WATCH: Glenn delivers message of unity and love at Faith and Freedom Conference

Watch the full speech via C-Span HERE

During his visit to Washington, D.C. on Friday, Glenn spoke to the Faith and Freedom Coalition and called for people of faith to unify and stand together. And while many in the mainstream media are seeing this as a message for religious conservatives to unite behind Mitt Romney (who was not mentioned), the content of the speech was much more in line with what Glenn has been saying for close to a year: We need to unite on common values, principles, and content of character rather than letting our differences divide us. The message was not unlike the one he delivered at Restoring Courage and Restoring Honor, in that it focused on unity, love, and faith changing the world rather than politics and elections.

“I will leave a church that tells me who to vote for – but a church that tells me these are our values and we stand for these values, we stand for decency, we stand for compassion and the best way to lift people up is not to take it from someone else but to help them and encourage them,” Glenn said.

CBS News reports, “(Glenn Beck) said Christians must put their differences aside and unite ‘on the things we can unite on.’”

Glenn also said that people of faith could no longer just stand against people or ideas, but must they needed to stand up “for something much, much bigger.” Fans will recognize that this message echoes his call for people to “commit” and that you cannot just be against a person or an idea, you must commit to being part of something bigger – a movement, a faith, and a code of character and personal responsibility.

Sadly, many are focusing on comments that Glenn made regarding the hit musical show “Glee”, which Glenn has praised for its production values but criticized for its message, sexual content, and objectification of high school students – all in a show aimed at teenagers. During the speech, Glenn claimed to be working on new projects that would push back against shows like Glee and flood the culture with content of such high quality that the left won’t even realize how the message would be one of faith and freedom – ideas ignored in most mainstream culture.

    I agree with Beck on pretty much everything but zionism. Zionism is evil.

    Thank you Glenn.  Yes. One person. Us. Yes, Christ.  But we are the foot soldiers.  Right now it requires our own efforts to turn our country from darkness to light.  I spoke to my son this evening.  He is dealing with issues – and I listened.  You know, at any given time we are faced with individual issues.  Things that require our attention. That require our energies.  We can turn to God but ultimately, we make the move.  I have dedicated my life to making a difference politically and in the direction our country takes.  I have also dedicated my time to be there for my son.  If nothing else, we need to leave a legacy of having tried.  Of standing up for what we believe. Of taking action.

    That is because most of our “politics” are based on Lies rather than Truth.  With Truth gutted from politics it is not so hard to understand why politics go astray.

    Kevin – you must not listen or watch very often.  Glenn says “God is the Answer” ALL the time.  Turn to God & Prayer.  Listen with Faith.  Act in Love as Christ did.  Yes, Kevin: – Christ, God, Prayer & Faith is what will save this nation and this world.

    Glenn “peddles” neither.  Glenn provides thoroughly researched information, differing view points, and requests that you DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.  Be open to ideas, be informed and make informed decisions – especially when it relates to politics where they are sooo many lies AND what happens in politics – local, national & global has significant effects on everything in our lives.  The more you learn, the more you will see how much politics impacts everything.

    I will respectfully disagree with you comment that doesn’t peddle, after all he is at a Faith conference.  I do do my own research, I read articles and opinions from all sides and countries.  I while feel that Mr. Beck is genuine in his belief, a dedication to his view/cause, I just feel that he does a little to much fear mongering and pandering to typically Christain Conservatives, which doesn’t help the dialog that is needed in this country or the world for that matter, to move us past the bickering and on to some progress.  Faith and politics should never ever cross or meet, they’ll just pollute each other.

    And that truth is????

    We definitely need to expand the dialog with all who desire to open-mindedly discuss – whatever the subject matter it.  As far as faith and politics never crossing – Politics (the State) should never influence religion (faith).  But faith was never supposed to be banished from the discussion of government.  Devine intervention through faith and prayer is what brought this Country into existence.  We must honor that intervention as we truly require it again now to save the Republic from it’s politicians.

    The truth is that many among us have lost faith and honor.  All Mr. Beck is saying is that we have to regain honor and truth in our society. Christians have been entirely too tolerant of the intolerable.

    So it’s a one way street?  There is no church of America and it should remain that way.  Personal faith is one thing, pushing though beliefs as politics, scares me to the core…….  I grant you Religious freedom was one of the reasons to break away from the British Monarchy, but the founding father were very cautious as to scripture in politics.

    But yes, more expanded two way dialog without name calling is what this country need, no spin, no soundbites, no bloat media ego’s.

    If you mean Faith in human beings, faith in this country with Honour and respect to all citizens I couldn’t agree with you more.  We are to caught up in our reality show existence, and have forgot our sense of community and family.  I do believe that religion should have no part in rebuilding this country.  Faith and belief is a personal thing that should be shared with your family and friends, but kept well away from the great dialog of politics in America, for its own sake.  When countries get involved pushing religion wars start.

    When countries get involved pushing religion, wars start?  No they DON’T.  When countries get involved pushing POLITICS, wars start.  Religion, on the other hand, can actually PREVENT such wars.

    of course religion plays no part in wars. hmmmm lets start with the Crusades, The 30 yr war, or how about Israel and Palistine, Pakistan and India, the Sikh pogroms, Ethopia and Somalia, N. Ireland, Kosovo.

    Prevented conflict……… can’t think of any… 

  • Anonymous

    Seriously? News flash, son. Religion played the key role in ONLY one of the wars you mentioned there, and that would be the Crusaded, which came to an end about 700 years ago. The other wars you mention, religion wasn’t even a major role in. Power and politics were. Power and politics were THE major reason for the 30 years war. Albeit religion played a bigger part in that war than it did in the other wars you mention, but it certainly wasn’t THE driving reason. Power and politics were THE major reason for Pakistan and India. Power and politics were THE major reason for Ethiopia and Somalia. Power and politics were THE major reason for Northern Ireland. And Kosovo? Really? Religion didn’t even play that big a role in the Kosovo conflict. CULTURE did. Differences in CULTURE, NOT religion, is the key role in that conflict. Guess I can give you Israel and Palestine, though, but that is more because of Islamic POLITICS than anything else, lol, so I’ll give you just half of that.

    Boy, not only did you prove here how much of an imbecile you are, but you also proved that you do NOT grasp history whatsoever, lol. The last war truly based on religion were the Crusades, and they ended nearly 700 years ago. EVERY SINGLE WAR since has been based mostly on politics and power grabs by those in power. I’ll name a few for you. The American Revolutionary war. No religious reason. The French Revolutionary war. No religious reason. The Russian Civil War. No religious reason. The Chinese Civil War. No religious reason. The American Civil War. No religious reason. World War 1. No religious reason. World War II. No religious reason. All but one or two of the wars you mentioned. No religious reason. Hundred Years War. No religious reason. On, and on, and on. You know why those wars were fought? They were fought for freedom, politics, and power grabs. They were fought over differences of POLITICAL opinions, NOT religious ones, imbecile. In fact, most of the 30 years war was fought because many European leaders wanted to change the balance of power in Europe. Religion played a minor role. The 30 years war was fought mainly because many European leaders wanted more POWER and merely used religion as an excuse. If you had any clue at all about history and weren’t such the imbecile that you are, you would realize that, lol.

    Now, how about where religion, specifically Christianity, has prevented conflict. Well, there are many cultures in both South America and Africa that don’t fight because of CHRISTIANITY and its missions in their respective regions. Of course, you have absolutely NO clue what you are even talking about, so what am I saying.

    I thank you for your reply.  I don’t believe I’m an imbecile and I actually believe I have a good grasp on History, granted I many have simplified my point a little and been too broad in my statement, yes power and politics are players in those wars,  of course a country going to war is always political and war is about power….  Religious conflict was apart of every war I mentioned, and was a player, I actually know first hand from living through one of those conflicts, and religion brought nothing but heart ache and misery to generations.  Religon has no place in politic and politics and no place in religion.

    I don’t disagree that religion has had good roles, but if we start talking about South America and Africa, then we are opening another debate, about how christianity started in those countries.

    As a side note her, I like a good argument,  I appreciate that you responded to my comment, I love learning new things from all sides of the theological and political spectrum.  Name calling though, come on be civil.

    Religious conflict may have been a part of the wars you mentioned, but it was very minor at best with the exception of the Crusades. Heck, religious conflict wasn’t even really a part in the Kosovo conflict. That had absolutely NOTHING to do with religion and EVERYTHING to do with cultural differences. Religion wasn’t even an issue at all with Kosovo. Culture was. Also, of the wars you mentioned, religion was ONLY a player in the Crusades. Still, you have proven that you lack any grasp of actual history if you think religion was an actual player in Kosovo, lol. Religion’s role in Northern Ireland wasn’t even big enough of a role to be considered a player. Come back when you get a better grasp of history, please.

    Religion brought nothing but heart ache and misery to generations? News flash. That is a LIE. Religion has brought people together. It’s NOT religion that brought heart ache and misery to generations. It’s idiots like you who outright LIE about the potential of religion in society.

    There you go with the name calling……  “Religion’s role in Northern Ireland wasn’t even big enough of a role to be considered a player”, really, REALLY???….  Religion had everything to do with it, there was a giant fence dividing Catholics and protestants.  Catholic and Protestants were murdered for their religion.

    America doesn’t have a single faith, so its had to understand 1000′s of year of history being at beneath conflict where religious identification becomes part of national identity, the Balkens are case in point, The Serbs and the Albanians national identity is that of muslims and christians.  So just like N. Ireland or Israel on the street its a war of religion.

    Actually Religion brought nothing but heart ache and misery to generations? News flash. That is a LIE.  Its not a lie, not it my family….

    I have no problem with anyones beliefs, or practicing them…  Religion has no part in politics and politics has no place in religion.  All of the religions are suppose to be about peace, but (MAN)/ we turn them into zionist crusades which divide people, families and nations.

  • Anonymous

    Wrong. Religion was just one part in the conflict in Northern Ireland, and that part was nowhere near big enough to be everything to do with it as you claim. It’s role was minor at most.

    Also, it IS a lie that religion has brought nothing but heart ache and misery to generations. Your claim that religion has brought nothing but heart ache and misery to generations proves ONLY that you do NOT even understand religion. It isn’t religion that has done so. It’s idiots like you who divide people, families, and nations and blame it on religion when religion has NOTHING to do with it.

    Uhm, no. CULTURE had EVERYTHING to do with it, NOT religion. Religion is just one tiny part. Obviously, you did NOT actually live it as you claim. Religion was most certain NOT EVERYTHING to do with it. Religion was one small part. To say religion has EVERYTHING to do with it proves that you don’t even understand what Northern Ireland was even about.

    It amazing to me that you would argue with someone that experienced it first hand. I’m from Belfast. In Belfast your culture IS your religion.

    If you think culture IS religion anywhere, you are a TOTAL idiot. Religion is ONLY a SMALL part of one’s culture. There’s also one’s ethnic background, which is a much bigger part of one’s culture. There’s also traditions that have absolutely NOTHING to do with religion whatsoever. NOWHERE ON THIS PLANET is your culture your religion. Religion is just one very TINY part of a whole. Seriously, for someone who experienced it first hand, you are incredibly ignorant.
