Liberty University under fire for inviting Glenn to speak at school’s convocation ceremony

Last month, Glenn delivered the convocation address at Liberty University in Virginia. Glenn’s speech wove together both history and faith in an attempt to illustrate how “times are changing.” Liberty has come under fire for inviting Glenn to speak, as certain outlets interpreted Glenn’s words as a “sermon” based in Mormon theology. On radio this morning, Glenn defended the school.

“Liberty University is being smeared, absolutely smeared, and they're being smeared by religious people, people who claim to be followers of Christ,” Glenn said. “Now, I've read the Bible several times, and I just can't find the place where Jesus hates. I can't find that where he is not embracing people. I can't find the place where he says, ‘You'll know a tree by the fruit.’ I just can't find that anywhere.”

While Liberty has stood by its decision to invite Glenn to speak, telling Religious News Service “convocation is an opportunity for students to hear from people of all faiths and from all walks of life,” that has not quieted the naysayers.

“Liberty University asked me to speak, and every time they do, they get hammered… Most Christians are not like this at all. But there's this group of people that have a problem with David Barton and me and everyone else. I really don't care. I really don't care,” Glenn said. “But when you take on an organization like Liberty University, I think you really should really think things through.”

Glenn has stated on several occasions that he would send his children to Liberty without hesitation because of the education it offers.

"Liberty University is one of the greatest universities in the world… It is in fact one of only two universities I would consider sending my children to because I know they will get a deep understanding of God,” Glenn said. “Now, how could Glenn Beck say he would send his child to Liberty University? He's a Mormon. You know what… because I don't think my children are morons. Do you think your children are morons?”

Recent news stories certainly suggest we are living in a society that is less and less tolerant of opposing points of view, and Glenn believes this outcry is just the latest iteration of intolerance.

“I want to make it really, really super clear,” Glenn said. “There is no difference between the people who are currently trying to take down Liberty University because they're not ‘Christian enough’ or me because I'm not ‘a Christian’ – there's no difference between you and the people who are trying to run other people out of the square,” Glenn said. “We are turning into a land of monsters. We really are.”

“I look at every single lover of light and truth as my ally, my friend, my brother. I look at everyone who is my enemy as my brother. I don't care what you say your belief is. I don't care what your lifestyle is,” he continued. “I invite you to join me, join others of multiple faiths, never asking anyone to change their faith, but asking you to strengthen your faith, whatever it is – unless it's saying kill people, burn their books, shut them up, torture them, imprison them, kill them. If that's what your faith says, I want nothing to do with you. If your faith says: Learn about love, learn about goodness, learn about the power of faith, learn about the miracles of God, don't trust in the arm of flesh but trust in the spirit, I'd love to meet you. And I'd love to be around you.”

Ultimately, Glenn explained that he is not afraid of Liberty University, and he is glad that Liberty has proven it is not afraid to expose its students to a diversity of viewpoints.

“Here's a Mormon that isn't afraid of Liberty University. I would never ask them to teach anything about my theology. That's my job. That's my children's job. That's our job as an individual, to seek out truth and to find it and then to live by it,” Glenn concluded. “I'm not afraid of any man telling my children anything. My children have a good enough head on their shoulders, and they have a strong enough support group to straighten them out if they happen to go awry. And even though my kids at times have gone awry, if I have done my job as a parent, they will find their way back. I don't look for boogiemen everywhere.”

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
