Glenn Beck believes that God brought about the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia in order to encourage Americans to vote for Ted Cruz.
On Tuesday, the conservative radio host and Cruz supporter assumed the voice of God to explain to listeners how Scalia’s death was a divine wake up call for conservatives.
“I couldn’t help, but wonder, why? Why now? Why did you have to take Antonin now?” Beck’s co-host Pat Gray asked on the broadcast.
But CNN’s headline and story are deceptive. What Beck actually said was that if God had to take Scalia, at least the timing is showing everyone the importance of the Supreme Court in the election. It’s never a good idea to start postulating on God’s thought which we can’t know, but he didn’t actually say what CNN claims.
