Very nice post from Tim Fernholz at TAPPED.
Why [Glen] Beck would make such a huge mistake reveals his superficial approach to faith -- he cares more about politics than an authentic religious experience. His dislike of social justice talk mimics that of some -- though certainly not all -- conservative Christian religious figures. It stems from a certain obsession with the "thou shall nots," simply because it's much easier for people with a political agenda to stress prohibitions, archaic and otherwise, rather than the pro-active approach mandated by many belief systems that asks you to change others' circumstances.
Illuminating, as they say.
