The Religious Right Has ‘Lost The War’ Says Glenn Beck (Video)

Former Fox News host Glenn Beck has created a very lucrative new home at his “The Blaze” online network. Yesterday, speaking about a conversation he had with his daughter (and bragging that he didn’t have to pay a dime for her education because she got scholarships) Beck told megachurch pastor Mark Driscoll that the religious right has “lost the war.”

Driscoll and Beck agreed that the number one problem Americans have with organized Christianity is its own “intolerance” on issues like same-sex marriage and abortion. Beck admitted that his own daughter thought he was intolerant until recently.

To prove he is not intolerant, Beck said he has gay friends and employees and doesn’t care “what you do” —  as if being gay is an activity — instead of saying “who you are.”

Beck said that exhibiting tolerance is the “opportunity” Christians now have to gain more followers.

But will they?

The loudest voices among the Christian community are anti-gay hate groups, and organizations including the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) and the Catholic League — hardly paragons of tolerance, or virtue.

They lost this war, a long, long time ago.

Let them say all they have to say …it's easier to spot the bigots that way.

The reason they lost the war was because it was never theirs to fight in the first place. It never even existed. They've appointed themselves as God's mediators on Earth, something which no scripture has ever called for. It is an act of arrogance and gross misinterpretation of their own holy scripture. Jesus spent his time with the differently-abled, prostitutes, bums and lord knew who else without anger or judgement. As I recall from my early days, the only people he ever well and truly threw a tantrum with were a select group of bankers, traders and church officials who abused the people and 'his father's house'. So…pretty much people like them. Christianity at its core was never the problem…it's these idiots so full of judgement and scorn down through the ages that use it like a blunt instrument. So, yeah, they lost a war they weren't ever meant to fight.
