On this day, I could not be more proud of being an Native Oregonian, also having lived in Portland for more than a decade.
Glenn Beck Names Portland the Worst City in AmericaAugust 14, 2015 at 9:49 am #13042
I think the best thing for Beck fans is to just move. Away.

But they simply won’t take the hint. Perhaps hearing it from one of their overlords will help to get things going.August 14, 2015 at 10:05 am #13044
They will probably just maximize their west side enclaves and call it good.
For some reason, they always crave feeling the rage, and having “the enemy and the sin” all around should do the trick nicely.August 14, 2015 at 2:40 pm #13051Alfredo_TParticipant
I was about to say that I’m waiting for the lightning bolts, but now I see that a thunderstorm is heading this way! :-0August 14, 2015 at 6:10 pm #13056Listener_PeteParticipant
Did KEX cancel him?August 14, 2015 at 6:19 pm #13057paulwalkerParticipant
Glenn is still on the KEX website, so my guess is no.
Interesting to note that Glenn is a native Washingtonian, (I believe born in Snohomish Co., then moving to Skagit Co., perhaps that is why Portland and SF surpassed Seattle in his worst rankings).August 14, 2015 at 9:13 pm #13063LangstonParticipant
How ironic. All these years I have been avoiding Beck like the plague.August 15, 2015 at 12:30 pm #13065Alfredo_TParticipant
Some years ago, I recall studies showing Oregon and Washington as the “least churched” states in the country. Thus, by Beck’s logic, it is best to stay away from these two states altogether.
What I find a bit ironic is that in the past, I have heard viewpoints from Evangelicals that “unchurched” places are the best because they present more opportunities to spread the Word. I think that there is also an implicit sentiment that such places fulfill the paradigm that true believers are a persecuted people.August 15, 2015 at 3:57 pm #13069
PDX represents raw fields chock full of potential believers.
The entire nation is one of these, and the result is a ton of religion.
And this is driving endless Christian nation claims too. So long as there is no State religion, there will be those who want to establish it.
They can’t just accept it either. The other competing religion might get it done and where would they be?August 15, 2015 at 5:13 pm #13070AmusParticipant
Where would they be?
That’s where!August 17, 2015 at 7:20 am #13116
The Snoregonian had a piece this last weekend that I think tells a lot of the story for those of us who love and cherish living here.
