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.”

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."
