Is “social justice” a Christian code-word for “communism and Nazism”? Fox News’s Glenn Beck says so, and evangelical leaders are striking back

Fox News personality Glenn Beck has told his viewers to leave Christian churches that preach social justice. Now evangelical leaders are striking back, with Jim Wallis leading the way.

What do you think? Is there a place in the preaching and life of the church for social justice? Is correcting social inequities part of the “good news” of the gospel?
