Did Glenn just offer a hundred grand to baptize Penn Jillette?

Continuing a series of discussions on out-of-the-box thinking and the solutions to the problems on the horizon, Glenn sat down with illusionist, author, and actor Penn Jillette.

One of the big topics they discussed was how new technology has allowed people to create outside of the established system. For his new film, Director’s Cut, Penn actually went directly to people all over the world to crowdfund his film.

“If you want to sell a movie you’ve got a bout seven people you can go to,” Penn explained, “and up until about five years ago if they said no you pretty much couldn’t make that movie.”

“Now crowdfunding is happening and you can say to people ‘Do you want to see this movie? It might not be a blockbuster. It might not make $100 million dollars. But if you want to see it you can throw in $15, $20. Pay for the DVD before you see it – we can make this whole movie’,” Penn explained.

” We just had the guy from Gearbox, the gamer guy just paid $25,000, put that in the movie in order to cut my ponytail off.  So he will be cutting off my ponytail.” Penn said.

“Hundred grand to baptize you,” Glenn joked.

Glenn said that everything people are feeling right now goes back to a resistance to authoritarian ideas. Penn agreed, saying that government is really only there to protect rights and handle the things too dangerous to privatize, like the police and the military.

Later in the show, Penn talked to Glenn about the advantages of technology and why the singularity isn’t necessarily as scary as it sounds.

Finally, Penn told Glenn why his biggest fear isn’t death:

        • fed up!

          your premise is completely wrong. Historically all mankind has a belief in one supreme Creator. All civilizations have had this belief and atheism is pretty much a modern idea. Therefore you have to prove that God doesn’t exist.

          • lumpy

            modern? no not even buddy. maybe you should look things up before claiming you know it when you really dont lolol

          • LogicisGood

            There is absolutely no logic in what you just wrote… Because many people believe something, it is true and therefore an atheist would have to prove otherwise. You are stating that something exists… prove it. People believed the world was flat at one point, that didn’t make it true; it only showed the ignorance of the people at that time. All people are born atheists until someone starts lying to them.

          • Agnostic

            But you yourself believe in something you have no proof of. You say there is no god. I say you cannot prove this.

          • LogicisGood

            I do not believe in anything. Atheism, by definition is a disbelief or a lack of belief. The only people that believe in something that they have no proof of are Theists. You cannot prove the existence of any god yet you believe. You cannot prove the existence of any god, therefore, I do NOT believe.

          • Agnostic

            So, you believe in the knowledge that there is no god?

          • LogicisGood

            No. I do not believe there is a god. Disbelief is not the same as belief in a negative or denial. Most atheists are not saying they believe there is no god, they are saying they do not believe in god. There is no reason for me to believe, so I do not. If there were a reason for me to believe, then maybe I would. The burden of proof is on the Theist. Why do you believe in your god vs any of the other gods that have been believed in throughout human history? Why is your god different? Why is your god right?

          • Agnostic

            I’m not saying I believe in a god or not.

            But your statement… “there is no god.” You are claiming to know there is no god. This is a universal negative proposition. Conversely, a universal proposition would be something like “all men are mortal.” Now every sentence has a subject and a preposition. A negative proposition claims to know about all of its predicate (in this case reality), but an affirmative proposition claims to know about only some of its predicate. “All men are mortal” means that men are some of the mortals there are. “There is no god” means god is not in reality.

            But this claim – you cannot make it unless you claim omniscience. Have you searched every corner of the universe so you are quite sure that there is no god? Of course not, that’s not possible. But when you say there is no god in this reality you are claiming a knowledge of the universe only a god could have. So, you must either give up your claim that there is no god, or else admit to your divine identity and receive my worship.

          • LogicisGood

            I never said “there is no god”. I said I do not believe there is a god. That is not a statement of fact.

          • Agnostic

            So, there is a god, but you do not believe in him/her?

          • LogicisGood

            No. That is not what was said. I do not believe in god. I do not believe in witches or fairies or flying spaghetti monsters, along with many other things. There is no evidence to believe in them, so I do not. I am not the one making a definitive statement of fact, I am the one asking for evidence of a statement of fact. Theists have the burden of proof, 100%.

          • Agnostic

            But there is evidence of witches, fairies, and flying spaghetti monsters. What are all those stories if not evidence? Have you been everywhere, seen everything to be sure that they are not real?

          • Agnostic

            You are making a definitive statement: “I do not believe in god”/”There is no god.” The only difference between your statement and a theists is theirs is positive and yours is negative. I am the agnostic; you are the atheist. So, I’m asking you to prove your assumption. How do you know there is no god?

          • LogicisGood

            You really have no understanding of atheism. Atheism is not a position of belief. It is a position of a lack of belief. Atheism and Agnostic are not competing stances on religion. It isn’t a line, and Penn explains this very well. You can be an agnostic atheist. or an agnostic theist. or a nostic theist. or a nostic atheist.
            Agnostic vs. Nostic and Atheist vs. Theist are two different questions.

          • Agnostic

            I appreciate your views. However, I think if you follow the statement logically: atheism is a position of a lack of belief — a belief in nothing — where is the proof of the nothing? I have read numerous books on many religions to have a fairly competent grasp on what an atheist believes.

            We are not “competing”, this is true. I have neither a belief nor an unbelief. You have an unbelief in Christianity/Islam/Hinduism etc.. I have nothing to prove. But you do. You cannot demand a theist to prove the existence of a deity when you cannot prove there is none. It is the same thing. They are making a positive definitive statement you are making a negative definitive statement. They are both claims to a belief on reality.

            “Logic is Good.” No, logic is GREAT. And logically speaking you have as much a duty to provide proof for your beliefs as a theist if you are going to be so willing to share them :)

          • LogicisGood

            You still fail to grasp that lack of belief is not belief in nothing. You are agnostic and claim that as position… you haven’t asserted anything. You do not believe and you do not not believe. If you do not believe something to be true then you are an atheist. You are trying to play Switzerland in this whole issue but you fail to realize that by not taking a position, you are asserting yourself as an agnostic atheist, which puts us in the same boat. There is no burden of proof for an agnostic atheist, but there would be for a nostic atheist… which I am not.

          • Idrissa

            I don’t have a problem that life has an origin. Big bang, atom, a god or even a devil. This took place in the past. I just found it laughable those make it sound like the life origin still exist.
            For instance, a tree makes wood which produces fire then ash. By then the tree is long gone forgotten.
            There is no god period.

          • Agnostic

            “I do not believe there is a god” and “there is no god” are the same thing unless you do not trust your own beliefs.

          • LogicisGood

            Lack of belief and the “belief there is a lack of” (or denial) are different things. Once you understand that, you can make an argument.

          • Idrissa

            Just because there is smoke does not mean there is someone who caused the fire. If there was a god he would be good in one thing: “Hiding”

          • JesusSaves

            I believe in Jesus as my Savior because he is the only person who could save me from my sins. God demanded a perfect sacrifice. Someone that was blameless and holy. Yet, he needed to be human, also. His plan was that he loved the people of this world so much that he sent his only Son (God), born of a woman (a human), he lived a perfect life for us, and when the time was right, he died the death for all of us. He did everything for me. I don’t need to do anything to be saved. TRUE Christianity means that my faith in him saves me. It’s done. Every other religion and “god” out there demands that people do something, or do enough deeds, or bow down to a statue or tower, etc. to be saved. True peace and happiness comes through Jesus alone. Without him, you’re constantly looking for someone or something else to fill that void.

            Maybe once you do actually meet you’re maker – you can read your post to him personally, maybe then, you just might convince him that there is no need for change – or to say as you have “I (you) don’t have to do anything to be saved” Your words are not scriptural – more like deadly wishful thinking, better recheck the consequences of not following the word of God precisely as intended by the author.

          • LogicisGood

            Magic is not a belief in god, so a child would be an atheist. The reason a child stops believing in magic is because they are shown with scientific evidence that there are reasons things happen. No magic involved. No man in the clouds. Just science.

          The statement of a true atheist, i.e. “There is no God,” is a positive statement of a negative; that is, the assertion of a purported fact not only without evidence, but with no POSSIBILITY of evidence, since one cannot prove a negative. It is the epitome of blind faith.

          However, the agnostic who says, “I have seen no evidence for the existence of God, and therefore do not believe in the existence of such a being,” with the implied intellectual honesty of being willing to examine such evidence if/when it becomes available, is someone whom I can respect while still with whom disagreeing.

          • Tom Bux

            No, atheists say, they don’t believe. You are getting Atheism (belief) confused with agnosticism (nature of knowing). I am an agnostic atheist. I don’t’ know if there is a god, but the evidence right now does not support that I should believe. The burden of proof to force my belief lies at the hands of someone making an assertion.
            If I said that there is a great teapot beyond Jupiter, and it is the source of all our power, It is not for you to disprove, it is for me to prove as I am the one making the assertion.

          • Anonymous

            Let us believe for a moment that some great teapot does in-fact reside beyond Jupiter – how could this teapot prove to us that it is the source of total power – how would anyone willing to prove for himself discover fact from fiction. I’m not certain about your teapot theory, well actually I am, and I’m also certain that a loving God would not leave us in the dark in accordance with the questions of – Is there a God – How can we prove this God for ourselves with 100% certainty that he is who he says he is.

            Everything imaginable coming out of the mind of man has been preconceived by God and written about in a book known to us as the holy bible, God has a mind far superior to ours and understands the way we think – or – lack thereof.

            A clue….the telling of future world events coming in the form of prophetic writings….not simply once or twice, but several times, in-fact, each and every time God inspired men to pen down future events they came true just as he said they would – many times in the form of deadly wars and famines etc These writings (or warnings if you will) have come to pass in astonishing detail. Not once has the word of God failed the test of time. By this and many other biblical writings (known to us as holy scripture) we are found proving the very real existence of our creator. A being who by the way, tells each of us – that we must prove his existence beyond any doubt. We must form a personal relationship with him – in other words – become friends – God tells us – two cannot walk together unless they agree – be on the same page – understanding right from wrong – good from bad etc.

            So far at least, I haven’t seen a manual for living our lives coming from your tea-pot-god but, the one true God has given his manual to all mankind for a guide for us live by, on how to get along with family – community – and other nations etc – judging by the now infamous history of man, it is clear to me not many of us blown the dust off the bible long enough for us to see for ourselves what lies inside, on the other hand, most of us are more than willing to express to the world our own opinion however ridiculous it may be.

            You’re finally beginning to speak from the heart. It is written in scripture – “Satan is the ‘god’ of this world” – that means 99.9% of all mankind willingly worship the dragon – (otherwise known as Satan) so at least you are far ahead of the 99.9% of thosel currently alive and living.

            You state that “you are a God” I would argue that boast, but that is not what prompted my reply to you. It is also written (in holy scripture) “you are god(s)” – “for that reason were you born”. Tell that to the vast majority of the so-called-godly-worshipers the world over and you may notice a few stones and other swiftly flying projectiles headed in your direction – my point is this – God tells all humans – all of us – to “prove him at his word”, if any are willing to take him up on his seemingly impossible challenge – they would quickly discover to their shame, the error in their thinking and realize for the first time, that the only reason we humans were placed here on this earth is to someday be reborn – that means after our death, to be brought back to a living state and live and cohabit in Gods world. If (and that is a big IF) any are willing to PROVE him, they will also discover, that to live in his world means to take on the same form or body as he – which leads to the fact that – yes – we humans are meant to be GODS. That is what God has been trying to get across from the beginning of our human journey on this planet, but unfortunately, most would rather mock the very verses that detail this astonishing promise falling into the pitfall of never having proved anything for themselves, except perhaps, other than being an obnoxious ass.

            As I reply to your post, you currently have three likes and two dislikes, meaning there is a growing portion of Americans who no longer believe in a creator, but for some unexplained reason, we have a growing number who believe that the material universe has somehow created itself. That is like saying a watchmaker did not create the timepiece, no, it somehow formed itself and became so reliable in its self-engineered state that the whole world now sets its schedule to its precision calling.

        I think there is evidence all around you!

        When I was a child in school and they taught the “Big Bang Theory” on how the universe was made, I stood up to announce to one and all that God created the universe. Now, with time and age, I’ve come to conclude the two ideas aren’t different, but are in fact the same. Why couldn’t scientists have found HOW God did it? He spoke, the Big Bang happened and voila! there it was!!!

        The problem with the scientific explanation is that you CAN’T explain everyone has individual fingerprints, dna, ears, and irises. How can evolution explain that? There is much in the universe that ONLY God could have created and ONLY God could have nurtured and evolved.

        I understand why people have to SEE to believe, but I say you ARE seeing it, you just don’t have your mind open along with your eyes.

          Jinxy76, There are thousands of years of ‘Christian Thinkers and Scientist’ However today, folks that ponder such thought are considered misinformed and worse. We (you and I) are these people. You will find the Secular community has no interest in approaching science from biblical considerations. Let’s start with an example. Recently, a radio program suggested that [insect size is determined by the amount of oxygen the insect can absorb through his legs]. I can remember a fossil of a prehistoric dragonfly identical to dragonflies today except instead of 3 inches of wingspan, it was 3 feet. This brings into question not only age, but when in Earth’s past was the atmospheric oxygen density concentrated enough to support a dragonfly of that size? It also brings into question, what was its natural predator? Modern dragonfly’s natural predators are birds. In the fossil record, the natural predator of this dragonfly should have been the pterodactyl. But modern theory is reluctant to connect the two. The bible says:

          (Gen 2) 4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

          These verses list a period of time in Earth’s history before man when the air was so dense it could not rain. This also gives credit as to the anomaly that modern aerodynamics can’t explain. Which is how the pterodactyl could fly. This verse is also listed before the flood of Noah in the bible. This is only one example. Dragonfly’s are very nimble.

          You actually can explain why people have different ears, eye shape, skin color, irises and the like. It would be a simple Google search of genetic variation, natural selection and evolution. If you have no background in it it will be a long read. Maybe try Khan Academy on YouTube.

        It takes just as much faith to believe that God doesn’t exist as it does to believe God does exist.

        Atheists cannot claim to know definitively that there is no God based on ‘lack of evidence’ and claim to be reasonable when basic common sense tells you that a simple lack of evidence doesn’t prove anything either way.

        Atheists believe that there is no God based on the exact same amount of faith and evidence that religious people have.

        Agnostics, on the other hand, are at least smart enough to say ‘I don’t know because I don’t have enough information to make a reasoned decision on the matter’.

        • B D

          Faith? There’s a difference between a belief that one defends by quoting evidence & logic and a belief that is supported only by tradition & authority. The conflation of faith as “unevidenced belief” with faith as “justified confidence” is simply a word trick used to buttress religion.

        The real-burden of those who deny the existence of God today, will come in the not to distant future, that is. when God introduces himself to the whole world. I must say though, that what you have posted (above) does indicate not only your own stupidity, and exposes – in you – a low level ability to “prove all things” for yourself ( that also would include multiple billions of the so-called believers) as God admonishes all mankind to do – very few indeed have truly excepted his challenge, because if they did (or would) – you see, there is still time to do so, but time is quickly running out, these so-called “god-fearing men and women would suddenly turn away from their self made god unto the one and only true Eternal God realizing the truth for the first time in their lives. Instead though, they would rather believe a lie and continue on living in what they “insist” is real – but sadly, it is only a self-deception they too willingly pass on from generation to generation.

        God can be proven with absolute clarity and understanding – he is real – we on the other hand, are only temporary dwellers on this planet – the catch is – God is offering us (mankind) the same eternal life he has always enjoyed – to mockingly ignore – is a burden that will come back and bite us sometime in the future.

        Science only woks best – if one is willing to prove all things for himself or herself, and doesn’t just take the word of another man. That is the same simple equation that God has offered.

Common sense tells us that the supernatural doesn’t exist. God doesn’t exist. All religious narratives were created by men and they’re all false. They’re fantasy. Face it.

        I’m sorry. I DON’T feel a BURDEN of Proof, is needed. You can worship a green tree frog, as your god, or no god, and I truly don’t care. As The ancient philosopher Lao-Tzu said: “When The STUDENT is ready, the TEACHER will appear.” It’s as true regarding religion, as it is in high school and as it was 200 years age. You wanna find out about religion? There are many avenues for study. You wanna learn to speak French? Same goes. You wanna be an Atheist, (which I truly don’t understand,) have at it. Be forewarned, that if you ask me about my God, I will first determine your motives, and whether you are indeed, interested in my personal beliefs. My time is too valuable to waste on those who have ulterior motives and who wish to gather personal information for their sport of the moment.

          You pretenders can play in your fantasy world to your heart’s content and no one cares. The problem is, you try and drag the rest of us along for the ride so you’re getting push back and demands for proof and you have none. I’m happy that humanity is waking up and discarding religion.

      • Anonymous

        No, in fact the existence of all we know is far more evidence of something greater, a creator, God if you will, then any assertion that there is no God. So the burden of proof falls on those making any assertion that no God exists. So, go ahead, prove it!

    Isaiah 5:
    18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:

    19 That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!

    20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

    22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

    23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

    24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

    25 Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

    26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:

    27 None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:

    28 Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses’ hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:

    29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.

    30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

      You’re really a great example of a religious extremist Michael. Your Bible quotes don’t reach people who are critical thinkers because we don’t waste our time reading that nonsense. If you want to make a statement, use your own words.

      • http://mudpuddlebunny.wordpress.com/ MudPuddleBunny

        I think Michael is right on the money here — You can be a critical thinker as you like to call it, but believe in God as well. Science and critical thinking don’t have to replace God, they can work together for a higher understanding. It doesn’t have to be this way or that — when given the either/or scenario, more times than not its neither. Only satan works with absolutes.

        • B D

          If I told you that your toothache is the result of an evil spirit, would you also call that “enlightenment?” Because that’s also what people who invented religion thought. We know better now because of science. You really have to have your thinking shut off to still believe what they said about god, demons, devils, angels, ghost and the rest of the supernatural narrative they also believed in.

    Penn is a libertarian and an atheist. His views on religion are skewed but he is a good guy.

    • ScienceWorksBest

      His view on religion is that there’s no evidence to support it being real and not myth, so he can’t say he knows it’s true until evidence is presented. That’s a reasonable position. It’s not skewed. Think about it.

      • John

        Or, is he just choosing to ignore the evidence? Regardless, unlike the left, he is not trying to impose his views upon all of us through government force. This is what those who call themselves conservatives must learn to do as well.

      • Anonymous

        The problem is that there are two kinds of propositions: those in the domain of reason (which can be proved or disproved by empirical fact), and those in the domain of faith (not subject to such empirical proof). The proposition “God exists” is in the domain of faith, not reason (though there are far stronger philosophical arguments FOR the existence of God than against), and therefore will never be proved to those people who insist on empirical proof.

        “Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” ― G.K. Chesterton, in his book “Orthodoxy”

    So what we have here is typical media stuff. Penn Jillette is crowd sourcing the financing of his movie project, so he uses Glenn Beck and his audience to publicize it and raise money off them. Beck in turn uses Penn as a prop to normalize his image with critical thinkers/nonreligious people/demographic, where Beck has almost no numbers. Both of these guys are trying to expand their audience, generate revenue. That’s all that’s happening here. I think Penn is the loser, because associating with Beck irritates his audience, while Beck gets to project a more sane image of himself by associating with a critical thinker and mainstream entertainer.

    What’s your point Glenn in baptizing Penn? Baptism is a picture of what has already happened in your heart. It’s the gospel… Jesus died, was buried and rose again…baptism is the outward showing of what has happened in your heart…you have died to self and are resurrected to new life in Him. Penn does not claim any of that and the baptizing would be meaningless. Baptism doesn’t get you to heaven! Love Penn and think he is a smart man, just praying God will reveal Himself to Penn. The burden of proof is all around us and people still choose not to believe!

    • Sparky McFarland

      As an ex Morman I often think about how I am expected to accept and tolerate their belief and faith, while experiencing their rejection of my lack (or loss) of faith. If you have faith and believe – great. Why can’t I not believe and acknowledge my own personal lack of faith? I do not see myself as evil, just being honest. I do not claim to be an agnostic, or an atheist – just some one who has no faith, and who does not want others faith to be imposed upon them.

    actual subject matter is beyond their intellectual grasp. Wow. This is
    like the Inquisition in reverse.

    Why are you
    people feeding the atheist trolls? They aren’t even bright enough to
    actually have a discussion on the topic; they simply throw out insults
    and then pat themselves on their backs and tell themselves how clever
    they are. When someone doesn’t even know the differences between
    atheism, agnosticism, polytheism, and monotheism, they aren’t worth
    arguing with. HINT: There is no such thing as an agnostic-atheist.
    Just sayin’. The truth is that anyone who is willing to state
    absolutely that God doesn’t exist is no more or less faith based than
    someone who states that God does exist. Given no concrete data either
    direction, it seems a futile argument to have. Religion is personal.

    One of Americas greatest strengths comes in the ability for everyone to express their own opinion. On the contrary, one of Americas biggest weaknesses comes in the ability for one and all to express their own opinion.

    The democrats argue against the conservative viewpoint, the republicans argue against the liberal point of view. So who is right.

    Could it be that the very political party now tearing and ripping this nation apart at the seams (Democrats) was/is a unwitting creation of the god fearing conservatives among us?

    How divided we as a people have become. There is a growing majority on the left who refuse to believe in a Higher Being, yet those claiming to understand God and his world and what his plans for mankind are, have such a difference of opinion is it any wonder that those claiming to be Christian are losing the battle.

    If those claiming to understand the Word of God actually do, why all the discord, why the massive confusion between religious sects? Why is our nation quickly becoming a nation where anything goes – strike that – everything goes! America has become an evil society, we’re the laughing joke of the world – no longer are we looked up too with respect, but we have steadily become hated by all nations, why?

    I’m afraid our national problems have only just begun. There’s no chance of traveling the road we’re on much further without some sort of civil confrontation. But, a confrontation of the minds leading to a shedding of blood, might be exactly what we need to wake us up.

    A call for those claiming the name of religion – a call for those who say they know and understand the meaning of life – to get it right, in other words, do some homework – prove to yourselves if what you and your ministers claim, matches exactly what God says. If this innocent challenge cannot be carried out – is it any wonder that more in our ranks will flee, leaving far behind the idea that man was created and placed here on earth for a breathtaking purpose – there is a genuine eternal goal that awaits. But if we cannot convince the youngest among us of their glorious potential – our national heritage is lost, its only a matter of time before our ashes speak louder than words.

    I really am not interested in conversations with Glenn and an atheist. The last few days I turn on the show but turn it to something else because I am not interested in it. I don’t know what has happened but the shows has gotten “boring”.

    He’s an idiot if he had actually refuse to take the $100K to be baptized.
    To athiest like him baptism is inconsequential since they do not believe in it or that has any purpose.
    That would be same as if turning down $100K to take catholic sacrament

    I remember watching Penn and Teller at the MN ren fest in the 70’s …. and reading the comments below ….I feel bad for you people. why so much animosity? get a life guys and hug your girlfriend or boyfriend or cat or dog or something. calling people names solves nothing. For pete’s sake.

  • Neal Frazier

    Glenn should get Penn & Kirsten Powers on the same show…She was an athiest at one time too!!!

      There’s no evidence to support the supernatural imaginings of primitive men – never was and never will be. God, witches, demons, ghosts, spirits and all the rest of that stuff is nonsense. Funny how you folks who believe in the supernatural demand evidence for everything else before you decide if it’s true or not.

    When I think of Beck, this is all I see.

      It’s the vaporub he puts on his eyelids so he can cry on cue for these dumbass rubes.

    I spent all my money on drugs and had to sit next to Glenn Beck on the bus:

    Glenn willing to pay $100,000 to baptize Penn Jillette….No big deal, right?

    Then why did Glenn Beck make such a big deal that a liberal person gave the libertarian in the Virginia Governor race $10,000???? $100,000 is apparently no big deal, but $10,000 is a huge sum of money?

    Hypocrite

      Right, because funding a movie and rigging a US election are the same thing. Dope.

      Because Glenn Blech is full of horse shit.

    A woman named Mia Marie Pope has come forward who claims to have known Barry, as she knew him, when they were teenagers. She says he was a pathological liar even then, and much of his time was spent apparently prostituting himself with other men to acquire drugs.
