Glenn Beck's Gawd

The Weepy Mormon as theologian:
Conservative commentator Glenn Beck voiced sharper criticism of President Obama's religious beliefs on Sunday than he and other speakers offered from the podium of the rally Beck organized at the Lincoln Memorial a day earlier.

During an interview on "Fox News Sunday," which was filmed after Saturday's rally, Beck claimed that Obama "is a guy who understands the world through liberation theology, which is oppressor-and-victim."

"People aren't recognizing his version of Christianity," Beck added.
"His version of Christianity?" This, from an adherent of a treasure-digging cult? Look, I know and like some Mormon folks, and I don't want to unnecessarily hurt anyone's feelings ... but, come on, now. This is beyond irony. Mr. Beck needs to get the magic spectacles out of his own eyes, so he can see more clearly to help the O-bomber out with his theological difficulties -- which, to be sure, do seem fairly profound.

It occurs to me that both the Reclamation Rallies that happened in Mordor, DC this past weekend have a prominent religious defect in common: idolatry. Specifically, the worship of Saint Martin Luther King and that of Saint Abraham Lincoln. It's enough to gag a maggot, is all it is.
