Glenn Beck: I Left Fox News Because They Told Me to 'Stop Telling People to Pray'

Former Fox News host Glenn Beck told supporters at a Ted Cruz campaign event in South Carolina on Saturday that he left his comfortable job with the cable news channel because he was told by his superiors to stop telling people to pray.

Beck, who left Fox News in 2011 and now runs his own cable news channel called TheBlaze, revealed to audience members at a rally for the Texas senator at the Springmaid Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach that one of the reasons he left the premiere conservative cable network was because he was told to "stop talking about God."

"I was told, 'Stop telling people to pray.' I was told not to tell people to pray on their knees because there's a lot of people in the audience whose knees hurt and I make them feel bad," the 52-year-old Beck explained. "I was told, 'Stop praying because that takes God's focus off the important things like war.'"

"I was just like, 'Uh huh. Wow," Beck continued. "I thought I was gonna get this speech at CNN.'"
