    You can't make this stuff up. Fasting not to seek God, but to elevate a candidate, sounds like idolatry from Glenn Beck.

    Following Donald Trump’s victory in the South Carolina GOP primary, talk radio host Glenn Beck urged his Facebook followers to join him and his family in fasting for GOP candidate
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
    .

    “I would like to ask you to join me and my family Monday in a fast for Ted Cruz, our country and the Nevada caucus,” Beck wrote on his Facebook page after the South Carolina election results showed a decisive double-digit victory for Trump, whose candidacy Beck has been staunchly opposed to.

    In an earlier Facebook post, Beck stated:

    It was a fair fight.
    Congratulations Donald Trump on South Carolina.
    #1. Donald Trump
    #2. Marco Rubio
    #3. Ted Cruz

    On to Nevada. I will join Ted Cruz in Vegas tomorrow night and Reno Monday.
    It is time for the others to drop out and make this the 3 way race we all know it is.
    Who that helps, I don’t know, but it is time to begin to narrow the field. I would assume the establishment will coalesce around Rubio. Ted will make his own way as will trump.

    Beck endorsed Cruz before the Iowa caucus last month and has been traveling and campaigning with the Texas senator ever since. At a press conference in South Carolina this week, Beck speculated as to whether his presence on the campaign trail “helps Ted Cruz or not,” saying that he didn’t know, but felt compelled to “do everything I can” to help Cruz.

    This week Beck also expressed his belief that God allowed Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia to die in order to “wake America up to how close we are to the loss of our freedom” and to the necessity of electing Cruz to name Scalia’s replacement.

    Beck also stated that “if the country is lost, it will be lost because of the Christians” who did not support Cruz.

    “There will be no one else to blame,” he added. “You can’t blame the progressives. You can’t blame the left. You can’t blame Hillary Clinton. You can’t blame anyone else but the Christians who are not living and voting their principles.”

    Wow, God killed Scalia to help the Cruz campaign, if you believe Glenn Beck, which I don't.
    ......................... I only wish Ted Cruz didn't trust Glenn Beck.

    ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and You have not seen?
    Why have we afflicted our souls, and You take no notice?’

    “In fact, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, And exploit all your laborers.
    Indeed you fast for strife and debate,
    And to strike with the fist of wickedness.

    Isaiah 58:3-4

    It's not supposed to be a political publicity stunt....."Look at me!"

    “And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.” (Matthew 6:16)

    Maybe Glenn figures "outrageous" works for Donald Trump, so he thought he'd try it. But you gotta know HOW to do outrageous, or it just sort of falls...flat... o_O

    Haven't even heard Beck's voice in years. I prefer it that way.

    Hope this doesn't get out to many beyond Glock Talk for Cruz' sake.

    I just wonder about his appeal with evangelicals. I grew up in a pretty fundy Christian church and we were taught that Mormonism was a cult and that we shouldn't even have Mormon friends any more than we should have gay or atheist friends. When I got older and researched what they actually believed I was shocked that adults who can drive cars and make mortgage payments actually bought into this obvious fraud.

    Beck is either actually mentally ill and truly believes he has God's cell phone number or a hell of a good actor, either way he has some Gold to sell you.

    Beck probably is mentally ill, so are Bill Maher and Michael Moore, probably. There are a lot of mentally ill people making a decent living. Bill O'Reilly is also a whack job in some ways, like if someone mentions Sarah Palin he goes crazy ... that chick really messes with his mind!
