Under God: Indivisible

On radio this morning, Glenn interviewed Pastor James Robison about the "Under God: Indivisible" event being held the week of Restoring Love.

Transcript:

GLENN: Restoring Love, when we first did Restoring Honor in Washington D.C., it was a one‑day thing and then we added a spiritual event on the Friday night before, and Tania and I rented out the Kennedy Center. And I'll never forget because everything, everything was against us. The Kennedy Center, nobody wanted to come and put that thing together. Nobody ‑‑ the Kennedy Center did not want us there. They threatened to shut us down. They said that we couldn't pray there and they said, "Well, it will just be an opening prayer and a closing prayer." And I said, "No, get them back on the phone and tell them that I'm going to have them pray, every speaker is going to pray. Go ahead. Cancel us." And they ended up not cancelling us, but they hated us every second we were there. They hated us.

And then we went to Jerusalem and we did the second chapter, Restoring Courage. This is the last chapter. This is it. Restoring Love. Honor, courage, love. This one is the most elaborate. On Thursday night the American Airlines Center here in Dallas, Texas is having an event called I think Restoring Freedom and it is from Freedom Works and it is Free PAC. Tickets are on sale for that. They're over halfway sold, I think. It's going to be an amazing thing. People coming from all over the world. I'm going to be speaking there. Some huge names are going to be speaking there. That's a political event but not a party political event.

Then that morning on the Friday, the 27th, we have ‑‑ I believe this is the largest food, food drive ever attempted in America. There are 12 cities. We're trying to fill all these semis up and send them to 12 different cities to fill their soup kitchens. Plus already 25,000 volunteers have volunteered to come in with their families and work few a few hours, work at schools, work at libraries, work in the inner city, clean up neighborhoods, clean up parks, 25,000 people. The coordination of this is amazing. That afternoon there is something else that is going, Under God, Indivisible. James Robison who is a friend of mine, he got together and put together a huge meeting of the minds with pastors and priests and rabbis to come together and talk about the principles of America and what should be said on the pulpit. James Robison is here now with us. Hi, James.

ROBISON: Hey, Glenn. How are you?

GLENN: I'm very good. It was good to see ‑‑ what city were we in when I saw you last?

ROBISON: Denver.

GLENN: In Denver just last week, and you introduced me and you were ‑‑ you were so kind.

ROBISON: Well, you connected. You didn't think you did. You hit it out of the park. It was great and everyone was thrilled beyond words. I want to ask you this. You told me you were going away to be with God and your family which, you know, every time we talk, we talk about the importance of Jesus did that to get up along with God, how important it is for us, especially church leaders who did it so seldom. How was your time with God and family?

GLENN: It was great, James. In fact, you could barely get me off the mountain. It was really fantastic and, you know, I wrote to my business partner on the plane back and I said, I wrote him, you know, just a deal and he ‑‑ he wrote to me ‑‑ when I got off the plane, he wrote to me and he said, "I can tell this was settling because your note is so clear and so simple. I haven't seen a note like this from you in a long time." So it was, it was very settling.

So James, tell me who you've put together for this event on Friday.

ROBISON: Well, it's remarkable. We start in the afternoon and I ‑‑ at 2:30, and I really encourage people to make it an all‑day event. You can get a meal. We will go 2:30 until 5:00, have a meal and then come back with Phillips, Craig and Dean at 2:30 and then the speakers beginning at 7:00. But in the afternoon we're going to have several briefings. One of them will be from the defense, Alliance Defense Fund and they are going to talk about what actually is in healthcare in this package that is imposing an all‑out assault on the community of faith, those who value the preciousness of life as an example, as well as to let church leaders know how they can take a stand when so many of the moral and principle issues have been drug into the ‑‑ dragged into the political arena and how they can stand for virtue. We're also going to have a businessman show how we can take a penny, 1 cent, and balance the budget. This is quite amazing. You're going to be hearing some very dynamic speakers. Plus all of our panelist of speakers from the evening will be there. We will actually be taking some questions in the afternoon from the audience. But you're going to be hearing from Dr. Tony Evans; Dr. David Jeremiah; from Franklin Graham; Dr. Ravi Zacharias; my pastor and the one you listen to so often, Robert Morris; father Jonathan Morris who's seen so frequently on the Fox News. He's such a tremendous Catholic ‑‑

GLENN: He's a good guy.

ROBISON: ‑‑ representative; Samuel Rodriguez, who touches 30,000 Hispanic churches and is just a real leader; you'll hear from Kenneth Copeland; you'll hear from Jay Richards, who co‑authored the book Indivisible with me; pastor John Hagee; Rabbi Spiro, who is probably one of the great economic minds; pastor of one of the largest countries in the country, in First Baptist Orlando, pastor David Uth. You'll hear also from Richard Land, who is the head of the ethics commission for Southern Baptist which is the largest denomination in the country; Bishop Harry Jackson; Dr. Ken Hutcherson; Chris Hodges, who is a representative chosen by the ARC churches which are some of the powerful, largest, fastest growing churches consisting of young people, probably average age from 28 to 32, and they selected Chris Hodges. Jim Garlow will also be speaking; John Hagee. It's going to be a tremendous, tremendous evening. As a matter of fact, if we do not have a spiritual awakening which really puts the emphasis on the power of love. And, you know, love doesn't mean that you refuse to warn people of the danger of their precarious direction and our perilous course, but it does it with compassion. You know, the spirit of God is redemptive. The spirit of the enemy, the liar, the murderer, the deceiver as Jesus called him, the accused of the brethren, that spirit is a spirit of destruction. And that spirit is prevailing in Washington, it is prevailing in an assault on the family and on relationships and on influence and personal responsibility. It's an all‑out assault to destroy the basic foundation that enabled us to become the most prosperous, benevolent nation in history.

GLENN: So I know that ‑‑ I know that, you know, these pastors and priests and rabbis are getting together and I know you're going to talk a little about what should be said from the pulpits and how to say it and the things that, you know, have to warn the flock about, et cetera, et cetera. But people who are going there, are you guys going to touch on at all on ‑‑ you know, let's say I'm a, I'm a Catholic. Or let's just use my ‑‑ I'm a Mormon and my church doesn't really work this way but I mean, I'm a Mormon and so I have this ‑‑ you know, I have this pastor who's I think just going off the rails and I go, I go talk to him and, you know, he's on the wrong side of the issue. What do I do? How do I most effect and help my church get back onto the right track?

ROBISON: Glenn, as you know, that's the reason I joined with a Catholic philosopher as an evangelical protestant to write the book Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family and Freedom Before It's Too Late. We have actually given the textbook to the parishioners, to the congregation, to the church members as well as to the shepherds who may have chosen to be silent and be more like hirelings than shepherds. We have actually laid out the ground rules and here's what's going to happen at this conference. We're going to show people the imperative of people of faith, those who value faith, family and friend coming together as a mighty coalition. I know that's a political term, but as a power base of influence to correct our nation's course. If we don't do it, we will not correct the course. It will not simply be done by political party because political parties, each one need to make some corrections. And the church, the people of faith are to hold up a standard that points people of fact to the reliable course, to the safe course, to the sound foundation. We're going to so equip people, so inspire people that they're going to go out and realize that we're going to have some differences.

You know, you were helped as a person who was desperate with an alcohol problem and other issues. You found some compassionate people who helped you and you also referenced AA as being a contributor.

GLENN: Mmm‑hmmm.

ROBISON: Today when people get in trouble, rather than finding a friend or finding a compassionate connection and a compassion connection like you're talking about in Restoring Love, we simply wait for the government to send us a check. That's kind of like keeping the prodigal son in the pig pen and make him a little bit more comfortable or make people as comfortable as they can be in the ditch that they dug with their rotten choices. We have got to allow pressure and problems to bring us and literally move us toward help.

GLENN: You know, I don't ‑‑

ROBISON: And help is not Pharaoh, Caesar or the federal government. It comes from our neighbor, loving God and loving one another. We're going to show that Catholics and protestants ‑‑ let me give you one example: Catholics and protestants alone, if they would stand up for what they say they believe, could change everything in this country immediately. There is ‑‑ that's the numerical base. That's the faith base. That is the pro family, pro marriage, pro freedom base, pro faith base that can turn this ship. And we've got to get them to register, we've got to get them to get informed and be inspired enough to get active. And that is what we as church leaders, coming together, knowing that we've got some theological differences, maintain the freedom. We've got the right to discuss our differences and take a stand. If we don't turn this ship of state, we are sunk, and that is no exaggeration.

GLENN: Well, James, you can go to, is it under God, indivisible?

ROBISON: It's dfw.undergodindivisible.

GLENN: Dot‑org.

ROBISON: Dfw ‑‑ right. That's exactly right.

GLENN: Dfw.undergodindivisible.org. Tickets are 5 bucks and you can go in and you can see all these great speakers. And it's just, it will be a spiritual ‑‑ it will be a spiritual moment. And James, am I come ‑‑ am I speaking that night or not?

ROBISON: Yes, you are.

GLENN: Okay.

ROBISON: You said, can I come. You're the one that inspired us to come together. The whole media is going to be looking all over the world to say what are these church leaders going to say.

GLENN: Mmm‑hmmm.

ROBISON: And Glenn, I know you have such gratitude for what church leaders are doing who are willing to stand up.

GLENN: I do.

ROBISON: And be a light piercing the darkness.

GLENN: And I ‑‑

ROBISON: Not remain in silence and comfort and compromise. And you express such gratitude. You know how much I love you. We have developed a wonderful friendship and I believe that you are 100% right. It's love that never fails.

GLENN: Yep.

ROBISON: And we've got to return to love.

GLENN: James, I appreciate it and I tell you, I support any, any faith that will stand up for true principles and say them. I'm not ‑‑ I'm not for anybody getting up and saying who you should vote for or a party or something like that, but to stand up and say these are true principles and these are God's laws. What do the founders say? Nature's laws and ‑‑

ROBISON: Nature's God.

GLENN: And nature's God. They're clear over and over and over again, and anybody who will stand up I stand with. And I thank you so much for everything that you've done, James, and we'll talk to you again. If you want ‑‑

ROBISON: Well, I pray everyone who's going to be coming to Restoring Love will go ahead and make reservations on dfw.underGodindivisible.org. Come be with us.

GLENN: Thank you very much, James, I appreciate it. Find out all the information. If you don't remember that address by the time you get to work or wherever you're going, just go to MercuryOne.org and it will be up. We'll put it up on the front page. Tell somebody to put it up on the front page in case it's not there. But just go to one of the websites that you can remember and we'll make sure that it is posted there. Very worthwhile, spiritual event. Make sure you're there. Tickets start at 5 bucks. So it's no big deal. We'll go to MercuryOne.org and get your seat now.

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

A Colorado mother of three, Erin Lee, said her 12-year-old daughter was recruited by teachers to attend an "art club" after school, only to find it was a GSA or Gay Straight Awareness/Alliance Club. Not only was the family misled about the purpose of the club, but a guest speaker — who told the middle school students that "if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender" — also encouraged the kids to keep secrets from their parents.

Lee told Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday that her "shy, vulnerable, barely 12-year-old daughter" had just moved to Wellington Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado, when she was invited by her art and home room teachers to attend an "art club" after school.

"She texted us [and] we gave her permission for art club," Lee said of her daughter. "When she got there, it was actually GSA, or Gender and Sexuality Awareness or Alliance Club. The teacher had invited in a completely unqualified outside presenter who did unthinkable things with the children. I'll give you the CliffsNotes version. She told them, 'what you hear in here, keep in here.' She used flags to use defining words, telling them if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender. Then she would hand out the flags and stickers and bracelets and other swag. She told them that 'queer' is a label for when they're still figuring out their sexuality.

"She did the 'Genderbread person,' which explicitly asked kids who they're sexually attracted to, so 11, 12, 13-year-olds with peers and adults in the room, talking about their sexuality. She handed out her personal contact information and invited them to connect on teen chat platforms, like WhatsApp and Discord, where she knows that parents are not monitoring the conversation. She told them that families may not be safe, and it's okay to lie about where they are. And in fact, the art teacher, as my daughter was leaving the room that day, pulled her aside and said, 'remember, you don't have to tell your mom.'"

The outside presenter, Kimberly Chambers, is the director of SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, an organization that targets children as young as 5 years old, as indicated on its own website. Chambers is a paid employee of the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment with access to children’s information, according to a Parents Defending Education incident report.

Lee went on to say that, after learning from her daughter what happened, she and her husband contacted the school principal, who confirmed that the meeting was, in fact, held in secret and they are always held in secret because as a public school they have to offer children a "safe space." Lee then turned to the school board, but said she was ignored "for months." Finally, she was able to meet with board member Kristen Draper, who turned out to be a close friend and "strong ally" to Chambers. Draper also volunteers for an arm of SPLASH called SKITTLES.

"FOIA emails showed that [the school] immediately colluded when I objected to what happened," Lee told Glenn. "They immediately colluded with the school board to keep me quiet. They referenced parents who find out as 'barriers' that the school board has removed. They talked about sending social services into my home because I didn't like what they did with my child," she continued.

"My daughter had never expressed gender dysphoria before. She never expressed that she'd had any trouble at home. They never spoke to me. I never spoke to any of the people that did these things before they decided to talk about calling CPS ... In the state of Colorado, if my child had said to the CPS that I wasn't affirming her transgender identity, I firmly believe they would have removed her from the home. And the people knew this when they suggested that CPS come to our home to remove our child," Lee warned. "Colorado is off the rails in particular, but this is happening everywhere."

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.
