Glenn Beck's Threats toward Jim Wallis

Well, Reverend Jim Wallis sent a non-confrontational letter to Glenn Beck objecting to Beck's condemnation of "social justice" and inviting the talk show host to a constructive, Christian dialogue.

Here's Beck's response, via radio:
So you go ahead and you continue to do your protest thing, and that’s great. I love it. But just know — the hammer is coming, because little do you know, for eight weeks, we’ve been compiling information on you, your cute little organization, and all the other cute little people that are with you. And when the hammer comes, it’s going to be hammering hard and all through the night, over and over…It’s weird how people all over the world have been sending me stuff. It’s weird that way, Jimmy.
Wallis remains committed to dialogue.  As one Media Matters reader expressed about Beck's radio response, "That last one minute or so is extremely unsettling. Creepy-voiced threats and blatant promises of reprisal: who is in support of this? Is there no one listening at Goldline?"

Sweet Jesus, Beck.  You really do need a hug.
