Kansas town flirts with "progress" and loses traditional values

There is a sign in the town of Buhler, Kansas causing controversy in the news this week. The sign in the small town, described as a town rooted in "small town values", featured a large cross, representative of much of the towns values. The sign is now being changed following a law suit from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).

The group complained, claiming the cross "violates the Constitution." TheBlaze reported that the cross has been included in the design for the past 24 years, however the FFRF didn't complain until the image was posted in a city park just four months ago.

After the city council decided to comply with the legal demands, the citizens responded with an extensive Facebook campaign. After just two days, the campaign gathered a lot of strength and the people of Buhler decided the sign isn't going very far. They're moving the sign across the street to private property.

This morning on radio, Glenn expressed his opinion on the FFRF's campaign and the cities response.

"The really missed the point of this sign," Glenn said this morning. "…nobody is talking about the progressives ideas being the problem on that sign."

Glenn was referring to the slogan on the sign that on one version reads: "Our second century of progress," and on another says, "Tradional Values. Progressive Ideas."

Glenn pointed out that the town is ironically up in arms over a group wanting to remove the cross from the public sign — they don't understand why.

Well, because it's a progress organization and they're pushing their "progressive ideas".

"You're eventually going to lose the cross in your seal if your seal has "progressive ideas" in it," Glenn quipped. "No doubt about it."

Glenn continued to point out the irony in the situation noting that the communities solution is to move the sign to private property.

"What is the progressive idea?  The elimination of private property," he said. "If you continue with these progressive ideals and ideas, you will lose your private property.  Which means you have no place to have your point of view.  None."

The situation with this town's sign is a great example of what progressivism does to traditional values, Glenn pointed out. The sign mixed the church with progressivism from the get-go.

They took traditional values and the Bible together with "progress" — which is antithetical in the eyes of a progressive. But, in the name of progress, they got together and said 'we'll compromise to make this baby step'. But in doing that the "traditional values" are really what are continuing to be weakened — weakened to the point where they are now doing all of the compromising, not the progressives.

"The and thing is they didn't have to move it in the first place.  This doesn't violate anything constitutional," Pat noted.

The FFRF even said that they sent a letter to the city council citing it was illegal based on federal rulings. Federal rulings are not the same as constitutional rulings — they're simply acting on precedent, a progressive idea. Using precedent makes the Constitution nearly irrelevant in most court cases now. The law can just be progressed ruling after ruling.

"The you can change the constitution. That's the way our system work. They [progressives] didn't like that. What they decided to go — and they started at Harvard — they stop teaching constitutional law to teach precedent," Glenn explained. "So now it's what does the court say? It's not about the constitution. What is the precedent from the public? Does the public -- are they moving in this direction? Are they progressing in this direction because we'll just use the evidence of the movement of the country is this way.  So they've completely taken the constitution out."

Glenn pointed out another example of an anti-religious progressive attack that was highlighted on O'Reilly's show just last night. This attack was directed towards Christmas. Watch O'Reilly's confrontation with the anti-religion spokesman below. You can get the full story on TheBlaze.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
