Beck, Driscoll declare the Religious Right dead

See also

Like many devoted instigators, Glenn Beck lives in a fantasy world in which reality is not only devoid of any factual basis, but is completely fluid and shifts to whatever would be most convenient for the far-right agenda at the moment.

Beck demonstrated this again during his Wednesday night broadcast, during which he interviewed the controversial pastor and accused plagiarist, Mark Driscoll.

Early on in the discussion, Driscoll revealed that his church had recently conducted a survey to find out why people do not attend or stop attending church and learned that the main reason given is that Christians and the church are seen as intolerant.

This would have been a good start. Unfortunately, Beck disagreed.

Readers of this column will be shocked to learn that Beck asserted that it was actually progressives and gay rights activists who are the intolerant ones because they are imposing their agenda upon Christians, who just want is to be left alone to worship God as they see fit.

As has been covered countless times by this column, America is not oppressing Christians by not letting them oppress non-Christians. This is a misconception commonly perpetuated, as one might expect, by the Religious Right.

Beck almost became grounded back in reality when he stated that anti-gay activists had "lost the war," and even stated that Christians need to declare that they are not trying to tell people how to live.

Driscoll agreed, saying "the Religious Right, the Moral Majority, everybody put those t-shirts away, nobody is wearing them."

"Right," Beck responded. "That is over."

To which I would invite Beck and Driscoll to spend one minute browsing through the content on this column, which has been active for less than a year as of this article's publication, then try and say with a straight face that the Religious Right is dead.
