Glenn Beck Predicts Church Attendance Will Drop 50% If Gay Marriage is Legalized: VIDEO

Beck

Conservative nut Glenn Beck has predicted that a SCOTUS ruling in support of same-sex marriage will lead to a drop of 50 percent in church attendance in the next five years "because the stigma of going to church will be too much,” reports Right Wing Watch.

Said Beck, who last month suggested that the outcry following Indiana’s controversial #RFRA law would lead to Christians being put into concentration camp:

"Mark my words, if gay marriage goes through the Supreme Court and gay marriage becomes fine and they can put teeth in it so now they can go after churches, like the president's lawyer says, 50 percent of our churches will fall away.  

"Meaning, within five years, 50 percent of the congregants will fall away from their church because they won't be able to take the persecution...within five years, 50 percent of the people that you sit next to in church will not be there. And not because [they agree with marriage equality but] because they'll say, 'I can't do that, I'll lose my job, people are picketing my house, I just can't do that'”.

David Barton Explains to Glenn Beck Why Government Has A Moral Duty To Ban Homosexuality - VIDEO

David Barton

You know you’re dealing with someone unhinged when Glenn Beck comes across as the moderate one.

Speaking on Beck’s television show last week, wingnut David Barton weighed in on the supposed “rights” of Christians to discriminate against gay people, reports Right Wing Watch.

BeckBarton argued that the government is overstepping its jurisdiction by requiring Christians to violate their god-given rights, which he bizarrely illustrated by comparing those rights to someone repainting some else's car because they didn't like the original color.

However, when Beck commented that "the government can't say 'you can't be a homosexual' because ... that's how you practice your life,” Barton went on to suggest that homosexuality could be banned because the government has a moral duty to protect its citizens:

"The government's always gotten involved. You can't marry your brother and sister, you can't marry your first cousin. So there's always been things that protect the moral climate of the society ... You've always had standards on behavior.”

Back in 2013, Barton said that right-thinking Christians shouldn't drink Starbucks coffee because the company is "pouring all this money into destroying traditional marriage."

Always level-headed and never one to catastrophize, Glenn Beck earlier this week said that attacks on Indiana’s ‘right to discriminate’ law will lead to people being placed in concentration camps and killed, reports Right Wing Watch.

Beck claimed that "gay activists will boycott, will make it uncomfortable, they'll smear them, they'll just ratchet up the hate" against business owners refusing to provide services to same-sex weddings.

"Let's stop forcing each other to do things. You don't change anything. That ends up in concentration camps. You just start grinding and grinding and grinding away until you're in separate worlds and nobody talks to each other and then, whoever has the power, round 'em up and kill 'em because those guys are the problem.”

Glenn Beck Warns Dolce & Gabbana Backlash Could End Culture And Science: VIDEO

Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck has weighed in on Dolce & Gabbana’s controversial comments about same-sex families and in vitro fertilization, reports Right Wing Watch.

Following the comments by the Italian Catholic designers in support of the “traditional family,” Elton John, Martina Navratilova and others called for a boycott of the company.

Speaking on his television show on Tuesday, Beck said that such a boycott would be like locking Galileo in a tower for opposing the conventional science of the day.

"Is this the kind of freedom that we're at? Anyone who feels the same as Dolce and Gabbana, let me ask you, are they empowered to express their view or are they now afraid that Hollywood and progressives will come after them?

“The party of progress is making progress indeed, back to the Dark Ages, back to the days when differing scientific views were labeled heresy and black magic. As the march toward conformity continues, America gets farther and farther away from the place where those who will change the world with art and science and music, those who will bring on the next Renaissance just might find themselves locked up in a tower and sadly never paint the next Mona Lisa.”

Glenn Beck: Elect Gohmert Speaker of the House to Save America - VIDEO

BECK

Bastion of enlightened thinking Glenn Beck is urging Republicans to call on their members of Congress to vote for Rep. Louie Gohmert as Speaker of the House now that Gohmert has announced he is challenging Rep. John Boehner for his party's top leadership post in the House of Representatives reports Right Wing Watch:

“Louie is not going to compromise, Louie is the guy. We have another chance, America, we have another chance. Please don’t pass this signpost, please, there’s another exit, take it,” Beck said on his show today, adding that conservatives should consider themselves “done with the Republican Party” if Boehner secures re-election.

“Shut the switchboard down, tell everybody you know in the freedom movement, ‘Louie Gohmert.’ Call them now,” he said.

You may recall Gohmert's previous remarks comparing gay rights advocates to Nazis as well as his concern about gay massages in the military that notably (and hilariously) landed him in the cross-hares of comedian Stephen Colbert.

Glenn Beck: Republicans Will Lose on Immigration, Just Like They Did on Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-11-07 at 7.44.23 AM

In a discussion on post-election politics with Bill O'Reilly the other day, Glenn Beck (in a rare moment of semi-lucidity) said Republicans would be wise to not pursue impeachment hearings against President Obama over immigration policy.

Said Beck:

They are going to do to illegals what they did to the debate on gay marriage. On gay marriage they made it about marriage and gay people. Instead, the argument should have been "Does government have a role in anybody's marriage?" But what they did is they personalized it so people said "I know I guy like Bob, he's fine!" They're going to do the same thing with illegal immigration and the Republican will lose that battle. 

O'Reilly, as always, disagreed - saying the two issues were unrelated and that the Republicans would win the immigration debate regardless.
