Glenn Beck Poses As Uniter, Suggests He Supports Gay Marriage

Reported by Ellen - August 12, 2010 -

Glenn Beck was obviously trying to do a little bit of image rehab on The O’Reilly Factor last night (8/11/10) and Bill O’Reilly was, apparently, happy to help. In a segment “asking” why Beck avoids culture war issues, Beck claimed to be interested in uniting the country and even suggested he supports gay marriage. Or at least is not against it enough to want to discuss it on his show.

“You don’t do a lot of culture war stuff… Why don’t you do the culture warrior stuff?” O’Reilly asked. He went on to probe why Beck hasn’t covered gay marriage.

“We’ve got bigger fish to fry,” Beck answered. “The country is burning down!”

O'Reilly continued, "Isn’t that one of the reasons because we’re getting away from the traditional way we used to live into this progressive – "

Beck interrupted. "Instead of arguing about these divisive things, let’s get back to our churches and our synagogues."

O'Reilly pressed further. "Do you believe — do you believe that gay marriage is a threat to the country in any way? ...Is it going to harm?"

"No," Beck said. "...I believe that Thomas Jefferson said, 'If it neither breaks my leg or picks my pocket, what difference is it to me?'"

O'Reilly said, "That’s interesting. Because I don’t think a lot of people understand that about you."

Beck later said, "Abortion is killing," but that he doesn’t discuss it because O’Reilly covers it. “We both agree the country is in trouble… I believe that faith is going to be the antidote that we need."

Right, pious Beck, the guy who never saw anyone remotely connected to the Obama administration he didn’t want to hate monger against, is looking to bring the country together and bring us all back to God.

Does Beck really think that his incessantly inflammatory, race-baiting attacks on our first black president will lead his viewers "back to God?" Or is it a convenient way to justify such ungodly behavior? I report, you decide.
