Glenn Beck dedicated an entire segment of his radio program today to responding to a Breitbart article criticizing him for telling Mormons while campaigning for Ted Cruz in Utah recently that they must rise up and save this nation because evangelical Christians in the South “are not listening to their God.”
Beck took issue with a comment from Baylor professor Thomas Kidd, who said that while “there are many reasons why devout Christians should hesitate to vote for Donald Trump … God has not revealed Ted Cruz as the divinely anointed alternative.”
God has, in fact, revealed Cruz to be His divinely anointed choice, Beck insisted.
“To you, Dr. Kidd. To you,” Beck responded. “To you God hasn’t revealed Cruz as divinely anointed. I understand that. And I respect your opinion on it. But here’s mine: I have seen this man’s life. I have watched this man. I have prayed about this man. I have prayed about it by myself, out loud, in quiet, with my family, with my staff, and I happen to believe that Ted Cruz actually was anointed for this time. Would there not be someone that was in the pool that might have the right qualifications for God? Is He that disinterested in all of us? Or is it perhaps possible that just like in the Bible, people were raised from birth for a specific time? Are we that inconsequential, Dr. Kidd? Are we really not that important enough for Him to raise someone up, at this critical juncture?”
