SURPRISE! New law will automatically make thousands of gay couples married - whether they agree or not!

What would you do if you woke up and found yourself suddenly married? That's a reality thousands of gay couples in Washington State will be facing when a  government decision will convert domestic partnerships to marriages. Not everyone is happy about it, including several prominent commentators in the LGBT community. TheBlaze's Faith Editor Billy Hallowell and writer Brandon Ambrosino, who has covered topics including gay marriage and sexuality for The Atlantic and The Huffington Post,  joined Glenn to disucss the story this topic.

Billy Hallowell  reported for TheBlaze Wednesday morning:

Starting June 30, all domestic partners who are not currently in the process of annulling of dissolving their unions will find themselves legally married.

While many happy couples are sure to welcome the change, it’s likely to create conundrums for couples not in the same circumstances they were when they registered their partnerships.

Couples that have unofficially separated will end up being recognized as married if they don’t take action before the June 30 deadline. Some couples who registered as domestic partners in Washington, but then moved to a state where gay unions are not recognized, have had to move back to Washington to dissolve their partnerships — and will likely need to do the same if they wish to block their impending marriages, the Times reported.

Hallowell said, "The state’s essentially saying you have a domestic partnership so you must want a marriage.  So yeah, let’s say you want to plan your marriage out.  You want to have a ceremony.  You want to pick the day.  Well, June 20, you are all being married on that day."

"Marriage means a lot to the two people who enter into it, so you pick your day.  You have that wedding day.  It’s very special to you.  You’re sort of taking that away from people, and you’re telling them we’re going to make the decision for you," Hallowell added.

Ambrosino, who is gay and identifies as conservative "on some issues", agreed. "I think that’s exactly right.  I mean, on the one hand, it is a signal of progress, and so I am sort of excited, but I also have hesitation.  I think marriage should be about intentionality."

"I want to pick the date.  I want to have my family here.  I want this to be a ceremony between me and my partner and in front of my friends and family and before God.  And so I think it totally just says intention doesn’t matter anymore," he added.

Ambrosino has been attacked by some on the left for his viewpoints, "A lot of the criticism I get from gay activists is that I’m too much of a hetero normative thinker.  A lot of queer thinkers reject the institution of marriage, but they still want all the benefits that the institution allows for, so some of them don’t want the word marriage, so they would prefer a domestic partnership, you know?  So we have to think about all of these questions."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
