I am not a Mormon or a Glenn Beck fan by any measure but yikes this guy is a little extereme by anyones standards.

Provo, UT

What a funny and angry man!

Lincoln, NE

Those are pretty inflammatory words for someone who professes to be a follower of Christ.

Syracuse, UT

I would like this guy to tell me what mormons believe since he knows everything about everything.

Spanish Fork, UT

Well, this was good for entertainment - kind of like you'd listen to a comedian. Don't know how this guy gets anyone to believe him - he certainly doesn't know very many facts about the LDS church or Glenn Beck.
I don't know where Beck is coming from with the Israel thing either, and he does sound more like a preacher sometimes than a political commentator.
However, I have NEVER heard him preach Mormonism, only faith in God, and you choose what that means.
But it was good read for a laugh!

I am a Mormon, a Glenn Beck fan, and not a Harry Reid fan, but I am proud to belong to a Church where both conservatives and liberals can stand side by side in their adoration for Jesus Christ and his atonement, which is the core of our doctrine. Anyone who says Mormons are not Christians is a narrow minded bigot with an agenda, or an ignorant person who has bought into such nonsense.

I would encourage my fellow LDS to realize this. Anywhere you find someone who dislikes the ______ (Jewish, Muslim) religion, they will take aims at Mormons next. Do not be a stiff necked people and support hate mongers because you personally don't like a particular religion. We need to practice what Jesus taught and to love all people, no matter religious differences and reject people such as Keller.

Preaching hatred in the name of Jesus Christ will be dealt with by The Holy One Of Israel himself and he employeth no other servant.

If these people gain power will they will come for you too because they don'r believe that LDS are Christians.

Pastor Martin Niemöller:

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

i'd rather burn in hell with the likes of mormons, ghandi, muslims, hindus, budhists, and whatever else isn't under the mainstream stamp of christianity than spend an eternity in heaven with evenagelical chest pounders like this guy. at least i'd know where to go to get a good casserole.

Freedom of religion....

Vernal, UT

Poor guy. Such a sad way to live your life.

Shame on Michael de Groote for giving this guy a forum. ... A terrible decision to give this guy publicity.

Thant's one angry white dude there.

Rexburg, ID

He's just clamoring for attention!

Ogden, UT

A Christian is anyone who proclaims to follow the teachings of Christ as contained in the Bible. Mormons follow Christs teachings. They base their religion on love, and helping their neighbors. Mormons also believe Jesus is the Messiah prophesied in the Bible, the Son of God, and the savior of mankind from their sins.

That all sounds like a cult to this guy?

The problem is that evangelicals are trying to redefine what a Christian is. They would like the term Christian to mean "some one who believes like me."

Riverton, UT

"He also called Islam "a religion of hate, violence and death.""

This Keller guy sounds like a real hoot and a great example of Christianity...I'm all in! He sure has the hate thing down. I guess if this is an example of true Christianity, substance abuse doesn't look all that bad. I think the Bible says that all we have to do is confess the name of Jesus and we're saved. What is all the fuss about?

Fresno, CA

I grew up with kids whose preachers were just like this guy. They always wanted to tell me what I believed (insert the first crazy thing that pops into your head). When I would tell them that I did NOT believe that, they would tell me: "You do too. I know because my preacher told me and HE'S studied it."

I've always wondered what it was there guys were studying ... it certainly wasn't my religion!

He kind of looks like Will Ferrells character in Zoolander, Mugatu. "I'm a hot little potato right now! I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!"

Eagle Mountain, UT

Keller must feel a need for more attention. Poor little man.
