Soon after, on his radio show, Beck added, “By the way, I just thought I would put this out there, and what you do with it is your own business. But, this weekend, I put out a tweet on Twitter that September 28th is the Day of Atonement for the Jewish faith, and I thought it would be a good day for all of us to fast and pray, you know. And I got this idea from Thomas Jefferson. After they put together the Continental Congress, the first thing they did was put together a day — a national day of fast and prayer, and I thought the Day of Atonement would be a good day to do it.”
Does he really not know that Yom Kippur falls on different days in different years?
Update. It really does sound to me like he’s proposing making this an annual thing. I’m not going to apologize for criticizing that. Yes, I know it is on September 28 this year.
