Anti-Gay Pastor's Column Located Next To Video Of Men Making Out

Beck

Anti-gay fundamentalist David Barton — a man who thinks the government should "regulate homosexuality" or else the nation will be brought to its knees — might be interested to know that his most recent column on Glenn Beck's website The Blaze has a video ad of two men kissing right next to it. The video, of course, is for HBO's new gay drama Looking.

 

Plus, Pastor Barton recommended Ben Hur as one of his fave holiday reads?! Isn't Ben Hur a little gay

Glenn Beck Explains America's Politics and Problems in Insane 'Wizard of Oz' Segment: VIDEO

Beck

Glenn Beck used a set of Wizard of Oz dolls (some of which he used to violently maul each other) to explain America's problems in an insane segment last night in his show The Blaze, Right Wing Watch reports:

Beck played with dolls for ten minutes before explaining that Mitch McConnell is the Good Witch of the North, while the NSA is the Wicked Witch of the West, and Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and John Boehner are the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, respectively.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Values Voter Audience Giggles At Gay Persecution: VIDEO

Glennbeck

Glenn Beck was a speaker at the Values Voter Summit last weekend, and he took his time in the spotlight to discuss President Obama's supposed reign of terror on American religious freedom. And what better (read: more offensive) way to demonstrate than through concentration camp badges from the Nazi era? 

At one point in the speech, Beck touched on the purple triangle. He asked his audience who had to wear the purple triangle in concentration camps, to which one person replied, gay. "No, not gay, that was pink," Beck responded (later stating that the triangle was meant for people who study the Bible), and the audience broke out into a short, but disturbing, round of laughter. That they would laugh at anything related to such acts of atroicity is scary enough, but Beck and his audience were also blind to the inaccuracy of the speech and its symbols.

Right Wing Watch reports:

Seeing that Beck was making his remarks at an event sponsored by an organization — the American Family Association — that believes that gay people were behind the Holocaust, it is curious that summit participants found it so funny that the Nazis tried to exterminate gay people.

Beck’s main contention that the Nazis went after people who “knew anything about the Bible” is also incorrect.

The purple triangle Beck held up was actually used to mark Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Jehovah’s Witnesses at the time were known as Bible Students or Bibelforscher, a reference to the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Bible Student movement.

Sharing inaccurate information and enjoying each other's inflated sense of persecution seems like a wonderful way to spend a weekend, don't you think?

American History According to Glenn Beck: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 4.33.51 PM

In case you missed it, Right Wing Watch has compiled footage from Glenn Beck's bizarre three-day long Independence Day 'historical' celebration in Salt Lake City, Utah earlier this month. Attendees included Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), and Michelle Malkin.  Naturally, I use the word 'historical' quite loosely. 

Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 4.35.01 PMThe event, for those unaware, culminated in an 'epic rendition of America's story,' as told from the moon's perspective (portrayed by Beck himself). According to Beck, all of human history is just cycle-upon-cycle of Satan trying to wipe out God's chosen people in order to ultimately destroy God. I don't know about you, but I must have dozed off in my high school history class when this chapter was being taught.

As Media Matters points out, Beck's events, depending on your perspective, are 'either gatherings of epic historical significance or yearly reminders of Beck's inflated sense of self-importance.'

Rand Paul Links Gay Marriage To Polygamy, 'Non-Human' Marriage, Backtracks: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 5.44.14 PM

During a radio interview with Senator Rand Paul on Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed that he was "very concerned" that the DOMA and Prop 8 rulings may one day lead to legalized polygamy for the country. Paul, on the other hand, had more pressing worries on his mind because "if we have no laws on this, people take it to one extension further - does it have to be humans?"

Shortly after the interview, however, Paul appeared on Fox News and attempted to distanced himself from the 'flak,' saying that he doesn't really believe gay marriage will lead to legalized polygamy or non-human marriage. Mediate reports:

"I think my point that I was trying to make is that government has been involved in marriage for a while and it's been at the state level," Paul said. "I think if we leave it at the state level, there will be room to disagree." He clarified, "I don't think it will be with multiple humans and I think it will be human and human."

"I don't think we're going on towards polygamy or things beyond that," Paul continued, "but I do think that our country is divided on the issue and that in some ways, the Supreme Court decision is probably going to allow us to agree to disagree. He predicted that while some states like New York may move forward with gay marriage in the short term, others in the south will not for the "foreseeable future." 

Paul's congressional office also tried to downplay the comments, saying they were only 'sarcasm':

"Sarcasm sometimes doesn't translate adequately from radio conversation," his communications director Moira Bagley said. "Sen. Paul did not suggest that striking down DOMA could lead to unusual marriage arrangements. What he was discussing was that having the state recognize marriage without definition could lead to marriages with no basis in reality."

See? He was just misunderstood. Glad everything is cleared up now.
