Beck: Obama Killing Christianity So He Can Kill Everyone Else


Glenn Beck has another new conspiracy theory. He says that Obama is trying to establish a socialist country, which he says always results in killing millions of people, and in order to do that he’s trying to “kill Christian thought.” Once he does that, he can go on to kill millions of people. Because that’s a totally reasonable thing to say.

    It would be interesting to know what percentage of Beck’s audience, even amongst the right wingers he’s supposedly catering to, watch Beck just to see what insane crap he’s going to spew.

    Beck: Obama Killing Christianity So He Can Kill Everyone Else

    Why should Glenn Beck care? He isn’t even a xian, he is a Mormon.

    Ironically, Mormons have fought with and killed xians before, in the middle west before they left and during the Utah war against the USA.

    The high point of that war was the slaughter of 120 civilians at Mountain Meadows. No one over the age of 7 survived.

    …watch Beck just to see what insane crap he’s going to spew.

    It would be more interesting and quite frightening, to find out how many of his viewers believe what he is saying!!!

    I suspect it would be most of them.

    @#1–I have a friend who is a huge Glenn Beck fan. He happens to be right-wing of political view, tends to buy into conspiracy theories, thinks the notion of ancient aliens helping early earth cultures is fairly reasonable… and he thinks Beck’s act is just that–an act. Entertainment, Borat style. And he is convinced that all of Beck’s viewers think likewise–that no sentient human being could take Beck seriously. Sure, the topics are chosen to appeal to a FOX News audience, but Beck’s twist on them is pure fantasy.

    So, in a way, yes, he’s watching “just to see what insane crap he’s going to spew”, but in this particular case, he is certain that that is the intentional point of the show.

    I looked up TheBlaze com on Alexa, the internet rating and traffic analysis site.

    The Blaze is one of the top 1000 websites in the world.

    Cthulhu, who knows a more rational country to move to? Or better yet, another planet.

    Why bother killing millions of folks ‘after’ killing ‘Christian thought’…why not go directly to genocide and do not collect 200 bucks.

    No point in faffin’ with the Christians and their dubious thought patterns….just wipe the fuckers out…simples!

    The depth of paranoia and the plethora of conspiracy tales by right-wing dumbfucks is becoming a visible measurement of their mental instability which seems indirectly proportional to the success of their ‘thick as pig shite’ schemes and desires.

    I only know one person who watches Glenn Beck. He does believe every word he says and is a devout fundie xian.

    OTOH, he is very old and has been showing age related cognitive decline symptoms for a long time.

    If your goal is to kill millions of people, wouldn’t that be more easily accomplished by embracing and manipulating Christian thought than by trying to kill it?

    Hmmmm.cPerhaps a meaningful number. Too bad TheBeast is already taken.

    Raven;
    The Mormon Church is officially the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Mormons do worship Jesus, they have the Old and New Testaments as well as the Book of Mormon. So, while they might not be the same as the Catholics, Orthodox Christians, Coptic Christians, or any of the zillions of other Protestant denominations, they really are Christians.

  11. raven says

    they really are Christians.

    Oh, I see. You are the world’s decider of who is a True Xian. Does the Pope know this? Were you appointed by god, jesus, or the holy spook?

    This is just your opinion.

    Once again, there is no way to decide who is a True xian!!! There is no central authority in xianity and no enforcement since we took away their armies and heavy weapons. Without being able to massacre each other, they have no way to tell either.

    It’s all opinions.

    1. So what is the USA xian opinion. Half of all xians claim the Mormons are not xians. It is 3/4 ministers and priests claim Mormons are not xians. The majority opinion would say Mormons not= xians.

    2. And it works both ways. The official position of the Mormon church is that, there is only One True Xian Cult. Theirs.

    They say xianity was invented 2,000 years ago, promptly disappeared for 2,000 years, and was rediscovered by Joseph Smith.

    LDS: The Only True Church?
    www. leaderu. com/offices/michaeldavis/docs/mormonism/onlytrue.html‎

    Mormon scriptures claim that the LDS church is “the only true and living church … There is no salvation outside The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints”

    Just so you all know.

    There are 42,000 xian sects. 39,999 of them are Fake Xians and you are all wasting your time. You probably won’t go to hell because Mormons have 4 afterlives, but you won’t make godhood and have your own planet in the highest one either.

    I don’t have a problem calling Mormons Fake xians. When I was a xian, they did the exact same thing to me and my church. As an ex-xian, I suppose I’m now demon ridden or worse. They are big on demons and satan as well.

    No, I don’t decide anything. I didn’t understand that you were making such distinctions. I’m not a Mormon, or any other kind of Christian; I’m not religious at all. I just use the same simple definition that I was taught ages ago: if someone believes that JC was a savior, that makes that someone a Christian. Most historians and other scholars that I know use that same definition; it’s been that way since grad. school for me. I really meant no offense; my apologies.

    I agree. Fixing on a basic definition of “Christianity” is not the same as deciding which Christians are “true” Christians and which ones aren’t. I don’t see a problem with what you said: Mormonism is technically classified as a version of Christianity. I think raven has gone off on a tangent.

    Where it gets gray for me are people who say they are ‘Christians’ but really push the envelope on how significant Christ was, rejecting the Trinity, the atonement, salvation, damnation, and sometimes even the existence of God. Sorry, but if you think Jesus was one of the incarnations of the Buddha or a completely terrestrial humanist rabbi who taught some good things about forgiveness, then we’re going to have to have a longer discussion than “you are one if you say you are.”

    The Mormon church agrees with me.

    We just disagree on which cults are the Real Xians.

    PS A lot of xian thought leaders (which is almost but not quite an oxymoron) would say that there are multiple xianities, multiple xian gods, and multiple jesuses. The sects have evolved and diverged enough that speciation has taken place. Many of them have nothing in common but the names.

    PSS “There are 42,000 xian sects. 39,999 of them are Fake Xians…” should be 42,000 xian sects, 41,999 of them being Fake Xians. Math, how does it work now.

    .
    This is why my personal description of “Christian” is something like “somebody who follows a religion based on the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, and who believes that he was unique in significant ways.” Too many Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, and New Age types would say, yeah, he was divine and all, but one of thousands.
    .
    We can agree on the definition of “thief”, Raven, without thinking that we know for certain if Mr. Jones over there is one. And there are many related sets of entities in the universe which we can define in general but in which there would always be outliers which may or not fit the definition. Is a bean bag a chair? Is a tomato a fruit? Depends on the definition you want to use. The clarification of the fuzzy boundaries of a definition and the truthfulness of a particular objects membership in a class are two different questions.
    .
    I would also suggest that they are trivial questions in their nature, occasionally important to human affairs, and sometimes impossible to answer empirically.

    Tim @ #1
    I read the comments in the editorial section of my local (Texas) paper.
    There are a group of fundi tea party faithful types who comment there every day.
    They constantly cite The Blaze and believe everything that Beck tells them.

    I wish the rightwingnutz would find out what socialism really is and stop labeling everyone to the left of Joseph Farah as socialists.
