Evangelicals, conservatives, libertarians, conservatarians, and patriots must decide which train to get on because they can’t be aboard both at the same time.

The purpose of the “Glenn Beck Show” is entertainment, and the joke’s on those who take Glenn Beck seriously.

According to a 2010 USA feature story, “Don’t judge Beck by his cover,” Beck is not a registered Republican. In fact he accuses Ronald Reagan of selling out the American people.

Although Beck masquerades as a grass roots champion of conservative values and libertarian dissent, he’s a showman and a “rodeo clown,” a Mormon entertainer who satirizes politics and criticizes society.

Like, Bufo Bill O’Reilly, his brother from another mother, Beck uses populist rhetoric and watered-down patriotism to attract patriots and evangelical Christians to his program.

He sells books and subscriptions for his internet TV program, and he promotes his internet news site “The Blaze” for ad revenues.

Sadly, too many patriots and evangelicals have deluded themselves into believing that Beck is a kindred spirit with an elaborate strategy for saving America.

The truth is Beck is a product of an intellectually-challenged generation of gutless political illiterates who are desperate for someone to lead them and tell them what to think.

He’s not a patriot or an intellectual; in fact, he’s not even a “self-made man.” Beck is famous because of his powerful connections in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was LDS members who dried him out, resurrected his career, and set him up as a superstar in the conservative movement.

American patriots and evangelicals have not only made this Mormon a personal fortune, but they’ve also helped him grow the cult and promote a false gospel.


Glenn Beck Is a Mormon Entertainer, Nothing More

The two-hour show aired Tuesday, November 12, 2013. TMR was broadcast live M-F from 10:00 am – noon on channel 2.


God only knows if right-thinking people will stop being intellectually lazy and begin to think for themselves instead of listening to Glenn Beck for what to think.

People who love America don’t put money ahead of their country and hire Democrats who support the progressive agenda, no matter how competent. Yet Beck surrounds himself with leftist Democrats.

Leftist Democrat Liz Julis is the editor of Beck’s Fusion magazine; Betsy Morgan, former CEO of the Huffington Post, former Hillary Rodham Clinton fundraiser, and former CBS News employee, runs his website, The Blaze, and Matt Hiltzik, Democrat power player who helped elect Hillary Rodham Clinton to the U.S. Senate, is Beck’s personal publicist.

After Obama was elected in 2008, Beck told CBS News’ Katie Kouric that a McCain presidency would have been worse for the country.

“John McCain would have been worse for the country than Barack Obama. McCain is this weird progressive like Theodore Roosevelt was,” Beck said.

To which Mark Levin responded, “McCain is no conservative … but to say that he would be worse than a president who’s a Marxist … is mindless.”

Not only did the right-wing values-crusader say that the Democrat Obama was better for the nation than the Republican McCain, he has routinely disparaged Republicans and the country’s two-party system, which served only to undermine the Republican Party and aid the Democrat Party.

Bill Bennett has rightly said that “there is a difference between the Republican and Democratic parties. To ignore these differences, or propagate the myth that they don’t exist, is not only discouraging, it is dangerous.”

Beck proudly claims to be non-partisan with no vested interest in helping Republicans return to power. Alexander Zaitchik was right to pen that Beck is “A Savvy Fraud Who Knows Just How to Please His Audience of Conservative Suckers.”

It’s an irony almost too mind-boggling to comprehend to think that someone who surrounds himself with leftist Democrats, thinks George Clooney is “a good, honest man,” and believes that people cause global warming has made millions off patriotic evangelicals and conservatives who desperately want to preserve their republic.

Scott Lively, A One-Eyed Man in the Land of the Blind

By Jerry A. Kane

Last week the Rev. Scott Lively, an independent candidate for Governor of Massachusetts, joined seven other declared candidates in the state’s first gubernatorial forum on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues at the Boston Public Library.

Rather than join in with the others in the hallelujah “pro-gay” chorus, Lively addressed homosexual behaviors from a medical, sociological, and biblical viewpoint. Lively’s common sense language left politicians and audience members startled like they’d been slapped in the face with some cheap aftershave.

At times Lively was interrupted by grunts and guffaws from disgruntled audience members and rude and snide comments from the candidates, yet their mockery, scorn, and hostility did not deter him. He presented a clinic on how to fight back against hostility and overwhelming odds. He kept his composure and conveyed his message.

When it was over, Lively stood alone as the only independent thinker among the group of me-too candidates parroting gaystapo talking points. As one reporter put it, “Most of the candidates for governor had the same message … Lively was the forum’s outlier. He lived up to his last name …”

For too long now, conservative politicians and pro-family leaders have been reluctant to tell the truth about homosexuality. When they are confronted with political correctness, they back peddle and compromise rather than stand tall and fight on principles.

All too often they collapse under the pressure and run away instead of standing up to the name-calling and engaging the battle. It’s obvious they’re controlled by fear, but what’s sad is that they seem to be the only ones who don’t know it.

If nothing else, Lively has shown that repeating truths forcefully and fearlessly is the only way to defeat a homosexual movement built on lies, deceit, and disinformation.

In last week’s Massachusetts candidate forum, the Rev. Scott Lively proved he’s more than just some run-of-the-mill independent candidate for governor; he’s the proverbial one-eyed man in the land of the blind. Whether or not he’s made king is another matter altogether.

Ronald Reagan spent most of his career challenging reigning Republicans and fighting their orthodoxy. He wasn’t a part of the Nixonian/GOP establishment.

Reagan’s eleventh commandment never meant Republicans should not criticize fellow Republicans over ideology or philosophy. When Republicans don’t stand for principles, Democrats celebrate.

The pope’s critical comments last year about capitalism and his condemnation of “the economy of exclusion and inequality” have energized America’s progressive Catholics.

Hussein Obama said he was “hugely impressed” by Francis’s call for the Church to stop its obsession with debating the teachings on abortion, homosexual marriage, and contraception.

The truth is Hussein and Francis are on the same page when it comes to wealth redistribution and social transformation.

Throughout history the intellectual tradition of Catholicism has been statist and hostile to free markets, property rights, and the separation of Church and State.

The problem today is too many evangelicals think the pope is a Christian leader and the Roman Catholic Church is just another Christian denomination.

And to make matters worse, the Vatican and Jesuit Order’s involvement in creating the New World Order is never mentioned in the same breath with the International Bankers, the Bilderberg group, the Illuminati, and Freemasons.

Police Interrogate Christian Grandmother for Homophobic Hatred

 

Criminalizing Christianity

By Jerry A. Kane

Anti-Christian bigotry is rife throughout the United Kingdom. Christians are targeted and persecuted for expressing their religious beliefs about homosexuality. The Racial and Religious Hatred Act passed in 2006 has given anti-Christian bigots the power to criminalize Christianity.

In July, Pauline Howe wrote a complaint letter to her local council about the verbal abuse she had received while handing out Christian leaflets at a homosexual pride parade in Norwich, England. Instead of the council sending a response acknowledging her complaint, she received a letter informing her that the duty of the local authority is “to eliminate discrimination of all kinds” and that she might be guilty of a homophobic hate crime.

The council’s deputy chief executive, Bridget Buttinger, responded threatening to prosecute the 67 year-old grandmother:

 “The content of your letter has been assessed as potentially being hate related because of the views you expressed towards people of a certain sexual orientation. Your details and details of the contents of your letter have been recorded as such and passed to the police.” [emphasis mine]

Later, two Norfolk police officers arrived at the crime scene, the retiree’s home, and took her to task for writing a “potentially hate-related” letter regarding homosexuals and homosexuality. In the letter, Howe wrote that the march was a “public display of indecency” and “offensive to God,” that homosexuals were sodomites and homosexuality had “contributed to the downfall of every empire,” and that “gay sex was a major cause of sexually transmitted infections.”

Howe, a minister’s wife, said that her comments were expressions of her Christian beliefs and not of hatred or homophobia as the police had thought. Having sufficiently stressed the inappropriateness of her word choice, the officers told Howe that she would not be prosecuted.

Howe said the police presence in her home was an unpleasant experience and made her feel threatened.

“Our freedoms as Bible believing Christians have just been squashed. We’re not allowed to express our Biblical, evangelical beliefs anymore without being frightened, quite frankly,” Howe added.

For almost a decade, Christians in England have been accused of the crime of homophobia for criticizing homosexual practices or advising abstinence from homosexual activity:

  • In 2008, Miguel Hayworth, a Christian street preacher in Manchester, was forcefully removed from the street, put in the back a police van, and questioned for over an hour following a complaint of homophobia.
  • In 2006, Stephen Green, a Christian campaigner, was arrested for handing out leaflets that contained biblical quotes about homosexuality at a gay pride festival in Cardiff. He was taken into custody, questioned, charged, and was awaiting trial when the case was dropped.
  • Also in 2006, the Archbishop of Glasgow defended traditional marriage and criticized civil partnerships in a church service, and a Member of the Scottish Parliament called upon the Strathclyde Police to investigate his remarks.
  • In 2005, author Lynette Burrows was a guest on a radio talk show and said that two homosexual men adopting a child would not be good for the child. Later, a police officer phoned telling her that a “homophobic incident” had been reported against her comments and that the police would keep a record of it.
  • Again in 2005, retirees Joe and Helen Roberts were interrogated by police for opposing their local council’s use of public money for gay rights’ projects.
  • In 2004, the Christian Union of the University of Cambridge was reported to the police for hosting an evangelistic meeting where the Dean of Sydney Cathedral spoke on the traditional biblical view of homosexuality.
  • In 2003, the Bishop of Chester, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Peter Forster, told a local newspaper that therapy had helped some homosexuals re-orient to heterosexuality. His remarks were considered a hate crime and the case was submitted for prosecution but later dropped.

The list is by no means exhaustive. Many Christians, usually evangelicals, have been interrogated, arrested, and charged with homophobia and hate crimes for daring to criticize homosexuality.  And unfortunately the trend of illiberal laws, which swept over Europe for the last ten years, have breached the great divide and will now blow unrestrained throughout the United States in the guise of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.  

This draconian legislation just signed into law October 28, 2009, by Brother O is similar to the United Kingdom’s Racial and Religious Hatred Act. And like its predecessor, the Matthew Shepard Act will make ridiculing Christians and their beliefs an acceptable form of bigotry. Gluttonous, lecherous bigots the likes of Jerrold Nadler and Barney Frank will garner the power to silence anyone who dares speak out for religious reasons against the practice of homosexuality, and they will do so brazenly without accountability, and in defiance of the people’s will.

The birthplace of political liberties and the home of the Magna Carta is arguably the most intrusive nanny state in the western world, but the Brits won’t hold that distinction for long. The land of opportunity and once proud safe haven for religious refugees will assuredly supplant it, and unlike the dubious decision from the Nobel Peace Prize committee, this distinction will be earned.
