Mormon Conservative Talk Show Host Glenn Beck: ‘Sometimes God Really S*cks’

The Blaze, the news publication of Mormon conservative talk show host Glenn Bleck, reported this week on the commentator’s reaction to the reelection of Barack Obama.

“Man, sometimes God really s*cks,” Beck said. “I got up yesterday at 3:00 in the morning and I knew. And I couldn’t sleep, and I started to say my prayers and I got up and kneeled down by the edge of my bed, and I knew that — or I suspected that my mind’s not God’s mind — and the peace and the comfort that he had given me and so many of my friends was not about an election.”

“God’s about a bigger picture than an election or a candidate,” he continued. “God is about the freedom of mankind. God is about the Constitution, which is divinely inspired.”

In the weeks prior to the election, Beck had made comments that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was trailing in the polls because God wanted to perform a miracle in the end.

“God is trying to make this so clear to us that if it happens, it’s His finger, because nothing looks good,” he said. “And yet, everybody I know who I consider a spiritual giant feels good. And it bothers me that I feel good because, I’m like, there’s no reason that I should feel good on this.”

Following Romney’s loss, Beck released a new t-shirt for sale this week that says “O crap,” with the “O” being the Obama symbol.

The final results of the national electoral map were Obama 332 to Romney 206.

    God spoke in the election, saying you don’t speak for Him.

    Glenn, I fasted along with you for three weeks and I prayed and prayed. I bought a pair of your $145 jeans that make me look like Dick Morris and now this? What else must we do Glenn? I followed your orders and bought the collectible gold coins that are only worth 60% of the price of actual gold. I bought the survival seeds which turned out to be….seeds, and Obama still won. Why has God forsaken us Glenn?

    I just found out that Glenn has another concert/spectacle planned for next summer. I’m really excited and I’ve already bought tickets for it and have my new $165 Glenn Beck jeans cleaned pressed and starched in anticipation of the event. Its called Resoring Wealth. Tickets will run you $4000 for a private prayer session and meet and greet with Glenn or $2 and 35 cents for stadium seating.

    I had similiar feelings as the rest who was shocked over the Obama win but I must say that all of those white folks who choose Obama by not voting have been blessed with the desires of their hearts and I am sure before this is over they will have major regrets because of the way it will effect their lives in the future. The win came by two sources. 1. Was the spending that has gone out of control especially by the last two administrations and those who voted for Obama because of the freebees they think they are getting whether it be those at the alternative energy companies or those who really believe that Obamacare (HillaryCare circa 1994-2001) or any number of other free give aways that Obama used to by your vote.

    2. Having grown up in downstate Illinois I have abserved what was historically called the Daly Democrat Machine. This of course is the power that placed Obama in office in 2008. I would just encourage everyone to check out Illinois and their economic condition and remember when things get really tough that it was this Chicago legal Mafia who put the state of Illinois at the edge of the economic cliff and just know the only hope for my belived home state is for Obama and his gang to bail them and if they do it will be just a mere band aid unless of course they are able to find a man of integrity like Mitt Romney who was in fact another victim of the Chicago Gang and their propaganda machine that has all but destroyed the once Great State of Illinois.

    It is the Lord’s will that we obtain that which we desireand He does permit us to choose that course whether it be good or evil. If we support evil then it is evil that we will definitely receive.

    The very bible that many think is inerrant is filled with accounts of this being the case. The Lord permits the wicked to destroy the wicked. If one were to read the first 5 or 6 chapters of Daniel they would see that the Lord is the one who places presidents and kings and rulers in power even the most base of men in order to chastise those who follow the wrong course and to keep those who choose the proper course on the strait and narrow. We will pay for this choice we have made.
