Glenn Beck a latter day Elmer Gantry.

America STILL doesn't know about Religious Ex Alcoholics ???

1. G.W.Bush Evangelical Christian.

2. Glenn Beck a "Mormon"

G.W. Bush started Christian Crusades in Iraq & Afghanistan.

Glenn Beck is another Christian Mormon revivalist for Jesus.

Why are Americans so gullible ??
