God really sucks, but will He swallow Glenn Beck moronic mumblings?

WHEN he realised all was lost for Mitt Romney, the first thought that popped into the vacuous cavern that passes for the skull of Mormon conservative talk show host Glenn Beck was:

Man, sometimes God really sucks.

He added:

I got up at 3:00 in the morning and I knew. And I couldn’t sleep, and I started to say my prayers and I got up and kneeled down by the edge of my bed, and I knew that — or I suspected that my mind’s not God’s mind — and the peace and the comfort that he had given me and so many of my friends was not about an election.

Beck’s response of Obama’s victory: a juvenile T-shirt

According to this report, the fool – “a fusion of entertainment and enlightenment” – added:

God’s about a bigger picture than an election or a candidate. God is about the freedom of mankind. God is about the Constitution, which is divinely inspired.

In the weeks prior to the election, Beck had made comments that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was trailing in the polls because “God wanted to perform a miracle in the end”.

Beck is now trying to capitalise on the elction result. He’s created a T-shirt that says “O’crap,” with the “O” being the Obama symbol.

    It should be painfully apparent to everyone that Glenn Beck is playing a character.

    Oh dear.
    This is just s disaster.
    what will all those sportsmen and women do now?
    If this is ‘true’? [like the report - post of a few days ago]

    “God’s about a bigger picture than an election or a candidate. God is about the freedom of mankind..”

    If gawd doesn’t want to get involved in the election. what about all the sports events he [doesn't] turn up at? How did the 3.16 happen. I can’t believe this. He helps that idiot run 3.16 yards yet he isn’t interested in democracy and guiding the vote!
    Crap indeed. Maybe these morons will realise that the bigger picture is that it’s all crap.

  3. David Anderson says:

    So, the fuckwit Beck claims that the American Constitution was “divinely inspired”. If that is the case, why did it need so many amendments to patch the holes left in the original document? Why do so many Christins claim the god of the OT as their own? Clearly this god is an invention by and for the Jewish people. Christins, as the name implies should claim the megalomaniac Jebus as their god.

    Thanks for that link, Barry. My brain has now turned to mush.

    Barry, AgentCormac,

    I outwardly groaned at the ‘lions den’ segment.

    Now, wouldn’t that be great on pay-per-view?

    Thanks largely to the internet, American atheists are at last finding their voice. This is really very good:

    Comments: “An alliance or coalition between government? and religion cannot be too carefully guarded against… Every new and successful example therefor of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters is of importance… religion and government will exist in greater purity, without (rather) than with the aid of government.” – James Madison

    “Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law.” – Thomas? Jefferson

    It’s heartwarming to see reason prevail in the USA at last. Someone made this comment on that Ted Haggard video that I posted earlier today:

    Its interesting, I always see the highest rated comments on these kinds of video on Youtube being Atheistic in nature, and yet we only make up a teeny tiny fraction of the worlds population…Somethings gotta give. Time to come out of the closet, brothers and sisters, the world has lived under the dogmas of ancient books of mysticism for FAR too long.

    I put him right on his “teeny tiny fraction of the world’s population” assessment. It only SEEMS that way!

    @Barry, etc.: I gave up at “Church Triumphant”, by which time I’d pissed my pants and squirted coffee all over the keyboard and screen – we are not alone, we have the support of every Catholic who has, er, died …

    “Wotchit or I’ll set my dead brother on you!”

    Here’s one about “Persecuted Christians” in the American “lions’ den”!

    I can’t believe that Peppermint Patti is linking to an article on same-sex marriage by George A Rekers. Surely she must be several beads short of a rosary?

    http://freethinker.co.uk/?s=george+rekers

  10. barriejohn says:

    Here is Reker’s article:

    http://www.catholiceducation.org/articles/homosexuality/ho0097.html

    Rekers explains that the inherent nature of a household formed by homosexually behaving adults “uniquely endangers foster children by exposing them to a substantial level of harmful stresses that are over and above usual stress levels in heterosexual foster homes.”

    Citing a wide variety of academic studies from countries around the world, Rekers explains that homosexual adults suffer from significantly higher rates of psychological disorders such as suicide, conduct disorder and substance abuse. Living with a parent who suffers from a mental disorder or has problems with drug or alcohol abuse will only trigger further stresses and problems for adopted children, he contends.

    “The logical conclusion from these findings would be that heterosexual adults generally have significantly and substantially better health, more energy, and better emotional stamina to devote to foster children,” argues Rekers.

    Can you believe it?

  11. Barry Duke says:

    Thanks BarrieJohn. I actually missed her link to Rekers. I just left a comment about him on Peppermint Patti blog. Let’s see how she sugars that!

  12. barriejohn says:

    She’s replied already:

    Dear Barry, Rekers is the founder of the Family Research Council, author of many pro-family articles and books and an international speaker on the topic. I was not aware of the rumors surrounding him until you just alerted me to it. However, the link you gave me with the accusation, belongs to an atheist/pro-homosexual site, so I would not consider that an accurate source. I looked further and found this http://www.towleroad.com/2010/05/george-rentboy-rekers-statements-from-family-research-council-narth-and-rekers-himself.html, which gives a more balanced account, pointing out that the rumor came from a source that seeks to destroy his reputation. Still, I am in no position to say whether the rumor is true or not. It would seem the facts and research regarding the importance of traditional families are true and I cannot speak to the validity of the accusations being made against Rekers. However, it is good to know about this so be be on the safe side, I will look for a replacement article.
    Thank you for your feedback.

    “Atheist/pro-homosexual” – can’t trust any of those guys!

  13. barriejohn says:

    Barry: Did you notice the great lengths to which she went in her bleuuurgh to point out that Catholics are in no way “hateful and homophobic”*, and that their steadfast opposition to gay marriage and adoption rights is based solely upon “logical and scientific reasons”*, only to refer to The Freethinker as “atheist/pro-homosexual”*? The inference is that homosexuality is intrinsically evil, and her problem is obviously with gays and not with any specific rights that they consider to be theirs.

  14. Barry Duke says:

    Yeah, BarrieJohn, I sure did, and I have left another (polite) comment congratulating her (in a backhanded fashion} for removing the Rekers link.

  15. barriejohn says:

    When it comes to Evolution, that is just a baseless hypothesis, but when one of their own is caught in flagrante delicto anyone who points this out is promoting “unsubstantiated rumours”. It’s Alice in Wonderland again: “When I use a word it means just what I choose it to mean”!

  16. Barry Duke says:

    It also cracked me up that she found “a more balanced account” – on a gay website!

  17. barriejohn says:

    Perhaps she spends all her time visiting gay websites! I couldn’t help noticing that she and her followers think that society is getting progressively worse and worse, and that only Jeebus can save us from impending doom. There was an awful piece on the Mail site along these lines recently, eulogizing the late St Mary Whitehouse – “tireless anti-smut campaigner” – who, of course, was right all along: pornography – with Pinky and Perky singled out for special attention (I kid you not) – has brought Western civilization to the brink of collapse. The comments, again, are absolutely priceless – their swivel-eyed readers must be literally lining up to pour out their reactionary and ill-informed guff when given the opportunity. It is as if the flood gates have been opened on all that pent-up frustration!

  18. barriejohn says:

    Just in case anyone thinks that I am making it up!

    Pinky & Perky regularly incurred the wrath of campaigner Mary Whitehouse, who allegedly wrote to the BBC’s Director-General, claiming that the pigs were a subversive influence on young children.

    Not to be outdone, our very own Mad Mel Phillips responds to Obama’s win by falling out of the loony tree and hitting every branch on the way down.

    Are people like Mad Mel allowed to write stuff like this without calling it “fiction”?
