Is Beck a white Jeremiah Wright?

Columnist Rod Dreher warned his fellow conservatives to back away from Fox News host Glenn Beck. "Beck is a white Jeremiah Wright, a crazy-pants conspiracy theorist whose worldview is rooted in the paranoid teachings of a far-right Mormon political guru named W. Cleon Skousen," Dreher wrote. "Before signing up as a recruit in Beck's army, conservative Becketeers had better think long and hard about where their affable leader is taking them."
