    ….aren’t marriage equality issues human issues, too? and, you know, the *issue* of living in a culture not predisposed to ignorant hateful bigotry against who you are as a human being?

    Looks like the Becks might be hitting that bottle a little too much. With the extra weight and sunken eyes, I suppose it could be depression or some other ailment, but the puffy/veiny nose doesn’t lie.

    I’ve only seen him a few times, and he’s clearly unhinged. Cannot imagine working with him.

    Also, nice shirt. Isn’t that the one that Aaron Schock got mocked for when he wore it to the White House picnic?

    Have things gotten so bad that when an archconservative says he doesnt think gays should be put in camps or beaten on the street we’re ready to carry him on our shoulders? What Beck is saying is the minimum that any decent human should believe. No kudos, sorry

    I am not one who can swear by Gaydar; I’ve been wrong about people many times. But I get a very strong feeling about Glenn Beck. Always did. I believe he is a closeted LGBT person, working out his sex and gender issues in public. And I agree that he has mental health issues as well.

    I’m with Amjay on this one. Nobody except the nuttiest of nutjobs will disagree with Mr. Beck about this. Let’s have NOM and company take the attitude of “every crumb thrown our way is a banquet”. We should be beyond that.

    So, um, what’s with the bear-bearded look, Glenn? Is this the portent of things to come? Are you finally ready to drop the charade and come out of your closet? Regardless, too little, too late. You’ve made millions out of demonizing gay people. Sit down and shut up.

    Have we become so jaded that when an archconservative stands up against those that call for our incineration and death we still castigate him?

    He’s doing the right thing. His children have been telling him that we’re not the monsters we’ve been portrayed to be and yet here we are again being that monster to him when he does stand up against our most disturbed enemies.

    Beck is speaking out against hetero-fascists. The very worst of our enemies. The one who write ‘kill the gays’ laws. Scott Lively and his ilk. And doing it in front of an audience that cheers them. I know he didn’t jump on the full equality bandwagon with this but what he did do was take a giant first step and challenged others that watch him to understand what they’ve been doing.

    Thanks for speaking out Glenn Beck. Keep talking & listening to your kids and keep growing your humanity.

    The death of the right wing will come as they pass control to the fascists within their party. It has already begun. They fail to realize in their desire to control the American public they are becoming closer to undesirable Russia.

    I have two feral cats…they hate each other and would surely like to kill each other. However…when the sun goes down and the coyotes are looking for a meal…these cats become the best of buddies & sleep joined at the hip. Then the sun comes up in the morning and they’re scratching each others eyes out again. It’s just about what keeps you alive…and relevant.

    “Vague comment, vague comment, false equivalency, vague comment, feel good folksy comment…”

    The problem is when it really comes to taking a stand on an issue his “let’s all get along” schtick goes right out the window. You sure SOUND good, Glenn!

    Beck, like Oreilly makes sense once in a while- and I must say he does look nice with the beard- and while it’s easy to attack him at least he seems to be reaching out.

    “I am not one who can swear by Gaydar; I’ve been wrong about people many times. But I get a very strong feeling about Glenn Beck. Always did.”

    I sorta agree; furthermore in my experience although all antigay religions have closet cases in them, Mormonism specifically seems to attract many closeted converts. IIRC Beck used to be Catholic. The most aggressive freak I’ve ever encountered in my work setting was a raging closet case who thought that converting me to Mormonism and moving to Utah (he was on temp assignment to our DC office) to be with him – spiritually of course – would mean we would live happily ever after in our magical underwear. Just googled him, could barely remember his name after 10 years. He shows up in a Utah divorce listing at utahsrights.com. Looks like his beard lasted about 10 years LOL.

    Glenn Beck is a classic manic-depressive of the form where he swings very strongly into mania and then pseudo-repents when the depressive phase begins. He needs medication and lifelong therapy by a good liberal Democrat qualified psychiatrist.
