    What does this failed comic entertainer make of the Pope’s statement about atheists? Of course, he can claim that Francis is a Jesuit and messing with things as Jesuits always do in the Jesuitical way, or that the Pope–the POPE!!–is sliding toward a heretical Universalism. I suppose part of Glenna’s response depends on what he is told by his Minders in Salt Lake.

    Right, Wolf Blitzer went around asking people if they were atheists, then asked the woman if he could interview her. Only a moron would believe that.

    “the forces of Spiritual darkness”;
    “atheist plight”

    What is this lunatic rambling on about ?
    Seems to me he has been watching too many episodes with “The Force” and ” The Dark Side”.

    It’s fiction, Glenn, you little scamp, fiction.

    Seriously, that nice lady is the force of spiritual darkness???? And here I was thinking that she might catch some flack from the townspeople.

    The man is truely a hate-filled creep. Spewing garbage on a disaster survivor from the comfort and security of his studio.

    Soliciting attention and fame through inflammatory statements is his Glenn Beck makes his money. He’s just a well-paid, well-known troll. Nothing more. And we should never feed the troll.

  7. says

    Glen Beck needs to get a grip. Poor fool sees a conspiracy EVERYWHERE.

    No prize in his Crackerjacks? CONSPIRACY!

    Bad cell phone reception this morning? CONSPIRACY!

    The NY Jets let go of Tebow? CONSPIRACY!

    Glen Beck went from being a lost Papist to being a member of the sick Mormon cult. Some of the things he says I agree with, but until he releases the Satanic bonds that hold him to the devilish Masonic cult of the Mormons and comes unto true Christianity, I cannot take him seriously.

    As to the atheists with her child, she will answer to God come the great day of Judgement.

    @ helen:

    And I can’t take seriously anyone who uses “unto”.

    ” Lost Papist”
    “sick Mormon”
    “Satanic bonds”
    “devilish Masonic cult”

    Do you ever reread the $hit that you write ?

    As much as I hate it, I agree with Beck with that the question was asked (and reiterated) in an odd way. But who flippin’ cares? What’s more of a problem, and a direct threat to this world, is Beck’s rhetoric!

    @UFFDA, I completely agree!

    “Spiritual darkness”??? The atheists I know are some of the most spiritual people around! Just because you’re an atheist does not mean that you’re not spiritual in any way. It just means that you don’t believe in some higher intelligence that created all we’re aware of. Spirituality is so much more than that.

    You can still have feelings (and beliefs!) pertaining to a sense of peace, a wish of purpose, the connection to others, and ideas about the meaning of life to you personally. And it’s idiotic to claim otherwise, Beckypoo!

    I agree that the question was weird and forced, but seriously, did he not notice how the FIRST time Blitzer mentioned God, the woman just deferred answering? Then he weirdly pressed the issue. She was definitely not trying to be an atheist advocate, she just refused to lie. And now I’m in love with her 😉

  12. desmond says

    Atheist here. I guess Glen Beck is onto us. We’ll have to change our nefarious plan now. Meeting at 7pm tonight, be there!

    Please bring your own candle, you know how dark it will be.

    There are three options here for this “God” fellow you speak of:

    1. He doesn’t exist
    2. He is a creator, but nothing more
    3. He has influence, thus is responsible for the tornado that wiped out the entire town

    UNDER NONE OF THESE OPTIONS WOULD YOU EVER NEED TO THANK HIM

  14. UFFDA says

    Is this the god that was born of a virgin? Father, son, holy ghost…how does it go?

    Yeah, right. Thank him for whatever, but you can’t thank him for plausability anymore than for clarity.

  15. gomez says

    blizter is a hamhanded clown, that’s why the question sounded weird and forced.

    the young atheist mom is a force of light in oklahoma, and now for non-believers across this country

  16. Bryan says

    I’m actually going to half agree with Beck here. While it’s totally ASININE to say that it was a plant/conspiracy. I do agree that while watching the interview, I did think the way Blitzer asked the question was kinda odd and random. “Do you feel blessed, do you want to thank the Lord” Even before the woman answered she was an atheist, I was already kinda thinking, err what an odd thing to say.

    I do wonder why Blitzer asked such an odd question, but it’s pretty stupid to think it was a plant.

  17. Bill says

    @Jack M: Here’s my theory of what went on. Wolf Blitzer had probably just interviewed several Bible thumpers in a row (they sprout like mushrooms in Oklahoma) and they all “praised the Lord”. So, he expected the same response from this survivor, asked when she didn’t say what everyone else was saying, and to his surprise it turns out that he had stumbled upon the town’s atheist. Of course they showed that one – it was different whereas all the others were predictable and hence boring.

  18. Gry says

    1) It was a phenomenally stupid question to ask, given that other mothers’ kids did die.

    2) The lady in question was actually quite gracious in her answer.

  19. Tom Cardellino says

    Someone seems to be doubting his faith and engaging in a little self-serving faux paranoia! Have to keep those pay-per-view rubes all misinformed and “concerned.”

  20. andrew says

    The tornado like floods and every other natural disaster should convince everyone that there is no “Heavenly Father” watching over us. If this billion gallaxies universe has a creator, it is not in the slightest bit interested in what happens on this little insignificant rock we call earth.

  21. Nelson says

    The “forces of spiritual darkness” are , of course, rationality, science, humanity, kindness, dignity for the individual. I don’t see any of that in Beck’s type of Christian. I have really never met an unkind atheist in my life (and I am one).

  22. Lew says

    So Helen, let me get this right, the athiest and her child will have to face GOD, Heres my question to you and others like you. God see’s and hears all, that is the theme according to the bible,So if this is true than God had to know she was a Athiest before Wolf Blitzer or Glen Beck did, would you not agree, so why is it God didn’t take her or her child, on that day or days or weeks before, why is it we have to wait for the Judgement Day. Maybe God is waiting for you so you can be a Eye witness, when he Judges her. According to the Bible she is Judged already. She told you shes a Athiest, God Knows that too, so I hate to rain on your parade and Glens, but oh well!!!
