Video: Something old, something new, something borrowed—something that will 'obliterate Christianity'?

by Jeremy Hooper

Remember a couple of weeks ago, when Glenn Beck said that if people were anti-gay then he didn't want them in his circle? Yeah, well—here's one of Beck's favorite guests, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, appearing on Beck's eponymous show on the network he created, accusing gay people of trying "to censor, undermine, and ultimately obliterate Christianity" through our civil marriage rights:

Now, Glenn Beck would surely play those words games that social conservatives always play, claiming that Lapin doesn't "hate gays." But here we have a religious man quite literally saying that married gays are out to rid the world of Christianity. For a person of faith who has dedicated his life and career to Judeo-Christian values and the politicization thereof, there are few worse charges he could make. He is messaging this out to his fellow religious conservatives because he does, in fact, want those people of faith within earshot of his broadcast mic to either build up or maintain a negative portrait of loving same-sex couples—one that comes at the cost of the religion that they have placed at the center of their lives.

Does this constitute as "hating" us? As readers know, I rarely get in that mud, as I think it leads to people arguing subjective labels rather than the pertinent words and actions. But what I do know, is that there are many conservative Christians out there who will take Rabbi Lapin's loose lips and decide for themselves how they can and will sink our ships. And let's be clear: He is stirring the pot because he wants it riled up. Glenn Beck is helping him do it.
