Beck was in the news yesterday claiming little assistance from the State Department in helping the organization Nazarene Fund of which he is a board member. The NF site gives little information except that it claims to be about assisting Christian refugees in difficult countries. The three main leaders are Beck, another Mormon (at least a graduate of BYU), and an evangelical. The main thrust of the site is fund raising. The fund has no connection with The Church of the Nazarene.

Well I would guess the state department has better things to do than help them.

+a very big "agree."

Can you imagine the arrogance of presuming the State Department should be assisting in Beck's own pet project, especially given his lack of long-term commitment to anything?

Sounds like a good cause, I'm not an expert on these anti Christian issues. Beck recently had his first art exhibition in park city a couple of weeks ago, he'S selling oil paintings. he's a lot like former president bush and Churchill, politicians turned artists,

It just goes to show anyone can learn to paint, it's more a skill rather than a talent.

Well, I'm sure talent enters into it too.

Anyone can be a Michelangelo or a Durer or a Vermeer, right?

You have to look at Packer's art with your spiritual eyes if you want to appreciate it fully.

Beck and Churchill in the same breath in any comparison is absurd but even that is an improvement over comparisons I am seeing between Churchill and the former president. To paraphrase a favorite Churchill quote: "An empty taxi pulled up (at parliament) and you know who got out."

Thomas Kinkade. . .

Somewhere I read that he is a lot like Glen Beck.

Kincade is long dead but deeply mourned by the chocolate box artist guild.

Dead, yes, but his artistic legacy lives on in tourist gift shops worldwide.

Found a January article under the heading American Crime Journal that asks the question: Where have all the millions gone? It also indicates there is some question on the group's claims. Such as rescuing sex slaves from ISIS. Interesting that the byline is one Lynn Packer.

I agree that it is arrogant on the part of Beck to assume the Sate Department should immediately throw everything at an unknown entity such as Beck"s Nazarene Fund.

Packer--that's interesting.

Beck is such a gadfly that I don't know why anyone serious would want to work with him.

Conspiracy nutter. Too wacky for even Faux News. Adult convert to the cult and enthusiastic support of said. To call Beck an idiot would be insult to the garden variety morons out there. I'm surprised this clown still has an audience.

Beck is interested in one thing and one thing only, keeping himself fed and housed. And he has little talent for it.
