Another Evangelical goes on an anti-Glenn Beck, Mormonism is a cult rant
From Right Wing Watch
Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission had this to say about Beck and his uh religion.
Mormons, and especially their missionaries, intentionally prey on ill-informed people by falsely identifying themselves as Christians, even though honest Mormons know they reject the essential doctrines of Christianity.
Mormons redefine Christian terms and use them in deceptive ways so that, if you weren’t very well informed, you wouldn’t know they were doing it. They even have a name for the practice; “Lying for the Lord.”
Mormons know if they told people the truth of what they believe up front they would not be able to persuade them to become Mormons. So they present a warm fuzzy, family facade and withhold their strange doctrines, practices and secret rituals until after they have created trust and an emotional bond.
Beck even laments regularly on his TV show that people don’t believe he’s a Christian. Sorry Glenn, but you can’t have it both ways. It’s either Jesus Christ of the Bible or Joseph Smith and the doctrines of Mormonism. If Beck ever renounces his Mormonism, then I will believe he’s become a Christian, in the meantime he sounds just like the rest of the Mormons I’ve known all my life.
He goes on in this vain. Right Wing Watch has the full transcript and the video.
I hope none of Beck’s fans follow this guy. Otherwise Beck might be short a few listeners come Monday morning.
If you have no clue what “Lying for the lord” is, let Bob Millet of BYU explain it.
