‘What goes on in there?’ Brian Williams is really scared of Mormons

The media wasn’t interested in Obama’s spiritual mentor and pastor for twenty years - the one who routinely says things like ‘U.S. KKK of A.’ in his sermons - but now they are all over Mormonism. NBC produced a ‘special’ on the religion which featured jaded former Mormons and an over dramatic Brian Williams, who breathlessly questioned what really goes on in the Mormon temple.

One featured interviewee was Abbey Huntsman, daughter of Jon Huntsman, Jr., who is not an active member of the church. She told Williams, "It's very black and white still. You either live by the Mormon doctrine or you do not."

She also told Williams, "I don't think (Mormons have) done a good enough job of opening up. They've been secretive."

Pat, who is a Mormon, took some offense at her comments. He joked that God isn't a "black and white" person, and that when it comes to faith and religion some people just might want to have a code of ethics that are respected by church members.

"These are supposed to be rules passed down from the beginning of time," Stu added.

"The Ten Commandments don't change," Pat said.

Williams also asked Huntsman what went on in the Mormon temple, wondering why he as a non-Mormon couldn't get in there when he could walk across Fifth Avenue and into St. Patrick's without question. And while Huntsman clarified it's just a sacred space, she said that she hopes the policy changes and more people are allowed in there.

"You're talking about a church not a temple. If there is a Mormon church you can worship in there at Sunday. Temple is different. Read the scriptures. Temples are different. As with ancient times not everybody can go in there willy-nilly. It's not a secretive place. It is a sacred place," Pat said.

Pat said there is a process in place to be able to enter the temple, and if you go through the process you can enter. But since it is a sacred place not anyone can just enter whenever they please.

"Looking at it from a presidential perspective. Here's a guy most likely not going to be sleeping around. Most likely not drunk when he needs to press the button. It's a positive to me. I want a guy who's boring," Stu explained.

"If anything, the typical profile of the average Mormon lends itself to you'd be good at that sort of job. Which is why Mitt Romney I think has been successful at business, and good at managing people, and managing, large controversial decisions over his life. To act as if this is scary thing, to me, is this bizarre approach only the media could come up with."

Nevertheless, Pat thinks the tactic of making Mormonism a scary thing in the media is going to only get worse.

"October is going to be bash a Mormon month," he said.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
