Glenn Beck Under Fire

Some Christian groups are taking issue with comments made by radio talk show host and Fox commentator Glenn Beck. On his March 2 radio show, he told listeners:
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. Now, am I advising people to leave their church? Yes!
Later on his television show Beck said "social justice" was the one common rallying cry of both Nazis and Communists because they both want totalitarian government.

Beck now denies he has advised people to leave churches because they talked about social justice:
No, no, no. Didn't say that. I said if they are basing their religion on social justice. Social justice and economic justice are code words. Look for those code words, and then ask your church, 'What do you mean by that? What is that?' Because they're code words. And don't be sucked into that," said Beck.
