Glenn is back on TV tonight at 5pm ET with a look at controversial “Zealot” book

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

The new book Zealot claims to provide a ‘historical’ look at the life of Jesus, and its author, Reza Aslan, is being hailed as a ‘neutral historian’ and ‘religious scholar’ by many in the media. Tonight, Glenn exposes the real reason Aslan wrote this book… and it has nothing to do with religion. Don’t miss the Glenn Beck Program TONIGHT at 5pm ET only on TheBlaze. Not a subscriber?

    Get on this Glenn.  This arrogant loser needs to be defamed for his defamation of Christ.  Listen to all of you liberals and your hatred of Christians!  It’s self-evident!  Can any of you blasphemously hateful bastards please tell me what you would like done to Christians?? Come on, I want your full hate to hit me NOW!

    Oppressive regime run by MUSLIMS!  4 phds 4phds 4phds…are YOU Aslan?  Because you are parroting his arrogant BS.

  • JETS#1

     Calm down dude this has nothing to do with your beliefs, out of the global pop of
    78,860,791 there are 22,708,799 Christians so that means there are 56,151,992 people who think Jesus was just a guy why shouldn’t a guy out of that 56,151,992 people write a book about his views of Jesus

  • JETS#1

    So? There are oppressive regimes run by Christians, Jews, Hindus and pretty much every faith

    A man who denies the real essence of Christ thinks that he is an authority on Christ.  He HAS NO CREDIBILITY ON THE SUBJECT!  His book is bunk by default!

    There is no current regime in the entire world today that is run by Christians and oppresses anybody who isn’t Christian.  Not one.  The only place run by Jews is Israel.  The have been on the defensive since 1948.  They had to win a war at the cost of 4,000 of them just to get independence.  The ONLY place run by Hindus is India.  That’s the only one where you’re correct.  But of course it isn’t Christians running that show.

     So unless you think hes the son of god you can’t talk about him dude get out of the bubble we cant say for sure if he is the messiah but we can say he was real and had a real impact on his lifetime

    Sweetheart Reza didn’t defame anybody, unless if you call citing the facts, as being defamatory.  Honey, nobody hates chistians.  On the contrary, I feel sorry for them.  I feel sorry for the “simple-folk” who have been fleeced by religion.  But you’re “willfully-ignorant” so you deserve what you get.  BATTA-BING!!

    If you don’t think he’s the Son of God then you can’t be an expert on him since you’ve denied the most important aspect of his essence.  It’s moronic to call yourself an expert on a man if you can’t understand the most obvious aspect about him.  HE IS THE SON OF GOD.  To claim otherwise is patently moronic.  I can’t be an expert on Alexander the Great if I deny that he was the King of Macedonia.  I can’t be an expert on George Washington if I deny that he was the first President of the United States.  I can’t be an expert on the Miami Heat if I deny that they won the last two NBA championships.  Whether or not you or Dr. Aslan likes it, if you deny the essence of something, you are a complete idiot on the subject, even if you have 4 THOUSAND phds.

  • JETS#1

    Why is it moronic? The problem with your comparisons are that Alexander,Washington, and the Heat had record of their accomplishments in their lifetime most records on Jesus were written hundreds of years after he died

    Sweetheart you claimed “no current regime in the world is run by Christians, didn’t you?  You can’t possibly be this stupid, can you?  Have you ever heard of the Vatican you bonehead.  You must be a creationist, am I right?

    Bert you are an embodiment of very negative conservative stereotype I hope you realize that

    To vacman, I said that no current regime that is run by Christians (there are some, like the Vatican) is oppressing people that aren’t Christian.  I did NOT say that no place is run by Christians.  That was your misquote.  To Jets, I have a problem with a guy calling me a sweetheart.  I fucking hate it and vacman knows it.  He is setting me off on purpose because he is an instigator piece of shit who by some miracle is still breathing.  That has more to do with the fact that I have a flaw…an irascible temper.

    Sweetheart I want you to understand one thing.  What we say on this site is one thing. We can fuck around all we want.
    But when you make a statement like you have. “be happy I don’t know where you live.”  I consider that a terrorist statement! 
     Are you threatening me?  You can’t be that stupid, can you?  
    You do realize this is a monitored site, don’t you?  If I file a terrorist threat, the FBI will be at your door in no time, you stupid asshole.  Don’t call my bluff, I ain’t fuckin around.  I do believe an apology is in order.  I’m waiting.  I’m sorry, will be just fine.  And then we can move on.

    Christianity was the ultimate product of religious syncretism in the ancient world. Its emergence owed nothing to a holy carpenter. There were many Jesuses but the fable was a cultural construct.
    The nativity yarn is a concatenation of nonsense. The genealogies of Jesus, both Matthew’s version and Luke’s, are pious fiction. Nazareth did not exist in the 1st century AD – the area was a burial ground of rock-cut tombs.
    With multiple authors behind the original gospel story it is no surprise that the figure of “Jesus” is a mess of contradictions. Yet the story is so thinly drawn that being a “good Christian” might mean almost anything.
    The 12 disciples are as fictitious as their master, invented to legitimise the claims of the early churches. The original Mary was not a virgin, that idea was borrowed from pagan goddesses. The pagan world knew all about virgins getting pregnant by randy gods: The Mythical “Virgin Mother”.
    Scholars have known all this for more than 200 years but priestcraft is a highly profitable business and finances an industry of deceit to keep the show on the road.
    “Jesus better documented than any other ancient figure”? Don’t believe a word of it. Unlike the mythical Jesus, a real historical figure like Julius Caesar has a mass of mutually supporting evidence.

    Sammy baby, Reza has 4 degrees 1 is a PHD.  Try to keep up honey.  Never mind how many degrees he has, concentrate on what he is telling you  There are no jesus eyewitnesses, who wrote in the new testament.  NONE!  Ain’t that a kick in the balls?  Your god has no eyewitness accounts.  Now what?

    Sammy show us how reza is lying.  Remember you have to be specific.  Come on babe, do what you do best.  Make a fool out of yourself on a national blog.  Go ahead Sam shoot yourself in the foot again.  We’re waiting.  BATTA-BING!!

    Where’s my apology?  You made a claim that Mark started writing 2-4 years after jesus died.  Not according to Reza.  Do you know something that he doesn’t know?  Have you spent the last 20 years studying the life of jesus?
    Now you know what I always say.  Post your proof or piss off.  Okay?

    None in history or religion and he the one saying that he had 4 PHDs maybe you should go remind him of that fact he don’t moron.

    Oh moron he was caught red handed in a few lies like saying he had a PHD in history and Religion and many other so called facts in his crapy book. Pay attention moron I know it hard for liberals not to get distracted by shiny objects but please try or you just make yourself look like a moron again.

    He does not have 4 Ph.D’s. he teaches ‘Creative Writing’ so he’ s very creative and wrote a bunch of Creative things about Jesus, but this doesn’t mean that what he wrote is true.

    Sweetheart, I love it when you get specific, and post evidence. Because this is when I get to rip you a new asshole. 
    You claimed your source of eyewitnesses for jesus was by lee strobel.  You understand that strobel is a creationist, don’t you?  He thinks the world is less then 10,000 years old want to use him as a reference.  Are you nuts?
    There are no eyewitness’s for jesus.  You’ve been had!  Go to the :55 sec mark of this video and strobel will admit “the gospel of mark is based on the eyewitness accounts of the apostle peter.”  WTF!!! 
    So my friend, as you can see, from your own sources.  That mark is not an eyewitness to the crucifixion and he is NOT an eyewitnesses to jesus.  That’s what I call a BATTA-BING-BITCH-SLAP!!! 
     So you got it all wrong, and this is from the mouth of the guy your citing as a source.  Now I understand why you guys rarely post evidence, because when you do you end up shooting yourself in the foot.  Thank You.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaR-skui5HQ
    I’m still waiting for my apology.  BATTA-BING!  You should start learning from people like richard dawkins instead of people who make you embarrass yourself to your friends and family.  Strobel is playing you for the fool you are.  How does it feel?  BATTA-BING!!

    Why do we even care about this guy? It’s not like he’s the first person to come up with the idea that Jesus isn’t who we think He is. Or the first person to try and discount the veracity of the Gospels. That’s nothing new. 

    Check out people like Lee Strobel instead.
