Glenn's take on gay marriage

Rick Santorum is under fire for his views on gay marriage. He’s being labeled a “bigot” by the left for having a different opinion and different moral certitudes.

Watch Santorum's comments below:

Glenn took a moment this morning to point out what exactly the word “bigot” means. “The definition of “bigot” is somebody that won’t listen to anybody else’s side because of their point of view, just won’t even listen to it.” The media, along with those who don’t want to see Rick Santorum as President of The Unite States don’t seem to care why Rick Santorum has the stance he does on marriage. Instead, they just want to stamp the big public label of “bigot” on his forehead.

Glenn then turned his attention to Santorum's comments.

While emphasizing that he is not opposed at all to Civil Unions (one of the few opinions he shares with President Obama - or so Obama says), Glenn gave a great analysis on why you can’t just change the definition of marriage, and most importantly who defined what marriage is (Big hint: it’s not the government), using the example of a simple math equation.

The equation is: 1 Male + 1 Woman = Marriage

Glenn, summarizing Rick Santorum's remarks, explained that gay marriage changes the equation to:

1 Male + 1 Male = Marriage

OR

1 Woman + 1 Woman = Marriage

Glenn explained that if we make the argument that we can change one variable (gender) then you can also change the other variable (number of people).

Pat said, "They want to change just one part of the equation. Well, you can't do that."

But does the left call for polygamy? Of course not. Even in the video with Santorum above, the left tries to dodge his arguments.

"It's like if you're on the left and you want to argue for gay marriage, whatever. That's fine. But have the balls to also argue for this," Stu critiqued. "You should have the balls to say it's another moral choice between consenting adults."

Essentially, if the argument for gay marriage is equal rights for consenting adults - are they going to stand up and fight for the rights of three thirty year old women to marry a sixty-five year old guy? If that’s their argument, they would have to …that is, of course, unless they’re a “bigot.”

But what's the solution? And does this mean that Glenn is anti-gay?

“I’m for civil marriage. All the rights, civil marriage, that’s fine," he told listeners. "My solution is take government out of marriage entirely. What is government doing in marriage?"

Glenn, Pat and Stu all said that marriage should not be tied up in tax laws and other government legislation and loopholes.

"You didn't get married for tax deductions," Glenn said.

"I've held it together for 30 years just so I can hang onto those deductions," Pat joked.

Glenn further explained that, whether the left likes it or not, the Constitution was based on Judeo-Christian values.

"Our laws are based in Judeo‑Christian values and laws. That's the way it's set up. Now, you don't like that; that's fine. Then change the Constitution. Because you cannot pick and choose," he said.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
