    Their website reads like the front page of the DailyKos. I suspect that the churches belong to the NCOC are examples of what Beck was talking about.
    As a conservative, I have a hard time believing that you would really want to start a comparison between liberal and conservative churches out their "pushing a political agenda". Let's see off the top, we have the Christian Coalition, Focus on the Family, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Family Research Council, Rev. D. James Kennedy, etc. all pushing their agenda to the hard right with Republicans visiting them for support and endorsement often. It is hilarious that Beck is concerned about "liberal" churches pushing an agenda given the history of the past 30 years.

    So... we had PP spin off so that political wing-nuts would not spew on a dog-training forum. (and they still do occasionally.)

    So...? What should Chris do now?

    Spin off another sub-forum where socio, politico, religiousity can be discussed, debated and argued, and posters are free to abuse one another?

    I vehemently oppose those who wish to speak prophetical, regardless of their church, be it christian or islam.

    Make it stop regards,

    Who is Glen Beck? Good question. Talk about "dumbing down".

I don't think you'll find me defending churches/religious organizations that are politically active. That said, all of those organizations you mention are a speck compared to the United Council of Churches and the 45 million members who contribute (most unknowingly, likely) million to a host of liberal causes. It is hilarious that Beck is concerned about "liberal" churches pushing an agenda given the history of the past 30 years. Kudos for recognizing it for what it is instead of parrotting the other moonbats (and the starter of this thread).
    The National Council of Churches is definately a third rail that nobody on the right wants to talk about for fear of being demagogoued (although interestingly enough, it's socially acceptable to attack any religous org. that is right leaning). Beck took the first swing. Good for him. Pretty ballsy. If one is looking for cesspools of liberal idealogy then the National Council of Churches is a good place to start. I'm sure that the vast majority of the members of the United Methodists, The Episcopal Church and The Presbyterian Church (USA) (among others) have no earthly idea that a portion of their tithings is funding leftists causes via the National Council of Churches.

    He mentioned the catholic church specifically. Do you really think that is a pillar of wild liberalism? Come on Hew, you're smarter than that. This wasn't Beck pushing a conservative agenda, this was beck pushing beck. Got us talking about him, didn't it? I would not accuse beck of being stupid, but he's so full of himself, those people usually hang themselves once they gather enough rope.

    I'm not saying I agree with the following, but I bet those comments will have repercussions that reach all the way to Mitt Romney, come the 2012 season.

    That's an interesting point. Yeah, I bet Mitt ain't too happy. But then most folks probably aren't aware that Beck is a Mormon except those that really like him or really hate him.
