Rep. Steve King and Glenn Beck: Voting for health reform on Sunday is 'an affront to God'

March 18, 2010 on the Glenn Beck Radio Show
Partial transcript:
KING: They intend to vote on the Sabbath, during Lent, to take away the liberty that we have right from God. [...]

BECK: You couldn’t have said it better. Here is a group of people that have so perverted our faith and our hope and our charity, that is a — this is an affront to God. And I honestly, I don’t think anybody is like, “yes, and now what we’ll do is we’ll vote on the Sabbath.” But I think it’s absolutely appropriate that these people are trying to put the nail in the coffin on our country on a Sunday — something our founders would have never, ever, ever done. Out of respect for God.

  1. It should of course be noted that Beck has already lost a great deal of support from liberal theologians (including in his own LDS church) after suggesting that Christian 'social justice' was code for Communism. 

    For every Glenn Beck, there are tens of supporters of universal healthcare measures on spiritual grounds, especially in the LDS and Catholic churches. 

  2. Ya, our founders would have waited until Monday to put the nail in the coffin of our country.

  3. jesus would hate the idea of healthcare for all. Our lord would prefer that only the wealthy get health care.

  4. Fools. The Sabbath is Saturday. Way to pay attention in bible study...

  5. How is it possible we still breed people as corrupt or stupid as this?

  6. can't they do an absentee vote? This is just ridiculous, voting against health care would be much more of an affront to their god.

    Voting for health reform is an affront to his wallet.

    All of these conservative pundits (who are ironically the real elite) are only concerned about their accumulated wealth. Why don´t these morons just move to some sh'thole tax heaven....oh I forgot it´s because of greed.
