This is for the misguided, and frankly completely baffling individuals (you know who you are, because I have corresponded with you from time to time), who continue to patronize Glenn Beck and listen to his hateful garbage. I am interested in how you can justify Beck’s hateful rants, noted here, his attack on the President’s 11-year old daughter, his constant and incessant lies, and as the anniversary of 9/11 approaches, this expression of hatred for the 9/11 families (just “ten of them,” as if in this sick punk’s brain hating just a few, not all 3,000, is OK), and calling the predominantly black and poor New Orleans victims of Hurricane Katrina, “scumbags.”
You do not have to be a psychologist or psychiatrist to understand that this is a very sick individual; a mentally ill person. Beck’s dripping contempt and hatred for poor black people and for victims of atrocities is illuminating. It provides a glimpse into his tortured, sick soul, for whom the poor are to blame for poverty, and the 9/11 families, the ones he hates, are imposing on his comfortable millionaire’s life. Victims, in general, are to be despised for their weakness, which he believes they brought on themselves. This is an individual who is incapable of compassion, empathy, or love for his fellow human beings: All primary Christian values which he pretends to uphold. This false prophet’s Christian values are like those of Adolf Hitler, who said:
We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit ... We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theater, and in the press—in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during the past ... [few] years.Does this sound at all familiar to you, Beck fans? Try this. Substitute the attribution lines for simply “Glenn Beck” and tell me what you see: Quotations from Adolf Hitler, or words spoken by Glenn Beck every single day on his radio and TV shows.

Secular schools can never be tolerated because such schools have no religious instruction, and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith.
