Glenn Beck began his television program last night with an opening monologue about yesterday’s oral argument at the Supreme Court over the contraception mandate, declaring that the government has no right to tell someone like him how he must run his company because his entire network is an exercise of his religion.
After explaining that there is a difference between “freedom of worship” and “freedom of religion,” Beck proclaimed that his The Blaze network is “fundamentally about religion” because he is exercising his religious freedom through operating his network.
“I started a business called The Blaze,” Beck explained. “Why is it called The Blaze? Because of the fire of God. That’s why. It’s The Blaze, the fire of God will purify everything. It is fundamentally about religion, for me … I am exercising my right to practice my religion in here!”
