Beck: 'We're A Society That Has Literally Gone Insane'

Remember last month when Glenn Beck was so heavy-hearted over the state of the nation that he began citing the Book of Mormon as he solemnly warned his audience that the Last Days were rapidly approaching ... but then he went to Washington, DC to speak at a Tea Party rally and God showed up and miraculously rejuvenated Beck who suddenly understood everything and eagerly declared "I'm back!"

Well, judging by his remarks last night, there is no joy in Beckville any more as he is back to declaring that "we're at the Beginning of Days."

And you know what set Beck off this time?  This video, posted on his The Blaze website, of a woman throwing a tantrum because her husband wouldn't take her to the lake.

To Beck, this wasn't just a video of some woman having a meltdown but was actually another road sign highlighting everything that is wrong with this country, prompting him to declare that God had given us "sacred ground" upon which to build the United States and "we have defiled it, we have debased it, we have broken the covenant" as we continue to refuse to turn to God, for which we will suffer the consequences.

"We're a society that has literally gone insane," Beck said, warning that if we do not turn back to God "humanity doesn't survive":

Staver: SCOTUS DOMA Ruling Is Like Trying To Suspend The Law Of Gravity

On today's "Faith and Freedom Radio" broadcast, Mat Staver continued to directly compare the Supreme Court's recent ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act to the Dred Scott ruling and other egregious court decisions from the past, adding that the DOMA decision is like the court ruling that it was going to suspend the laws of gravity.

"There are certain natural laws," Staver declared, "the laws of gravity are certainly natural laws. The natural created order of men and women, husbands and wives, is part of the natural created order. You may want some other union but you cannot create marriage into something that it is incapable of being":

Right Wing Leftovers - 7/23/13

  • Oh good, Christine O'Donnell is thinking of making another run for the Senate.
  • Apparently, Rep. Peter King is now thinking of running for president solely because some reporter from Newsmax convinced him that it is a good idea.
  • Jennifer LeClair prays that Lady Gaga will start "going gaga over Jesus and used her celebrity for His glory, millions would stop buying immoral filth and start singing songs to God."
  • Michael Brown tells closeted and married gay men that "commitment to love your wife and your children trumps your sexual desires and romantic attractions, and to destroy your family for the sake of those desires is, indeed, 'the most selfish thing in the world.'"
  • Is any surprised that Ken Cuccinelli thinks that people ought to be prosecuted for adultery?
  • Finally, do you know what this country needs? "A Congress full of Rep. Gohmerts."

Bryan Fischer: Demon Hunter

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer dedicated an entire segment to recounting some of the various run-ins he has had with demonic spirits and how he cleansed them from his home, cleansed his and other children who were being attacked by them, and even fought one off that grabbed him while he slept.

Inspired by a story in The Blaze today about the new horror film "The Conjuring" and the supposedly true story that inspired it, Fischer recounted how he once delivered a young girl from a demon that was tormenting her and ordering her to be disobedient to her parents under threat that the demon would otherwise kill them.

But it was not just others that Fischer rescued, as he also was once personally attacked by a spirit in the middle of the night.  Apparently, this spirit had been sent out to harm him by a coven of local witches and it grabbed him by the ankle as he slept and tried to pull him from his bed until he was able to rebuke it in the name of Jesus and drive it away:

Corsi: Gay Marriage Will Lead To Pedophilia And Hate Crimes Charges Against Pastors

Last week, the Eagle Forum hosted its annual Collegians Summit in Washington, DC at which several members of Congress spoke, as did WND's leading Birther and resident crackpot Jerome Corsi, who warned the students in attendance that gay marriage will lead to polygamy and pedophilia that will turn America into a modern-day version of pagan Rome.

Corsi went on to warn that once gay marriage is established as constitutional, then it will only be a matter of time before that religious leaders will be dragged out of their pulpits and charged with a hate crime for daring to preach against homosexuality:

Barton: Glenn Beck Is A Christian Who Identifies As Mormon Simply Out Of Loyalty

It has been no secret that there have been some among the Religious Right who have raised concerns about the prominent role that Glenn Beck has been playing within the movement because he is a practitioner of the Mormon faith.  And given David Barton's close ties to Beck, Barton has also received criticism for defending Beck, often by claiming that if you judge Beck simply by the "fruits" of his works and not his label, he is really a Christian.

While Beck himself openly embraces his Mormon faith and has even dedicated entire programs to defending it, Barton continues to insist that Beck is really just a Mormon in name only, and he only does that because he has a loyalty to the church for helping him overcome with problems with alcohol.

As Barton explained to Steve Deace last week, individual Mormons can go to Heaven and Beck really "became a Christian back when he was in Alcoholics Anonymous" but identifies as a Mormon today only "because he has a loyalty to them":

They see the label Mormon and they say "ah, I know what that is." No you don't.  To say a Mormon can't go to Heaven is like saying every Baptist is going to Heaven. What you have to look at is individuals. And individuals often don't believe what the rest of the of the group does.

Now, in the case of Glenn - and I'm not going to speak for Glenn, I'll just speak for what I know about him - Glenn became a Christian back when he was in Alcoholics Anonymous, but when he was up in New England and laying on the floor, curled up, trying to get withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, no Christians reach out to him; it was the Mormon Church that took him under its arm and said 'hey, let us help you.' And they just loved on him and they just held him and he's got a loyalty to them because they're the people who reached out for him when he really needed help.

So people get stuck over what the label is and my position has been very simple; if I walk up to a tree and it says I'm a banana tree but I keep seeing apples, what do I go by? The label or what I see of the fruit?

And so people again keep getting caught up over labels, but hey, back off the labels, judge the fruit.  And there's going to be things we disagree with and I think you analysis was good is that it's in development.  You know, you look at where he was three years ago and where he is now; a world of difference.

Beck: Obama Is 'An Expert On The Most Divisive Form Of Politics In Existence Today'

Glenn Beck continued his attack on President Obama for his remarks regarding the verdict in the Trayvon Martin murder trial on his television program last night by rather ironically blasting Obama for dividing the nation by placing people "in little boxes and then convincing those people that you're only in that box because of those people over there; they're the cause of all of your problems."

Ummm, that pretty much sums up the basic philosophy that drives Beck's entire media empire, doesn't it?

For Beck, the fact that Obama delivered his remarks without the use of a teleprompter was simply further proof that racial politics is Obama's "life long passion," which is why he "is an expert on the most divisive form of politics in existence today."

"I'm sorry, but I've never seen a leader behave this way, ever," Beck remarked. "Leaders don't blame people. Leaders don't lie for their own personal gain; crooks do."

Well, actually, some leader do, Beck explained ... socialist leaders like Che Guevara:
