FPC Elizabethton Is All About Social Justice, Mr. Beck

Glenn Beck recently offered spiritual advice to his listeners:

"I beg you, look for the words social justice or economic justice on your church website. If you find it run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words....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?...If it is my church I am alerting the church authorities, "Excuse me? What is this social justice thing?" And if they say, "Yeah, we're all in that social justice thing," I'm in the wrong place.

Listen to his babble.

He also advised church members to turn your social justice preacher into the authorities. Make it easy on yourself. Turn yourself in. I did.
First Presbyterian Church of Elizabethton, TN, is a community and congregation with 250 members that celebrates diversity, pursues and supports social and ecological justice for all peoples and Earth, and worships God's grace through ritual, sacrament, and creative services.
Oops. Run, Mr. Beck, Run!!


  1. He's going to tell Mormon Jesus on you for being progressive.

  2. "OUR MINISTRY PURPOSE: Northside Presbyterian Church is a faith community focused on glorifying God by being:

    Welcoming in worship
    Inclusive by intention
    Joyful in doing justice
    Liberal in Love"

    And our charge that we say at the end of every service is Luke 4:18-19.

    I turned myself in.

  3. Why does your church hate America, Alan?

  4. LOL!

    Because hating the Baby Jesus just wasn't enough for us.
