Glenn Beck has declared Christians have “lost the war” on gay marriage and tolerance has won during a discussion with controversial pastor Mark Driscoll.
“When it comes to gay marriage, for example, I have gay friends, I have gay employees, I don’t really care. What you do is what you do. You work that out. That’s your life,” Beck said.
The conservative commentator believes that the debate was more about intolerant gay rights supporters pushing their views on Christians.
“If I am tolerant, say, ‘You do what you want to do,’ but I get to do what I do. And you can’t force me to say that my god says you can be married or not married. You can’t force me to do that, Beck said. “And there’s a tremendous opportunity, I think, for Christians, because they lost the war, they lost that.”
If Beck is going to avoid pushing his views on others, than he expects the same.
“The place you have to protect is the one that wins with twenty-somethings, which is tolerance. I’m not trying to shut you up. I’m not trying to do anything to you,” he said. “Don’t do it to me.”
