Beck vs. The Theocrats

The Religious Right took notice of Glenn Beck’s call to prayer this last weekend. They’re all in favor of his right-wing agenda, but they’re not crazy about his brand of superstition.

Glenn Beck promotes a false gospel. However, many of his political ideas can help America.

Our country was founded on Judeo-Christian values. Mormonism is not a Christian denomination but a cult of Christianity.

The country needs to get back to the simplicity of the Bible. The reason our country is in bad shape is that ministers for the most part do not share the truth. Many endorse false gospels including Mormonism.

What’s really going on here has very little to do with “false gospels” or whether or not “Mormonism” is a cult. (We’re getting really close to Pot/Kettle territory here.) What the real issue is that the evangelicals see Mr. Beck horning in on their side of the street: “Hey, those are our pigeons you’re trying to pluck.”

HT to Steve.
