If you have listened to this mans program in any meaningful way, and can still say that you think that his message is that of love, peace, caring for one another--you are lost. I'm sorry to tell you this, but you have found your own Jim Jones. Your fear and distrust of "the other" has been transformed into Orwellian double-speak and for you--"hate is love," "war means peace," and it's just plain dumb to be intelligent.

" Glenn is the biggest fake I have ever seen."

Actually that would be your beloved President Obama who is the biggest fake any of us have ever seen!! The man doesn't know what truth is. How naive are you Left wing Liberals? You still support a man that has accomplished absolutely nothing in the past 4 years, but still has the ego to go out and say that he is one of the top four Presidents of all time.But what do you expect from a socialist? A man that wants be a Dictator more then a President and wants total control of our lives. A man who wants to destroy everything that our founding fathers believed in and died for. And a man and his administration that makes you believe that successful people like Glenn Beck and Mitt Romney are evil because they have money. Please wake up people before its to late.

Thanks to Glenn Beck, Rush, and Hannity we actually know the truth. The Truth that the Mainstream Liberal media wont give us!

I just don't get the whole Glenn Beck thing. I'm conservative and listen to talk radio daily but can't listen to GB. Just find him uninteresting.

But prophet of love?? Seems like he's morphing into some sort of televangelist and that doesn't sit right with me.

I've been critical of Beck, yet I also have lost respect for C. Matthews, O'Donnell, Maddow, Bill O'Reilly, and Anderson Cooper----they all either talk about themselves too much or don't believe in the Bible. With all of Beck's and Palin's faults, at least they believe in the Bible and family which is not the case for much of MSNBC and FOX news. It is cutthroat industy and if there is no news, they make it up.

Lds Lib states, "I'm active LDS and Liberal.
Agreed, King Benjamin + 3rd Nephi + Pioneers, United Order, ect.


U.S. Military,
King of Heaven,
...all Socialist/Communist economic systems."

I'm always astounded at the manner in which people claim membership in the LDS church and then state that the United Order is Socialist/Communist. It's puzzling since so many church presidents and apostles have stated that such a belief is to not to understand the gospel.

King Benjamin's reign is not Socialist or Communist in any manner. You might want to read a little further in Mosiah where it speaks of a King who taxed his people up to 50% and how burdensome it was.

Please, get a clue about what the actual doctrines of the Lds church are before you try to claim that it's acceptable to have a Socialist/Communist government. Interesting to note as well that you are indicating that the manner in which the Democrats govern IS Socialist/Communist and you agree with that.

There is a difference between force and agency and you clearly don't understand that difference.

Aw, c'mon you haters. Love your fellowman, your fellow citizen... your fellow More Man, your fellow Mormon?

So you'll let some 25 year-old farm boy, with self-admitted lack of any theological training, trash the entire Christian world, (lock/stock/&barrel), but you object to a patriotic entrepreneur sharing his views in democratic America?

Beck's world may get "mushy", but some LDS Beck haters here reveal an unwillingness to allow the same equality for all. Even us Bako bumpkins can see that. But will the site monitors allow civil free speech here? That's an even bigger question...


Beck has exposed the Federal Reserve as a scam on the US taxpayers. Please google.

Also,read David Horowitz's latest book "The Leviathan" to get a grasp of why academia receives grants and endowments from the elite tax exempt foundations for promoting Marxist philosophy and why Obama is a product of this indoctrination and picked by the crony capitalist bankers who own the notes on our national debt. Crony capitalist bankers love Marxists, wars, and entitlement programs. It serves their purpose of enslaving the United States to an international socialist collective.

Glenn ‘Lonesome Rhodes’ Beck self-proclimed coronation reminds of a query Heath Ledger posed back in 2008.

When was on Headline News, he was IMO a watered down Lou Dobbs for the American Idol crowd. What I think of him now would be censored so…

"Question: Will they burn the books of those they deem impure?"

To paraphrase Sean Connery, "Goose stepping morons should try reading books w/ ideas contrary to theirs instead of burning them."

So, tell me what did Mitt do a for a living and who is giving him boat loads of cash. Hint: Wall St.

Oh, yeah. MR has an Ivy League degree just like BO.

I don't begrudge anyone making a good living. But I think we need to recognize that what Beck, et al do is entertain us. They do not provide any real product or service that is worth paying for, any more than Brittney Spears does.

I compare Beck to Al Gore. Gore has made a fortune saying words. He does not actually accomplish anything. He just gets paid to say words. Beck does the same. So the only difference is who is willing to pay for those words. For Gore, it's people who want to feel good about reusing a water bottle. For Beck, it's people who want to feel good about something else. So it comes down to the fact that we are willing to pay to have people help us feel good about whatever we're doing. In other words, we pay for affirmation.
