WATCH: Glenn opens the radio show with remembrance of 9/11

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On radio this morning, Glenn opened the show with the bone chilling audio of the 9/11 attacks that has become an annual tradition on the anniversary of the attacks on American soil. It’s hard to hear – but it’s necessary to help us remain vigilant and keep the promises we made to each other in the days after the attacks.

“I got dressed this morning and I thought, I’m a completely different man than I was in 2001,” Glenn said through tears as the audio came to a close.

“I was lucky enough to have found God in ’99. So my journey was a little easier.”

“Every year when I hear ‘It’s Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, and my name is Glenn Beck,’ I remember saying those words, trying to be strong, project confidence, give people a sense that we were going to be okay. But I was freaking out just as much as the next guy.”

“Somebody called me on the air that day and said, ‘Who did this? What’s happening?’ I didn’t have a single answer. But I promised that listener the same thing I promised God that night: I’ll do my best. I’ll find out what’s going on and I’ll alert. I won’t go back to sleep. I’ll be up to the task. I will finish the job. I will teach my children.”

“I’m a different man. I’m sure you feel the same way, but there are many days that I think, ‘It’s too hard. I’m tired of being a pariah.’ I held the hand of my son in Anchorage, Alaska. We had been talking about fishing and coming up bear hunting. It was a good boys weekend this last weekend. This lady accosted me in the street, started yelling at me, ‘We don’t want you in our town. Get out of our town. We don’t want you here. You’re a hater.'”

“I told you yesterday that I just turned to her and I said, ‘I love you.’ Boy, I didn’t want to say that. But that’s what came out, and it didn’t ‑‑ believe me, I didn’t think of it. I just kept repeating it, as she was screaming on the streets at me. I finally turned around and walked away.”

“As I told you yesterday, my son had been whisked away by somebody. He doesn’t really understand why we have security 24 hours a day. He’s just starting to learn. He said, ‘Why did that lady say those things, Dad?’ Each of my children have asked that question, and I answer it each time the first time for each of them the same way: ‘Your dad says things that he believes that a lot of people don’t like and even more people don’t want to hear, but I say them because I believe them to be true and that’s the most important thing that we can do.'”

“It’s our responsibility. It’s our responsibility to our country, our God, our children and our neighbors. It’s why it’s written as our first right that the government can never take away. It’s the most important thing. To be able to follow the dictates of your spirit, to worship the god of your understanding, and speak and stand with everything in you.”

“I don’t know what I did most of my life before September 11th, but I can tell you I’m amazed at what I have done since September 11th. I want you to take an inventory of what you’ve accomplished in the last eleven years and if it’s not a huge, long list of how you’ve changed for the better, then maybe you should go back and evaluate, did you keep your promise that we all made that night, that we all made. Because we’re all tired. But the good news is what I said on September 11th, ‘Nothing will destroy us except for ourselves’ remains true today. How are we doing on that front?”

    On Sept 11 our entire world changed direction forever as a nation; we suddenly found ourselves at war with an unknown enemy who hit us in a way that most would have considered impossible to have occured.

    Eleven years ago 3000 of our fellow citizens and soldiers perished in the fall of the Twin Towers, the Pentagon strike, and in the field where the fourth plane came down. It was a day America changed forever, a portion of each one of us who witnessed it, live or on TV or via radio or other media sources, will always remember.
    It was a day of heros being made, showing what in the core all of us are truly capable of being; when we have our backs to the wall, the exceptional courage of our people become the normal to all: the police and firefighters who did not hesitate to ascend the towers to rescue people, those who were the last to leave after ensuring all their employees left and they never made it out; the people who rushed to retake the cockpit of one plane, the last known words ‘Lets Roll” cried out and the struggle commenced.

    These people put their lives ahead of all others to save theri fellow Americans; and yet we have more heros forged from the outcome of that day as well: All who have fallen in service to this country against the war on terrorism around the world, they gave all for us.

    It is for all of them, those who have fallen on that day or in service to defend our nation since then that we, the living who seen it happen, bear the charge to never forget and to ensure generations to come understand the horror of that day, and of the true exceptionalism of America rising to the challenge.

    We have met the enemy from without and taken hold of them in their den and beat them; now we have to ensure the enemies at home do not do the same to us who seek only to be free for a better tommorow made with our hands.

    May God be with all of us in the time to come; here at home and abroad.

      I must add a caveate to this post; after placing it on another site as well, I have had a flurry of insults and some outright threats delivered to me, and due to these responses have been banned from
      We now have one more proof of how free speech is being abridged when an honest warning of the Obama political opportunism is mentioned, one is banned due to the complaints of the Obama supporters.

    I was in 1st grade at St. Ann’s Catholic School in Memphis when the attacks happened. It was announced over the speakers; I don’t remember if us schoolkids were immediately sent home or if our day proceeded as usual, but when I did get home, Mom had the TV on, showing the smoke billowing around NYC. I had a cousin in the city at the time, and my Dad had a friend of his living there, too, but neither of them were hurt. I was scared, and crying. I may have been a little girl at the time, but I will never, ever forget 9/11.
    Thank you for playing this tribute, Glenn.

    Glenn, I am so sorry that you have to endure the abuse of people like the woman in Alaska but I thank God every day for you and your work. Since Sept. 11, 2001 I have grown in knowledge of our country and in spiritual understanding. I have been privileged to watch you also grow to lead so many of us to join together. Thank You and may God bless you and your family!

      Well said and thank you . My sentiments exactly. Glenn’s children will be just fine as they have parents who truely love and care for them. I have nothing but gratitude for Glenn Beck and have gained in my own spiritual understandings, especially since that horrible day on 9/11. It was nice to read your comment, mjolene, and I just had to say Thank You.

      Leave it to the left instead showing respect for the deaths of thousands they take someone’s quotes out of context to score political points and act like an immature brat instead of showing any respect for people that died they feel the need to demonize people with out of context quotes. Why don’t you take Obama example today and nock the bullshit off just today you heartless ass!

    Thank you for the September 11th tribute. It seems that as the years go by, more and more people forget the horror of that day. I remember like it was yesterday. I woke up for the work day and saw on the news that a plane had crashed into one of the Twin Towers. When we saw the second plane crash we knew it was an act of terrorism. I listened to news radio on the way to work and when I heard that the Pentagon had been attacked I thought we were entering WWIII, because in my mind the Pentagon was invincible. When I arrived at work, at a downtown courthouse, everyone was glued to the news in the offices and judges chambers and the lawyers were all standing outside the courtrooms with hand held radios. It felt as if reality has somehow halted and we were all suddenly in the middle of a movie scene. I will never forget that day … I have made it a resolution to watch tributes and have a small tribute of my own with my family each year on this day. It is our duty as Americans, and our duty to those that paid the ultimate price that day, to never forget. As I said, I remember the horror of that day, but I also remember the patriotism as well. For the weeks following, I remember seeing people flying American Flags outside of their homes and cars (much like they do with sports team flags on the way to a game), and I realized that America was unified. I wish I felt that America was still unified, especially in the name of those that perished that day. It seems that in life, it is sometimes “human nature” to forget until we are forced to remember what is really important in life. I am determined to always retain in my remembrance the lessons we learned that day and carry them in my heart always.

    I was fourteen at the time this happen. I remember
    everything from that day. After the first attack they told us a plane hit the
    twin towers over the pa everything in that school stopped and teachers turned
    on the TVs in their rooms as my math teacher did. Watching smoke coming out of
    one of the towers my first thought was that this had to be some sort of freak
    accident but when the other plane hit I knew then cowards attacked our country.
    The one thing of that day that will stick with me is seeing little black
    objects falling around the buildings later finding out they were people jumping
    to their deaths. We must never forget this day I know I never will.

    • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

      I was thirty when the attack happened, the instant it did I knew this was more than an accidient; just a hunch, but it was true. What still rends me to this day is that people are told of the event, by us who saw it, and hear the words “so what?”

      • Rahm Kota

        They would not think that if they saw it first hand or watch it live on TV. This day should be treated with reverence but instead we come here and listen to heavily out of context comment that left drag out to use 9/11 as a weapon used on Beck every damn year. Even a white house cohort attacks Mitt even when Obama said he would stop the negative campaign. This should be a day when everyone should stand together but instead we get more division. Haven’t we even learned a dang thing from 9/12? I don’t know about you but I am sick as hell of the disrespect that people show for this day.

        Ok I just did. Its been 11 years and 7 year-olds are being molested at airports, every blog post, text, phone call, email, and social network post is being recorded. The President can now disappear people with no trial or charge. The FBI is linking all the cameras in the cities of America to run giant algorithms to face recognize every person that walks by them.

        3000 people died yes, but the death of 3000 people is not worth our freedoms.

        • Rahm Kota

          Do you think that the victims asked for that? It is the governments fault and how is forgetting what happen going to fix the fact the government is run by power crazed nut jobs? Attack the government and not the victims that never asked for the families to be raped at the airport.

          • Anonymous

            You don’t need to forget so much as you have to move on. If the event still invokes an emotional response from you then it still clouds your judgement on how you handle the situation to this day, like the politicians you vote for. Or I don’t know, maybe having thousands of Evangelical Christians booing Jesus Christs Golden Rule at a South Carolina primary debate.

          • Rahm Kota

            It does not affect my judgment you should not be placing big government on the victims heads that is my beef with you. It all seemed like you were blaming them for the crap storm we are in so doing you even dare try to make me into a bad guy in all of this. What should I forget the courage of the firefighters and the police as they ran into burning buildings and later died trying to save people lives? Should I forget the people who saved lives on flight 93 when the prevented them using their plane as a weapon? Didn’t Jesus say in John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. Maybe it’s you that should pull the plank out of his eye because I hold no hate in my heart for this day but we saw the best of humanity not just the worst. The only person who forgot that is you.

    • greywolfrs

      Oh, stop. You think it is a good idea to “move on.” Should we forget about Pearl Harbor too? Should never look back and learn from the past? I bet you are one of those fools who thinks that people shouldn’t learn from events that have happened. You are one of those fools who are doomed to repeat past mistakes because you refuse to learn from them.

        “Should we forget about Pearl Harbor too?”

        I don’t walk around remembering Pear Harbor.

        These things are symbols and symbols are for the unintelligent. Symbols are simply empty vessels for the powerful to pour their ideologies in to.

        I’m not doomed to repeat anything. AS a history major I’m sure I know more specifics about history and its context than many people on this page put together.

        • greywolfrs

          So, we shouldn’t have a day to remember those people at Pearl Harbor, you know, Dec 7? Maybe we should just tear down the memorial in Pearl Harbor. Symbols are for unintelligent people, as you are using a symbol. Ron Burgandy, as in the charactor played by Will Ferrell? That is a symbol, so keep proving your stupidity.

    I remember that morning like it was yesterday. I had only moved back to Tampa the prior weekend, and on Monday was starting back up my old landscape company. I was listening to Glenn Beck for the first time. Loved the show. The next morning I woke up to my mother’s phone call, telling me to turn on Fox News and there it was….
    I muted the tv and turned on 970WFLA. I listened to you and Stu that morning. It profoundly changed my life. Thank you, for all that you everyday in the hopes of a brighter future for all of our children. I pray daily for you and all of your staff!

    I was scheduled to have knee surgery 9-13-2001. I lived in Wisconsin and was headed for Chicago to go golfing for the last time of 2001. No, I couldn’t walk very well, but I could hit a golf ball and get back into the cart for the ride. I only struggled around the greens using my golf club to hold myself up. I left my house at 8am CT and turned my radio to Chicago sports radio. I really wasn’t paying attention much because I wanted to know if the White Sox won the night before. I kept saying ” why is there news on my sports station?”. I took a bit to realize that something was going on and I started to listen. I then turned to Chicago’s news station. I finally figured out what was happening and while driving started to wonder if a plane hitting one of the towers was an accident. How could you not see a tower so tall. I wondered if it was cloudy and a horrible accident. Then the live radio told of the 2nd plane hitting the 2nd tower. I knew right then we were under attack. But by who, I thought it couldn’t be the Russians or a country because they wouldn’t have attacked like that. Then I turned to radical Islam. They had attacked the WTC in 93, the Cole , the Embassies in Kenya, and scores of other terrorist attacks leading up to this. I pulled over and started to weep. I truly felt this was it. The beginning of the end. Armageddon. The last days, judgement. I thought and prayed to God. I asked him if this was it. I was relatively happy because I would get to witness the end of days. I got back on the road wiping the tears from my eyes. I needed gas and stopped at a Mobile station on I-94 just outside Racine. Its was run by Muslims. I stopped there every time I went to Chicago to visit ( Grew up there ). I saw Ahmed, the owner riveted to a radio. It was he and I alone in silence listening. He looked up at me and said ” Radical Islam did this, I know it by the way of the attack.” I paid for my gas and told him ” be careful my friend, it may get ugly for you today and tomorrow”. I drove the final hour listening to the radio. The plane hit the pentagon. The plane went down in Shanksville. Though the airspace was to be empty, I saw planes still flying and wondered. I then went past O’Hare. …nothing at all. no take offs no arrivals. Very eerie for the 2nd busiest airport in the country to see no action at all. I got to my friends house and he wasn’t awake yet. I woke him up and said ” Dave, turn on the TV, the World Trade center is gone”. He looked at me puzzled, confused and still half asleep. ” What do you mean the World Trade Center is gone?”. I said” It was hit by a terrorist attack and both towers had collapsed”. He didn’t believe it. The we both watched what I had been listening to for 3 hours. We looked at each other at 1st with dismay, and then with anger. We cancelled our golf game and watched TV for hours. I left for home around 3pm CT. I called my kids. I called my parents. I called my brothers and sisters. and I prayed for the dead and living. Last year I told this story to my church on Sept. 11th. I asked them if I could a year before and they said yes. In August my pastor came up to me and asked me what I was going to say. He was worried I would make a rant against Islam and he didn’t want that , which I understood. I told him, ” pastor, my talk will be about faith”. He was relieved. When the day came I talked about how people went to church, many for the 1st time in years that Sunday. I and a good friend of mine were such like individuals.I hadn’t been to church in a decade at least. That Sunday was the 1st time going to church. Been going for years of Sunday’s in the Lords hands. God bless the United States of America. I just wanted to share is all. I hope I didn’t trod on to badly folks. Never forget 9-11-2001.

    You are an amazing man that I have listened to from the beginning and truly believe in and know in my heart and soul you are the one man we can believe in to bring us the truth, the honor and the faith, hope, and charity…….My sadness is the simple fact you can not even walk down a street and not be harrassed by idiots and the fear I have for you, your wife and your children….all because this man has a strong belief and has brought it to us, to learn these facts that will make or break our future and has to live his life in security and fear…..I often ask myself, what have we come to in this country? It is beyond belief what I hear and see at times. I mourn the loss of our souls and integrity and decency….It is with such sadness I write, but Glen, I am never going to give in our give up because I, too, have a child that just married and I will do everything in my power to see to it she has a life of FREEDOM!~~~~~~God Bless you and your family and may you stay safe and sound and my prayers are with all of you!

    I remember where I was as a college student when JFK was assassinated and as an adult when the Berlin Wall came down. I never thought I would add a third scenario to it but I remember 9/11 like it was yesterday and being so worried about my daughter who worked down the street from the White House and my brother-in-law who worked in the Pentagon. I am grateful that you are doing what you do and pray that you continue as you have taught me so much. God Bless you and your family.

    These are my thoughts on 9-11, called “The Eleventh Hour.” I hope I am not alone in my remembrance or assessment.

  • Ro Elizabeth

    Sept. 11, 2001, I was teaching. It was my third year with a first grade classroom. A call came to the room that said put on the TV or radio – a plane crashed into the WTC. At first it was what? Then we turned on the TV and the replays were rolling then plane 2 hit tower 2 right before our eyes. It looked like a movie. But the reality hit me hard. In 1999, I sat in Calvary Chapel, Phila., PA area listening to an Israeli man who wrote a book about radical Islam and their hatred of America and Israel and how they would unleash their hatred. This was my first thought, OMG – our world our America will never be the same. Like many others it was very Apocalyptic. Phila area schools and practically everything shut down that day. It took 1 hour + to go 2 miles to get my daughter from her school. Once I got her, it was hard to let go. She was 12 at the time and having heard me “preach” about all things end times and basically tuning me out – she didn’t think I was crazy anymore. I called my parents like so many other people who were separated from their loved ones. My parents also thought I was crazy since I heard that speaker; they also had an awakening. Did life change? Yes it did. Our little town in southern NJ lost a son – Andy Alameno my classmate for 8 years and family friend. My teaching career took on new meaning – to make sure all the children who I come in contact with despite not being born yet would know this history even though the media won’t cover it. Yesterday, a girl I taught who is now in 3rd grade saw me and said “Remember tomorrow is Patriot’s day.” I smiled at her and said “I remember and I’m glad you do too.” You see this little girl’s family came from Morocco a little bit ago to give her a life without terror and to have one filled with liberty and freedom promised in America. As a first grader she joined my club after school that was teaching American History and the Constitution. My intro lesson to this club for ages 6-12 is about 9-11-2001. I begin there. Then we look back into history to see why it is relevant today. She along with the other students in club are anxious to begin again and so am I. Thank you Glenn and the staff at The Blaze, GBTV, Mercury One… God’s blessings and protection to all of you because the world doesn’t want the TRUTH. I’m glad I got to hear you first thing this morning. It gave me perspective on the day.

    Glenn, you’re doing amazingly good things. Please don’t let the haters affect or change you. I’m sure the only reason you even see those haters is because of your paternal protectiveness toward your children. The older ones must be very proud of you and the younger ones will grow up being proud of you, just don’t expect to hear them admit it until they’re at least in their late 20’s.
    When I found you, I had been feeling lost, alone and totally out-of-step with society. Because of you, I found out that I wasn’t alone. I was actually part of that silent majority I had heard about in my youth. You got me back on the path of educating myself about our Founders and what was happening in and to my country. After 9/11, I think we all needed that. As someone who, for unknowable reasons, has gone alone through this journey called life, you unknowingly threw me a lifeline at a time when I desperately needed it. You’re a good man, Glenn Beck, and I believe God put you here at exactly this time and place for a huge reason.
    As a life-long admirer of Abraham Lincoln I’ve always tried to live my life “With malice toward none, with charity for all” and I see you in the ending of that quote “…let us strive on to finish the work we are in, …to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”
    God bless.

    Dear Glen , What can you do? We live in a “You go tell ’em ” society. While everyone hides in behind your back. So like you ,I got tired of biting my tongue for fear of being attacked verbally or physically. I’m 6’1 and 240lbs of solid American and Catholic man. I’m also gay and have spent most of my life singing in musical theatre.Surprise,surprise! But that to me has always been so secondary to the fact that I’m a catholic and proud American. When you came along I finally felt that someone was finally thinking like me and that I could finally listen to someone in the media. Its sad that your kids are always around you when one of these liberal nazis attack you in the streets but you must know its because they have no other place to release their misguided vitriolic hatred. Ironically, they stand alone and they know it! God Bless you and your family and the great work you do to speak for the silent masses.

    I was on my way to work as a substitute teacher in a middle school when I heard the news over my car radio. When I got to my classroom, instead of following the lesson plan the regular teacher had prepared, I turned on the radio in the room (we didn’t have a TV). I told the classes that day that what was happening in New York, and Washington DC, and in Pennsylvania was more important than anything they might have learned from their regular lessons. So I let them just listen to the news, all day. I told them that they would remember that day the rest of their lives, and that their lives would be changed by those events. One boy asked me, “Does this mean we’re at war?” My answer was “Yes”.

    Can someone tell me why the president of this country apologized to the muslims who took over our embassy in Egypt. On this day September 11, 2012. When this nation is in mourning for those we lost! Can someone tell me why he is giving money to the Arabs, now when he will be out of office. How can people not see that he is truly a traitor to this country. To apologize to a bunch of muslims to hate us! I am angry, I am RED WHITE AND BLUE ANGRY. I won’t wait for him to give me permission to fight these bastards.

    Dearest Glenn,

    I share your pain with
    you on many occasions, sitting in a hotel room on a business trip, or in an
    airport or early morning in my office. Stay strong my friend….for every hater
    there are thousands of us that love and pray for you daily. God will vindicate
    you in the end when every knee shall bow and tongue confess that Jesus Christ
    is Lord. All God’s faithful servants will be recognized and that is the
    popularity contest we strive to win. The severity of those that attack you is a
    good indication of the severity of light you are shining in the world and exposing those in the dark. Stay strong, pray fervently and trust the Holy Spirit
    to stand in front of you in the darkest places

    “When the servant of the man of God got up and went out
    early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city.
    “Oh, my lord, what shall we do?” the servant asked.

    “Don’t be
    afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than
    those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “Oh Lord, open his eyes
    so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he
    looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around

    I am listening to your inspired tribute 9-11 and you just said “you promised God.” Glen you made a covenant and that is where this global battle for hearts and minds is centered. Evil wants to destroy the relationship between God and man, and the Marriage Covenant is in the crosshairs. We need a banner. a guidon that confronts evil while making a bold statement of right relationship with God. Our opponent is about destroying TRUTH. The banner at is one such attempt. See it “humbly” fly at Jesus is surrounded by a rainbow as He sits enthroned in heaven (Revelation 4:3). We need to try to take it back…for TRUTH’s sake.

    Glenn I thank you so much for your support for Israel and even more importantly for justice. You so nobly and with great courage embrace
    one of my favorite Pascal quotes: “Where there is power let there be justice and where there is justice let there be power.” I owe you so much for what you have done and still do daily.

    Yes it did! September 11, 2001 changed ALL of OUR LIVES some people still do not understand that. Glenn Beck is hated as much as any one I can remember except President George W. Bush and I think GOD both of the MEN have done the things they believe are necessary to Keep US ALL SAFE. You do not have to AGREE with them however YOU have the FREEDOM to speak and you should use it without MALSUS. President Geoge W. Bush did what he thought was right. He also told us there were 3 Countries who he called the access of Evil. Two still exist and kept trying to DO HARM to those who believe different. We have been extremely tolerent and I hope and pray it does not come back to haunt US ALL. Evil does exist and needs to be KEPT in CHECK! Check the National DEBT since September 11, 2001 it has went straight UP this should wake US ALL UP and DEMAND that OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS do their JOBS and together make a REAL PLAN to GET US out of DEBT and the SOONER the better it should not be a R or L issue NO AMOUNT of TAXES will FIX the PROBLEM. We must insist they STOP the SPENDING and have a SIMPLE TAX CODE people understand. Muderers have HEALTH Insurance and can even GET A SEX change because a JUDGE says it is a Constatutional RIGHT! We ALL should have affordable HEALTH Insurance and it should not be run by the Government!

    Anyone with a heart, anyone who loves this country, anyone concerned with our freedoms, can relate to Glenn’s display of emotions. Who among us weren’t affected that fateful day? Who among us didn’t know someone who experienced the horrors of that day first hand? Who among us believes America will never feel the same? Who among us will give up our lives so that our children will be free?
    God Bless America.

    Glenn, some lessons are never and may never be learned, by many. From my home to yours, we love and respect all you do.
    May our Lord keep you and yours safe and continue to bless all you do.

    Great intro………made me cry………….again today. Also watched the portion shown showcasing Mitt Romney’s character. He wasn’t my first choice, but I think we got what we needed as a Country in this particular time in our lives. I will gladly vote for Romney!

  • Fonda

    Thank you Glenn. I remember practically every day what happened on 9/11 & I thank God that I have the knowledge I have of Jesus Christ and His love and plans for us. I am so grateful I live in the United States and I pray daily for our Country and those Patriots, like yourself, who are trying to educate the masses and empower them to stand up and RESTORE this Country. May God bless you, your family, your staff, and all those who support you.

    God Bless you Glenn. I remember watching the television news that morning and asking myself, “Why now? What has changed in our country that someone would be bold enough to attack the most powerful nation in the world knowing that the retribution of our country would be their demise?” This was an act of war. Little did I know then what I learned for myself in the coming years.

    Most (or all?) of the terrorists that hijacked those planes were Muslim and from Egypt, a country who supplies the U.S. oil. We couldn’t offend them so our government announced that the perpetrators who were radical Muslims under the direction of Osama Bin Ladin and not associated with any one country were responsible. This tied the hands of our military. We are not allowed to identify the enemy as Muslim, only the radical portion even though the Muslim religion as a whole is required by the Koran to look upon anyone else not believing in Mohammed as infidels and worthy of death. Any Muslim man who dies for their belief is promised sexual benefits (virgins) in this religion.

    That is the major difference between the religions: Muslims are taught to die for their god. Christians are taught that their God died for them. Muslims are able to have their Koran in our country but U.S. citizens in Muslim countries are forbidden to have the Bible. Who is the anti-Christ?

    Glen, I just need to say I have been moved by the things that you have shared. I get your emails, and friends with you on face book. Sometimes I read all of the things that you share and sometimes I skim. But I am on your side. i appreciate all the things that you have brought to the attention of so many Americans. I don’t agree with you 100% of the time, but that is OK, that is what makes this country so great. I am just appalled at the hate that you have received, on your flights and on your trips! I tell you one thing I would be excited to run into you anywhere! Stay strong, pray often, remember who you are, and know that you will be blessed. May God bless you.

    September 11 was the beginning of the physical downfall of the United States of America!  Over the years, too many people have adopted the ways of Satan and claim them to be the new truth.  Abortion, misuse of the sexual energy, especially homosexuality and lesbianism, same sex marriage, drugs and alcohol, and the all crucial non-belief in God, demand to seen as healthy and truth.  These beliefs have made America totally vulnerable to those throughout earth who want to destroy her. Her shield has disappeared. America must return to her God; then and only then, will America return to the glory which she is destined to show the rest of this world.  America is meant to be the highest example of what men and women can aspire to be. I pray daily that everyone who has lost their way return to their source and rebuild their life in Christ.

    Thank you Glenn and your team for assisting the Lord in helping people find their way back.  God bless you and God bless America!
