Glenn Beck, Awwwwwww Nooooooooo!

I've given up listening to Glenn Beck because there's no one more anti-Catholic than an ex-Catholic (a "raised-Catholic," if you will). Most recently he declared that the Church kept the mass in Latin so no one would understand it. Brilliant. Because that's why St. Jerome translated it into Latin in the first place.
The fact is, Glenn Beck is a Mormon. For some reason, I can take anti-Catholicism from Protestants and it hurts much less than someone who was gullible enough to fall for Mormonism. When your religion isn't even 200 years old, it stings far more. When your religion can easily be disproven with a science and/or history textbook, it stings far more. Protestants at least use the Bible to try to disprove Catholic teachings. Mormons don't use the Bible or even the Book of Mormon for that matter. They're people who believe Joseph Smith's church is teaching truth almost 200 years going strong, but Jesus' Church couldn't even pass the 100 year mark despite His assurance that "the gates of hell will not prevail against it".
I don't hate Glenn Beck, but I can't listen to him anymore. You're free to believe whatever you want in this country, but if your church leader dispensed with divine revelation so your territory could become a state, you might want to rethink it.
Mormonism: a Poor Alternative to Thinking.
