  • Glenn Beck in general has that effect on me.... Along with Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin, heh.

  • meh. the man thinks his own shadow is a plot on his life. I think the only thing he hasn't tied to some vast conspiracy are sporks, and he's probably working on that next.
    he's an idiot.

  • If you don't listen to his radio show, his words don't make you do anything, especially want to hurt yourself... ;o)

  • Wow, even the article went on to say what he meant. Funny, I don't quite think that knowledge was your intention.
    Anyway, he is right.


    In a brief aside, Beck said that he wasn’t saying Reform Judaism and radical Islam were the same. He went on to note that for Orthodox rabbis faith is primary, before reiterating that Reform rabbis place politics before religion.

  • Unfortunately, grly, his words are repeated through other channels, not just on his show. If only his sick mind could be contained in one place, that would be wonderful!

  • Steph - I grew up in Reform Judaism, and am still quite involved in it; I have known many, many rabbis, none of whom put politics before religion. I would be very interested in hearing about any rabbi you know who puts politics before religion.

    His radio show? This question is about his radio show.  I don't see these words repeated on the local news.  I don't see these words on Headline News, ABC News.....  I don't even see these words repeated on Fox News.....  I see them on the website OP posted...  Maybe you all are relying on the wrong "sources" for information....  Someone CHOSE to make Beck an issue and write an editorial/blog piece on it....    I haven't heard Beck's radio show to know if I agree or disagree with the ed.  But I wouldn't let someone else's opinion be the "say all"....
