Last seen urging people to write in Jesus Christ for president of the United States (frivolous, blasphemous, or both?), televangelist Rev. Bill Keller sent me an email yesterday charging Glenn Beck and a cast of thousands with being servants of Satan.
It’s been a while since I’ve read anything as off-the-wall as this six-page rant. Beck is a Mormon, says Keller; the Mormons are a Satan-worshiping cult; therefore Glen Beck is a Satan-worshiper.
Also actively serving the Devil, according to Keller, are all Mormons, Ravi Zacharias, Mitt Romney, the late Jerry Falwell, David Barton, John Hagee, Ralph Reed, the TEA Party, Republicans in general and Dick Armey in particular, and a few people whose names I don’t recognize.
Here is a quote from the email, reproduced as is:
GLENN BECK IS THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN ON THE PLANET, INCLUDING AL-BAGHADADI THE HEAD OF ISIS!!!… Beck is FAR more dangerous than Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of ISIS, since all al-Baghdadi wants to do is cut off your head. Beck on the other hand, wants to help lead your soul to hell!
Ravi Zacharias? David Barton? Jerry Falwell? Well, they had dealings with Mormons, didn’t they?
Personally, I don’t believe that Mormons are, by definition, Christians, any more than Jews or Hindus are. But I’m pretty sure Ravi Zacharias and David Barton are Christians, and I really wonder about this guy Keller, who seems to be saying “Everybody’s a devil-worshipper except me! I’m the only Christian you’ve got!”
If that’s not pure baloney, we’re all in deep trouble.
