It was bad enough that Glenn Beck, who Martin Luther King Jr. would not be supportive of, decided to sully the memory of the great Civil Rights leader's famous "I Have a Dream Speech." It was bad enough that someone who feeds off of people's fears and hatred can draw over 300,000 people in modern day America. As an American, it was a dark day in WashingtonDC yesterday but as a Christian, it was even worse.

Enough people will weigh in from the perspective of America on the rally yesterday. I am responding as a Christian. During the myriad of carefully crafted quotes designed to inspire and sound self-righteous, Beck let this whopper slip through:

"people aren't recognizing [Obama's] version of Christianity."

Excuse me? Now, I will not defend the Christian fruit of the President. It is lacking just as much as the previous occupant of the White House. I am not naive enough to think that the politics of man will not corrupt the best of Christian intentions. But exactly who is Glenn Beck to be critical of someone else's Christianity? Beck throws the name of Christ around enough but never truly discusses the fact that he is actually a Mormon.
