This prompted outrage from some Christian bloggers such as the Rev. Jim Wallis, leader of a Christian social justice organization, who blogged "What he has said attacks the very heart of our Christian faith, and Christians should no longer watch his show.” [132][133] Beck later clarified that he meant that if confronted with a Black liberation theology church such that of Rev Jeremiah Wright, one should find another parish, and noted that Wallis had served as a spiritual adviser to President Obama.[134]
In his keynote speech at the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Beck "stirred controversy within conservative ranks" when he took pains to criticize the Republican Party as "addicted to spending and big government."[43] As a result, fellow conservative radio host Mark Levin told Beck to "stop dividing us" and "stop acting like a clown", while Republican icon Rush Limbaugh questioned why "the only people who can stop Obama should be excoriated for being just as bad."[43]
