Following Donald Trump’s victory in the South Carolina GOP primary, talk radio host Glenn Beck urged his Facebook followers to join him and his family “in a fast for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), our country and the Nevada caucus.”
“I would like to ask you to join me and my family Monday in a fast for Ted Cruz, our country and the Nevada caucus,” Beck wrote on his Facebook page after the South Carolina election results showed a decisive double-digit victory for Trump, whose candidacy Beck has been staunchly opposed to.
Later Beck trashed Evangelical voters after Trump won over Evangelicals in every South Carolina county.
Here is what Glenn posted on his timeline:
So I had to look up the definition of what Evangelical means tonight because it is counter intuitive when I hear that Evangelicals support a fake/pretend Christian like Donald Trump. Evangelical: Of relating to, or being in agreement with the Christian gospel especially as it is presented in the four Gospels. Emphasizing salvation by faith in the atoning death of Jesus Christ through personal conversion, the authority of Scripture, and the importance of preaching as contrasted with ritual. Glad I found the definition because I was beginning to think that Evangelical meant: Hypocrite, liar, deceiver and take it or leave it believer in God. I am so Glad I am a devoted Christian adhering to God’s laws and not an Evangelical. Now I know why atheists and agnostics think so poorly of Evangelicals. Please just call me a Christian and follower of Christ from here on out. And to my friends who call themselves Evangelicals that didn’t drink the Trump Kool Aid, I strongly recommend you stay as far away from the title Evangelical as you can. God Bless everyone and God Bless the United States of America.
