Sojourners Urge Christians to Stop Watching Beck

glenn-beck2.jpgFNC’s Glenn Beck has upset the Sojourners. They are angered by his recent comments that “communists are on the left, and the Nazis are on the right” but that “both subscribe to one philosophy … social justice.” (Some may note that Beck, on the day after his “I wasted your time” interview with Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.), referred to himself as “fatty fat fat” and ate his favorite fried apple pie on air. He was hilariously venting about a proposal to ban salt from New York restaurants and anyone otherwise telling him what he should eat).

Be that as it may, Rev. Jim Wallis of Sojourners, a vocal network of progressive Christians in the U.S., is calling on Christians to stop watching the show and send their petition directly to Beck.
