leave their church? Yes! If I am going to Jeremiah Wright’s church,” he said, referring to the incendiary black pastor who led the church attended by the Obama family members when they lived in Chicago. “If you have a priest that is pushing social justice, go find another parish. Go alert your bishop and tell them, ‘Excuse me, are you down with this whole social justice thing?’ ”
    and MLK said this:

    A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.
    An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
    But hey, what do I know.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Thought you might be interested in knowing a little bit about Sojourners. Maybe you can see why they are attacking Glenn beck and vice versa.

    The Washington Post reported that in 2007 Sojourners rented its mailing list to Barack Obama's presidential campaign.[5]

    In July 2010, Marvin Olasky, editor-in-chief of WORLD magazine, wrote that Sojourners accepted money from George Soros, who has financed groups supporting abortion and atheism.[6] Jim Wallis responded as follows: "It's not hyperbole or overstatement to say that Glenn Beck lies for a living. I'm sad to see Marvin Olasky doing the same thing. No, we don't receive money from Soros." Wallis later admitted that Sojourners had, in fact, accepted funds from Soros' Open Society Institute. Wallis stated that the funds made up "the tiniest fraction of Sojourner's funding during that decade--so small that I hadn't remembered them."[6] The grants from the Open Society Institute totaled $275,000 from 2004 to 2007.[7] Wallis apologized to Olasky for his comments about him. Jay Richards wrote that Sojourners had received $2.2 million from various foundation grants from 2003 to 2009, including the Tides Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Wallace Global Fund, and the

    and you may want to do a little more digging on Beck's description of Social Justice which he (correctly) identifies as a concept used to gain Christian support for the governemnt redistribution of wealth. Given that Jim Wallis said that "that was what the New Testament was all about" (the redistribution of wealth); it's not exactly much surprised he's reacting the way he does, but i wouldn't exactly take theological advice from him.

    You think you know that MLK wanted blacks to sit on their asses all day long and collect welfare checks. Unfortunately for you, MLK didn't mean that.

    What does that have to do with what I said? MLK was a believer in social justice and a government involved in the lives of people. He was a believer in a government with a wide range of social programs and funded them adequately. Glenn Beck believes in none of those things. As a matter of fact, his stupidity, much like yours - has led him to believe that the Christian movements for civil rights of the early and mid 20th century were something other than supporters of social justice. He thinks they were advocating for a holiday and having some streets named after MLK. The reality, my dear fellow, is that MLK was labeled a communist by people of his time. But then again so were most people who were supportive of welfare, providing better opportunities for blacks etc. That alone makes it impossible for Glenn Beck to be an 'admirer' of MLK and anyone claiming so is highly dishonest. Now, are you going to throw any more stupid one liners or go troll some other thread?

    What does this have to do with what I said? You stated Glenn Beck was an 'admirer' of MLK. That, my dear, 'Barb', may I call you Barb? I feel like I should because I can just picture being one more white right winger who thinks they have the civil rights movement figured out, is a ****ing falsehood. For goodness sake MLK in his time was labelled a COMMUNIST and there is ample evidence that he at the very least sympathised so how in the **** could Glenn Beck be an admirer of MLK? No my dear, I'm sorry. That just won't do.

    As far as George Soros goes, oh no! He's pro-choice AND an atheist? Well gosh golly! George Soros has also financed anti-communist movements in Eastern Europe during the 80s and has given money to countless charities. So, the, ****, what?

    Definitely Yes

    Definitely No

    Easily. If Beck had the intuition and resources of the FBI, he would have beaten them to the punch. Being an admirer does not stop a rush-to-judgment entertainer from ranting about the horrors MLK would unleash.

    Of course, he was. Let me speak for MLK in his absence, when I give you the finger.
