Apparently Glenn Beck, champion of such gems as:
“This president [Obama] I think has exposed himself over and over again as a guy who has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture….I’m not saying he doesn’t like white people, I’m saying he has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist.”
“I beg you, look for the words ‘social justice’ or ‘economic justice’ on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you can.”
“Good for you, you have a heart, you can be a liberal. Now, couple your heart with your brain, and you can be a conservative.”
… decided to throw a rally at the same spot as Martin Luther King Jr. Apparently a few hundred thousand people showed up. I wonder who sponsored it?
Apparently it was “non-political,” even though it was headlined by a bunch of Republicans. Instead of being political, it was instead a tribute to the Christian faith and the military.
Now there is lots to say about Glenn Beck and Fox News, but I am going to restrict myself to this one point.
Christian faith … and … the military.
I wonder if any of these people have actually read the words of Jesus Christ?
I’ve never met the man, but I’m pretty sure “The Prince of Peace” is not so big on trillions of dollars spent on war instead of love. I could be wrong though.
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
“It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God.”
I’m continually impressed by how effective this crew of greedy, power hungry, egotistical bastards are at accusing the other side of the very things they are guilty of. I take comfort in the fact that, if they are in fact correct about Jesus Christ being the son of God, he is going to be so terribly upset with them for spreading anger and hatred in his name.
