Glenn Beck: Obama ‘Trying to Kill Christian Thought’

Glenn Beck went after Obama on Monday, accusing the President of lying about what his meeting with Pope Francis was about and then asserted that Obama is “trying to kill Christian thought.” Whatever that means.

Beck said the foundation of socialism, giving to those in need, is also at the heart of the Judeo-Christian principle. But, Beck says, it never works out because any time a religious group has tried to implement socialism it has ended in “starvation and disaster.” He then noted that when governments implement socialism, it “ends with millions of citizens being murdered.”

Then, Beck, in his infinite wisdom, turned the whole statement around, saying Christianity is the only thing that can prevent a government from “murdering its citizens by the tens of thousands” and accused the Obama Administation of “trying to kill Christian thought.”

“They’re trying to kill the one thing,” Beck added, “that stops people from saying ‘let’s kill those people and take their stuff, let’s just keep killing people until it does work,’ this administration is trying to kill that.”

According to Obama, he met with Pope Francis to discuss international conflicts, religious freedom, and human rights. “I was grateful to have the opportunity to speak with him about the responsibilities that we all share to care for the least of these, the poor, the excluded,” Obama said. “And I was extremely moved by his insights about the importance of us all having a moral perspective on world problems and not simply thinking in terms of our own narrow self-interests.”

The Vatican merely released a statement, saying “Views were exchanged on some current international themes and it was hoped that, in areas of conflict, there would be respect for humanitarian and international law and a negotiated solution between the parties involved.”

    Beck is a deranged ahole that has done more to ‘destroy’ Christianity in this country than anything the President could have said or not said to the Pope. I mean…HONEST TO GOD. Would you want YOUR Christianity to look like this?

    As a socialist, I have to correct Mr. Beck. The foundation of socialism is not giving to those in need, although that may well be the foundation of Christianity. The foundation of socialism is workers having the wages they fairly earn. It is an issue of justice, not charity.
    As far as murdering millions, I can’t find a single example of such a horrible misdeed by any of the governments ever headed by a member party of the Socialist International.

    As a practicing Roman Catholic, all I have to say here is “Keep up the excellent work Mr. President.” I’m not going to even address the very obvious about Beck.
