Please, Please Stop Saying God Makes You Do Things
Glenn Beck says he went after Van Jones because God told him to. He didn’t even know who Van Jones was, but when he heard the name he instructed his staff to look into Van Jones and New Orleans. Now he has the same feeling about a report the Justice Department will relaunch a task force on domestic terrorism, and we must listen because God directed him correctly on Van Jones.
“I really don’t know how we figured out Van Jones,” Beck said. “That was not from man, I really don’t think.”
Beck says he simply heard Jones’ name and somehow immediately knew to instruct his staff begin to investigate Jones and ties to Hurricane Katrina, which led to Beck’s amazing discovery that Jones and ACORN were responsible for the failure of the levees in New Orleans during the hurricane in order to wipe out all the records and cover up their massive corruption.
Obviously, given that record of accuracy, we should all be very alarmed by Beck’s gut feeling about these new reports as well.
Can we please just stop giving credibility to people who use God as an excuse? This is the converse of “The Devil made me d it.” We are supposed to be impressed that special people get special messages from God. Stop using God like this. Just, stop it.
