Beck: New 'Exodus' Movie Makes Moses 'Arrogant' Before Turning Him Into a 'Terrorist

Glenn Beck saw "Exodus: Gods and Kings" over the weekend, and said on his radio program Monday that it was even worse than "Noah," which he nicknamed "The Babylonian Chainsaw Massacre."

"There were a couple things I didn't agree with. Like for instance, Moses doesn't believe in God," Beck began on his radio program. "He's like, 'I'm not going to be lectured by you.'"

"And God is [an] 11-year-old kid who I think is more like a Buddhist monk, because he's constantly making tea," Beck added. "I don't know why he's making tea."

Beck also said the pharaoh was far more sympathetic than Moses, who was "just arrogant and an ass, and then becomes a terrorist."

"This is the Hollywood translation [of the Bible]," Beck said. "[Moses] doesn't want to rely on God anymore. He doesn't throw the staff down. He didn't really do any of that. He instead just starts to train an army and then starts setting the granaries on fire."

"Committing acts of terrorism, which is all through Exodus, acts of terror," Beck's co-host Pat Gray added. "It's a subheading -- 'Exodus: Acts of Terror.'"

Beck said he doesn't object to the miracles being explainable, since "God is the greatest scientist, so there could be a scientific explanation" for the miracles. But the way they were explained in "Exodus," he said, was laughable.

"The [water] turning into blood -- it's because these gigantic, huge crocodiles come out into the Nile," Beck said. "And they eat people on a boat. And then it's all blood."

"So that made the entire Nile river go red?" co-host Stu Burguiere asked.

"Yes," Beck said with mock severity. "Don't make fun of that."

Beck said the movie isn't the worst movie he's ever seen, but it is one of the most "dangerous."

"The problem is, your kids will see this on Netflix," Beck said. "And this will be the story of Moses that will embed in their heads. I don't think it's the worst movie I've seen. I think it's one of the more dangerous movies I've seen, religiously speaking, because it's all screwed up."

"This is a very subversive movie for religion," Beck continued. "If you're holding out hope that this was going to be good, it's not. Don't give them any money. Don't rent it on Netflix. Don't do anything. Avoid this one literally like the plague that it is."

Beck wondered who the Hollywood executives involved in the making of the film were trying to appeal to.

"As a religious person ... I'm deeply offended," Beck said. "That you are taking a prophet of the Lord, one of the most humble men of all time, and you're making him an Al Qaeda member -- it makes absolutely no sense."

While people of faith have long asked Hollywood to make more faith-based movies, Beck said "they're doing more damage to religion by doing these movies" than by ignoring them.

"It cannot be a coincidence that you guys said the exact same thing about 'Noah,'" Burguiere speculated. "It was the same thing. He's not likable. He wants to kill his family."

"They slapped Moses in the face," Beck agreed. "They slapped religion and people of faith in the face. If you're going to say, 'I'm going make a movie that appeals to everybody,' you at least make the main character sympathetic. He's not sympathetic, nor was Noah. They were both killers. They were both psychotic. ... It's insane. It's hostile. It's really hostile."
