Noah director claims there are very clear environmental themes in the Book of Genesis

While Glenn didn’t find the environmental themes of Noah as offensive as some of the film’s other plot points, Darren Aronofsky’s action-packed movie adaptation of Noah’s Ark has come under fire for inserting the modern-day climate debate into a Biblical story. During an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, however, Aronofsky defended his decision, claiming there are actually clear environmental themes in the Book of Genesis.

“Did you hear the interview with Aronofsky? This is the director of Noah,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Think of this: A week ago, Paramount studios was trying to convince everybody this was not an environmental activist kind of film. Listen to this.”

Below is a portion of Amanpour’s interview with Aronofsky:

For anyone remotely familiar with Genesis, Aronofsky’s interpretation is loose at best. While Aronofsky views the stories of Adam and Eve and Noah’s Ark as cautionary tales, so to speak, he fails to recognize the theme at the crux of the stories.

“So what is their discussion… He's saying this is the ‘first cautionary tale.’ 'You are going to just get destroyed.’ ‘You're wicked,’” Glenn explained. “Instead of diagnosing the wickedness, instead of saying, ‘We've got to change the hearts of people,’ he says, ‘We've got to stop people from polluting because this will happen again.’ No, it won't. Will we do damage to the earth? Yes. Will it heal itself? Yes.”

As Glenn explained, the Bible actually outlines the threat of catastrophic events and what will happen. Aronofsky, however, doesn’t seem to have read that part.

“Hey, Mr. Aronofsky, that was also talked about in the Bible. When the people get wicked, there will be wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, there will be volcanoes, and upheavals, but let your heart not be afraid because all of these things have to come to pass,” Glenn concluded. “Look out. Trouble is coming. But instead of going to see an environmental movie, what do you say we just change our lives and start doing the things we are supposed to do.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
