    Why?

    I watched some of it, I thought it was nothing outrageous, nothing truly offensive towards others....not what I had expected at all....

    granted, I only got about 15 minutes of it, before I changed channels, but it seemed pretty ho hum, to me...?

    I think he is talking about the crap he says on his radio and tv show. ;)
    And I doubt Jesus would approve of that.

    I really feel for those conservatives who travelled all that way to rally against the socialist agenda of the current administration and to complain that Obama is a foreign-born muslim, only to find out that they were at a crowded outdoor church service.

    Ní dhéanfaidh ach Dia breithiúnas orm (Only God shall Judge me) seems the appropriate response.

    Which is why I didn't say Jesus would FOR SURE not approve. ;)

    But I doubt Jesus likes people who speak about hating others so much.

    This reminds me of tourettes syndrome.... (sorry, LuLu).... I keep seeing people claim that Beck is spreading hate.... I keep digging, watching clips of his show etc.... I can find no evidence of 'hate'. In fact, it appears to me that, while I don't necessarily agree with the guy, he's said nothing remotely like 'hate'.

    However, I have seen, from left leaning media, all kinds of unfounded allegations about 'bigots' and 'racists'. I could easily define that as 'hate' speech.

    In fact, it seems to me that a whole bunch of people are just running around throwing baseless accusations at anyone who disagrees with them.
