'The View' goes off on Glenn Beck's 'message being sent' by God [Video] [Poll]

Glenn Beck and that message from God Glenn Beck had his own little radio earthquake Monday talking about God and current events including Japan, eliciting a tsunami-style TV response Tuesday from the women who host "The View."

"If you read the news, it's like reading the Book of Revelation," Beck said Monday. However, looking solely at the tender, loving relationship between Beck and "The View," parts of this read more like the Book of Business as Usual.

Beck didn't specifically say God was causing earthquakes — but he said he's "not not saying that either." The radio and TV host said he pretty much leaves the will of God up to, you know, God -- as did Sherri Shepherd on Tuesday, bless her heart. But he did say there was a message in the world's recent chaos.

"What God does is God's business, I have no idea. But I'll tell you this — whether you call it Gaia or whether you call it Jesus, there's a message being sent. And that is, 'Hey, you know that stuff we're doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it. I'm just sayin'."

Now, according to Whoopi Goldberg, Beck said God's message was that people should follow the Ten  Commandments or something. After asking about the little-known "Thou shalt not build reactors by the water" commandment — shh, nobody mention San OnofreJoy Behar chimed in with "How about 'Thou shalt not advance your career on the back of the Japanese people right now?" all the while advancing her career on the back of Glenn Beck's invoking the situation faced by the Japanese people.

Elizabeth Hasselbeck was part of the conversation as well, but except for Behar sniffing around whether she could accuse her cohost of hearing voices, nobody was very mean to her for a change. (See video the whole discussion below, below the poll.)

On his radio show Beck did make some apocalyptic hay Monday with recent headline news — listen to the audio for yourself here — including the ominous fact that while he was on vacation, "A tidal wave traveled from Japan to the Golden Gate Bridge in less time than it takes you to fly from Japan to the Golden Gate Bridge."

This prompted us to flip back through our recollection of wave dynamics and pause briefly on the page in our mental book that said, essentially, "Laws of physics make some tsunamis move really fast." We assume the laws of physics didn't bother to clock themselves against the speed of a modern jumbo jet.

Beck also on Monday discussed rumors that he might be at his own end of days at Fox News — then on Tuesday he took time to note that people might do well to emulate the nonlooting, yes-working-with-one-another behavior he's seen out of Japan during this disaster.

And to think! In the Ministry's limited world view, we consider the price Justin Bieber's hair drew on EBay was pretty much a sign of the apocalypse.

v.j. trujillo: First off, no one cares about your goofball attempts to play amateur theologian. Trying to figure out 'God's position visa-vis the Japan tragedy' is exactly what makes Beck an idiot and a kook. Do you really want to be like him? Also, you need to go back and watch that one episode of the Chapelle show when he talks about how mad white people are gonna be when they find out what "skeet, skeet, skeet" means... Apparently there's at least one Hispanic out there due to for some embarrassment as well.

Joy Behar is the servant of the devil with 7 tongues.

Glenn Beck doesn't even know the Ten Commandments. The only voices he hears are the ones in his own crazed head along with that never ending tape he keeps running by his bed

Joy is also boosting her ratings in her talk show, The View through all the talk of Glenn Beck whom she dislikes alot? I think so!!! Is that the pot calling the kettle black?

I rarely agree with the view. I don't watch them or listen to Glenn Beck. However in Matthew 24, Jesus warns his Disciples, that there would be wars and rumors of wars, earthqukes and famines in various places, before the end would come, they are the "beginning of birth pangs" Many things will happen. Earthqukes, in my opinion are not caused by God, but are a result of the Eath's crust moving around. He, as the all powerful one, could cause them, but I think that if they were there would be a message somewhere to tell us why.
The people behind familyradio.com believe that the end of the world is may 21, 2011. They think they have calculated the days and interpreted the Bible to know when.

Why are they even discussing this????

I had the unfortunate opportunity to see this show of The View while in a hospital waiting room. After watching the show, I watched the Glenn Beck show to which The View referred. The completely misrepresented his position. Just because these ladies are on TV does not make their opinions correct. In this case they completely misrepresented his position and took his comments out of context and even misquoted what he said. Unfortunately, the vast majority of The View audience members will not take the time to see for themselves what Glenn Beck said. I agree with some of what Glen Beck says and disagree about other things he says. In this case The View was wrong but they fail to realize this and would never admit to it. Go back and see for yourself. Compare what they say with what Glen Beck said. Very different words. This is sad that the ladies on The View are not criticized for misrepresenting his view. This is not the first time that these hosts have spouted, incorrectly reporting information to the audience. Shame on them for pushing THEIR agenda!!

And the word of the day is... Balderdash.

People get deep because its the easiest way to overlook the simple. Truth.
