There are some things worth dying for. Glenn addressed the story of a recently assassinated politician from Pakistan on radio this morning, and what his story means to Glenn.
“You have to be able to hold onto your soul and your name in the end of things. This is a tape we played for you earlier. This is a politician, a politician in Pakistan who is standing against Sharia law. I want you to listen carefully to what he said,” Glenn said. (Story continues after video)
“The forces of violence, militant parent organization, the Taliban and for Al‑Qaeda, they want to impose the radical philosophy in Pakistan. And whoever stand against the radical philosophy that threatens them. When I'm leading this campaign against the Sharia laws for the abolishment of blasphemy law and speaking for the oppressed and marginalized, persecuted Christians, and other minorities, these Taliban threaten. But I want to share that I believe in Jesus Christ who has given his own life for us,” said Shahbaz Bhatti, a 42-year-old Roman Catholic.
“He's fighting for the First Amendment right. He's fighting for his version of the First Amendment, to be able to speak out. To be able to say things, say what you believe. That's all he's standing for: Say what you believe. And he's saying, but I believe in it so much, I will not bend, and I know that they are threatening violence, but I believe in Jesus Christ,” Glenn said.
“This man was shot to death in Pakistan yesterday.”
“That tape was made, in case he died, and given to the BBC.”
“This is what I mean when I say know what you believe. Know what you believe. Because there are some things worth dying for. You must know. This man was fighting for the right to speak out. You don't want to continue to limit rights and bring things in closer and closer and closer and then say, well, I'll speak out, I'll speak out later, I'll speak out when it's a little more important. No. The consequences are bigger.”
“Know what you believe in. Fear not.”
