By The Right Scoop


Glenn Beck gave a great commencement speech this morning at Liberty University. He was received well, with a standing ovation even. And it didn’t take long for him to cry, I think even before he started speaking. I believe I counted around 7 times where he got choked up, but that’s just Glenn. He’s a passionate man, and I’m sure that inspiring the young people of tomorrow made him look deep for what he could give them.

Enjoy!

UPDATE: I believe I have corrected the audio issues. Let me know if there is still a problem.

    You are right, Scoop. Glenn is a passionate man and it does not bother me a bit if he gets emotional. He has never apologized for it. He has said that that this is who he is and he realizes that it doesn't make him look good. What makes me really angry is that so-called “feminists” like Joy Behar and Rosie O'Donnell mock his weeping. Back in 1972, there was a special for kids called “Free to be…You and Me.” It was hosted by Mrs. Phil Donohue herself, Marlo Thomas, and was produced by the Ms. Foundation, founded by Gloria Steinem. I give you Rosey Grier, linebacker for the NY Giants and the L.A. Rams, singing “It's All Right to Cry”, written by Carol Hall, who went on to write the musical “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” :

    Beck says to read what they tell you no to read. This in a University thatdid not accept books on Homosexuality during the “2005 equality ride”. What a farse!!!

  • KeninMontana

    Do you think that it might have something to do with the fact that Liberty University is a Christian university? Lets see that would make them a private school not a public or state school therefore giving them the right to accept or turn down any materials they choose. However if you chose to read those books I would be willing to bet they would not kick you out of the school. In my experience private schools place far more value in the freedoms and rights espoused in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights than state run or public schools do.

  • Tyler

    Maybe there was something I missed here. They gave him a DOCTORATE degree…as in he can technically be called “Dr. Beck” now?

    Yeah. In addition to being one of the few people willing to tell people what's actually going on anymore, he's also one of my favorite comedians now.

    Great speech indeed. Thank you, Scoop.

    Mr Beck seems to have replaced his addiction to cocaine and alcohol with addiction to paranoid conspiracy theories. typical addict behavior. what language is he speaking? oh America, please stop giving this guy the time of day. I'm embarrassed for you.

    kindest regards, the rest of the world.

    Glenn Beck: “God's finger … wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. This is God's Country.”

    Nothing could be further from the truth. But then again, truth is an inconvenience to him which is simply ignored to suit his insane ideas.

  • KeninMontana

    How arrogant to presume that you speak for the rest of the world. Petty personal attacks and character assassination are age old hallmarks of the left. Just go back to reading the daily kos or huffington post and while you're at it you might try freshening up your talking points,they are really quite antiquated and worn threadbare, they did not work in the 60's and they are not going to sway anyone now but gullible.

    That was a very heartfelt message and I believe God is calling Glenn Beck to the burning bush. He will need to carry his stick with him as he travels the desert wilderness to the dead sea of lies. The walls of lies will tumble all around those who stand against truth and they will be crushed by the hand of God. No enemy can overcome righteousness. There is no fear in God and we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Glenn Beck is standing in truth and it is up to all of us to find that truth for ourselves and stand with him. Thanks Glenn for doing your part.

    • Bbettyturn

      I was doing some research for a speech to be delivered at my brothers church in a couple of months and i wanted to check this out again. You appear to believe in Gode. I just assume you are a christian. Have you ever read Kingdom of the cults by Martin Walters?. It is a classic that should be read by all those who claim to be christians. Did you know that Glenn Beck is a morman? Mormans are not Christians in the traditionl sence. Why is a Christian University giving a morman an honorary anything?

    Excellent speech. I hope the students appreciate his message. A standing ovation from me. Thank you for sharing.
    I have to say to those of you that have taken to bashing this good man who only means to honor this country and expose the truth. Apparently something made you afraid in this speech to make you so insecure. Don't be afraid the truth will set you free.

    Dear Right Scoop,

    Thank you for posting this speech by Glenn. I too found myself tearing up several times.

    Would you possibly consider posting this to your youtube account? I would love to have a copy of this speech. Or, can you make this post available for download? I'm not too technical so I'm not sure how to do this.

    Thank you again for your continued posting of many different topics on your web site. Next to checking out Glenn's web site daily, I also look at yours for updates.

    God Bless.

    Look And Live…

    Biblical words definitely get my attention.

    The words of Moses, “look and live,” are so relevant today that if and when the men and women that God is lifting up into positions of leadership in the church and government start repeating more biblical words, phrases and concepts as Glenn Beck did today at Liberty University when he said “…look to God and live”… THEN… God will lift up America again.

    God bless Glenn Beck and all those who lift up Jesus… regardless of their denomination and doctrine. God knows his own.

    bbimajeep is the perfect example of the self hating american nihilist. He is either in denial about our founding or he's willfully ignorant. Either way, he shows his ignorance. Over 45 of the original signers of the Declaration had seminary degrees. God is mentioned 5 times in the declaration of independance. The first business of the first continental congress was to hire chaplains and ask for a prayer to lead and guide them in their efforts.

    bbimajeep123 is either wrong due to a public education or he's a card carrying member of the useful idiots club.

    That was truly an inspirational speech, something for the graduates to take with them and think about unlike the negative speeches the president has been giving lately.

  • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Ozzie Castillo

    Loved the speech, much better than his NRA speech. Although it went a little too much into politics at first, I think that he did a great job with the general advice at the end. Some of it was really touching- I have been there myself and he really understands it. My favorite line was, “someone you meet today is afraid and suffering, find them and comfort them”. I had a personal experience where someone came up to me in school, I was at the time suffering at home as I was beaten by my dad regularly, and she said, out of nowhere, “smile, Jesus loves you”. I had no idea then, but now it makes sense- only wish it had made sense then. Glenn Beck has been through a lot and understands the fundamentals of life and God.

    We need more people sharing the same message.

    Religious or not a lot of good advice

  • chaswv

    Beck addressed that right off the bat in his speech. It went something like: “You do not endorse my faith, but I endorse yours. We must unite…”

    It does not suprise me that Liberty let some Mormon speak. It was a wonderful address that was perfectly appropriate for the intended audience.

  • daytrader1

    Why does he claim he had to drop out of college because he “couldn't afford it”? According to Beck himself, he took only one course in theology and dropped out in 1996. Anybody who makes such a claim of unaffordability in the years following Pell and Stafford, is lying. He certainly likes to beg sympathy on false premises, doesn't he?

  • daytrader1

    Wow AF, learn English before you go on the attack!

  • chaswv

    daytrader1: why not ask him?

    At that time, he was probably paying child support for 2 children and he was in AA and Beck was actually employed at a radio station. Perhaps Beck did not want to borrow heavily. It is YOU who assume he is lying, etc. That says alot about you.

    Oh and this was a university commencement speech and if that were true (again, ask him yourself), the personal story of education affordability would be relevant.

  • daytrader1

    If going to college meant so much to him, he would have found a way. There are ALWAYS ways. In 1996 he could have come to Liberty and gotten funding. Private schools are fabulous for making the impossible happen. He was just begging sympathy. The rest of his speech — wow, hyperbole, nonsensical, scattered. Regular breaks for sobbing. I felt sorry for the audience. I feel sorry for Beck, too, he is clearly a troubled man.

  • pparsealot

    Thanks! Downloaded Mozilla and it worked! Pardon my exuberance, but being technologically challenged, I enjoy it when I learn new aspects of web browsing. I appreciate your help

  • pparsealot

    While Beck may identify himself as a member of the Mormon tradition, his theology and presentation of Christ is more in accord with historical Christianity. I found the statement that chaswv quoted of Beck very humble, considerate, and I wish more people of all faiths were as thoughtful as he is here. We would have a lot less dissent, and a lot more cooperation between people of religious conviction if we would follow his advice.

    I thought it even more interesting that Beck who has no formal training in the preaching of God's Word, so eloquently and effectively laid out the plan of redemption.

  • williamm

    daytrader1,The audience liked it. Most of us on here liked it. I actually feel sorry for you. I won't say anything negative against you since I have no idea what caused you to feel this way. God Bless You

  • chaswv

    First, I agree with you that where there is a will, there is a way.

    But at what point in this speech did Beck assert that 'going to college' meant 'so much to him'? He clearly did appreciate the honorific degree, but I don't recall that he stated he was a victim of overpriced higher ed. Can you cite that for me?

    Anyway, I concede that Beck could have borrowed, etc. to go to college given the availability of (mis-allocated?) resources for this purpose.

    That does not make it “affordable” to a particular person who has competing values. Recall that Michelle Obama was still complaining about unaffordable college debt burdens when Barack Obama was seeking his own election to the U.S. Senate and she had high paying job as a hospital lawyer. Just because you can borrow to buy a good or service does not make it rationally “affordable”. (See the U.S. Government.)

    I agree the address was scatterd. Nonsense? Not so much. I don't feel sorry for Beck. I bet you could not have composed or delivered an inspirational talk nearly as well.

    But for your need to make your comments about this, I feel sorry and pray for you, brother or sister. I agree with williamm below. God Bless You!

  • daytrader1

    William, what “caused” me to “feel this way” is…er…obvious. It's ok, we don't see eye-to-eye, if that makes for enjoyment for some, to each his own. I and others, on the other hand, would have been mortified to have such a speaker.

  • pparsealot

    I actually feel sorry for you. Obviously you have had some very bad experiences in your life to be so skeptical and hostile towards a person who seems to have had a tough road in life at one stage, who now appears to genuinely care for people, and is still profoundly moved by the interaction of God in his life.

    Unless you've walked a mile in his shoes I don't think you can authentically understand the heart-felt emotion and gratitude he is striving to express to these graduates. And his personal reasons for not being able to afford to attend more than one college class are his and his alone.

    I find it interesting that of all the Glenn Beck videos RS posts on here, the only time the Left has so strongly come out in opposition is when Glenn testifies to the redeeming power of Jesus Christ. But I am glad you all ARE listening, watching, and I hope that as the Truth permeated the life of Glenn and gave him hope, you too will come to an awareness of your own need and discover for yourself optimistic truth and lasting transformation.

  • daytrader1

    Well, he broke down and cried. If it hadn't meant something to him, then the awarding of an “honorary” doctorate would have meant even less (I am no fan of honorary doctorates for anybody). He was moved because he suddenly had something that perhaps he wanted (well, it's never too late, is it?). And if he is such a believer in paying your own way (a respectable path indeed), then why accept a “gift” doctorate which he clearly has not earned?

    As for feeling sorry for me, pardon me, but I really don't care any more than you care that I am sorry for Beck and his followers. And the nasty little habit christians have of ending discourse with “I will pray for you” and “God bless you” is something those of that persuasion should reconsider, as it is perceived by at least some others as a method of control; i.e., “I will pray for you even though clearly you would not like me to.”
    Please, at least spare me that insult.

  • daytrader1

    Just because someone has had a tough life does not qualify them as an appropriate speaker. His behavior was classic alcoholic, not exactly role model behavior. I can understand one lapse into tears, but almost continuously??

    and those notes to his daughter, wow, just when he might have made a bit of a point he lapses into nonsensical advice, mixing metaphors, and in one breath insisting the road less traveled is the only way, the next breath — private flights and Louis Vuitton are the only way to go??? Such statements couched in a speech that proclaimed at least twice that “wealth and fame” are not the answers?
    Furthermore, as someone else posted above, I find it enormously amusing how he preached and insisted that students read what is forbidden to them…lol. How does that go down at LU, I wonder? That's right, kiddos, read everything you can get your hands on about atheism, radicalism, any ism you can think of, oh yes, and lots of homosexual material, too!

    Like I said, to each his own. Definitely not for some of us.

    What part of “he clearly did appreciate the honorific degree” in my post is unclear to you? The degree was unearned. He has no public transcript. Interesting standard.

    But I digress and no matter how I wish to dispense with the nasty habit of praying for you, I can't brother or sister. Why come here and do what you do IF you are not screaming out for help? (That is not meant as an insult. Your posts are.) One assumes that you have something better to do!

  • pparsealot

    Daytrader, in all due respect, as I stated previously, if you have not walked in similar shoes you have no position to make a comment like this on any person's character. Overcoming hardship does qualify him to speak on his experience. Let's agree that those on the Left revel in promoting those who have overcome great diversity in their lives as paragons of virtue and character. Why can't we on the Right have and extol the same? We all have our faults and shortcomings. Institutions, even those with the best of intentions, have fallen short of the ideal. We can all criticize and blog our lives away doing so. But you and I need, as Glenn exhorted, to find avenues that we can learn to agree on and build from that. I believe as Americans we have got to get past “to each his own.” This is a path to destruction. While we are all individuals, we have got to re-learn how to be united again. We must! Instead of the fatalist manta, lets find a new paradigm that says “to each his own, but to each consideration.” (or something)

    If all we do is shout at each other from both ends of our respective ideological bases – we're doomed as a country (I can be pessimistic too). But we've got to meet in the middle. And I believe that is what Glenn is trying to say. Until both ends of the ideological spectrum start to constructively dialog we will never be united.

    May I beg one question of you? Why, if as you state, what Glenn Beck says in this video is not for you, then why have you come here, watched the video (I will give you credit that you watched the full 30 minutes), and decided to interact with us here? What is it that you are seeking? I do not believe it is just to argue, maybe it is, but you seem to be looking for answers.

    I am willing to meet with you in this discussion, if you want to constructively dialog, to hopefully find avenues that will promote objective and constructive conclusions between us. I think that is what you are really looking for, not just some hillside philosopher screaming at the crowd. Otherwise why would you waste your time here, when you could find alternative web blogs whose ideologies are more aligned with yours, and you would be acclaimed for your opposition to Glenn Beck?

    Having been on both sides of the political and philosophical spectrum, I can say that those on the Right were and continue to be much more open minded to dialog than those on the Left. Yes, we are not perfect, and there are narrow minded and prejudiced extremes on the Right too. I am not here to convince you that Glenn is right. But I am asking you to at least be open enough to give the guy a break. I think the event was a little overwhelming for him, can we at least agree to that? So what if he got a little choked up and received some honorary degree? And yes Glenn can go off on tangents, that's just Glenn. But it goes to show he is just an ordinary guy, thrust into an extra-ordinary circumstance that he didn't expect or seek. And the thing about his daughter, do you have a daughter? Man, I've got two, and now a Granddaughter, and if you get me talking about them, I become a basket case!

  • williamm

    You have a right to your opinion, but remember the light you are shining is your own light. I want to personally thank you for your attack on Beck. It brought more people to comment. I understand the fear of the people on the left, of having someone tell the truth. The truth is the biggest fear of the progressives only because they are strangers to the truth.

    They have the right to, but that doesn't mean they should.

  • danieltumser

    I thought no one was supposed to judge except your god? You seem very judgemental there.

    Oh, by the way, all capitals for emphasis, especially so frequently, does not add power or credibility to your words, it simply conveys an innate lack of reasoning in your diatribe in focusing less on what you say, than how you say it. Here's a tip, merely asserting something to be true does not count as a compelling argument for what it is you are claiming, even if you believe it really really hard.

    You also make a lot of assumptions and ad hominem attacks at the people criticizing Glenn, rather than attacking their arguments. That distraction technique can also be called a red herring.

    Let me correct you on multiple false or unsupported assumptions that you made in your emotionally blinded appeal, I refuse to call it a rebuttal or argument.

    (In the order they appear in your comment)

    1. Atheist's rejected the “God(s)” kool-aid, maybe you should try a drink that isn't so spiked with self-righteous misanthropy, emotional blackmail, scare tactics and vehement tribalism

    2. Not all atheists are left-wing or Obama worshipping or socialists, some are, but so are some christians. I myself am a die hard capitalist who'd in favor of limited government to the point I'm nearly an anarchist (I'm not because it's an impractical ideology that necessitates a utopian state of human nature)

    3. Glenn pisses us off because he argues the same way you do, disjointed ramblings packed to the gills with logical fallacies, inconsistencies and selective knowledge. These fallacies include, but are not limited to, Appeal to Emotion, Appeal to Common Belief, Ad Populum, Non sequitur, Argument from Authority, Quote Mining, Red Herring, False Dichotomy and Argument from Incredulity.

    4. Multiple dots are not used to convey a pause in the speech, that is what commas are for, the “. . .” is used to let readers know there is a break in the words of quotation or citation.

    5. I believe you meant “conscience,” not conscious, either way, it's invalid. If us atheists had no consciousness, we would be able to read your comment, thus constituting an enormous waste of time and emotionally charged effort on your part. The slander that we lack a conscience is a dead horse that has been beat enough, the acceptance of the Old Testament as the word and law of a good and just god is what requires the lack of, or willful suspension of one's conscience.

    6. Oh, so you're going for abortion stances, just so you know this has nothing to do with whether or not Glenn is credible. How about you read your bible? Hosea 13:16, God seems very much in favor of killing the unborn. I would love to see less abortions happening, religious arguments are the least effective.

    7. Go right ahead and distinguish for us the difference between “real” and “fake” freedoms as well as healthcare. There's simply freedom or tyranny. And healthcare is not real or fake (unless we're talking about faith-healing and new age garbage) it is a scientific practice which has a measurable quality.

    8. Apply what I just said in 7 to your supposed idea of “real Americans,” one is either a citizen of the United States or not, just because we disagree or don't believe in your 1 religion out of the hundreds, if not thousands out there does not cheapen our citizenship in the greatest nation in mankind's history.

    9. There's no hatred here, frustration over being lied to for years even by our parents in most cases about supposed metaphysics maybe, but no hatred. Unlike your god, we would never drown you in a global flood for wrongs, we would never order our chosen people to slaughter you or your children etc etc.

    10. No, noted historical figures and historians wrote the history books, just like men wrote your bible, asserting a belief is not evidence and advances the support for your assertion by exactly nil, provide concrete evidence of your god personally stepping in to intercede in and guide history without referencing scripture.

    11. He can write our future can he? Evidence for this claim please. I also assume based on that statement you don't believe in free will, in which case, how can you be so judgmental and righteously indignant that people whole differing positions from your own, maybe your god decided we would hold the positions we do. Do you claim outrage over the potential acts of your God?

    Please take the time to learn how to shape a coherent and soundly reasoned rebuttal, it will do yourself and the positions you hold a great service in the future.

  • danieltumser

    You should be aware that anyone who was a former listener of Glenn's (example being myself) can see your arguments for the painfully transparent Glenn Beck/David Barton talking points they are.

    I was at his American Revival in Orlando.

    You should also be aware that Seminary degrees, since the majority of higher learning institutions in America were founded by religious organizations, were as common in the time of our founding as a Bachelor's Degree is today.

    The word “God” is mentioned 0 times in the Declaration of Independence in the context you're dishonestly trying to imply (that it's the christian god)

    The word “God” is not used at all save for the lone instance of the phrase “Nature's God,” I see nothing of christianity, yahweh or Jesus. And if you can't count, thats only 1, not 5.

    Also, the religiosity of the Founders is a moot point because they did not put it into law. In fact, in the framing of the constitution, multiple of the framers tried explicitly to insert god into the wording, Patrick Henry was one of them.

    Those attempts were just as explicitly rejected, each and every single time.

    Private individuals may be religious, that does not make the fruits of their labor inherently religious by association.

    Also, the Declaration, while eloquent and a true testament to Jefferson's philosophical genius, has absolutely no legal standing whatsoever.

    Nice false dichotomy at the end there, or could it possibly be that you are mistaken given a lack of skepticism when it comes to things you want to believe, especially when it broaches the realm of anything having to do at all with religion, a subject which from first principle demands a credulous mind?

  • danieltumser

    I don't know if you were going for a serious generalization, but let me just point out that I post nothing in relation to Glenn's content or other commenters outside of a reasoned critique.

    My qualms with Glenn are his unprofessional presentation, his affinity for fallacious arguments, his selective acceptance of fact and his advocation for trust in the metaphysical and leaving it up to an invisible, intangible entity over advocating for real action by those who agree.

    Prayer did not stop the healthcare bill, though he said enough times that it would and prayer will not stop what Obama and company have planned for the rest of his (hopefully) 1 term in office.

    If Glenn wants to sit around and wait for Exodus-style miracles to occur to stop this, that's his prerogative, but when he encourages others who could be out taking initiative to take real tangible steps towards accomplishing our goals, that's when it becomes a danger of inhibiting the reversal of all this damage done.

    Unless given evidence to the contrary, I give everyone the benefit of the doubt that they are sincere, yourself and glenn included. I don't feel he fakes the crying, though I am suspicious of how commercial breaks seem to synch up with his pauses. I feel he MAY be hamming it up a bit, he's emotional sure, but he plays off it, at least that's how it feels to me.

    You seem to be under the impression that skepticism is the result of some harmful event that has jaded the individual to sincerity and goodness, and possibly that it's a vice? If I'm mistaken please correct me, because this is simply not so. Credulity is what is demanded of fraudsters and religion (i distinguished them separately, going the extra mile here).

    Skepticism is healthy, and a defense against being taken advantage of, which, when Glenn engages in all the problems I have with him that I listed before, is the kind of alarm bells that go off in my head, letting me know to triple-check him. This applies especially to when I agree with him.

    I'm wondering if a Mormon, such as Beck, would be accepted at Liberty U. because of his doctrine.

    His presentation has sermon elements. Beck spoke a lot of God which seems very presumptuous of the students accepting his faith.

  • Tyler

    Glenn doesn't SEEM to be jacked up in the head, but I CAN feel rather skiddish about the idea of him having an ACTUAL doctorate. Wouldn't an HONORARY degree be good enough to MAKE THEIR POINT?

  • Tyler

    As one who believes in God, but not in the Bible…I believe there is good advice here to be taken still. Good job, Glenn. Also, thank you Scoop.

    I would not call it presumptuous to reference God at a Christian University. I would think that if any of the students had issues with the Christian faith (Mormons, like it or not are in fact Christians) they would probably attend a different school.

  • http://www.okiepatriot.blogspot.com/ Greywolfe

    You have to love nihilists. So, the declaration doesn't mention God? What in the name of my granny's grey garders do you think they are refering to when they use the term “Providence”? Capitalized. It was always understood to mean God. Always.

    You refer to yourself as a former listener of Glenn Beck. I find this to be a ploy of leftists. They try to show themselves to be a reformed conservative, when the truth is, just like those of us in the conservative category, you listen to your enemies to know what they're saying. The difference is, we're honest about it.

    You're a leftist, a nihilist, and a morally and intellectually bankrupt individual that won't admit the truth of history and his own country because it flies in the face of your humanistic intentions.

  • KeninMontana

    I find the discourse here interesting, but I see a lot of it as disturbing particularly to attack someone with innuendoes in regards to their faith. I see quite a number of references to fact that Beck is a member of the Mormon faith as if somehow that would discredit his opinion or the information he presents. Myself, I have followed Glenn's show since he started on CNN, and I have never heard him posit the “superiority” of his chosen denomination of faith. In fact I can only think of a handful of times that he actually mentioned being a Mormon, usually affirming it for someone who was bringing up that he is a member of that church, as if that fact would invalidate his statement on a given topic. Faith is something that is deeply personal to each individual and not a “one size fits all” ideaology by any stretch of the imagination. As for myself, my faith is my own personal path and is not subject to any one else's judgement as to whether or not it is “correct” or for me to have to justify. Beside's attacking someone based on their faith alone is the sign of a weak mind, IMO.
    As to Glenn having David Barton (a man who has done his homework) on to discuss the faith of our founders is ,I feel entirely appropriate, and seems to have proven the fact that they were men of faith. He has many documents that are from “original sources” to back up this claim. However it is also evident that our founders took great pains to make sure that we were and are an inclusive republic especially when it comes to faith. Yes the statement that we are “a Christian Nation” gives me pause because it does give the intended or not implication that we are exclusive in this and that the statement seems to fly in the face of the fact that we are a nation of many faiths. But in the ultimate fact that proves the wisdom of these men is the simple fact that we are still one nation, in spite of our own best efforts,it seems sometimes to rip each other apart.
    The practice of using generalites to discredit Beck's presentations, by calling them fallicies without presenting any evidence or sources to back their statements are the epitomy of the “juvinielle” level of debate.(“is so”..”is not”) Beck presents his views and does present sources to back his statements, to just say “he lies” and offer no sources or references to back that claim is another sign of a weak mind used in conjunction with weak talking points, written by some else with an equally weak mind. If you're looking to change my opinion on a subject, state your case (without unfounded personal smears) back it up with source references (blog references and uncertified wiki articles do not count) if you cannot do this,well, then save your worn out “talking points” for those that subscribe to the same as they are wasted here.
    In closing I would once again like to thank TheRightScoop for posting these items and for all the hard work done in bringing us all a place to discuss and debate.

    Kenin, what makes you say that Mormonism is Christian? You can even see in this post where a Mormon explains,

    We believe that Jehovah (Jesus Christ, the Son of God) and Lucifer were spirit brothers.

    This as well as a denial of the Trinity is stated which is a denial of the Christian faith. Even Joseph Smith rejected the Christianity of his day which is a rejection of the same beliefs today.

    What I am calling presumptuous is Beck's referencing of God. He admitted up front that the Liberty crowd does not accept his faith, but he accepts theirs. The presumption is seen when Beck then goes and references God anyway as if the Liberty crowd does accept his faith.

  • danieltumser

    Nice baseless assumptions you make there, greywolfe. Atheist doesn't mean nihilist, like you seem to think. Nor is atheist synonymous with liberal or progressive.

    I'm libertarian, ideology, not party. I'm no leftist. I never claimed to be a conservative because of the giant push by the religious right to usurp the definition of conservatism to be chiefly christian.

    I'm not christian, so I cannot be considered as conservative.

    Assertions are not evidence in support of a point, friend, cute string of ad hominem at the end there.

    You said “God” was referred to 5 times in the declaration, and I pointed out that the word “God” is only used once, and in the context of “Nature's God.”

    But rather than concede that you like to parrot Glenn's talking points (are you going to talk about Whitefield and the black robe brigade next?) about seminary degrees you simply attack me, ad hominem is a tactic of the MSM, the rest of us should strive for better.

    Not once did I claim that the founders weren't, vast majority, religious, most of them very much were, fanatically so in some cases.

    What I said is demonstrable fact, that even though they were religious, this has no direct implication on their work by means of association, trying to make that connection is a leap at best.

    And even if the declaration did have the word “god” 5 times, it would be another moot point because the declaration has 0 legal standing/relevance, it's the Constitution which is the legal document.

    Set aside your derisive name calling and nonsensical assumptions, you do your argument no favors, further denigrate the idea of the “moral majority,” and alienate those who would naturally be your allies in all matters of governance and economics.

  • pparsealot

    I find the dynamic of this topic quite interesting.

    In this corner, we have the liberal left and atheists going head to head with the conservative right along with the Christians plus Mormons.

    Then in the other corner, we have the Christians and Mormons (Mormon supporters) sniping at each other.

    Ring the bell, and may the best team win!

    What is the end point? What does each representative side hope to achieve through the sometimes degrading and viceral responses to each other? Are we truly seeking understanding, through honest debate and dialog? Or, are we just a bunch of “talking heads” really not interested in finding some sort of collaborative interaction, but we just got to find someone to B*/+h at, and prove to them just how wrong they are?

    Does anybody anymore in America really want to work towards a commonality of purpose as AMERICANS? Can we allow for variances without separating and segregating ourselves from each other? Can we coexist and have respect and regard for each other as fellow countrymen and women? But more importantly, can we have consideration for each other individually? If we cannot or will not, then our own history has shown us what will happen.

    I'm not generalizing, just making observations and questioning.

  • KeninMontana

    Christianity in the sense of the recognition and veneration of Jesus Christ whom they venerate. BTW Jehovah is the angilization of the Hebrew name of God not the name of Jesus Christ unless you or they are in fact referring to the concept of the trinty as one being. Is not the God that the Baptists pray to the same God the Catholics pray to as well as the Methodists,Episcopalins and Lutherans. Are you asserting that one particular form of Christianity has it correct and everyone else has it wrong? What would indeed be presumptuous would be making that assumption. We could sit here all day and nitpick the varied traditions and practices of each branch of Christian faith. If indeed there is as Christians maintain One God (I for one would never be so arrogant as to proclaim I knew the answer to that) then does not it logically stand to reason that they are all speaking to the same entity? Was not Lucifer once a heavenly being? Does it not follow with the Christian teachings of all beings as being brothers and sisters in the eyes of God? It seems to me he was extending an olive branch in recognition that beyond all the trappings of religious ceremony that he believes that the God of the Protestants is one in the same as the God of the Catholics etc. BTW just so you know I have family members that are Mormon and they do believe in God ,Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. They just have a difference of opinion as to who has the authority to “speak for God” in the earthly sense. Not a whole lot different than the split between the Protestants and Rome at its crux. Apparently Liberty U. takes a more all encompassing and accepting view of the different denominations of Christianity than others do and I for one applaude them for it.

    We live in a dynamic country, so I guess you could say a microcosm of America? I think that airing out our differences in debate and discussion a healthy thing, a way that we come to understand one another's point of view. Some may be swayed, some may find themselves corrected. We can educate each other, which is never a bad thing. I think that one thing that has always distinguished this country from every other country is this ability we seem to have of being able to vigorously debate and air our differences and come out the other side of it stronger.We may not always agree on every issue but, the one thing we have in common that which keeps us together is the fact that we are Americans. That is just my observation.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed that. I couldn't help noticing his countless comparisons of himself to Moses, either. Still, for a man of his… beliefs… he didn't do too bad. I'll give him credit for the good parts of his speech.

  • http://www.okiepatriot.blogspot.com/ Greywolfe

    Ok. So, based on what you just said, I can safely assume you are very much the nihilist. You have to be in order for you to justify your religious beliefs.

    Here's the thing, I am a self educated man. I decided that I didn't know enough about my country and decided that I needed to research and find out the truth. So, as this all started with bbimajeep's assertion that this is not a christian nation, and your defending that ignorant statement, I'll just post my proofs and see if you are big enough to admit either that you are ignorant and open to learning truth, or that you are hopelessly driven to rewrite our history to favor your particular faith. We'll see.

    “[I]t is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.” -John Adams

    “[W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . . Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” -John Adams

    “Our liberty depends on our education, our laws, and habits . . . it is founded on morals and religion, whose authority reigns in the heart, and on the influence all these produce on public opinion before that opinion governs rulers.” -Fisher Ames (framer of the 1st Amendment)

    “[T]he primary objects of government are the peace, order, and prosperity of society. . . . To the promotion of these objects, particularly in a republican government, good morals are essential. Institutions for the promotion of good morals are therefore objects of legislative provision and support: and among these . . . religious institutions are eminently useful and important. . . . [T]he legislature, charged with the great interests of the community, may, and ought to countenance, aid and protect religious institutions—institutions wisely calculated to direct men to the performance of all the duties arising from their connection with each other, and to prevent or repress those evils which flow from unrestrained passion.” -Oliver Ellesworth (Chief Justice of the Supreme Court)

    “I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that “except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it.” I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better, than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word down to future ages. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing governments by human wisdom and leave it to chance, war and conquest.

    I therefore beg leave to move that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business, and that one or more of the clergy of this city be requested to officiate in that service.” -Ben Franklin (Source: James Madison, The Records of the Federal Convention of 1787)

    And last but not least…

    “No free government now exists in the world, unless where Christianity is acknowledged, and is the religion of the country.” – Pennsylvania Supreme Court, 1824. Updegraph v. Commonwealth; 11 Serg. & R. 393, 406 (Sup.Ct. Penn. 1824).

    Assertions like yours and bbimajeep are a lie only perpetrated in the last 70 odd years. But buggers like yourself and bbimajeep are hell bent on rewriting our history to fit your political views.

    I've got books full of our Founding father's writings of the period as well as rulings by the supreme court of the time and congressional decrees. All point to the God of Abraham as our benefactor. What is your proofs to the contrary?

    Oh, you want to ignore all the points I made and dive into quote mining? The fallacious tactic perfected by fundamentalist apologetics in matters of science? Okay.

    “As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion. . .” The Treaty of Tripoli, written under George Washington, ratified under John Adams

    “Notwithstanding the general progress made within the two last centuries in favour of this branch of liberty, and the full establishment of it, and in some parts of our Country, there remains in others a strong bias towards the old error, that without some sort of alliance or coalition between Government and Religion neither can be duly supported: Such indeed is the tendency to such a coalition, and such its corrupting influence on both the parties, that the danger cannot be too carefully guarded against. . .and in a government of opinion, like ours, the only effectual guard must be found in the soundness and stability of the general opinion of the subject. Every new and successful example therefore of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters, is of importance. And I have no doubt that every new example, will succeed, as every past one has done, in showing that religion and government will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.” James Madison

    “It was the belief of all sects at one time that the establishment of Religion by law, was right and necessary; that the true religion ought to be established in exclusion of every other; and that the only question to be decided was which was the true religion. The example of HOlland proved that a toleration of sects, dissenting from the established sect, was safe and even useful. The example of the Colonies, now States, which rejected religious establishments altogether, proved that all Sects might be safely and advantageously put on a footing of equal and entire freedom. . .We are teaching the world the great truth that governments do better without Kings and Nobles than with them. The merit will be doubled by the other lesson that Religion flourishes in greater purity, without than with the aid of government.” James Madison

    “The purpose of seperation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.” – James Madison

    “The question before the human race is, whether the God of Nature shall govern the world by his own laws, or whether priests and kings shall rule it by fictitious miracles?” – John Adams

    “The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity. Nowhere in the gospels do we find a precept for Creeds, Confessions, Oaths, Doctrines, and whole cartloads of other foolish trumpery that we find in Christianity.” – John Adams

    “. . . Some books against Deism fell into my hands. . . It happened that they wrought an effect on my quite contrary to what was intended by them; for the arguments of the Deists, which were quoted to be refuted, appeared to me much stronger than the refutations; in short, I soon became a thorough Deist.” – Benjamin Franklin

    “The way to see by faith is to shut the eye to reason.” – Ben Franklin

    “Lighthouses are more helpful than churches.” – Ben Franklin

    I also have pages of research done from a recent term paper on Thomas Jefferson's secularization of the four Gospels in “The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth” including multiple letter excerpts to friends and colleagues on the subject thoroughly demonstrating that was no more a Christian than he was an Epicurean (reference, letter to William Short) and that is in the philosophic sense, not in the magical or metaphysical.

    The Pennsylvania Supreme Court did not found this nation. Nor does it have federal authority.

    I've already responded to your false assumption that I am a flat out nihilist, if you insist continuing operating under that impression then you either suffer from a misapprehension or are arguing in bad faith, thinking that for some reason I am insincere at best.

    If that's the case, please do tell, inform me what kind of nihilist I am, I'm dying to know, please tell me all about myself, I doubt you could sound any more cocksure and condescending if you tried.

    My stance on the un-evidenced metaphysical requires no justification, it is a lack of any positive claim. It's potentially even a null hypothesis depending on how one would define the agnostic parts of disbelief. It is in fact your positive claims pertaining to the supernatural that require justification for a rational acceptance.

    I can't resist, how do you justify your lack of belief in Zeus?
    How do you justify your lack of belief in Odin?
    How do you Justify your lack of belief in Minerva?
    How do you Justify your lack of belief in Krishna?
    How do you justify your lack of belief in the sun god Ra?
    How do you justify your lack of belief in Ahura Mazda?
    How do you justify your lack of belief in pixies, faeries, elves, leprechauns or Santa Claus?

    None of those are faiths, like you assert I hold, they are lack of faith, but please put words in my mouth again.

    Only one of my quotes really has any relevance in the legal context at all, and it is the binding Treaty of Tripoli, written under Washington and signed under Adams.

    Only one of your quotations likewise has any relevance, though oddly it is directly contrary to the Establishment clause by Oliver Ellsworth, was it written as the prevailing opinion of a supreme court case while he was Chief Justice, or was it his personal opinion as a private citizen outside of his decisions as a judge? If the latter is the case, you could have cited Patrick Henry as well, one of many framers of the constitution who attempted to push your god into the wording and was rejected outright, and it would have as little meaning.

    We could quote mine the founders all day and night, but it's still fallacious, what matters is the Constitution and the fact that Christianity is not the religion of the United States (government). We're a nation of (mostly) Christians, a nation founded by (mostly) Christians, but not a nation founded on Christianity.

    One can be both religious in his personal beliefs, and secular in matters of governance, such was the case of our Founders, and is demanded of our judges. Neutral stance in conflicts of religion outside legal matters.

    You also seem to be operating under the continued assumption that I have a political ideology greatly different from yourself. If you are a free market capitalist in favor of greatly limited government, which only draws authority from the consent of the governed, leaving private individuals alone save for when citizens engage in abuses against others, then you and I would be in agreement.

    I've said it before and I feel I'll have to say it again, merely asserting something doesn't make it true, that goes for your god and for aspects of my character or ideology.

    Then we will discuss the merits of whether this is or isn't a Christian nation in it's founding.

    but the fact that untill nearly 40 years into the last century, God (christian God) was an institution of our government going back to it's founding. It is telling that the first mass produced document that our Congress produced was an English language Bible for use in Public schools.

    But hey, I'm not averse to looking at your “proofs”. i would love to see what contexts those statements were made in.

    Having had a very similar conversation with the same gentleman, I just wanted to say your replies were first-rate. While I'm more of a left-lib–and a believer, taboot–I'm good with America being a theistically pluralistic place, where every individual is free to practice whatever their faith or lack of it compels them (barring the obviously illegal and immoral, of course.) I'm even good with those who have beliefs other than my own trying to persuade me to believe as they do–I think it's healthy to exchange ideas and ideals with folks who ain't like you, whether it be religiously or politically or socially–but I have little patience with the openly intolerant. Those who start sentences with “(All) Christians are…” or “(All) Muslims need to…” or “(All) atheists hate…” (and stated or not, that “all” is ever-present and pretty obvious, besides) tend to be exhibiting their own intolerance (and sometimes, bigotry) for those not like them.

    The fact is, most of us think we're on the one true path to enlightenment–and that everyone not walking our path… well… isn't–but I don't go in much for the folks who cannot help but point out that everyone who isn't of their particular faith (or lack of it) is heading for the flaming fires, or just wasting their time here on Earth, or whatever… Whether or not one's faith in G-d, the gods, or the scientific method teaches that that's true is kinda besides the point… Here in America anyway, all those idiots, heathens, and believers in fairy-tales have the God-given/natural right to put all their love and faith and trust in the wrong scriptures or set of beliefs. As far as I'm concerned, anyway, THAT'S what this country was in part founded on; my right to worship (or not) as I choose, and your right to worship (or not) as you choose.

    (And to think I only stepped in because the guy used the phrase “american nihilist” in one of his replies…)

  • Saloeffler34

    Pathetic and full of heresy.

    Glenn Beck is a traitor of Jesus Christ with his Mormon faith and high sounding words that often sound so good but are filled with lies – postmodern lies. Listen to his speech at Liberty’s commencement and weep, then get mad, then cry to the Lord of Heaven and Earth for true revival in our land; for it is being filled with lies, lies, lies: http://www.therightscoop.com/video-glenn-becks-liberty-university-commencement-address.

    The words sound one thing but the words are given with a new meaning. He mentions God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, faith, atonement; but what does he mean as a Mormon? Do not follow him; he will lead you to error. He constantly talks about human endeavor, creative power; then he uses blasphemy with the use of ‘I am that I am’ – Beck uses this phrase as a phrase of self identity (at 24 minutes into his speech) – which is false; it fits Mormon doctrine of becoming gods.

    Further one liners:

    ‘We are meant to be happy’

    ‘Forgiveness is divine’ – What does that mean?

    ‘The atonement is real; you are worthy’ – This is trash talk and it dishonors the Lord of the Word!

    ‘Hell is an eternity of regret – not being able to forgive yourself mainly’ – Is this what Jesus taught?

    ‘People are good; they want to do the right thing but they just do not know how’

    He ends his talk with the audacity that leaves these words in the Name of Jesus Christ Amen!

    What blasphemy!

    Do not give in to his crying sad words. Do not follow his emotional traps.

    Take a look at what Mormons really believes. The following comes from HereIblog.com

    Brief Comparison between Mormonism and Christianity

    Mormonism

    God
    More than one god. God the father is an exalted man who was as we are now and has a body of flesh and bones.

    Christianity

    God
    There is only one God who is spirit and eternal.

    Mormonism:

    Trinity
    The father, son and holy spirit are three gods separate and distinct from each other.

    Christianity:

    Trinity
    One God Who exists in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    Mormonism:

    Jesus
    Spirit brother of Lucifer, a literal off-spring of god the father.

    Chr.:

    Jesus
    Eternal Son of God, second person of the Trinity.

    Mor.:

    Holy Spirit
    A distinct god from father and son, a spirit man and a spirit son of God the Father.

    Chr.:

    Holy Spirit
    The third eternal person of the Trinity.

    Mor.:

    Salvation
    By presenting our best efforts and obedience to god’s commands and then by grace. Man can become a god.

    Chr.:

    Salvation
    A free gift from God received by grace alone through faith alone and not by works.

Listen to his speech at Liberty’s commencement and weep, then get mad, then cry to the Lord of Heaven and Earth for true revival in our land; for it is being filled with lies, lies, lies: http://www.therightscoop.com/video-glenn-becks-liberty-university-commencement-address.

    The words sound one thing but the words are given with a new meaning. He mentions God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, faith, atonement; but what does he mean as a Mormon? Do not follow him; he will lead you to error. He constantly talks about human endeavor, creative power; then he uses blasphemy with the use of ‘I am that I am’ – Beck uses this phrase as a phrase of self identity (at 24 minutes into his speech) – which is false; it fits Mormon doctrine of becoming gods.

    Further one liners:

    ‘We are meant to be happy’

    ‘Forgiveness is divine’ – What does that mean?

    ‘The atonement is real; you are worthy’ – This is trash talk and it dishonors the Lord of the Word!

    ‘Hell is an eternity of regret – not being able to forgive yourself mainly’ – Is this what Jesus taught?

    ‘People are good; they want to do the right thing but they just do not know how’

    He ends his talk with the audacity that leaves these words in the Name of Jesus Christ Amen!

    What blasphemy!

    Do not give in to his crying sad words. Do not follow his emotional traps.

    Take a look at what Mormons really believes. The following comes from HereIblog.com

    Brief Comparison between Mormonism and Christianity

    Mormonism

    God
    More than one god. God the father is an exalted man who was as we are now and has a body of flesh and bones.

    Christianity

    God
    There is only one God who is spirit and eternal.

    Mormonism:

    Trinity
    The father, son and holy spirit are three gods separate and distinct from each other.

    Christianity:

    Trinity
    One God Who exists in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    Mormonism:

    Jesus
    Spirit brother of Lucifer, a literal off-spring of god the father.

    Chr.:

    Jesus
    Eternal Son of God, second person of the Trinity.

    Mor.:

    Holy Spirit
    A distinct god from father and son, a spirit man and a spirit son of God the Father.

    Chr.:

    Holy Spirit
    The third eternal person of the Trinity.

    Mor.:

    Salvation
    By presenting our best efforts and obedience to god’s commands and then by grace. Man can become a god.

    Chr.:

    Salvation
    A free gift from God received by grace alone through faith alone and not by works.
