The American Bible Challenge host Jeff Foxworthy plays ‘Christ or Klingon?’

Legendary comedian Jeff Foxworthy stopped by the program today to talk about the upcoming season of his runaway hit show The American Bible Challenge and some of the hilarious new segments added this year. One of the most promising is ‘Christ or Klingon,’ in which contestants must determine if something is from the Bible or from the Star Trek ‘Klingon’ language. Surprisingly, it’s actually harder than you might think.

“The one and only Jeff Foxworthy is with us now, host of the American Bible Challenge,” Glenn said. “My family and I watched this… And we love it. We really love it. [It’s] something the whole family can watch together and enjoy.”

The American Bible Challenge has been a huge success for GSN, which is a non faith-based network. The game show is the highest rated original series in the history of the network and proves that there is a strong and devoted audience for family-friendly programming.

The third season is set to kick off Thursday, May 22, and with a new season comes a new set of categories. Perhaps the most intriguing is ‘Christ or Klingon,’ which asks competitors to identify a something as being from the Bible or from Star Trek.

“I love this new category,” Glenn said. “Christ or Klingon.”

“You know what, we try to keep these things fun. And so one of the writers came up with this thing,” Jeff said. “Of course, I’ve got this accent. And if you ever saw my note cards, it's just phonetic pronunciations of these Old Testament names. So I'm always butchering them. One of the new categories is ‘Christ or Klingon,’ and they have to tell us if it's from the Bible or the Star Trek movies… My first thought was ‘Well, that's not going to work.’ But it's so much harder than you think it is. You hear this name and you have no idea whether that it is somebody's name in the Book of Ruth or if it's from Star Trek.”

Part of what makes the show so fun is the contestants that partake. Jeff explained that finding great participants who differ from some of the preconceived notions of religious people was really important.

“That was a real deliberate thing. I wanted it to be from day one, if you were on the outside and you had this preconceived notion what people of faith look like, we wanted to blow that out of the water,” he explained. “And so on this show, you'll have nuns playing next to tattoo artists playing next to rodeo cowboys and women from the roller derby. We've had Jewish priests on. We have had a team of Mormon moms. And yeah, we just wanted to blow up all those stereotypes.”

The success of The American Bible Challenge has really proven how mainstream well-produced faith-based programming can be. Glenn believes that speaks to a larger movement in this country, in which values and principles are once again in vogue and people from all sides of the political spectrum are coming together.

“I think you're right. One of the things I always told my kids is: I don't know anybody that's self-focused that's a happy person. And the people that get the fullness out of life are people who are other-focused. I think that's coming around… And I do think in the end, goodness always wins,” Jeff said. “And I think that's why this show works. You know, it shows people, who aren't getting anything out of it themselves, just people that kind of realize, ‘Hey, I am deeply loved and because of that – the outpouring of that is: I'm going to turn around and love others.’ That is a full life. And I think that's what Christ was talking about when he said, ‘I come so that they may have life.’ It's not just talking about Heaven after you die. It's talking about now, getting the most out of life.”

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?
