Glenn Beck to Go Blind?

Fox News host Glenn Beck recently announced that he could go blind in a year.

Right at the middle of his keynote address last Saturday, in his “American Revival” tour, he told a crowd of 6,000 in Salt Lake City that he has been diagnosed recently with macular dystrophy.

In true Glenn Beck fashion, he still managed to put humor into his announcement saying that he wasn’t sure what “macular dystrophy” was.

Still, he injected a bit of humor in with the grim news. Beck said he wasn’t really sure what “macular dystrophy” entailed. “Is that that Jerry Lewis thing telethon that he does?” Beck said. “Because I should have given more.”

Kidding aside, he said a doctor told him he may or may not go blind in a year. For this, he said how his faith has been strengthened.

“I truly came to a place that is the greatest blessing,” Beck said. “Lord, if you need my eyes, they’re yours. They were yours the whole time anyway. Thank you for letting me see as long as I have. That’s a blessing.”
