Glenn Beck and Mormons

Talk show host Glenn Beck is discussing Al Sharpton and his comments about Mormons as I sit here now, and frankly, he needs to quit whining about religious persecution.

There have been over 65,000,000 Bible believing Christians martyred over the past two thousand years, Jehovah's Witnesses were massacred by the Nazi's, everybody gets a little persecution so he can just quit complaining about a little persecution, the Bible says it's good for you.

Secondly, Mormons have done plenty of persecution of their own, you need read only a little history to learn about the little wars, attacks and massacres on both sides. I recommend the book "One Nation Under Gods: A History of the Mormon Church" by Richard Abanes. It's a very well researched book by a guy who deals with Mormons all the time. I read it very quickly, it reads like a novel because it's just appalling how people could actually buy what Joseph Smith was selling. Even more appalling is that people are still buying it today.

Anyway Glenn, if you expect to call your self a Christian or someone who believes in God, just accept your persecution and take it like a man. It's part of the territory. And if you expect to deny the historic Christian faith, you're gonna have to stand up to that criticism too.
