What is the message that can unite all Americans?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On Tuesday’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn made an argument that he has made many times before: history is repeating itself. This time, however, Glenn looked at history from a religious perspective. In Europe, we have already seen a movement toward the eradication of religion from society, and it is safe to say the global consequences of such a movement would be dire.

“We must unite now. History is beginning to repeat itself,” Glenn said. “In Europe, there is a very strong radical movement towards erasing all religion.”

In the years leading up to World War II, a similar movement existed because the state attempted to compete with religion for “moral authority.” In Russia, Stalin closed 40,000 Christian churches. In Germany, Hitler turned National Socialism into a national substitute to religion.

As a society, we may not yet have reached such an extreme, but Glenn sees us facing very similar problems if nothing is done to thwart attacks on religion.

“God is being driven out of the public square. God is openly mocked and hedonism and darkness are being embraced,” Glenn explained. “A society that continues to accept and applaud wrongdoing will destroy itself from within, it must. It becomes a virus to nature’s laws.”

In light of the ongoing immigration debate and the countless scandals plaguing the United States, it is easy to be discouraged. Instead of fixing the problems, Glenn explained that we are simply redefining them “to make ourselves feel better.” We are watching our culture, history, and customs change right before our eyes.

But there is hope.

“Citizenry armed with truth does not slide into slavery,” Glenn said. “Arm yourself with the truth and stand with confidence, because the truth lives here.”

Glenn turned to David Barton, Rabbi Daniel Lappin, and Pastor Ken Hutcherson to brainstorm  ideas for a cohesive message all Americans can unify around and use to fight back against those who are trying to devalue our culture.

David Barton suggested six principles from the time of the nation’s founding:

  1. There is a God
  2. God gives rights
  3. Government exists to protect the rights that God gives
  4. There is a moral law
  5. Below the moral law, people get to govern
  6. If the government doesn’t do those five things, the people have the right to a new government

Pastor Hutcherson, meanwhile, reminded America that we have overcome far worst in the past. “God and I are on fire, and I’m just excited about what’s going to happen,” he said. “Because the greatest thing in all the world is what I believe many of the people that overcame when it didn’t look like there was any way to overcome: enemy on the right, enemy on the left, enemy in the front, enemy in the back, and you know, what did you do? You just turn and around and look, says, ‘We got ’em where we want ’em. Let’s get ’em.'”

    I would like to recommend Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s life, ministry and teachings. If you have a negative image of him, consider that the American media has viciously attacked him since the early 1970’s up until his death last year. But do you really want to collaborate with the American media?
     I joined the Unification Church in 1981 and found him to be genuine, and consistently uplifting God, Jesus, and all who love them. Beginning his ministry from a spiritual experience with Jesus at the age of 15, he dedicated his entire life to bringing peace to this world. His teachings clearly show the fallacy of Marxism, and dialectical materialism, giving the most excellent critique and counter-proposal. He also stresses the common ground of all religions whose origin is God and how they can harmonize for world peace.

      I guess I am a son of Satan if I based my life and actions in your religious beliefs. Christ is LOVE, NOT HATE, LOVE UNITE PEOPLE, LOVE FORGIVE, LOVE LEADS. I believe Jesus Christ is loking down at the conservative movement and says, “that’s not what I delivered to you when I die on the cross”. Love your neighbor, like you love yourself . . . And, I believe in GOD as well, but not in religions, religions were created by men and that;s why are imperfect.

    The last line in the last paragraph is well worth remembering.  Similar to one often attributed to the late Lieutenant General Lewis “Chesty” Puller, USMC.

    This list mentioned above is exactly whats missing in our government and a lot of society – God is in charge – America was established upon a Covenant between God and man…  what amazes me is that there are people stupid enough and corrupt enough that they think they can side step or replace or remove God…

    As Americans, uniting as a people is quite simple:
    Stand as a whole, for united we stand, divided we fall. Whether Republican or Democrat; Faithful or nun-believing in creation; Black or white….if you love your country and cherish your freedom to be as we were intended then we need to stand united.
    This administration and the people on both sides of the isle that want to control us, they don’t Want what we want. We have the right to protect ourselves; the Second Amendment allows that whether you choose to own a firearm or not; You have the right to religion or not; You have the right to choose your liberties or not. Never let someone else dictate how you live your life. Laws are on the books. We can choose to follow the Ten Commandments or not and if you choose not to, know it’s still your choice.

    GB unity can’t be reach when you take one step forward and two backwards everytime you or your minions open their mouths to trash other Americans like democrats, muslims, progressives, liberals, Latinos, blacks, gays, etc. So, you tell me HOW? “Cause I don’t see much unity in your show . . . Probably, if you start praising OUR fellow citizens a bit, its a start.

    We, as conservatives fighting for our freedom, need to cling to God. Obeying Him is the only way we win. God Bless you Glenn.
