Fox or Foe?

Glenn Beck, Fox talk show host, is at it again.
In his last show, he spoke about Derrion Albert, the 16-year-old who was beaten and killed in a gang fight. Derrion was not even a member of either gang -- he was only trying to help a friend and got caught in the violence.

But the controversy is in Glenn Beck's monologue titled, "God Is Old News; Just Ask the Government." Glenn took advantage Derrion's story and used this tragedy to preach.
"What has caused this?...
God is no longer imprinted on America. Instead of being held up, God is being taken down."
I was most aggravated by this next quote.
"Maybe we need to stop looking at social justice and start looking at eternal justice."
It doesn't matter whether or not there is a god or gods. No matter what, we must all take responsibility. Just as we don't blame "God" for tragedies like this one, we cannot give "God" credit for things like making America powerful (Glenn talks about this in his speech too).

Having said that, there is one thing Glenn said that I do agree with.
"Let's celebrate our freedom...But let's not kill each other."
