Yesterday, we posted a clip of Glenn Beck and right-wing activist Samuel Rodriguez warning that America was unknowingly engaging in Baal worship, which was picked up the the Drudge Report.
On his radio show today, Beck voiced his displeasure with Drudge for this supposed display of “anti-Christian bigotry” and defended his claim by pointing to the fact that a reproduction of an arch from the 2,000-year-old Temple of Baal in Syria, which is under threat from ISIS, will be on display in Times Square for World Heritage Week.
Citing a column from the Charisma magazine website which claimed that it is no coincidence that the arch will go up “exactly 13 days before Baal’s biggest day of the year,” Beck grew increasingly irate that he was being mocked for pointing out the obvious.
“Why would you put it up on the high holy day of Satan?” Beck asked. “Good God Almighty, what are we doing? It’s really creepy. And that’s what Drudge is making fun of me on. I mean, if you want to pay attention at all, what are you doing? I mean, we are slapping God in the face over and over and over again and our press is making fun of [me].”
“This country was established through the might and the power of the Almighty God,” he continued, growing more and more upset, “and I’m sorry if that’s politically incorrect but read our own documents! Read the words of our founders. They were lead here by God, they established this country by God, our founding documents are all about God! Our rights do not belong to us; we borrow them, He gives them to us to protect. And what are we doing? In our darkest hour, we are erecting in Times Square, America’s crossroads, we are erecting the Temple of Baal on Satan’s high holy days and nobody seems to care and the press is silent and that’s something that conservative organizations care to mock me about! We are toast.”
