Stoning Gays: Glenn Beck claims Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg can’t be critical of hypocritical Christians like Donald Trump because Buttigieg’s lifestyle is “antithetical to what is found in the Bible.”
Discussing Buttigieg’s Christianity on his radio program earlier this week, Beck argued that Buttigieg could not make credible arguments against Trump’s supposed Christianity because the Bible calls for the “stoning of homosexuals.”
Speaking on the February 20 edition of BlazeTV’s The Glenn Beck Radio Program, Beck said:
A lot of people would find [Pete Buttigieg’s] lifestyle antithetical to what is found in the Bible. I mean, you just — Pete, you can’t make this claim. “You know, I just don’t know how you would vote for him (Trump) because the way he lives his life, I mean, you know, you can’t find that in the Bible.” Well, you also can’t find anything but stoning of homosexuality and stoning of homosexuals in the Bible too. Old-timey, sure. Bad, yes. But it’s not an endorsement. Nowhere in the Bible is there an endorsement of that. I mean, at best you can say, well, Jesus never talked about it. Well Jesus never talked about tweeting either.
You can’t pick and choose if you’re going to use the Bible. You can’t say, “Well I’m a Bible-believing person.” That’s like Donald Trump. It drove me nuts when he was like, “Yeah, you know, I love the 2 Corinthians.” Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop talking about it. OK? But if you just want to say, “Look, I, mean, you know, I try to live my life based on, you know, basic principles, many of them were found in the Bible, and I don’t know how to square his behavior.” That’s totally fine. But he gets into, “We’re in Bible country now. We’re in Bible territory.” No, you shouldn’t go there. You shouldn’t go there.
For the record, Beck is a dangerous idiot who has a well documented history of trying to demonize the LGBT community. Previously the conservative pundit argued that transgender friendly bathrooms were part of a plot to normalize pedophilia.
In addition to trying to demonize LGBT people, in 2016 Beck made the ridiculous claim that God had to kill Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to promote the presidential candidacy of Ted Cruz.
In addition to bizarre political commentary, Beck has also made ridiculous “medical claims,” once arguing that a woman’s menstrual period is a “God given sadness.”
Bottom line: Noting that the Bible calls for the “stoning of homosexuals,” Glenn Beck argues that Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg can’t be critical of hypocritical Christians like Donald Trump because Buttigieg’s lifestyle is “antithetical to what is found in the Bible.”
