The Mission of Glenn Beck

A noted historian believes that Glenn Beck may have been drawn Mormonism because of his conservative beliefs and many of us have heard about Mr. Beck's affinity for The Five Thousand Year Leap, but Adam Reilly of the Boston Phoenix (reprinted in the Salt Lake City Weekly) has found a connecting, sometimes radical LDS thread through much of Glenn Beck's rhetoric.

His strong anti-communism views and even his oft-repeated "the Constitution is hanging by a thread" can be traced to the teachings of past Mormon leaders, including some who have been ex-communicated and to the religion's founder, Joseph Smith.

All together an interesting read and highly recommended.
