You can read and listen to the entire thing here, but Glenn spouts idiotic conspiracy theories that only those who wear ten foil hats and wait for the rapture by aliens from Planet 3145a would believe. He says,
Where I go to church, there are members that preach social justice as members–my faith doesn’t–but the members preach social justice all the time. It is a perversion of the gospel. … You want to help out? You help out. It changes you. That’s what the gospel is all about: You.
No, the Gospel is not about the individual, Glenn. If you listen to him to you know, actually listen to him, then you are blackening your soul and while I couldn’t add it to the list of biblical sins, just yet, I am sure that at the very least, it is unChristian.
And yes, Glenn, even your church teaches social justice.
The LDS have “a vision of a different world, a world where injustice and oppression, poverty and ignorance would be dispelled and a world where men and women would be brothers and sisters” (Alexander B. Morrison, in Church News [14 Oct. 1995]: 4).
According to an LDS organization,
LDS scripture and prophetic teaching speak out strongly for social justice: for peace, equality, democracy, human rights, and wise stewardship of the earth’s resources. Latter-day Saints are enjoined to “plead the cause of the poor and the needy” (D&C 124:75) and to work towards a society in which “there [are] no poor among [us]” (Moses 7:18). We are challenged to “renounce war and proclaim peace” (D&C 98:16). The Book of Mormon teaches that “there should be an equality among all” (Mosiah 27:3) and calls us to stand against racism, gender inequity, and injustice on the principle that “black and white, bond and free, male and female;…all are alike unto God” (2 Nephi 26:33). The scriptures commend democracy, constitutional law, and human rights (Mosiah 29:26; D&C 98:5; D&C 101:77), while speaking harshly against inequity, exploitation, oppression, and violence (2 Nephi 20:1-2; 3 Nephi 24:5; D&C 38:26; Moses 8:28). Scripture teaches us that we are stewards of the earth and its resources, which should be used “with judgment, not to excess” (D&C 59:20).
Kent P. Jackson, associate dean of religion at Brigham Young University, said in an interview:
“My own experience as a believing Latter-day Saint over the course of 60 years is that I have seen social justice in practice in every L.D.S. congregation I’ve been in. People endeavor with all of our frailties and shortcomings to love one another and to lift up other people. So if that’s Beck’s definition of social justice, he and I are definitely not on the same team.”
I will tell you this, though, that the next time the missionaries come to my door, the conversation will be short.
“Hello, we are from the Church of -”
“Wait, before you go on, I’ve got two words”
If you need a lesson in social justice, read Amos. The Gospels. The bible. The entire bible.
But I know the LORD will help those they persecute; he will give justice to the poor. (Psa 140:12 NLT)
I am not Mormon, nor am I promoting Mormonism, but Glenn is a moron (play on sounds there) and fails to understand even his own dogma and leaders.
