That Explains It: Glenn Beck Explains the Timing of Justice Scalia’s Death

From CNN:

(CNN)Glenn Beck believes that God brought about the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia in order to encourage Americans to vote for Ted Cruz.

On Tuesday, the conservative radio host and Cruz supporter assumed the voice of God to explain to listenershow Scalia’s death was a divine wake up call for conservatives.

“I couldn’t help, but wonder, why? Why now? Why did you have to take Antonin now?” Beck’s co-host Pat Gray asked on the broadcast.

Beck, calling into the show from outside a church in Boston, said: “You know, I was listening to you guys, and I just want to say, Pat, I think I have an answer for you on that.”

Beck then took on the voice of the Lord: “I just woke the American people up. I took them out of the game show moment and woke enough of them up to say, ‘Look how close your liberty is to being lost,'” he said.

“The Constitution is hanging by a thread. That thread has just been cut. And the only way that we survive now is if we have a true constitutionalist (as president),” Beck said.
