I'd laugh, but there are a whole bunch of people on this site who quote Glenn Beck's "The Blaze" like it's the Bible. I think that says very scary things about that portion of the evangelical conservative movement in this country.

That's what I don't get about Christians...they claim their God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent, but they don't act like it.

I mean, if that's the case, wouldn't their God already know that this place needs to be destroyed if that's truly what needs to be done? If it hasn't been destroyed yet, then aren't we to assume that God doesn't want it to be, therefore making Beck out to be a fool?

Or should God destroy America after waiting for Beck's command to do so?

Glenn Beck probably thinks God should take his advice.

Brilliant marketing.
Yes. You're correct. He is pawning us all.

Beck is as morally corrupt and cynical as a human being can get.

They can't help, but feed the trolls.

When he and Penn Jillette get together it can be an interesting debate.....

Fat, apocalyptic, crying guys seem to appeal to some people. I suspect some of Beck's die hard fans also liked this guy.
