The New Mexico Supreme Court decision that will "send a chill down your spine"

On Thursday, the New Mexico Supreme Court issued a ruling that could have national implications. The court decided a Christian wedding photographer violated the New Mexico Human Rights Act (NMHRA) by refusing to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony.

“Interesting that happened in court in New Mexico,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “The New Mexico Supreme Court on Friday handed down a decision against a Christian couple who simply wanted to live their faith. That's it. The language that the Supreme Court handed down should send a chill down your spine.”

In his concurring opinion, New Mexico Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Bosson said photographers Jonathan and Elaine Huguenin “are free to think, to say, to believe, as they wish,” but they “must compromise, if only a little, to accommodate the contrasting values of others.” Bosson explained that this is “the price of citizenship.”

According to TheBlaze:

The Albuquerque-based photography studio Elane Photography did not want to photograph the ceremony between Vanessa Willock and Misti Collinsworth because studio co-owner Elaine Huguenin said it would violate her Christian beliefs and that the company only photographs traditional marriages.

The majority opinion for the court stated that the studio violated the rights of the lesbian couple “in the same way as if it had refused to photograph a wedding between people of two different races.”

The state of New Mexico does not recognize gay marriage or civil unions, hence the couple was having a “commitment ceremony.”

The opinion further stated that the New Mexico Human Rights Act does not violate the photographer’s First Amendment because it “does not compel Elane Photography to either speak a government-mandated message or to publish the speech of another.”

"What is this story about,” Glenn asked. “Well, they decide that their right to have this couple photograph their wedding trumps this couple's right to disagree…. It is the price of citizenship according to New Mexico Supreme Court now.”

This ruling will, more than likely, end up before the U.S. Supreme Court. Sadly, Glenn, Pat, and Stu were not convinced Chief Justice John Roberts would draw a different conclusion.

“This goes to the Supreme Court. Do you know that they will decide otherwise,” Glenn asked. “You know you'll have John Roberts come out, he's been crying himself to sleep all night. ‘I don't want to be called names. I don't to go down as a guy who was a bad guy of the Supreme Court. I don't want that.’ He'll come out with red eyes and he'll be like, ‘Yeah, I guess there's no religious liberty anymore.’ That is exactly how it will turn out.”

“Think how insane that is, to not be able to choose what job you go on? To be able to choose, as you would think as a photographer, essentially choosing the subject of your art,” Stu reasoned. “You're not now allowed to choose the subject of your art? These are liberals advocating this? Let me make sure I understand.”

“I guess now the signs that say we reserve the right to refuse anyone at restaurants are completely out the window because you can't refuse service to anyone,” Pat added. “This is a private business being forced to do something against their religious liberties.”

Americans often have the attitude that if it doesn’t pick my pocket or break my leg, what difference does it make to me. But this ruling has implications far beyond New Mexico that should frighten any American who believes in religious freedom.

“That's what we came here for: religious freedom,” Glenn said emphatically. “And now the Supreme Court of New Mexico has just said, ‘there's a price to your citizenship.’ Look out. You don't want to pay for abortions? You're going to be soon, if this stands.”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
