Bible readers more likely to support social justice?

Could it be that reading the Bible actually increases a person’s interest in science and social justice?

According to a new study conducted by Baylor University researcher Aaron Franzen, yes!

The study finds that people who read the Bible daily are more concerned with a variety of social issues. While this may seem like common sense to those who actually read the Bible, this information is considered revolutionary.

“The study claims that social consequences of reading scripture reveals the effects of Bible reading and transcends conservative liberal boundaries,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “What they're saying God is bigger than the GOP or the democrats.”

The research finds that the amount of time one spends reading the Bible is “one of the most powerful predictive factors associated with the citizen’s attitudes on social and political attitudes,” Glenn said.

It seems that those who interpret the Bible literally, but spend rarely read it, are often ideologically opposed to those who read the Bible more frequently. And as people read the Bible more often their political attitudes transform. According to the study, those who read the Bible more often actually have an increased interest in science and seek social and economic justice.

Glenn took issue, however, with the lack of definition for economic and social justice.

“I'd like a definition of the economic and social justice,” Glenn said. “On the surface I'm for social justice. I'm for economic justice as well. I want people not to live in poverty. I want to make sure we take care of each other. Is that social justice?”

“It [social justice] is that we want to take care of each other, and we all have a responsibility to do so,” Glenn concluded, though he cautioned listeners not to fall into the trap of defining the term.

“I recommend you don't because you are watering down what is really happening,” Glenn warned. “You're buying into -- remember when I got on the air and I said social justice and the sky opened up. That's because we shot a howitzer right into the open heart. We didn't know. We didn't know how deep that went. Don't use the word social justice.”

The Blaze also reports that literalists who read the Bible more frequently become more moderate in their conservatism over time, while increased readership also trends toward an opposition to the death penalty and abortion no matter political affiliation.

Regardless of what the study may say, none of this information should come as a surprise to those who actually read the Bible.

“Reading the Bible makes you care about your fellowman more,” Glenn said. “It's why conservatives give more to charity than liberals. This is nothing new. This is nothing new.”

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
