Glenn Beck is all upset again, this time because an atheist was allowed to give the invocation at a commission meeting in Florida (several members of the commission walked out rather than listen to it). According to Beck, this is “mocking God” and he will destroy us for it.
After warning atheists that they should not be mocking God just based on the fact that they could be wrong about God’s existence, Beck demanded to know “since when do we have to get snarky in our city council meetings at the moment of prayer?”
“We are a nation that will destroy themselves,” he warned. “I promise you, in time we will all regret this. If we turn our back on the giver of all that is good, we will regret it.”
To be fair, it was a really dumb invocation (you can watch it here if you’d like). But seriously, can we stop with the “my big bully friend is going to beat you up if you don’t stop saying things I don’t like” bullshit? It’s really, really stupid.
