He is a funny animated guy with lot of spit throwing and giggles. I knew instantly he would be a big hit with all the mid western rural American stay at home moms.
Beck is quite an intellectual and has penned two books so far. The Real America: Messages From the Heart and the Heartland and An Inconvenient Book.Â The latter was listed in the New York Times bestseller list for a week. He is also the founder and editor of Fusion, a magazine of conservative political perspective like him.
To commemorate the fifth anniversary of September 11 the magazine had featured a drawing of Beck standing in front of World Trade Centerâ€™s twin towers.

Personal Life, Religion, Church & Mormons
Glenn Beck grew up in Mount Vernon, a small town hundred miles from Seattle in Washington. He was born on February 10, 1964. He is a graduate of Sehome High School in Bellingham, Washington. By then he had already started working on talk shows as a part time job. I have heard but cannot confirm that Glenn suffers from ADHD so his producers try to keep his show fast paced.
He had a disastrous past life. His personal life is pitted with tragedies such as his motherâ€™s suicide, one of his brothers-in-law committed suicide, and a sibling reportedly had a fatal heart attack. He took alcohol and during these struggles with life his first wife divorced him.
Beck remarried and has four children from his wife, Tania. From his first marriage he has two teenage daughters, Hannah and Mary who is suffering from cerebral palsy. With his second wife he has two children, Raphe adopted in 2004 and Cheyenne born in 2006.
Is Glenn Beck a Mormon
Perhaps this answers your question to what religion is Glenn Beck. Beck is a member of the Mormon Church and is probably one of the most influential Mormons in the media today. He converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), which teaches against the consumption of alcohol, to get married to his present wife. He believes that the Mormon Church has impacted his family, his career and his life overall. He also acknowledges Godâ€™s hand in helping him meet his wife, Tania, and in their familyâ€™s spiritual quest for faith and religion.
Glenn Beck is A Buffoon
Glenn is a good man but he is a buffoon. He is riding on the wave of fear and is trying to exploit and capitalize on it. But still he is not a hate monger in the league of Sean Hannity. The other day I saw him on Bill O Rielly where he got ripped apart and his whole premise was shattered by Bill. Glenn made a point of Obama’s administration take the liberty of Americans by directly controlling the monetary policy. To which Bill replied that monetary policy has always been under the government for all time.
All in all, I am happy that this guy is so successful but don’t ever take anything he says at face value. He is just an amiable entertainer.
One of the best books that I have read from Glenn Beck and which is an absolute delight, Check it out!
