Young simply wishes to be wealthy and well known. That’s why he invited Glenn Beck to speak to his cult.
A popular megachurch minister in Texas has come under fire for inviting radio host and author Glenn Beck to speak at his church as part of an Independence Day celebration.
Ed Young of the multi-site Fellowship Church invited Beck, an outspoken Mormon, to speak during all of his Sunday services today as part of Young’s Freedom Experience event. Beck’s presentations were advertised on the church website as “a message of hope and history as we look to honor those who have provided us with our freedom.”
Young and his cult aren’t even pretending to be a Christian Congregation anymore.
Andy Boyd, a spokesman for Fellowship Church, said that Beck was invited since he is a known American historian, and also because the he has “shown his love for God in many ways.”
Bahahahahahahahahaha! Historian!!!! HA. David Barton is as much a ‘historian’ as Beck. But aside from that, worship isn’t about honoring a country, it’s about honoring God. And Young’s cult allows it.
It should be ashamed that it ever considered publishing anything by one of modern America’s most deceptive misleading pseudo-historians. Others may think Nelson has shown moral courage in changing its mind. I don’t I think if they had really had moral courage they would have told him from the start that they weren’t interested in his badly researched rubbish. Instead, they changed course only when public outcry became too loud to ignore. That isn’t courage, it’s cowardice.
David Barton, president of the WallBuilders organization and a frequent guest on Glenn Beck’s broadcasts, is one of America’s most popular Christian history writers. Liberal critics have long accused Barton of misinterpretations and errors, and readers of the History News Network recently voted a new Barton book, The Jefferson Lies, as the “Least Credible History Book in Print.” But now some conservative Christian scholars are publicly questioning Barton’s work, too.
The guy doesn’t know jack about American history. He’s an ignorant fraud. A pseudo-scholar who simply intentionally or ignorantly distorted the facts and distorts the facts to make them fit his convoluted insane ideology. Christian scholars who have supported him have supported a lie. And those who have been silent should be ashamed of themselves, cowed to cowardice for fear of what? And Thomas Nelson… how sad that it even ever thought it a good idea to put Barton’s nonsense into print.
With thanks to Joel Watts for pointing the story out (as I’m as disinclined to watch the news for Barton as I am to scan the news for Beck).
The Limbaugh advertising stampede is now officially an exodus. What was “only” 45 companies listed last week has expanded into a mass migration of 141 advertisers, according to an internal Premiere Radio Networks memo obtained by the Traffic Directors Guild of America. The memo lists 96 national companies that “specifically asked” not to have their ads play during the Rush Limbaugh Show—91 of them new additions to the list.
The companies also asked that their ads not play on shows hosted by other right-wing shock jocks, including Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Michael Savage,ThinkProgress reports. Among those in the advertising stampede:
- American Express
- US Army
- US Postal Service
And the list goes on.
When Limbaugh has 0 advertisers except for Westboro Baptist, the North American Taliban Society, and the Harold Camping Ministry Center, then we’ll know that American business has some sense.
The world isn’t about to end, it has ended and we’ve all been plunged into purgatory where, quite fittingly for purgatory, Glenn Beck will host a children’s show.
It’s not Nick News, The Electric Company or even the Magic Treehouse. Starting next Monday, talk show host Glenn Beck hopes to educate a young audience with his new children’s program, Liberty Treehouse. As he told Politico, his kids’ show “will not only entertain children and young adults, but it will respect them and their knowledge and passion for history, art, science and current events.”
What idiot network will air this moronic Dreck? Guess.
Anyway, we’re all clearly dead and being purged for our iniquities (as the Papists would like us to believe because, for them, Jesus is insufficient).
I believe Glenn Beck is either mentally unstable or simply evil. Or perhaps a mixture of both. Otherwise, he couldn’t, he wouldn’t say what he has in fact said.
On his radio show today Glenn Beck compared a Labour Party youth camp where a gunman killed scores of young people to the Hitler Youth, but failed to mention that his own 9/12 Project ran a similar summer camp this year. Here is the audio from Media Matters.
He’s truly, truly a sick and evil man. An honest to goodness reprobate and a sorry and sad excuse for a human being. I’m going to find out who sponsors this imbecile’s radio show and make sure I never spend another penny with them again.

Glenn Beck’s hate speech has prompted his aluminum foil followers to threaten with death one of the objects of Beck’s disdain.
A campaign has begun to defend a longtime professor and activist from the frequent attacks of Glenn Beck—and the death threats that the attacks have brought with them. Frances Fox Piven, a 78-year-old professor and political theorist, has been the subject of harsh criticism by Beck for years. Now, the Center for Constitutional Rights has written a letter to Roger Ailes, CEO of Fox News, asking for his “immediate help in stopping false accusations by Glenn Beck that are putting Professor Piven in danger.”
Nice work Beck. If the Prof ends up dead I hope you’re put on trial for inciting violence and accessory to murder. Then you and your witless sycophant can spend the rest of your lives in the obscurity of a prison cell. A just fate.
If Glenn Beck hasn’t met a half-man-half-monkey yet, he didn’t get out much during his rally. There was more knuckle dragging on the National Mall that day than the National Zoo… about 89,000 more. And I find it odd that Sarah Palin can see November from her house but she couldn’t see a teen pregnancy coming if her life depended on it. Maybe if she spent more time at her house rather than at Tea Party rallies, one of her children might actually graduate from those abstinence only classes with a passing grade. – Helen and Margaret
Glenn 'the heretic' Beck
You’re doing nothing other than hearing a false Gospel and embracing it and its exponent. And you need to know it, and stop it. And that’s not me, that’s Scripture. Read it for yourself-
εἴ τις ἔρχεται πρὸς ὑμᾶς καὶ ταύτην τὴν διδαχὴν οὐ φέρει, μὴ λαμβάνετε αὐτὸν εἰς οἰκίαν καὶ χαίρειν αὐτῷ μὴ λέγετε. ὁ λέγων γὰρ αὐτῷ χαίρειν κοινωνεῖ τοῖς ἔργοις αὐτοῦ τοῖς πονηροῖς. 2 John 10-11.
Did you get that? If you welcome false teachers into your home you become partners in their evil. And make no mistake, Glenn Beck is a heretic.
In one of his first appearances on Fox News, Glenn Beck sent a coded message to the nation’s six million Mormons — or at least those Mormons who believe in what the Latter-day Saints call “the White Horse Prophecy.” “We are at the place where the Constitution hangs in the balance,” Beck told Bill O’Reilly on November 14, 2008, just after President Obama’s election. “I feel the Constitution is hanging in the balance right now, hanging by a thread unless the good Americans wake up.” The Constitution is hanging by a thread.
Beck is nothing other than a preacher of a false Gospel in coded Mormon language and Evangelicals who lap it up like water are really just lapping up gleefully the vomit of heretical reprobation. Why? Because Mormonism isn’t Christianity. Christians who follow Beck simply because they’ve bought into his politics should know one thing: they have turned their backs on their faith in order to follow politics.
After being called on a white lie he told during his Restoring Honor rally, Glenn Beck admitted Thursday that he stretched the truth because he “thought it would be a little easier.” Beck had claimed that he held George Washington’s handwritten first Inaugural Address in his hands at the National Archives, but a spokeswoman at the institution said he did no such thing. Keith Olbermann, Ed Schultz and others called him out for the fabrication. Thursday on his radio show, Beck copped to the lie. “I thought it would be a little easier in the speech,” Beck said…
Blah. Who cares what his explanation is. He’s a deceiver. All those Evangelicals hitching their wagon to the Mormon deceiver deserve all the side-ways glances they get.
