Glenn Beck is not happy that the Satanic Temple is going to be allowed to put up a holiday display at the Florida state capitol in Tallahassee. He says it can only mean that “destruction is coming our way.” And the Satanists don’t deserve a place at the table like Christianity does.
“There’s nothing in the Constitution that says every religion is equal,” he said. “There just isn’t.”
“I have news for ya,” Beck chimed in, “destruction is coming our way.”
Gray then returned to his cogent legal argument as to why other religions are not entitled to equal treatment under the law by explaining that “when Satanists come to you and say ‘well, we want equal time,’ you tell them ‘tough, you’re not getting it!'”
And why don’t Satanists deserve equal time, according to Gray?
“Because you don’t deserve it” … unlike Christianity.
“Christianity has earned the right,” Beck added, “not in the Dark Ages, but in this country, they have earned the right to be at the table.”
Really? Let’s tally up the destruction of both people and liberty wrought by Christians in this country and compared it to the Satanists. Did Satanists establish theocracies in the original colonies and imprison or put to death those of different religions? Nope. Did Satanists own slaves and justify it with the Bible, then fight a war that killed hundreds of thousands of people to maintain the “right” to own other people? Nope. Did Satanists fight against women’s suffrage? Nope. Did Satanists demand the authority to put gay people in jail? Nope. Christians did all of those things. Do you really want to make that comparison, Glenn?
