Beck: We’re ‘Begging to Be Destroyed’


The self-loathing of some Christians never ceases to astonish me. The astonishing idea that humans are so utterly depraved that we deserve to be destroyed by God and then tormented in hell for eternity is incredibly barbaric and inhumane. Glenn Beck says we’re just “begging” for God to destroy us.

    Speak for yourself, Glenn, speak for yourself.

    OMICthulhu, he almost got one thing right. Just who is this “us” anyway?

    If the gods existed and were benign, Glenn Beck and the fundies would be in real danger of ending up as a bit of smoke and some carbon after a lightning bolt hit them.

    That it hasn’t happened implies they don’t exist or don’t care about humans.

    The only thing I think Beck is begging for is a large dose of antipsychotics.

    The man’s screws are way too loose.

    Funny how atheists never beg god(s) to destroy them.

    In the spirit of helping Beck out, I’ll do the deed. “Hit me with that lightning, God. Smite me! Pleeeeease. Do it. DO IT ALREADY!”

    Awww, shucks…nothin’. No response. Who woulda thought?

    Let us all sing…

    Oh Lord, please don’t burn us.
    Don’t grill or toast Your flock.
    Don’t put us on the barbecue
    Or simmer us in stock.
    Don’t braise or bake or boil us
    Or stir-fry us in a wok.
    Oh, please don’t lightly poach us
    Or baste us with hot fat.
    Don’t fricassee or roast us
    Or boil us in a vat,
    And please don’t stick Thy servants, Lord,
    In a Rotissomat.

    America is a vile pit of sin and depravity that deserves to be destroyed by God for its outrageous crimes. But liberals are the ones who hate America. Oookay.

  7. grumpyoldfart says

    He really is begging for the destroyer to come.

    He thinks that when it happens he will get a safe pass to heaven where he can snuggle up to Jesus and watch the sinners burn from a safe distance.

    I want to go to his statement that we’re “redefining” marriage if we allow for non-monogamy. Really? Then why is it that nearly every English king left illegitimate children? Hell, according to Wikipedia, George III had 56 illegitimate grandchildren. Men, particularly those with status, were never expected to be monogamous. Their wives certainly were – and for years the only valid grounds for divorce was adultery on the part of the wife – but not the men.

    And really, any conservative should be careful about bringing up adultery, given their record. David Vitter, Mark Sanford, Rudy Guiliani, Newt Gingrich – how many adulterers have been rehabilitated by the GOP?

    Am I a bad person if I hope that whoever told Beck that those glasses make him look manly and viral did so knowing that they actually make his eyes look very small and very close together?

    @ cptdoom

    Rehabilitated? Hmmm…I’m going with none of them. Re-embraced, every one. The list isn’t short, nor is the list of Democratic politicians whose complicated personal lives (read: cheating on their wives) have been endlessly talked of in Republican circles, decades after the real aftermath is thoroughly done with. (see: blowjob, Clinton)

    Beck’s god seems inordinately concerned with where I stick my dick and is anxious to destroy me if I make the wrong choice

    OK, microwave it is, then.

    Read “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” Not some extremely abridged version you might have read in a high school American lit reader, but the whole thing in its full asinine glory. I am sure that what Beck said, which I am not even going to bother with, is milquetoast and extremely watered down in comparison.

    This is a zen like question…

    “If there is no god to smite…will you still be smited by god?…”

    Hit me with that lightning, God. Smite me! Pleeeeease. Do it. DO IT ALREADY!

    And somewhere in the buckle of the Bible Belt, a good, God-fearing homophobe is hit by lightning. God’s lousy aim strikes again…and again…and again…

    No, not at all. You might work on your vocabulary a bit, though. I mean, Beck probably is viral (in the Internet sense) but the word you want is “virile.”

    Personally, I think those glasses look like the ones Christopher Reeve wore as Clark Kent. Make of that what you will.
