... And here is another example of Glenn Beck's demonizing rhetoric (why is this guy still allowed on air?)...
To put it bluntly, Glenn Beck's demonizing rhetoric makes it less safe for normal citizens. On the one hand, there's free speech. On the other hand, he is in a country that now has a large number of people that are so dumb that they lack any kind of critical thinking skills. And since beliefs are often self-fulfilling... this is where this sort of rhetoric is leading us...
Finally, if you understand the roots of Christian Apocalyptic rhetoric... then Glenn Back makes perfect sense (and is even more disturbing!)...
What's Glenn Beck up to now? Glenn Beck has gone from painting EVERYONE as evil to talking about Mormonism! Turns out he's not Christian (I wasn't expecting that).
From The BBC [ http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/mormon/organisation/priesthood.shtml ]...
The Melchizedek Priesthood (Mormonism)
Bishops and Stake Presidents have the authority to confer the Melchizedek Priesthood by the laying on of hands, but they can only dothis by the common consent of the holders of the Priesthood in thecommunity.
An individual ordained to the Melchizedek Priesthoodmakes a contract (covenant) with God to honour and learn the priesthood duties, to obey God's commandments, to live by God's counsel, and tolive an upright and virtuous life.
God, in return, promisesthat if the person keeps their side of the covenant he will receiveeternal life, and be exalted to inherit all that God the Father has an dwill participate with God and Christ in their continual work.
Once they have received the Melchizedek Priesthood, men are ordained toan office in the priesthood which carries specific responsibilities. Thefirst office is Elder.
Other offices include:
Apostle [!!!!!!!!!!! Is that why Glenn Beck acts like he's a god?]
