Is Glenn Beck a Christian?

As an atheist, I don't give a damn if Glenn Beck is a Christian or not. But I stumbled across this organization - Mormanism Research Ministry. This is a Christian "missionary" organization that is out to "save" (convert) Mormans to Christianity.

The above link takes you to a page that has a few questions Beck should answer concerning his Morman beliefs and how they stack up against conservative Christian beliefs.

Here are just a couple of the questions:
•You have asked professing Christians to join you in asking God to restore our land, yet your church officially declares that all professing Christians outside of the LDS Church are part of a "great apostasy." McConkie even went so far as to say the "church of the devil" (1 Nephi 14:10) included "modern Christianity in all its parts" (The Millennial Messiah: The Second Coming of the Son of Man, pp.54-55). Do you believe God hears the prayers of alleged apostates, especially those who are quite content to attend what your church calls the "church of the devil?"
I really like this one!
•While I applaud your efforts to expose socialism as an evil system, are you not aware that Joseph Smith not only instituted socialism via his "Law of Consecration" and "United Order," he claimed God ordained it (See D&C 104)? If you lived during the time of Joseph Smith, do you think you would have been as vocal about this socialistic system as you are about modern socialism?
