On the Wednesday edition of “Countdown,” Keith Olbermann and his guest Faiz Shakir sounded off on Beck’s claim to hear from God. After Beck talked about his “trust in the Lord” and hoping the “Spirit” speaks to him during his upcoming Restoring Honor rally, Olbermann commented, “He thinks someone, … he said the Spirit and we’re assuming it’s the Almighty, is screaming at him, is he ok?”

Shakir, from ThinkProgress.org, answered: “Of course not. The guy is insane.”


I can only imagine the outrage if Olbermann or Shakir openly mocked Muslim or Jewish prayer.
