    I THOUGHT Glenn Beck was going to be a welcome addition to Fox News...but I think he will wear out his welcome because of his "over the top" style. His schtick is already wearing thin with me

    Mormon belief is different enough from orthodox Christianity that it really is in a class other than Christianity, it's not the same.Beck either doesn't have a clue what the basic tenets of Christianity are or doesn't care. Or just knows that a statement like this will get a whole lot of attention.

    Deuteronomy 15 7 If there is a poor man among your brothers in any of the towns of the land that the LORD your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother. 8 Rather be openhanded and freely lend him whatever he needs. 9 Be careful not to harbor this wicked thought: "The seventh year, the year for canceling debts, is near," so that you do not show ill will toward your needy brother and give him nothing. He may then appeal to the LORD against you, and you will be found guilty of sin. 10 Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. 11 There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.
    Or as summarized by Christ himself: John 12
    8For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me

    I am not a very religious man myself, but I truly enjoy watching, reading, hearing and listening to the godless discuss god and religion.

    Hey Bullock, you speak of mormonism like you truely understand it, so what exactly is it that takes mormonism out of Christianity and into a class all its own. I have a great understanding, and don't see it? So if you can spread some of your understanding, I would find it very interesting. Thanks

    Short story is plurality of gods, Jesus propitiation in garden rather than on the cross, goddess mother, becoming gods, keeping the commandments to be forgiven ...dig in: http://www.carm.org/1830-book-of-mormon. This is about as simplistic as you can get, if you want to discuss theology more in depth send me an IM and I would happy to get into more detail.

I'm a fair-weather Catholic at best, so my hackles don't go up too much.
    Would you do me a favor and define Christian for me? Since you are one I figure you must be able to tell me what that means. I want to argue a point, but what usually happens is when two people use one word and have two different definitions of said word they wind up talking past each other.
