Glenn Beck: If you hate gays, you 'have no place calling yourself a fan of mine'

by Jeremy Hooper

One of Glenn Beck's bosom buddies is David Barton, a man who has claimed that HIV/AIDS is God's punishment, says homosexuality should be regulated like cigarettes, says homosexuality will "kill the blessing" on our nation, and claims gays are flouting evolutionary law (Barton quote bank). Rabbi Daniel Lappin, who said gay men should've been quarantined during the AIDS crisis, is another regular Beck guest. Plus, Beck routinely brings on guests who fuel some of this nation's worst anti-gay animus.

But Beck is no fan of Vladimir Putin or his country's draconian anti-gay laws. And yesterday, the conservative host used Putin to declare that anyone in this country who hates gay people is not welcome in his own stable of fans:

Great, Mr. Beck. So does this mean you'll start calling out your pals in the U.S Senate when they suggest that our loving marriages are just a hop, skip, and bark away from marriage between human and animal?
