The Rev. Jim Wallis, who leads the Christian social justice group "Sojourners" in Washington, D.C., took strong offense to Beck's comments.

Wallis has begun a "Tell Glenn Beck: I'm a Social Justice Christian" campaign on his Web site, www.sojo.net.

"Glenn Beck recently told his listeners to leave any church that teaches social justice, and to report its pastor to church authorities," Wallis wrote. "Since Sojourners' mission is 'to articulate the biblical call to social justice,' we thought we'd better turn ourselves in. But before reporting to any church hierarchy, we're going to report ourselves to Glenn Beck."
