"They intend to vote on the Sabbath, during Lent, to take away the liberty that we have right from God," King said.

"Faith has been perverted," Beck responded, then repeated. "They are going to vote for this damn thing on a Sunday, which is the Sabbath, during Lent."

Why would an entity as omnipotent as the Creator give two ****s about what you do on an arbitrary day of the week created and named by us as a tool to divide up the Earth's orbit of the Sun?

They did not want to insult the Jews by doing it on Saturday. Maybe Beck thinks that Israel is behind it.

GEN 2:2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so
on the seventh day he rested from all his work.

3 And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he
rested from all the work of creating that he had done
10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall
not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant
or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates.

Many Christians dont believe you should work on Sun that is their choice. Doesnt mean you must believe or agree

The way people use religion to sway political views is sickening.

I wonder if Beck and the Congressman know that some states even allow you to buy beer on Sundays. We better not tell them. They might have a conniption.
