UCG and LCG Quoting Glenn Beck

So after seeing how PCG's Gerald Flurry and Robert Morley have quoted Glenn Beck in a previous post let us see if the other COGs have been listening to him as well?

UCG Quoting Glenn Beck

As it turns out Beck has only been quoted in UCG''s writings twice.

In 2008 Darris McNeely wrote a short article criticizing Beck for praising the novels of Stephanie Meyer. He objected that her novels contains "vampires and spiritism."

(Note that Beck's first name is here incorrectly spelled as "Glen.")
Last week I was watching Glen Beck’s popular news program on CNN. Glen is a conservative and engaging and articulate commentator. I enjoy his perspective and his enthusiasm. ... Both Beck and Dobson clearly agreed such violent games added nothing to the social character. Right on Glen. But what struck me was the next guest Beck interviewed and the praise he heaped on her. Next up was Stephanie Meyer, a popular author of a series of vampire books for teens. ... Meyer has been called the American version of J.K. Rowling. What struck me was Glen Beck’s fawning praise for Meyers books. How can you go from criticizing the state of American morality in one segment to praising the fascination for literary worrks about vampires and spiritism? (Darris McNeely, A Confused Glen Beck, May 18, 2008.)
In 2014 Dan Hoosier mentioned that Beck had promoted British Israelism on his program to his listeners. He mentions WorldNetDaily, a far right media outlet infamous for spreading the myth that President Obama was not born in the United States. Nevertheless UCG's leaders tend to trust that media outlet. (See: UCG's Reliance on WorldNetDaily.) One wonders why PCG did not bother to mention that.
More and more people are becoming aware of this profound and fundamental fact of history. Glenn Beck explained this subject quite well on August 8, 2013, on his TV program, The Blaze . ...
Joe Kovacs of WorldNetDaily published a very supportive report on August 29 with his article, “Glenn Beck: U.S. Identified in Bible.” His article began: “Radio and television host Glenn Beck is now going public with his belief the United States is among the famous “Lost 10 Tribes of Israel,” and America today is suffering calamities just as ancient Israel did due to its disobedience to the laws of God.” (Dan Hoosier, The 7 Reasons - no, 8 Reasons - America Became a Great Power, April 2, 2014.)

LCG Quoting Glenn Beck

Beck has been mentioned twice in LCG's online writings. And in the same way that only two of PCG's 1% chose to cite Beck it turns out that among LCG's 1% only one of them has quoted Beck, namely Wyatt Ciesielka,

In 2010 Ciesielka mentioned Beck as warning that America was facing severe economic problems.
Politicians such as Senator Gregg and political pundits like Glenn Beck are right to sound the alarm. But, their warnings are incomplete messages. It is sin that is the root of U.S. economic trouble – not Keynesian versus Austrian economics, or Republican versus Democrat versus Tea Party politics, or FOX News versus CNN News versus NPR analysts! What America really needs to understand and do is repent from breaking God's biblical laws! (Wyatt Ciesielka, QE2 and the Acceleration of America's Economic Demise, November 6, 2010.)
In 2015, four years after Beck lost his television program on Fox News Channel, Ciesielka mentioned him as evidence of peoples' fascination with conspiracy theories. It is too vague to be sure whether this reference is favorable or not.
Secret societies such as the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers, the Illuminati, the Burschenschaft, and Opus Dei, are favorite topics of talk radio, Internet sites, books and movies. From blockbuster movies such as "Enemy of the State" and "Angels and Demons" to "Doomsday 2012: End of Days," from talk radio hosts such as Michael Savage and Glenn Beck to Alex Jones, society is fascinated by conspiracy theories and the clandestine organizations supposedly manipulating the masses. (Wyatt Ciesielka, Satan's Secret Society and True Christianity, February 17, 2015.)
And so we see that the other COGs have also brought up Glenn Beck to their readers as well.

  1. Well then, LCG should certainly know that sin is at the root of their financial problems.

    And here we thought it was just bad management.
