Don't Quote a Leader from the Past

Today's nuttery was brought to you by "The Glenn Beck Show.":

Before being helped back from the ledge by his obviously smarter producer, Glenn was criticizing Pres. Obama for quoting Supreme Court Cheif Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes.

Why you ask?
Apparently Holmes supported eugenics. Of course I don't remember Obama supporting that portion of Cheif Justice Holmes' beliefs but I guess if you don't support one portion of a persons beliefs you can't support any of them.

We could make a list of all those that Glenn Beck should stop quoting, but maybe we could skip right to the big one. Glenn should drop out of the Mormon Church. Unless of course he supports the actions and ideas of the early Mormon "Prophets."

"Had I anything to do with the negro , I would confine them by strict law to their own species" - Founder Joseph P. Smith

"If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so." - Bringham Young

" If there is one drop of negro blood in my children, as I have read to you, they receive the curse, There isn't any argument, therefore, as to intermarriage with the Negro, is there? Now we are generous with the Negro. We are willing that the Negro have the highest kind of education. I would be willing to let every Negro drive a Cadillac if they could afford it." - Mark E. Peterson - Church Leader

Of course, not all early Mormon church leaders were so anti-black:

"Darkies are wonderful people" - Joseph F. Smith 10 Prophet

------- EDIT 1 ----------------------
Apparently, Stu the producer didn't get to Glenn in time. Yesterday, (5/26) was when Mr. Beck started this whole join-Obama-to-Eugenics non-sense. See it here until they realize how stupid it was and take it down.
