For some bizarre reason, Glenn Beck is rather upset over Wolf Blitzer’s awkward question to an atheist victim of the Oklahoma tornado about thanking God. On his Wednesday show, he launched into this really weird tirade about the “forces of spiritual darkness” who were supposedly behind the whole thing:
During Wednesday’s radio show, Beck asserted that Blitzer’s question was “peculiar in the way that it was stated.”
“I think he was fed some information about the guest he had on beforehand — that’s what producers do — given some questions that he should ask, etc., etc.,” Beck explained. “Some producer, who is sympathetic to the atheist plight or just doesn’t like Christians or whatever it is, thought it was important to point out that, in the middle of the heartland in American where most people are God fearing, there are atheists there too.”“It’s important because it informs others what they are being taught about atheists from atheism and the bully pulpit and other sources of bias that is not a correct reflection of reality in plain view,” he continued. “We are not fighting against flesh and bone, we are fighting the forces of spiritual darkness. And it doesn’t matter what people’s intent are, but I will tell you that, that was there for a reason.”
I blame the forces of intellectual darkness in Beck’s head.
