More details are emerging about what is either going be an epic train wreck or a crashing bore, Glenn Beck’s much-hyped 4th of July extravaganza in which he says he will tell the story of America from the perspective of the (non-existent, of course) man in the moon. It apparently has something to do with the Tower of Babel. Oh, and the Jewish wingnut Daniel Lapin repeats his nonsense about retirement being unbiblical:
GLENN: I have with me one of my dear friends and he’s the best teacher I think. I said on the era minute ago, I have such respect for David Barton and I think he’s one of the best teachers known in America. Rabbi Daniel Lapin is David Barton on steroids, not on speed but on steroids. And I was just showing him a picture of something that’s coming from the American Dream Labs for Man in the Moon and this is in construction now and I think it’s actually finished. I’m just waiting for the film on it. But this is a model of the Tower of Babel that, when I’m telling the story of America in the Man in the Moon thing for independence week in Salt Lake, part of that has to include the Tower of Babel. And that came from a conversation where he taught me the story, Rabbi Lapin taught me the story of the Tower of Babel and it is so clear what the ‑‑ the Lord is so consistent, and we are battling the exact same problem over and over and over again.
RABBI LAPIN: Well, that’s what the first nine verses in Chapter 11 of genesis, that’s not just a silly story about some anachronistic nation that’s vanished in some primitive archeological artifact. No, it’s actually a blueprint for the faithful allure of socialism which will live and burn in the hearts of men until the end of time.
GLENN: He has a new book called Buried Treasure: Secrets For Living from the Lord’s Language, where he is taking Hebrew and showing ‑‑ for instance, I love this, and this isn’t in the book and let me just make this side note. One of the things he taught me was, “Glenn, there is no such thing ‑‑ there’s no Hebrew word for retirement. It’s not in the Bible. There’s no word for retirement, not part of God’s plan.”
I bet there’s no Hebrew word for car or television show either, so Beck is sinning every time he drives to the studio to do his show. How are these people taken seriously?
