Glenn Beck Check, Part IX: Beck Quotes the Book of Mormon (and Makes a Fool of Himself in the Process)

A few weeks ago, whack-job extraordinaire Glenn Beck went on the air and said the following:


I LOVE it when Glenn Beck pretends to play the role of preacher man. He comes off looking like such an ass!

Of course, this isn't a new act for Crazy Man Beck.  He has made a career (quite a lucrative career actually) of pretending to be a politician, historian, theologian, economist, etc.  But in the end, he's a shameless fraud who does nothing more than prey upon the fear of his audience. And make no mistake; through the mechanisms of fear, ignorance and hate, Glenn Beck has profited to the extreme.

But quoting from the Book of Mormon is a new all-time low.  It's low because Beck is twisting the words of his (and my) faith to make a lame political point.  But, in true Beckonian fashion, Crazy Man has once again revealed to the world just how big of an idiot and fraud he truly is.

The following is taken from the Book of Mormon (yes, the same BoM that Beck tried to use as a political tool):
Behold, hath the Lord commanded any that they should not partake of his goodness? Behold I say unto you, Nay; but all men are privileged the one like unto the other, and none are forbidden. He commandeth that there shall be no priestcrafts; for, behold, priestcrafts are that men preach and set themselves up for a light unto the world, that they may get gain and praise of the world; but they seek not the welfare of Zion. Behold, the Lord hath forbidden this thing; wherefore, the Lord God hath given a commandment that all men should have charity, which charity is clove. And except they should have charity they were nothing. Wherefore, if they should have charity they would not suffer the laborer in Zion to perish (2 Nephi 26:29).
So, the next time you want to wield religion as a political sword, Mr. Beck, try to first UNDERSTAND the message of that book!
