*The White House has decided to address the most recent claims of Fox News Channel Glenn Beck that President Obama is a follower of “liberation theology.”
As previously reported, Beck said this form of Christianity is all about “oppressors” and “victims.”
At Thursday’s White House press briefing, Obama’s press secretary Robert Gibbs was asked about Beck’s assertions.
“People are entitled to their own opinion, as ill-informed as it may be,” Gibbs told reporters. “But they’re not entitled to their own facts.”
Gibbs called Obama a “committed, mainstream Christian” and said he had “no evidence that would guide me as to what Glenn Beck would have any genuine knowledge as to what the president does or does not believe.”
“I can only imagine where Mr. Beck conjured that from,” he said.
