Beck apparently only takes serious scholarly advice, like from David Barton (insert heavy eye roll here)
Right-wing nutjob Glenn Beck is doubling down on his proclamations that Republican candidate Ted Cruz has been “anointed by God” to run for president and save the Constitution from the dark forces at work in these perilous times.
On Beck’s radio program on Friday, he devoted an entire segment to responding to a Breitbart article that basically pointed out the fact that Beck’s ramblings are those of a man who is 100 percent bat-shit crazy after he told Mormons that they must rise up to save the world from the Christian southerners who “are not listening to their God.”
Beck was particularly agitated by a comment from Baylor professor Dr. Thomas Kidd, who said that although “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.”
Transcript of segment:
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 important enough for Him to raise someone up, at this critical juncture?
