    Being a Christian myself, I don't buy it though. One shouldn't cause strive, but seek peace, shouldn't say "while I have mine, I don't care if they have theirs".
    Just as absurd as it is for a Rev Wright to instill hatred/unrest/dissatisfaction into the hearts of his congregation, Beck shouldn't be mentioned as anything close to a Christian.
    The main reason Beck should not be mentioned as a Christian is that he is Mormon.

    Sadly we don't all think like that. The world would be a much better place, if we wouldn't give in to preconceived notions and bias.
    I would go as far as to say that they were insulting SheWolf. She should have responded "yeah, and everyone, in every other country, told me you guys were all stereotyping morons. Strange world."

    The one line picked out of what was probably a minutes long rant on the subject is very damning but I would have to hear the whole thing so it was in context before I came down real hard on Beck. If what he said has been posted or linked to in it's entirety I apologize but this is a really long thread and I have a really short morning.

    Or as another reason.

    Seriously...... I have no words for how bad this utter stupidity moronic comment is....I surely hope everyone on the US right distances themselves from this moron and his beliefs.... this comment is not only inaccurate, but hurtful and disrespectful to the dead and their families.

    Shame on you Glenn Beck.
    I've felt that same way about the 'youth labor party' - not just this one, but others as well.

    I USE to find it disturbing - but not anymore. I now wish, when I was a teen, I cared more about politics and was more aware and involved. In our country we have an oppsite issue: teens don't give a **** on average - and suddenly when they're old enough to vote they don't know a damn thing. And that brainless zombieism to the voter box continues for years.

    The idea of young people becoming politically involved is foreign in the US - usually it's just the opposite.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    One American doesn't represent us all, just like Beck doesn't represent all tea partiers, or all cons, or dare I say Libertarians, however he may associate himself.
    Norway does what is right for Norway, as do all European nations, as does America. Its this live and let live most can't make sense of.
    What works for some doesn't work for others. How can one European nation, say Norway (to stick with the topic) compare itself to the U.S? How can one American seek to represent all Americans?
    We are as different as Turkey is from Wales. Just compare CA and KY. See the difference?
    Having traveled across Europe, I noticed that the French seem to think of themselves as superior to the Brits, the Germans think they are better than the Italians, etc.
    So why would they think that one American, one of our posters, or a POTUS, represents all Americans without being thought of as narrow minded ?

    That's a good point. I think it's good for kids to get exposed to a lot of different beliefs. When I was growing up, my parents exposed me to a lot of different religious beliefs. My dad was born in Turkey and he is Muslim, but the stereotype is they aren't strict and he never was. My dad drinks beer sometimes and he hasn't celebrated Ramadan for a while, but he won't eat pork. My mom's family didn't really have a family religion, but my great grandpa and grandpa were Freemasons on her side. My family would go to all sorts of religious events and churches together, and they explained to me the three different major religions when I was a kid and told me all the differences. I was always happy that I was exposed to a lot and I kind of thought I was special.

    I once met a girl and her family did the same raising her. They also took her to Disney World on gay day when she was a teen, just so she could see how different people are. She was also happy her parents raised her around diverse beliefs.

    Stop it! Stop it! You're acknowledging that diversity is not only acceptable but amazing, and that's not politically correct! HUAC will return from the dead just to put you on trial!

    Actually being serious, I totally agree. My parents did a similar thing- I went to a UCC church for the first 10 years of my life which was an experience in itself. It's a serious problem when teenagers never are educated and don't have any kind of perspective. Often when they vote it's just to vote either with, or against, their parents, which is no help at all.

    Yes, people statistically vote how their parents vote. My nephew wanted to be lawyer and knew that before he graduated high school. If he wanted to go to political camps to gain some kind of experience, knowledge, and meet people, I wouldn't find that creepy at all...

    But I can't say how happy I was growing up how I did... I feel that I knew a lot more about the world, the united states, and foreign countries than most kids my age. I remember going on vacation and bringing a friend, and she said it was the first time she left the state she was born in and I was so shocked by that. Later on, I found out that that wasn't very rare and then I realized my parents raised me a little differently.
