Glenn Beck Goes On Bizarre Rant: Pray For Me, ‘I’m Entering Now The Time Of My Calling’ (Video)


glenn-beck-time-callingWhen it comes to Glenn Beck, I’m still not sure if he actually believes the nonsense he says, or if he’s just a really good actor playing a character who makes him a whole lot of money.

And by a whole lot of money, I mean a whole lot of money. His net worth is estimated to be around $250 million.

What can I say, pushing irrational fear, paranoia, hate and various other aspects of right-wing propaganda is very profitable. And thankfully for Beck, the audience to whom he panders isn’t exactly the most rational group of people either. These are people who take religious and political guidance from a man with absolutely no background to be giving either.

But even by Beck’s standards, a recent rant he went on is absolutely bizarre. For close to 90 seconds he babbled on about how he needs people to pray for him because he’s “entering the time” of his calling.

“I would beg for your prayers,” Beck said. “I’m entering now the time of my calling, what I have to do as a man. I don’t know what to do, I just know it’s coming and I beg you for your prayers. I beg you for your prayers because I will pray for you and you please pray for me, because this is the time. This comes every 70 years, there is a time when giants are made. And I don’t know if they’ll ever remember any of our names. What I know is at some point, I am going to be standing in front of God himself and I demand of myself that he says ‘job well done.'”

Apparently he thinks he’s some kind of “chosen one” when it comes to Christianity and God.

Yes, because nothing says “I’m a person with a devout belief in the values of Christianity” quite like hoarding $250 million while children all over the world die from hunger. As if “greed” isn’t clearly defined as one of the seven deadly sins. And no matter which way you try to slice it, someone doesn’t build a net worth of nearly a quarter of a billion dollars without greed playing a big part.

But Beck’s incoherence is fitting alongside other conservatives who seem to indicate that some sort of biblical day of reckoning is upon us. Hell, former congresswoman Michele Bachmann recently proclaimed that she’s excited because President Obama is hastening the end of the world.

It’s like I’ve said numerous times before, I simply cannot take these people seriously any longer. These aren’t serious adults out to have meaningful dialogue about issues facing this country – they’re crazy people who believe things like God personally talks to them or that gay marriage becoming legal in the United States is going to bring about the apocalypse… even though same-sex marriage has been legal in Canada since 2007 and the world, by all accounts, still seems to exist.

So, as a Christian, I will pray for Beck. I’m going to pray that he finds his sanity because, at least in my opinion, it’s clear that he’s completely lost it.

    He’s going to run for President. We can all agree that “President Beck” would be ABSOLUTELY catastrophic.
