Glenn's son was baptized over the weekend

It was quite an eye opening experience for Glenn this weekend as he had the opportunity to baptize his son Raphe. As he stood there in the water with his son, Glenn was overcome with a sense of purpose and clarity on what our biggest job as parents truly is.

"My son got baptized this weekend. In my faith we don't do infant baptism. We do it at 8 years old, the age of accountability when you can decide, you know. I don't believe in original sin, and my son now knows if he's stealing something, he now knows he's stealing. Now he's being held accountable. And so at 8 years old we get baptized and so he did that, and I had a chance to baptize him myself. And standing there in the water with your son at 8 years old gives you a couple of things: One, what a huge responsibility it is to be a parent and, jeez, have I taught him anything of value. Have I ‑‑ I mean, he's there, but this is his first step. Does he even really understand it? And then the second thing that crosses your mind is how fast time is going."

"I was talking to my sister yesterday and one of her friends who is a friend of mine, a childhood friend of mine, passed away. She was, what, 52? And we're getting to the point, has anybody else gotten to the point in their life yet where you're the next generation now? You know how you ‑‑ remember when you were a kid, you had the uncles who were like, 'Oh, and I got bad gas and I got ‑‑ I had to have my liver removed and... and Ethel fried it up with some onions and we ate it and it was delicious but then it gave me some bad gas.' And you always had those talks with the old people who were always losing teeth or something was going on with them. They were always having organs removed or exploratory surgery and then they would just die. And ‑‑ but you always had generations in between you. Now I'm to the point to where it's my parents and then I'm the one that, with the bad gas. We're the ones!"

"Time is going so fast. And for me at least, it ties in to the election because I don't think I'm alone. I think some of us feel like we've wasted four years. We did all these things and we wasted four years, and more of our brothers and sisters out on the streets, they still don't get it and they don't care."

"So what are we going to do? Waste another four years? I want to talk to you about that tonight if that's the way you feel because that's the way I feel, and I want to talk to you about it tonight because I think I have some perspective on it."

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
