Glenn Beck: "You are not a fan of mine if you hate people because they're gay"

During a discussion Monday about Russia’s anti-gay laws, Glenn Beck rather strongly made it clear that he has no interest in being friends with people who hate gays just on the virtue of their homosexuality, or, for that matter, anyone who hates anyone based on personality traits like sexuality and political beliefs. He said anyone who thinks that way is “not a fan of mine” and no better than people who don’t want to be friends with, say, handicapped people.

Beck called Russia “fascist” because of the anti-gay laws that have gotten such public attention ahead of the Sochi Olympics, and said rather strongly that anyone who hates gay people is not a real fan of his.
