Glenn Beck does atheism

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Here's some fun for you - many of you will be aware of Glenn Beck, the new poster-boy of America's ranting right-wing cable news channel Fox News. He's become famous because he makes some of Fox's other "star presenters" – Bill O'Reilly, for example – look like shining examples of sanity.

I'm sure it's not the first time, but since I've never seen him tackle the subject before, I thought I'd share it on here.

Using the same logic-path that led some to create the whole "death panel" idea, I am going to conclude that Glenn Beck is advocating Christian suicide bombers. His favorite words: "...As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free."

...I'm just sayin'.

Was anyone else reminded of Lewis Protero from V for Vendetta? His godlessness speech at the start is chillingly similar.
