Beck on God, Blood & Goldline

I'm particularly interested in this, starting just before minute 3 and to the end.

Is this common for him, to use politics (incl. MLK text), religion, and fear to sell products? ie. If God isn't put at the centre of the US, it will become awash in blood. And if you believe in God, consider buying gold from Goldline?

I don't know...I've tried to watch the man, honestly I have...but one of us is deficient in brains/logic/ethics and I'd hate for it to be him, so I don't put myself in a spot where I can find out for sure...how's that? ;)

He started in heavily with the God thing, over the last year or so. He frequently says that God speaks directly to him. I think he

(it says whatever money if left after all of his expenses and the expenses of putting on this rally, will go to the promised charity. Wonder how much that will be? )

It will be a lot! He will generate a boatload of money for this cause.....money that they didn't previously have.

Why do you have such a problem with that?

Would you feel better if he just canceled the rally and then that charity will get nothing? Never mind, I am sure I already know the answer to that question.

Last I checked, Rev. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are millionaires too. I wonder why you are not upset that they live such a lavish lifestyle as well.

I read about that rally. He's supposedly got 300,000 people attending. If that is true, there should be a significant amount of money brought in. We'll see how honorable the rally is based upon the signs carried by the attendees.

Seeing as signs are not allowed at this rally, it should be very honorable.

But you never know, there could be some Glen Beck hater come in and have a really ugly sign with news cameras following his every move....that way the media can paint the ENTIRE crowd as racist haters. That would be par for the course.

Wow, 300,000. Where did you read that? That seems REALLY high, to me.


As for judging the honor of the spirit of the rally by signs that are carried, I dont think that you can make that correlation. Every group and movement will have some loons associate themselves with it. I hope none are there, but chances are they will. His site is requesting no signage. I dont put some rather nasty things past people, though. I would say that there have been examples of "plants" from the left carrying off color or offensive signs to right wing gatherings...and yes, I realize that the right fringe might do it to....just sayin'.....

I was thinking that the title of the rally was supposed to include the word "honor," but we would be seeing tea party-like Obama=Hitler signs. We'll see, we'll see....

Is this the same rally that is suppose to be held at the same place MLK gave his speech and on the same date?

Can't stand to even listen to GB. He would fit in with the likes of a few Evangelist I know.

So is this the anti-MLK rally?
