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.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
