WASHINGTON – With his trademark blackboard in the background, Glenn Beck’s bold lessons about the Founding Fathers, America’s Christian heritage and stealth attempts by communists – even within the current administration – to undermine liberty leave many conservatives rapt and cheering for more.
But even as they admire how passionately he’s enlightened Americans about U.S. history and its endurance through threats to its constitutional sovereignty, two authors revered by the right say Beck needs a lesson in how his latest stance actually is aiding and abetting the subversive roots he labors intensely to expose.
By becoming the latest conservative to capitulate to same-sex “marriage,” Glenn Beck is knuckling under to a movement with Marxist roots that’s intent on sabotaging traditional morality and religion, Joseph Farah and David Kupelian warn.
During a recent exchange with fellow Fox News host Bill O’Reilly about the homosexual California judge who overturned an overwhelmingly voter-approved ban on same-sex “marriage,” O’Reilly asked Beck if legalized same-sex “marriage” would “harm the country.” Countering his previously stated views, Beck answered: “I believe that Thomas Jefferson said: ‘If it neither breaks my leg nor picks my pocket what difference is it to me?'”
That answer showed that Beck apparently “doesn’t care about one of the most blatant and despicable examples of judicial tyranny in the history of our country,” “said Farah, founder and CEO of WorldNetDaily.com and author of top-selling “The Tea Party Manifesto.”
Even as voters in state after state – now up to 30 – approve bans on same-sex “marriage,” conservative commentators increasingly are cowing in the face of the homosexual agenda, says Kupelian, managing editor of WND and best-selling author of “The Marketing of Evil” and its just-released sequel, “How Evil Works.” He cites not only the strike-down of Prop 8, but the light resistance to the confirmation of Elena Kagan (which CBS first reportedly described as a lesbian) and the likelihood of Congress overturning “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
“Most people in today’s America, including conservatives, are afraid of ‘the gay issue,'” Kupelian says, citing Ann Coulter’s scheduled keynote speech for GOProud’s September HOMOCON event and the “gay conservative” group’s earlier sponsorship of the Conservative Political Action Conference. “Although most know deep down there’s something wrong with homosexuality, they don’t want to be called ‘intolerant,’ ‘bigoted,’ ‘hateful’ or ‘homophobic.'”
Kupelian outlines the unforeseen and far-reaching consequences of legalizing same-sex marriage, including:
- schools required to teach that homosexuality is normal and acceptable;
- the criminalization of traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs regarding homosexuality as pastors and rabbis fear preaching their faith’s core moral values;
- the inevitable legalization of polygamy and other new and bizarre forms of “marriage”
“For Muslims living in the U.S., for whom polygamy is allowed under the Quran (up to four wives), we will see large numbers of polygamous marriages within the United States of America,” said Kupelian, “just as there are in France today – where polygamy is still illegal! (The French so fear their Muslim subculture, they don’t enforce the law. In fact, French taxpayers pay for free housing for many polygamous Muslims, subsidizing special multi-room apartment units to accommodate the various wives and their children.)”
In fact, says Farah, when conservatives staunchly advocate “the superiority of the free market” while going wobbly on social issues like same-sex “marriage,” they fail to see the contradictions or the consequences. Particularly, says Farah, the economic ones.
“(M)aterialists like Beck don’t understand how upsetting God’s order can have far-reaching effects much more devastating even than a tax increase,” said Farah. “I would suggest that many of the dire economic problems we face today are a direct result not of government fiscal policies but of government social engineering.”
Farah argues such in “The Tea Party Manifesto,” warning about individuals and entities eager to rally the tea party movement around economic issues exclusively. When conservative leaders like Beck shrug off the ramifications of same-sex “marriage,” they unwittingly reject traditional marriage’s biblical ordination and its history as the bedrock protector of women, children and a free, self-governing society, said Farah.
“That is … the perfect illustration of what’s wrong with the materialist worldview – whether it is held by a raving Marxist or a conservative entertainer,” he adds.
Writes Kupelian: “The well-documented leftist infiltration and subversion of virtually all of America’s institutions during the last two to three generations has included, front and center, the sabotage of traditional morality and religion. After all, from the Marxist perspective, if you’re serious about transforming America – from a land of limited government and individual liberty rooted in a transcendent, faith-based moral code to a population of compliant, needy people dependent on a god-like government – you simply must separate the population from Judeo-Christian values and morality.”
“Glenn,” he adds, directly addressing the popular Fox host, “the three founders you picture daily on your Fox TV show under the heading Faith. Hope. Charity – namely Sam Adams, George Washington and Ben Franklin – would have been horrified, appalled and aghast at the mere thought of men marrying men and women marrying women.”
