    I think she is better looking than Palin or most other women politicians. You did not exactly pick her best picture either.

    I don't think neither her not Palin are very good looking.

    Though the sexiest Aussie politician is definitely Joe Hockey.

    Glenn Beck is pretty much a psycho, and so are most of the people who take him seriously. I had a strange feeling that this whole crisis in the middle east combined with the earthquakes, tsunamis, and the nuclear meltdown issue would spur this kind of apocalyptic fanaticism. Honestly, it kinda makes me laugh.

    I am a Christian. In some respects, I'd even say a devout Christian. In other words, I've thought about it a lot, gone through various "phases" of belief/disbelief/agnostic belief, and I've come to my conclusions by contemplation and consideration. I believe.

    But it's the Glen Beck types that make it difficult for me to attend church on a regular basis. I should ignore them, but it's hard.

    The average congregation is full of some of the most wonderful, giving, and genuinely good people you'll ever meet. There's certainly an aura to these folks that I do believe God has a hand in.

    However, the church is also a magnet for extremely addictive personalities, as well as the bipolar crowd. For many, they simply trade their addiction for alcohol, drugs, gambling, or porn for another more "accepted" addiction, which is the church. And instead of letting it be a spiritual rudder for their daily lives, it becomes all-Christian-all-the-time. It becomes an incessant need to pick every facet of everything to pieces, railing against anything with even a hint of anti-Christian meaning.

    And what does that do? It runs people off that are looking at their faith and wanting to find a spiritual meaning to their life through Christ. Then, the soulless media feeds that perception, constantly, by letting these types represent Christianity altogether. In fact, Christian churches do more good and provide more charity than any organization in the world.....by a mile.

    When you meet a truly grounded devout Christian, they have a positive effect on you. They don't preach to you, they don't even bring it up unless you ask. They carry themselves and live their lives in a way that draws you to them and makes you want to emulate them in ways that may or may not have anything to do with their faith. Then, when you learn how important their faith is to them, you naturally want to learn more about it.

    Glen Beck is the other type. He's a recovering alcholic and drug addict with a massive propensity for the dramatic. He gets a wild stare in his eye, which is a product of his emotional instability. Now, a lot of what he says is true, but he just can't settle for the truth, he has to take it to absurd levels too often. That's what people like him do.

    He's not a bad person. He's just too much to take in large doses.

    Every time I see people write about this man, I think of Rep. Waters, Harry Ried, Matthews, Bill Maher........
    Glenn Beck, tells you like he sees it. If you don't like his show, then shut it off, but there are many things that those of faith, understand, in his words. We don't take it verbatim. We do our research. As for the happenings in Japan, or anywhere else in the ball we live on, I do believe that the physics in which this earth moves plays a great deal into the catastrophic happenings. As for the condition of a mans heart, after reading many posts, I can see we're in trouble there, too.

    I don't agree with absolutely everything you said (I think Glenn is in it for the money more so than insecurity) but kudos on a thoughtful and honest post.

    Thanks. I don't fault Beck, or any Christian, for wanting to make money as long as their belief is real. His is real, it's just so incredibly over-the-top that I can't take it.

    He's usually on the right track, but then he takes it to unprovable levels that lose credibility. He has a knack for generating interesting discussion in his "classroom" style, but he's the classic conspiracy theorist that can't help himself. Instead of stating these scenarios as possibilities, which they are, he positions them as fact on too little proof. (Very global warming in that regard.)

    Faith is a wonderful thing, but personally, I don't think God intends for us to know much beyond it. If you think about it, why would He? It would be like asking a 6-year-old about his retirement plans. That's my sermon for the day, if you'll excuse it.

    All successful intelligent people, what do they have to do with GB?

    Glenn Beck, tells you like he sees it.
    But mentally unstable people see things that aren't there.


    If you don't like his show, then shut it off,
    If you you like his show, shut it off and see a doctor.


    We don't take it verbatim. We do our research.
    By 'research' do you mean read his books? Or watch Sean Hannity?
