Glenn BeckThe raging paranoid Glenn Beck continues to rage, and to … well … be paranoid. He has decided, in his typical childish and irrational fashion, to dig his heels in on the matter of whether or not Christianity is compatible with “social justice.” As I blogged before, Beck views the term “social justice” through the lens of Cold War era propaganda, connects it with Communism (and Nazism and every other “ism” he happens to personally hate) and thus concludes that no Christian is ever permitted to seek “social justice.”

Yes, folks, on the scale of Christian authorities, Beck places himself even higher up than the Pope, who by his own Church’s admission speaks only for Roman Catholics; Beck, on the other hand, speaks for ALL Christians of ALL denominations, everywhere, including ALL Christians who ever lived, and who ever WILL live. In other words, he places himself on par with Jesus Christ himself, as the final arbiter of all things Christian.

The juvenile Beckie-boy is unmoved by various other Christian authorities who have more or less called him a blithering idiot. He is, in fact, so unmoved by them that he has inexplicably gone on the attack against one of his more outspoken critics, the Rev Jim Wallis, head of the Sojourners Community. Wallis blogged about Beckie-boy’s attack on him (WebCite cached article):

In fact, on Friday, I sent Glenn a letter proposing that the two of us sit down together and have an open and public discussion on what social justice really means and how Christians are called to engage in the struggle for justice. I said, “let’s make this a civil dialogue and not engage in personal attacks on each other — which is never helpful in trying to sort out what is true. So let’s talk about the heart of the matter.”

Well, on today’s Glenn Beck radio show, I got a response that disappointed me. Glenn Beck said:

So Jim, I just wanted to pass this on to you. In my time I will respond — my time, well, kind of like God’s time, might be a day, might be a week to you, I’m not sure. But I’m going to get to it in my time, not your time. So you go ahead and you continue to do your protest thing, and that’s great. I love it. But just know — the hammer is coming, because little do you know, for eight weeks, we’ve been compiling information on you, your cute little organization, and all the other cute little people that are with you. And when the hammer comes, it’s going to be hammering hard and all through the night, over and over …

He went on to say that “It’s weird how people all over the world have been sending me stuff. It’s weird that way, Jimmy.” Why is the idea of a civil dialogue such a threat to Glenn Beck?

That is a very good question, Reverend. The answer, however, is deceptively simple: To a paranoid schizophrenic like Beckie-boy, everything is a threat to him … even things that are not actually threats. He doesn’t understand that the Rev Wallis — and other people who’ve criticized him — are not somehow trying to destroy him, personally, utterly, and even physically. This is why Beckie-boy can’t admit he was wrong about Christianity and that Christians can concern themselves legitimately with “social justice”; for him to admit his critics are right, would grant his critics a “win,” and thus destroy him — in his paranoid eyes. He cannot permit that to happen, so he will never allow it to.

I give the Rev Wallis credit for remaining open to a dialog with Beckie-boy. Unfortunately, no “dialog” is possible with Beck. He is too mentally ill to be able to communicate levelly with anyone or anything.

P.S. I’ll be amused with whatever it is Beckie-boy thinks he’s got on Wallis and his organization. I can’t imagine what sort of dirt he thinks he’s going to reveal.

P.P.S. I know you find it “strange” that people are contacting you, Glennie, and criticizing you for spewing inane bullshit. If you don’t like it, here’s a thought: Stop spewing the inane bullshit, and people won’t “strangely” be getting in touch with you any more! If you need help for that, Beckie-boy, treatments are available.
