Beck Untainted

By City Weekly Readers
Posted // December 16,2009 -

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and as a listener of Glenn Beck, I would like to comment on “Latter-day Taint” [Dec. 10, City Weekly]. Glenn Beck is not a taint, but rather, a shining example of what a good man ought to be. He completely turned his life around after a hellish struggle with drug and alcohol abuse and has striven to become a better man ever since.

His conversion to Mormonism had nothing to do with politics. It was an admonition to boldly and honestly question everything that led him to join the church. The teachings of the church simply made sense to him. In addition, he witnessed an attitude of sincerity among the members. Watch Glenn Beck: An Unlikely Mormon to hear his story in his own words.

There is no “brand” of Mormonism.

The church teaches only one gospel and encourages its members to abide by it. There are, however, members who abandon gospel principles for wealth, power, prestige and popularity. Wouldn’t it be flakey for the church to do the same in response to cultural pressure?

Beck does not claim that government is the agent of Satan. Section 134 of Doctrine and Covenants, canonized LDS Scripture, explains very clearly that government is for our benefit so long as it fulfills its duty to secure and promote the freedom of the people. A corrupt and abusive government, e.g., one that is communist, is evil, however.

Beck gets under the politicians’ skin because he is completely nonpartisan while undauntedly exposing how corrupt they are. Anyone who honestly questions the issues like he has will surely come to recognize the same things.

BECK IS JUST A GREEDY BASTARD AND A JOKE, SPEADING HATE FEAR AND LIES TO THE IGNORANT WHO CHOOSE TO FOLLOW HIS INSANE RANTS. THESE PEOPLE ARE TOO LAZY TO EDUCATE THEMSELVES AND THEY FOLLOW HIM LIKE LEMMINGS, JUST LIKE THE ONES WHO FOLLOWED BUSH INTO IRAQ. TRUE MORMONS SCARE THE HELL OUT OF ME, THEY ARE SO BLINDED BY THEIR "FAITH", THEY WON'T SEE THE WRITING ON THE WALL. THEIR FAITH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GOD, IT'S MORE A GANGSTER MENTALITY, REAPING HUGE PROFITS FOR A SELECT FEW. THE MORMONS DON'T WANT THINKERS, ONLY FOLLOWERS. BECK IS TO MORMON ZEALOTS WHAT OSAMA BIN LADEN IS TO MUSLIM EXTREMIST, A DESTRUCTIVE CANCER ON THE HUMAN RACE.

I believe an honest investigation of Beck's search for religion will turn up some not so positive results. This man uses Mormonism the way he uses everything. There are more than a few verifiable accounts out there of Beck agreeing to Mormonism at his wife's insistence before she'd have sex with him.

Beck is the worst kind of scum and Mormons would be smart to distance themselves from him.
