Glenn: "We are all brothers and sisters"

Glenn discussed remarks made by Governor Bentley of Alabama, who had apologized for his recent remarks where he said that non-Christians were not his “brothers”.

Glenn played the audio on radio this morning.

“[Gov. Bentley] was at a church service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. During his speech he said, quote:  Anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I'm telling you, you're not my brother and you're not my sister, and I want to be your brother,” a reporter said.

Glenn disagreed, “Everyone is my brother and -- Van Jones is my brother.  I disagree with [Van Jones].  I totally disagree with him.”

Pat added, “And it doesn't matter what they've done and it doesn't matter what religion they are.”

Stu pointed out, "I t just seemed to be a statement of, look, I have faith; I hope I can share it with you.  So, you know, you're right.  People in Alabama are going to figure it out.  But it doesn't look like this guy's some horrible person for this comment."

Glenn added,  And we didn't bring it up to condemn him."

Bentley had apologized earlier, saying, “Do I get in trouble about speaking openly and honest about anything?  Sure, I do.  But I also realize that sometimes you just have to choose your words and you have to do it correctly.”

But Glenn had some issue with the way he phrased his apology, as it tied back to his issue with political correctness.

Glenn said, “ Now he knows he can't say those things and so he says I will choose my words more carefully next time.  Well, no.  No, don't choose your words more carefully.  Let's have the dialogue.  I don't want you to live with that idea as being true.  Let's not live in silence.  Convince me or I'll convince you.  Let's have the debate.”

Glenn tied the comments back to the Edwards Bernays cattle/rancher theory that he has been talking about recently.

“There are cattle and there are ranchers.  In this case it's not Republican/Democrat or progressive and constitutionalist.  Here it is Christians versus everybody else.  In Islam the way, you know, the people like Osama Bin Laden understand it, it is Muslims are the ranchers and everyone else are cattle.  That's the problem.”

The argument reminded Glenn of a conversation he had the night before with a member of his television staff. During the conversation, the staff member talked about her upbringing in San Francisco, her family’s thoughts on her working for Glenn, and what she thought about some of the topics.

“And I said [to her], I'm guessing your job is not real popular in the family.  And she said, yes, you might say that it's made for some interesting discussions.  And I said, how much of -- and she's brilliant and she has changed the show.  She really has.  She has made it so much better.  And I said, how much of the stuff that I say do you even agree with?  And she said, I don't know.  I think I'm about 50%.”

“And I said, you know, this is the way it's supposed to be.  It's supposed to be not about politics.  Not about parties but about the principles.  And I don't really care -- I mean, we work together great.  I don't care what you do in your life.  I don't care what you believe.”

“What you do in your life I might disagree with and I might say, no, no, no.  But as long as I can't control you and you can't control me, as long as we are as libertarian as we possibly can, as long as we don't believe there are ranchers and cows but town folks, then we can live side by side and we can be fine.  We can be fine.  That's the way it's supposed to be.”

A caller from Alabama defended the Governor, and it led to a theological discussion about the origin of the soul. Glenn emphasized that he was not condemning Governor Bentley, but using the story to make a larger point about opening up discussion and not shutting down speech.

“We're bringing it up to make a point that we should have these kinds of conversations and you can have really serious conversations and not shoot each other.  That's the way it should be.  Because we're all brothers and sisters,” he told the caller.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
