    I think the writers might have more credibility if they actually addressed what Glenn said and didn’t put up straw men. I mean where on earth did Glenn say, even try to imply, that “Jesus was an inconsiderate cad” or that “Matthew 25 was actually written by Joseph Stalin”?

    It’s quite the opposite. He has been encouraging individuals to provide charity for one another. How can we have productive discussions in society if people are unwilling to be honest about what the others have to say? How can we progress anywhere if we create straw men about what one another has said and try to poison the well?

    I just find it difficult to accept people’s claims that someone is lying when they have to completely misrepresent what that person said in order to make their argument.

    Did you read my article? I addressed each of Beck’s claims, I hope in an honest way.
