Glenn Beck on the Tragedy in Japan

If it’s not Pat Robertson it’s Glenn Beck.

His remarks come after a tsunami caused by a magnitude-8.9 earthquake hit the Japanese coastline last Friday, claiming an estimated 10,000 lives. Since the quake occured, several nuclear power plants risk meltdown after receiving damage.

“I’m not saying God is, you know, causing earthquakes – well I’m not not saying that either!” Beck said on television Monday.

“What God does is God’s business, I have no idea. But I’ll tell you this – whether you call it Gaia or whether you call it Jesus, there’s a message being sent.”

Beck needs to read Luke 13:1-5.

There were some present at that very time who told [Jesus] about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”

Why Beck still has a forum to spout his false gospel of hate and divine retribution is beyond me.  I’m with Faith America, lets give up Glenn Beck for Lent.

On a side note, if you are looking for a legitimate place to make a donation to the people of Japan during this horrifying tragedy, please consider the ELCA Disaster Relief.  100% of the money donated will go to helping Japan recover from this earthquake.  The donation site is on the top page of the ELCA’s main page.

One thought on “Glenn Beck on the Tragedy in Japan

  1. It’s disturbing to me how quickly people are to use disasters to support their own selfish agendas. People died, suffering occurred. This, we see time and time again in scripture, breaks the heart of God.

    This world is broken, it has not yet been restored in the New Creation, and until that time the pain will continue. It is only for us to love as Christ loved, judgment is God’s alone.

    I say we give up Glenn Beck for good. Lent is far too short a time for that.
