Mr. Beck is certainly a showman, and he has a big show planned for July 22, 2014.We Will Not Conform is a live telecast to movie theaters around the country on the evils of common core educational standards. Despite being championed initially by conservatives like Mike Huckabee, Common Core has become associated with nearly everything evil, thanks, more often than not, to Mr. Huckabee's allies in the conservative camp.In this Hannity segment (click for video), Beck describes the upcoming … [Read more...]

Was Glenn Beck Right About Joseph Smith When He Spoke At Liberty University?

LDSGOVFORD

When Glenn Beck spoke at Liberty University in April of this year, many alums and other observers were upset that Beck preached a sermon including Latter Day Saint theological concepts. The school and Beck eventually responded to but did not agree with the concerns. Beck was especially bothered and engaged name-calling to defend himself. In addition to the odd pairing of LDS Beck preaching about his religious calling at a Baptist university, Beck's history caught my eye. In prior posts, I … [Read more...]

More Fractured History Lessons in Glenn Beck’s Sermon to Liberty University: The Bible, Cake and Witches

In two prior posts (here and here), I addressed Glenn Beck's faulty reference to the purple triangle worn by Jehovah's Witnesses while imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps during WWII.  Beck said Bible scholars were made to wear the triangle without telling the audience that Jehovah's Witnesses were known as Bible students in Germany at the time. Very few  people (some say less than one percent) from other religions wore the purple triangle.After he held up the purple triangle, Beck then h … [Read more...]

Mormons and the Nazis: More about Glenn Beck’s Purple Triangle Story at Liberty University

beckpurpletriangle

Last week I wrote about Glenn Beck's recent sermon at Liberty University. In that post, I pointed out that Beck referred to the colored cloth triangles that the Nazis made concentration camp inmates wear to identify the reason for imprisonment. The last triangle he displayed to his audience was a purple triangle (Watch the entire video here, for the purple triangle segment start at 10 minutes into the video).Here is what Beck said about the prisoners wearing the purple triangles: what … [Read more...]

Glenn Beck’s Historical Problems at Liberty University: The Purple Triangle and the Jehovah’s Witnesses

jehwitnessHoss

Leaving aside the wisdom of having a Mormon leader deliver a sermon, Liberty University should apologize for Glenn Beck's questionable history.At about 10 minutes into the video of his sermon at Liberty, Beck went to a table on the stage with various documents. He first picked up a collection of colored triangles used by the Nazi's to identify why prisoners were placed in work and death camps. He then identified several Bibles, saying one of them put an end to the Salem witch trials. He … [Read more...]

Religion News Services Weighs In on Glenn Beck at Liberty University

Liberty University graduate Jonathan Merritt posted an article yesterday titled: "Glenn Beck Preaches Mormon Theology at Liberty University." In the article Merritt provides analysis of Beck's sermon and the Latter Day Saint references in it.While there has been some outrage expressed by Liberty grads on Twitter, the school hasn't responded to these expressions with the vigor it did to concerns the school was partnering with Benny Hinn. Merritt seems largely correct when he wrote: There … [Read more...]
