Glenn Beck & 'The View' Trade Barbs in Biblical Debate

"We need faith in something and adherence to universal principles."

On their Tuesday show, the women of ABC's "The View" discussed Glenn Beck's recent comments that the earthquake in Japan may be a message from God.

Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, two of the show's most outspoken hosts, criticized Beck, who said on his Monday show that the the world's events may be a "message" sent from God. The message, he said, was "'hey, you know that stuff we're doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.'"

"Which commandment does he want us to follow?" Behar said. "Thou shalt not build a reactor near the water?"

"If this is because we're misbehaving and God is pissed, I would check the mirror, Glenn," Goldberg responded.

"How about 'thou shalt not advance your career on the back of the Japanese people right now?'" Behar added.

Taking to his radio show the next day, Beck reiterated that people should work to turn back to faith and God. “Man’s actions don’t control the planet’s earthquakes. But man’s actions do control the earthquakes that are happening in our society," he said.
