Glenn Beck on Gay Wedding Cake Case: "You're Going to Have to Kill Me"
Talk-show host Glenn Beck has Colorado on the brain.
Shortly after announcing his list of the fifteen cities to avoid like the plague, which included Denver, Beck and his buddies on his website, The Blaze, weighed in on the Colorado Court of Appeals ruling in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case. The court found that the shop had discriminated against a gay couple, Charlie Craig and David Mullins, by declining to bake a cake for their wedding. Owner Jack Phillips said his refusal was based on his religious beliefs.
The segment of the show on this topic, on view below, begins with Beck reading a brief summary of the finding before asking, in his most exasperated fashion, "What?"
Then, after providing more background on the situation (at one point, he refers to Mullins as Daniel, not David), he says, "I got news for you. To the death. To the death. You can do anything to me.... If it goes against my religious beliefs, you're going to have to kill me."
For more of Beck's take, including his assertion that "if this is allowed to stand, every bit of your Constitutional right is gone," check out the aforementioned video.Send your story tips to the author, Michael Roberts.
