I feel no personal animosity towards Glenn Beck, but much of what he espouses is
not "freedom". I used to listen to his program pretty consistently
during an hour commute, so this is not coming from someone who is not familiar
with his program or his viewpoints. Mr. Beck is an ardent supporter of the
"war on terror" and has labeled Ron Paul a "kook" for
questioning the wisdom of war with Iran. Mr. Beck needs to realize that
continual warfare and interventionist policies are incompatible with freedom in
the long run. The Civil War saw Lincoln suspending habeas corpus and enacting
martial law. World War II gave us the forced relocation of Japanese-Americans.
Vietnam had the draft, which disproportionately affected the poor and
minorities. The so-called "war on terror" has presented us with the
Patriot Act, the NDAA, and the TSA ran amuck. If Glenn Beck is serious about
freedom, he will realize the threat to liberty that is a foreign policy of
intervention, pre-emption, and nation building. Liberty cannot be sustained, in
perpetuity, under war time conditions.
So this means that the Layton Christian Academy is no longer a valid nonprofit
institution, exempt from taxation?I think I'll check with the IRS,
for this mix of politics and religion. After all, the Constitution IS hanging
by a thread.
