I haven’t seen too many episodes of Cenk Uygur‘s MSNBC show, but maybe I need to start watching. There are other media personalities who will call out Glenn Beck, but very few who do so on religious grounds:
All you have to do is claim that God spoke to you and you can say or do just about anything.
That goes for Beck, pastors, and everyday Christians. God is just used an excuse for saying whatever it is you’re already thinking.
You’ll never hear someone say, “I was against gay marriage, but God told me it was ok.”
We have to keep pointing out how crazy the God Excuse sounds. Maybe, at some point, they’ll start taking responsibility for their own thoughts and actions.
