UPDATED: Priest issues strong invocation against socialism

This morning on radio Glenn played audio of a Catholic priest issuing an incredible statement against socialism. While Fr. Andrew gave a traditional prayer to open his remarks at the 2012 Colorado Republican State Assembly and Convention, he quickly changed his message to one with much more political and social undertones.

"This is an issue between democracy and socialism. Now when we talk about socialism that sounds politically incorrect but as a Catholic I earned a free pass to talk about socialism because others who had stood with us have died died at the hands of the socialists for the past two centuries."

"And we know a little something about religious persecution and I'd like to share a few reflection. The first is whenever we have a religious liberties stopped it is a hallmark of socialism and will not be compatible with Christianity for two reason. Personal choice, and private property. Personal choice has to do with the personal conscious because you're responsible and accountable for all the things that God has given to us. That allows us to private property so we can than generous and return it to Lord and savior. Government, socialists, socialists want to take that responsibility away from us."

"That goes against our religion. We see -- we believe conscience and private property are not human ideas. They come from God. Not from humans."

"Socialists do not accept biblical truth. They do not understand natural law. You see we believe these are from our creator endowing with the life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Sounds familiar? It should because they are framed in our constitution. Therefore we know that socialism will never be compatible with our democracy the way we have it. As we face this third century of this threat I as a Catholic invite everyone of conscious to join us in this fight to join in fight against our religious liberty."

You can catch all the remarks in the full video below:

The segment starts around the 2 minute mark.

Glenn urged listeners to pass this along to their priests and ministers. He also said this kind of courage would be on display at Indivisible in Dallas, TX on Friday July 27th (you can get your tickets to that event HERE.)

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
