Glenn reacts to Graham's MSNBC interview

Glenn didn't get a chance to talk about Franklin Graham's heated interview on MSNBC yesterday so he took it on today. The MSNBC crew relentlessly tried to get Graham to say that Obama is not a Christian, which he clearly refused to say, but that didn't stop the hosts from declaring he said it anyway.

And Part 2:

Mediaite reports:

“I asked him when he was running… how he came to faith in Christ. He said that he was working in the South Side of Chicago in the community and they asked him — the community — asked him what church he went to, and he said ‘I don’t go to church.’ They said, ‘If you’re going to work in the community, you have to join one of our churches.’ And of course, he joined Reverend Jeremiah’s church. So that’s what his answer to my question was.”

“So therefore, by your definition, he’s not a Christian,” Geist said.

“You have to ask him,” Graham said. “I cannot answer that question for anybody.”

"What he's trying to say is 'I'm going to be a decent human being and I'm not going to judge the man's Christianity'," Glenn said.

But what was Graham's overall point? You judge a person by their actions and the content of their character, not whether or not they claim to be a Christian or go to church.

For example - Mother Theresa. By her actions she's obviously a Christian. Someone like Larry Flynt? It doesn't seem like it.

"Everyone knows Franklin Graham doesn't believe in abortion, partial birth abortion. He doesn't buy into the Marxist policies. He doesn't buy into redistribution of wealth. He doesn't buy into any of that stuff," Pat said. "Of course, he's going to wonder where this guy is coming from."

Glenn said that Graham, a preacher, is out on the front lines and leading a congregation of millions to feed and help the poor, live the way Christ intended, and more. Glenn said that even so, the ultimate person who says someone is a Christian is God. Glenn did say, however, that if you judge him by the content of his character he certainly seems to be living like Christian.

In the interview, Graham said, "I was 22 years old when I asked Christ to come into my heart. You cannot be born a Christian. You can only be converted and that is by putting your faith and trust in Christ."

"I asked him when he was running, when he was a Senator, I asked him how he came to faith in Christ. He said that he was working on the south side of Chicago in the community and they asked him, the community asked him what church he went to. He said I don't go to church. Then they said if you're going to work in our community, you have to join one of our churches, and of course, then he joined the Reverend Jeremiah's church. So that's what his answer to my question was," Graham continued.

"By Franklin Graham's definition that would not be a Christian. That is not someone who is converted. That is somebody who said he had to be in a church and he did," Pat explained.

"You know what? He's right by saying I have to take him at his word. What he just said was, the reason why he found Jesus is he went to church because he had to have it politically. There might be more to that story. I don't know," Glenn said.

"He is correct in saying I'm not going to judge him. I'll tell you a couple of things. Now how we can judge a man is by the content of his character. Now how do we know his character? By what he does. Does a man lead an honest life? Does he tell the truth even at his own expense? Let's just make a list of this," Glenn said.

"I'm just looking for character, character traits. Does he surround himself with good, decent, honorable men who may have made mistakes in the past? They may be people who were dirt bags at one time, but now are no longer dirt bags. They're trying to change their lives. Does he surround himself with decent, honorable men and women?"

"Does he surround himself with people of God? If you want to count Jeremiah Wright as that guy, if you want to count Jim Wallace as that guy. The last thing you go to is does he go to church, I think. Because if you're looking for Christ like qualities. If you are looking for is a man Christian, you have to look at what he does."

"Church is important to me, very important. The Sabbath is extraordinarily important to me. It's one of the commandments. So does he keep the commandments, yes or no? But that's one of the last things. If you're looking for somebody who doesn't say I'm a Christian. I met a lot of people who say 'I'm a Christian'" Glenn said.

How does Obama measure up when you look at the list laid out? He seems to fall a little short. After all, he tends to surround himself with some pretty questionable people (Marxists, Communists, Van Jones...).

"What you're looking for here is not the acceptance, but the conversion," Glenn continued.

"It's not what you say. It's has it affected you? Has it changed you? Are you helping other people? That's how I judge are they a Christian or not," Glenn said.

While Glenn did say that Obama does not seem to be someone who has been changed by their connection to faith and Christianity, many would say the same about Glenn himself.

"A lot of people can say that about me. Does that make them right or me right? No, no. Only God can tell you (whether someone is a Christian)."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
