Crazy Televangelist: Glee Comes From “The Realm Of Darkness And Deception”

A clueless televangelist named James Robison is convinced that Glee is the work of the devil. It is glamorizing homosexual themes! He’s right: doesn’t it look awesome to get picked on constantly as a gay high-school student living in the middle of Ohio?

Glenn Beck sanctioned Robison’s crazy-talk for a segment on his TV program. Beck and Robison wish we could use the powers of Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy for good, not for evil.

“You made a tremendous comment earlier in the week, you talked about Glee,” said Robison. “You talked about the incredible talent; the talent is so staggeringly great and you said, ‘Why can’t we take great talent and have a great message?’ ”

The story of uncool theater-and-dance kids who band together against bullying is a terrible message, indeed.

Robinson continued:

You see, the enemy—and you talked about it in “The Overton Window”- the principalities and powers in the realm of darkness and deception know how to take that which is highly effective and use it to their ends to deceive and really to bring us down, away from God, away from truth. They do it highly effectively, they’re committed to it.

If you can take some of this talent, just like you alluded to—and that needs to happen, you need to be able to do it and people who the ability and have the resources need to help to exactly what Hollywood has refused to learn: the greatest gross-producing movies are family-friendly. And yet they keep putting out this junk because there is a power-force that says “you’ve got to get this message out.” And we can stop it by bringing forth truth.

Ah yes, the good old gay power-force. Evil homosexual sorceress Ryan Murphy conjured it from a mixture of rainbows, unicorn tears and frothy mix, and it compels us.

    but it is the work of the devil!

  • ChattyKathy

    I agree, but for completely different reasons…

  • Marie Cohn

    Well, he IS right–about little Miss Evil, Miss Sarfati.

  • Triple S

    The only thing that’s evil about Glee is that almost none of the cast can actually sing! When you listen to them on the show, they literally sound like singing computers! Their voices are so digitised, it can only be explained that they can’t sing and they need a computer to fill the space. Which is quite large

  • Mike UK

    @Triple S: the wrath of all gleeks will be on you! lol

  • Gregoire

    Let him waste his breath. We’re already onto ‘Smash’ anyway. Just wait until he gets a load of that one!

  • Elmwoodmac

    For once I sort of agree with a thumper but in a very different I hate Glee kind of way.

  • sam

    The greatest earners in Hollywood are family friendly?

    Bahahahaha… no… they’re not

  • Steve

    @sam: True. The only successful family-friendly movies have usually been Disney movies, but you know, Disney supports Gay Day – which is apparently evil and deceptive.

  • Jim

    They hate the show because it has gay characters, not gay caricatures. They are real human beings, not a cautionary Aesop against the so-called “dangers” of homosexuality. The kind of portrayal of LGBT persons that idiots like this guy and Beck fear most is well-adjusted. I have not watched the show much, but it seems that Glee typifies family-friendly television. There’s a strong message of tolerance on the show, which the “family values” types consider to be dangerous, which is rather telling.

  • MikeE

    @Triple S: actually, you are quite wrong about this. the voices aren’t “digitized”. There are a few of the cast members with weaker singing voices, but nothing is done to boost their voices on the show. They actually sang live at the White house, and sounded like they do on the show. and those who CAN sing, actually have awesome voices.

    if you actually want to hear voices that have been passed through filters and auto-tune and every other possible audio effect, listen to ANY pop singer on the billboards these days. NONE of them can actually sing.

    and no, I’m not a gleek. but I am a professional musician.

  • Choir nerd

    I always disliked Kurt’s character. (Dare I say caricature?) Can’t we have a gay kid who doesn’t have a purse falling out of his mouth, or isn’t a huge closet case like the other fellow? You know, just a normal, average-acting kid who just happens to be gay? I’d be a bigger fan if I could relate to the gay kids a little more. But at least, thank heavens, they portray gay kids. OK, end rant.

  • jason

    How about Glee comes from the realm of poor writing and lame acting?

  • rick

    Glee is absolutely fake. In no reality do the really obese girls get the cute guys. On Glee, it happens regularly. Sorry, but in high school, that just never, ever happens.


  • CBRad

    Well…Glee IS evil. I had to sit through it once and thought I was in hell.

  • Gay Bacon

    my fortune teller La Lafayette told me thee EXACT. SAME. THING!

  • Lefty

    @rick: It’s a musical, not a docu-bleedin-mentary!!!!

  • hudson

    @Choir nerd: try watching Shameless. The gay kid there is fantastic- a tough street smart kid. His gayness isn’t his only dimension.

  • Mitch

    I expected to hear this guy rant and rave about how bad Glee is, but he said the talent was “staggering” and “brilliant.” Maybe you’re reading too much into this? A little extra sensitive are we?
