Atheists take over Times Square with anti-Christmas billboard

The controversial group ‘American Atheists’ is at it again – this time taking over Times Square with their latest holiday message: Christmas is better without Christ. Yes, that’s right: The activist group known for posting its controversial messages on billboards across the nation, believes the “true meaning” of Christmas involves charity, family, friends, and food... but not Christ.

“There's a story now on TheBlaze about the campaign that's happening here [in NYC that] says: ‘Who needs Christ during Christmas? Nobody.’ I don't even understand. The word ‘Christ’ is in Christmas,” Glenn said exasperatedly on radio this morning. “You don't want to celebrate Christmas – that's your right. You don't have to celebrate Christmas… But to do a campaign like this and to come out and pee all over somebody is not necessary. It's just not necessary. It speaks volumes of what you are. You're not somebody that can coexist with others.”

You can watch the 15-second ad that is running three times an hour in Times Square below:

“This season is a great time of year for a hundred reasons — none of them having to do with religion,” American Atheists President David Silverman said in a press release. “This year, start a new tradition: Don’t go to church. You hate it, it’s boring; you probably only go because you feel guilty or obligated. Instead, spend more time with your family and friends — or volunteer. There are better uses of your time and money.”

“We all love this time of year. Christianity has been trying to claim ownership of the season for hundreds of years,” Silverman added. “But the winter solstice came first and so did its traditions. The season belongs to everybody.”

Glenn has long expressed his support of atheism in so far as he advocates the right for people to believe and practice whatever they would like. But this particular group crosses the line:

This is where I have problems with atheists. Look, you have every right to not celebrate Christmas, not to believe in God, and I support you. I absolutely support you. I'll stand shoulder to shoulder with you in saying I don't have to have a god. That's good. That's fine. I disagree with you, but that's my business. That's what my conscience tells me. That's what I believe. What you believe is your business. And as long as you are neither picking my pocket, nor breaking my leg, I have no problem with that.

[But] you're saying that religion is a negative force in the world. I'm sorry. Ask yourself if that indeed is true. Has the world had its issues with religious people? You bet… It's played a very dark role, but so has everything. How about the atheists:  Mao, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot? How about those guys… I'm not blaming their lack of God on their murderous regime.

[…]

When people try to tear others down, it's because they're afraid. There's one thing about speaking the truth. But when others just, quite honestly, put billboards up like that, I wouldn't put that up about atheists. It's the holiest holiday of the year for Christians. Why do you do that? Do you think you're going to attract any Christians? Do you think anybody who believes in God is going to listen to your message? No. All you're doing is putting a wedge between you and Christians.

Ultimately, this group has a right to express their opinions – however ignorant – but Glenn could not help but offer a quick lesson in what Christianity really is.

“What is a Christian? Someone who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ. That's what a Christian is,” Glenn concluded. “So maybe some Christians and some atheists have a distorted look at religion. Religion makes us better. And when religion stops making us better, it's not pure religion. It doesn't come from God. Faith, hope, and charity. Fear, unrighteous dominion, hatred, that doesn't come from God. That comes from another source. And if you don't believe in Satan, it's easy to tell you that other source is man.”

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

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.
