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: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

Here are 3 ways the 'Inflation Reduction Act' WILL impact you (Hint: NOT by reducing inflation)

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.
