Beck: Here’s what I was told and I believe these people because they’re not just bandwagon fans by any stretch of the imagination. They had real problems with George W. Bush. And they said to me ‘Here’s the thing. This guy had a God-moment, if you will, an awakening of something inside of him…’
Gray: A spiritual awakening
Beck: Yeah. I mean he’s always been a spiritual guy but he has had something that has changed in him fundamentally where he’s like ‘OK wait a minute. Hang on just a second. Do I believe this or not? Do I apply this or not?’ And that’s what’s happened to him in the last four years that has put his feet in cement.
