liblady, are you a Christian?
Of course I do. It's called the first amendment.but not the name calling. You have no right to ridicule people for their beliefs
Really? Under which situation can you be held criminally liable for calling somebody a complete idiot?and, depending on the situation, can be held criminally liable for what you say.
I'm not calling you or Beck morons because you believe in a diety. I'm calling Beck a moron for suggesting that earthquakes are a manifestation of your diety when in reality there is a logical explanation behind them and no need for a faith based one.If you don't want to believe in a deity, that's fine with me. While I disagree, I'm not going to call you a **** moron or stupid.
If you believe that an ideology which supports legislation against gay marriage, faith based initiatives and promotes academic ignorance is seeking to educate and 'bestow freedom' you're much worse than Glenn Beck is. Why don't you do us both a favor, I'll prove to you that my opinion on why the earthquake happen is not an opinion but a fact, and you show me that your beliefs about why the earthquake happened are actually supported by any kind of evidence. Deal?But, that's the difference between conservatism and liberalism. Conservatism seeks to bestow freedom while liberalism seeks to force conformity. Conservatism seeks to educate and convince, liberalism (and you) seek to force compliance through ridicule or legislation. We've chosen our sides and I like where I stand.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
EDIT: Nevermind. I found it.
If you don't really know what he was dressed as and you don't really know why or what he was talking about, how did you come to the conclusion to never watch him? You're against people being dramatic or what? You'd rather him just sit and talk like other hosts?

P.S. He wasn't dressed as Moses, but as YODA. LOL!
That post wasn't intended to portray a holier than though sentiment. Rather, I was trying to convey that the proper decorum is more appropriate to the debate.Also, your holier than thou crap (while trying to act modest) is sickening. Your definitions of conservatism and liberalism are laughable. You essentially ridicule liberalism while complaining about others ridiculing beliefs.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
