Glenn Beck interviewed the woman who destroyed that Satanist display at the Florida state capitol in Tallahassee and praised her to high heaven, saying he wishes he would have the “courage” she showed in committing vandalism and violating the law in the name of God.
When Beck asked Hemeryck how it felt to now be considered a religious extremist facing possible legal consequences, she replied that she feels that she is in good company.
“The Bible is full of saints and prophets who spent time in prison for their faith,” she said, “and if that’s the way it is going to go for me, then I am proud to be in that company.”
At the end of the call, Beck wished Hemeryck luck and declared that he hoped that he would have the courage to do the same thing that she did.
“I don’t know what decision I would have made in your situation,” Beck said. “I guess I would hope that I would do the same thing that you did. I guess. I’m not sure. I’m not sure. But I’m glad at least somebody is standing up and saying ‘no.'”
Anyone surprised? I’m not. Because as always, when a conservative Christian talks about religious freedom, they mean Christian privilege.
