One of the more powerful moments in Glenn Beck’s speech last week in Toronto was his passionate reading of Rudyard Kipling’s poem, The Gods of the Copybook Headings. Give it a listen, ponder the words and what they mean for us today and share this with your friends.

Warren Kinsella came on the show Wednesday and defended section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act. That’s the hurt feelings on the internet provision. You can watch the post here and see if you agree with Kinsella or me.
But I have to wonder why Kinsella supports the hurt feelings on the internet provision because he seems to take joy in throwing around accusations. He’s called plenty of conservative commentators and bloggers racists and Nazis simply because he disagrees with their politics.
Now he’s posted about a Jewish group and a Christian group joining together to bring Glenn Beck to Toronto. Kinsella calls Beck an anti-Semite, a rather slanderous claim, and questions the sanity of the folks at Uptown Chabad and International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (Canada). To prove Beck is an anti-Semite with a real hate on for Jews, Kinsella links to a number of left-wing websites that hate Beck.
Now I don’t know if Kinsella has ever watched Beck or listened to his radio program but one thing that no one who has listened to him could say is that Beck is an anti-Semite. I had lunch recently with two rabbis who couldn’t say enough good things about Beck.
Glenn Beck is a man who has stood with and for Israel more than anyone lately.
Warren my friend, you are out to lunch on this.
I have to say, it is amazing that calling people Nazis and anti-Semites hasn’t landed any section 13 complaints. Although as we know, that section is on hold due to a prior ruling that it is unconstitutional and is being challenged in court.
With two young boys at home obsessed with Transformers I have of course seen the over-sexed, super violent movie that is marketed to death towards children. There ain’t much thinking and not much of a plot but for kicks that like things blowing up, it isn’t too bad.
Glenn Beck has a different idea.
Last Friday on his radio show Beck offered a brutal review of the film and one of the stars – Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Here’s how his website described it.
It’s summer, which means big blockbuster action movies! And lucky for Glenn, he’s got afternoons in the summer a little more open without a TV show until September. He’s seen a few movies this summer, including Green Lantern and Transformers. He gave them both pretty harsh reviews, but his critique of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the eye-candy replacement of Megan Fox in Transformers, has to be seen to believed.
