Glenn Beck Waffling?
A friend of mine from church sent me an email today. While he’s not politically active accept for voting, he’s a conservative guy with a good set of values. We talk a lot and he knows about my involvement and that I am a fan of several in the conservative media including Glenn Beck and Michael Savage, to name a couple.
Anyway, his email discussed the buzz that’s been going around in the last several days concerning Glenn Beck and his supposed reversal on the subject of global warming/climate change.
His email got me to thinking and my response was essentially as follows. I’m not sure what’s up; it might be a lot of things. As I’m a regular listener and haven’t personally heard GB say anything like this, I’m thinking it could be and likely is, the libs taking text out of context to try and paint him in a bad light with his audience. Without a doubt, his detractors would do anything to discredit him. Let’s face it, we love his books and his shows in the various media; and we gobble it up, much to the chagrin of the libs whose own media outlets are steadily losing ground on every front.
A lot of us may look to him as a defacto leader of the conservative movement; some even want to see him run for office. I don’t want him to run by the way, as I believe he does more good for us from where he sits than he could if elected. And until I hear/see actual evidence to the contrary, I will continue to believe that he is what he appears to be; but who knows. At the end of the day, he is admittedly an entertainer and as incredulous as it is to imagine, could harbor differing thoughts from his publicly expressed viewpoints.
Having said that; at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what Glenn Beck, Michael Savage, or anyone else on either side of the issues has to say, our focus needs to be unwavering.
Because it is so easy to get distracted by the constant barrage of stuff from all sides, we need to constantly remind ourselves that there is only one who matters and He is in complete control. All the political pundits, Hollywood elitists, politicians/morons, average slobs like me, and you name it, don’t amount to a hill of beans in the final analysis.
Be of good cheer. The battle is won.
