Glenn Beck Is Pro Gay Marriage?

Glenn Beck says leave the Gays alone?
Just got this on Youtube. The audio isn't good, but one can understand the argument.



Here's a bit of the transcript (click here for the article on Politics Daily).

BECK: Here's the reason, America. Your country is burning down. I don't think marriage, that the government actually has anything to do with . . .
O'REILLY: But they do have . . .
BECK: That is a religious rite. [Referring to the sacrament of marriage]
O'REILLY: I know, but they do have something to do, because gay marriage is going to be a reality in this country in 10 years.
BECK: Why do they have anything to do with it?
O'REILLY: Because they choose to, and you're not going to stop them, all right?
BECK: Actually, this is where we disagree.
O'REILLY: The Supreme Court may rule against gay marriage. Very possible.
BECK: You're willing to continue to go down the road of just accepting "well that's the way it is."
O'REILLY: I'm not accepting anything. I wrote a book about it. Don't give me this accept. Come on.
BECK: He's so hostile.
O'REILLY: Yes. I have to correct you. You are ignoring the profound change in the American family.
BECK: No, I'm not.
O'REILLY: But you're not covering it.
BECK: Because I think that the thing that needs to be covered -- Bill, I believe in a symphony. If we're all playing clarinets, we ain't going to get very far. A symphony needs to sound. I'm covering what I cover. You cover what you cover. Both of us are saying the same thing. Watch the culture.
O'REILLY: Do you believe -- do you believe that gay marriage is a threat to the country in any way?
BECK: A threat to the country?
O'REILLY: Yes. Is it going to harm?
BECK: No. Are the gay -- will the gays come and get us?
O'REILLY: OK. Is it going to harm the country in any way?
BECK: I believe that Thomas Jefferson said, "If it neither breaks my leg or picks my pocket, what difference is it to me?"

I just want to say that I don't think Glenn Beck is any less of a lunatic. But you have to appreciate his facial gestures and the way he uses them to mock O"Reilly.

  1. I'm from the UK and not too familiar with Beck... but I was under the impression that he was your run-of-the-mill raging-homophobe theist?
