Glenn Beck opened his television program last night by warning his audience that yesterday’s significant stock market decline was simply a foretaste of what we can expect to see when the massive global “correction” that he has been predicting for years finally hits.

“If we continue to follow progressive principles and, quite honestly, Common Core math,” Beck warned, “we will repeat the same mistakes we made in the 1930s and the 1940s and the world will follow with fascism, communism, war, and hunger. It’s going to happen, gang.”

“You and I have been made fun of relentlessly for advising our friends to prepare,” he continued. “Believe me, no one will be laughing when the chickens come home to roost … It is not a matter of if; it is truly a matter of when. Are you prepared? Do you have food on hand? Do you have cash on hand? Do you have ammunition and guns and God, most importantly?”

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
