"During an interview on "Fox News Sunday," which was filmed after Saturday's rally, Beck claimed that Obama "is a guy who understands the world through liberation theology, which is oppressor-and-victim."
"People aren't recognizing his version of Christianity," Beck added.
Beck's attacks represent a continuing attempt to characterize Obama as a radical, an approach that has prompted anxiety among some Republicans, who worry that Beck's rhetoric could backfire. The White House has all but ignored his accusations, but some Democrats have pointed to the Fox News host to portray Republicans as extreme and out of touch.
Beck made the remarks in answer to a question about his previous accusation that Obama was a "racist" who has "a deep-seated hatred for white people." He contended that that statement "was not accurate" and that he had "miscast" Obama's religious beliefs as racism." Washpost
We haven't had a religious war here (SST) yet. "Now's the time and now's the hour." Beck says that Obama is a false Christian because he is saturated in "liberation theology" which he says is really Marxism in Christian clothing. Well, maybe that is so, or maybe not.
In the same interview, he does say that a lot of Christians do not consider him (Beck) to be a Christian because he is a Mormon. Christianity is generally understood to be a religion that is monotheistic within the context of a belief in the trinity of persons in the one God. (I know that this kind of discussion is meaningless to atheists) The Mormon religion is not monotheistic. Nor is it trinitarian. For me, a necessary corollary of that theology is that the Latter Day Saints Church is Christian only by its own definition of Christianity.
One can fairly ask, who is Glen Beck to question Obama's religious identity as a Christian? Moreover, Romney, if nominated is probably not electable in a national election because of the reaction of many "orthodox" Christians to the LDS Church. Is that fair? No. Is it true? Probably so. plhttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/08/29/AR2010082903405.html
