    yeah, PKM, but I didn't state that the religious right (or anybody) had sole claim to behaving self-righteously - - I merely gave them as one example of that type of behavior. Self-righteousness comes in all varieties, and yes, we all may act that way at times.

    The trouble with feeling self-righteous is that it tends to close one's mind to other viewpoints.

    I've had to bite my tongue pretty hard lately to not comment on some of the outlandish b.s. (beck ****) constantly flung around by some of my family members. Glenn Beck is by all accounts a false prophet, IMO, and that's putting it lightly. The dude no doubt has delusions of being some modern day savior. "Come follow me, I have seen the way". How does any Christian hear stuff like that and not get seriously creeped out?

    I always thought you would. Even entrepreneurs initially fear change, but they have a gift for turning that around.

    I think the right will rebound in a big way if they can move away from thoughts shared in this video.
    As a Mormon, I find this really offensive. He seems to act like a pastor or a wannabe prophet. Leave the prophesying to someone called by God. I'm sorry Bro. Beck, but you certainly are not called of God. In fact, quite the opposite really. If he really believes in the hierarchy and the revelation of the LDS Church, then he really needs to back off on his views. If Pres. Monson isn't condemning America then why the hell should Beck?

    For the good that many Mormons have done, ex charity work, and the pub that was given to the church through this past election (which... I believe was generally good), this man does the whole church a complete disservice.

    I remember it being preached in the MTC about locking your heart and how bad missionaries could leave a huge whole in their areas. Beck, creates far more holes in America. His "preaching" does nothing but damage to members and the LDS church not to mention the destruction to the mentality of many Americans (including the GOP).

    Of course, he probably doesn't give a damn... Money is his god.

    I wonder how many people, who would support Obama, don't vote because the know voting democratic on president doesn't make a difference.

    I think there are more than one reason people don't vote. Such as those who see them as basically the same thing, those simply uninterested and those who are a minority voting bloc in a state. Such as Dems in places like ID, UT, OK and W.V. and repubs in places like N.Y. , CA and CT.

    I think they should make you the face of the franchise instead of Glenn beck. It would be missionary work explosion!

    Which makes an argument for the popular vote over the electoral college system. Every vote really counts in the popular vote. Voting Obama in Utah is a wasted vote.

    I think you'd see more people voting if they felt like their vote counted towards the Presidential election.
