Here's a 1967 Flashback: "Gov. Romney Would Quit Church For Social Justice"

angry imagesHere's a 1967 Flashback: ‘Gov. Romney Would Quit Church For Social Justice’. Faux News Mormon Glenn Beck warned his listeners to “run as fast as you can” if their church preached “social justice,” claiming it is a “perversion of the Gospel.” In 1967, Michigan Gov. George Romney — father of Mitt — was the most prominent Mormon politician in the land, seeking the Republican nomination for president. Gov. George Romney, back in 1967, considered social justice a core tenet of his faith. That year, Michigan Gov. George Romney said he would leave his church if it ever tried to prevent him from working for the elimination of social injustices and racial discrimination.  Of course that was back in the days of rational Republicans.

In Strange News...Birthers Beware! Hawaii may start ignoring your repeated attempts for proof that President Barack Obama was born here. As the state is overwhelmed by e-mails seeking Obama's birth certificate, the state House Judiciary Committee heard a bill Tuesday permitting government officials to ignore people who won't give up.

Thom,
Your report is incomplete, misleading, and, therefore, a lie. Here's what he actually said: "Leave your church" if it "starts to preach social and economic justice, especially through the structure of a giant government." He said "Social justice and economic justice are code words." He was "referring to Jeremiah right's type church, a Black Liberation Theology or Marxism or church that's turned into a political arm." He agreed with the idea "that Christians should not merely give to the poor but also work to correct unjust conditions that keep people poor." He said this is what Jesus taught. And he said "Go find another parish", not another church, and "Go alert your bishop."
You can read his complete remarks at http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/198/37852/ I marvel at the ability liberals have to be consistently wrong.

The truly bizarre thing about the whole 'birther' movement: it is an established fact that McCain was born outside the United States.
I don't believe the 'birther' myth about Obama but by their logic Ralph Nader should be President now... Rofl

Exactly, and Thom just lives in his dream world devoid of reality as his minions scurry around to protect him from the truth. Just on Thom’s there is a couple of lies pointed out and of course the usual suspects {rodeo clowns} had to pop out at: http://www.thomhartmann.com/board/./viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4000

Hey Thom, your NLP is quite blatant here as you somehow felt it important to add the adjective of “Mormon”. Well I suggest that if you want to add adjectives to people’s names then add “BLT believer” to Obama as in a counter argument: Barack Obama’s Black Liberation Theology

As far as “Faux news”, you certainly are one to throw rocks, right Thom?
Barack Obama’s Black Liberation Theology

PS: SueN, bored yet??? Why not discuss the issues and not the personalities????

America's Chief Grifter Strikes Again

Thom plus logo Trump says he is going to boost unemployment payments by $400, stop evictions, cut payroll taxes, and extend student loan relief.

In fact, these are all lies. As usual, it's a new con job, a grift from our grifter-in-chief.
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
