Glenn Beck Calls Thomas Paine the Glenn Beck of Revolutionary America

this isn’t the first time this clown has compared
himself to Thomas Paine, I doubt if he’s even read any
of Thomas Paine’s works, most of which would ridicule
every thing Beck stands for.

I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
- Thomas Paine
Care to still believe that Mr. Paine is like yourself, Glenn Beck. After all, you are the one who keeps assuming that the USA is a Christian nation, founded on Christian principles. In fact, another Founding Father you mentioned, Thomas Jefferson, wrote a book basically arguing for the de-mystification of Christ.
Let’s face it Glenn, the French Revolution kind of had some negative repercussions throughout continental Europe, not just France. There is no need to say how great the French Revolution was for France. That is, if you believe that it was overall better for the nation of France to go from Louis the XVI and Marie Antionette to an egotistical genocidal maniac Napoleon Bonaparte.
