Glenn Beck has been trumpeting again about the persecution of the Christian Church.
Glenn – if there is any persecution of the Christian Church in the US it has been fomented by wack-a-doodles like you, who spew your special brand of hatred because it fills your pockets with greenbacks. I seriously doubt if even you are as nutty as you sound.
Not to say that you and all those other fake ‘family values’* spokespersons aren’t aided and abetted by the so called ‘liberal press’ and the decidedly off the cliff FOX so-called news, who have turned away from JOURNALISM to wallow in supermarket tabloid entertainment(?).
In our increasingly un-reality TV basted society, hatred sells high priced ad space to advertisers, who have no qualms about pushing an agenda that is unfit for human consumption. I guess those Compassionate Conservatives were just too compassionate for you.
“You’re going to see these 10,000 to 20,000 pastors begin to stand up,” Beck promised, “and say ‘it doesn’t matter if I lose my church, it doesn’t matter if I lose my building, it doesn’t matter if I lose my life, I will not sit down!'” (Source)
OK. You may have have legions of bigoted self-centered pastors who are afraid of change, though I would guess your numbers to be off by a factor of 10 to 100, but let me remind you of something.
For every Pastor you have on the dark side, there are scores of Pastors, Clergy and Lay-people who have already stood the ground for righteousness and equality. From those who stood for abolition, civil rights, women’s rights, LGBT rights, the environment, and on and on. Folks who risked losing their churches, their freedom and their lives, to pursue a better and more just world. People who put their hearts and souls, and the welfare of others above their pockets.
You are hurting the Christian Church in America, by embodying the image of Christians as hate spewing hypocrites. You and your compadres are hurting the religious community in its entirety with your circus act.
I understand in some little extent what Muslims in this country must experience when their religion is always depicted as radicalism, because you and your buddies behave as jihadists.
*I just want to add that I know a great many folks who are true family values people. People who believe in love, fidelity, honesty and justice.
People who do not spout the rhetoric of values, while in actuality committing heinous acts, or living a double standard.
