Glenn Beck really hated "Noah," which means it actually might be worth seeing, if only for the special effects and rock people.

Poor Glenn Beck. Even the Bible movies don't resonate with him. I guess it's going to take someone like Dinesh D'Souza to write a script he'll like. At any rate, he just wasn't all that into this weekend's premiere of "Noah." Because rock people.


In particular, he was put off by the "giant rock people" that helped Noah with his tasks in the movie, who were supposed to represent the Nephilim (giant offspring of angles [sic]and human females mentioned in Genesis 6).

Beck, who just last year put on a giant stage production centered around an anthropomorphic moon, played by Beck himself, telling the story of America, found these "giant rock people" to be just too absurd and far-fetched."Rock people!" Beck said in disbelief, adding that he was sure that critics of religion like Bill Maher would point out that it seems odd to object to "rock people" if one is willing to accept the existence of a "sky God," but this is different."Yeah, but I don't believe in rock people, okay? I have a hard time with that one," Beck declared.

On top of that, the movie was bad because "it treats a prophet of God like a lunatic":

This, more than anything else Beck has uttered, proves he is a cynical SOB who is entirely clueless about what is, and what isn't, in the Bible. If he thinks prophets were hailed like heroes, he hasn't bothered to read much of it. This is a guy who thinks the Book of Mormon is prophetic, but hasn't bothered to crack open the Old Testament much.

I don't really care if he liked the movie or not, but it does bother me that he plays the religious type to gather in the willing and ignorant masses. He's a huckster, and that's about all.
