He went on to say that Americans should be skeptical of religious leaders who are "basing their religion on social justice," and explained his fear that concern for social justice is a problem "infecting all" faith traditions.

But in any case, what he has said attacks the very heart of our Christian faith, and Christians should no longer watch his show."
