WATCH: Bill Maher defends Christianity during interview with Charlie Rose

Bill Maher is a progressive atheist who rarely has anything positive to say about any religious group. During an interview with PBS’ Charlie Rose, however, Maher defended Christians by drawing a stark distinction between Christianity and Islam. On radio this morning, Glenn praised Maher’s willingness to shun political correctness and speak candidly on the issue.

During his national address last Wednesday, President Obama said there is no relation between Islam and the Islamic State. Rose seemingly agreed with the President’s assertion, but Maher took issue with that claim – and Rose’s view of Christianity.

“There are illiberal beliefs that are held by vast numbers of Muslim people,” Maher said.

“A vast number of Christians too,” Rose interjected.

“No, that’s not true. Not true. Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion you should be killed for it,” Maher said emphatically. “Vast numbers of Christians do not treat women as second-class citizens. Vast numbers of Christians do not believe if you draw a picture of Jesus Christ you should get killed for it.”

“Does ISIS do Khmer Rouge-like activities where they kill people indiscriminately who aren't just like them? Yes. And would most Muslim people in the world do that or condone that? No. But most Muslim people in the world do condone violence just for what you think,” he continued. “There's a Pew pole in Egypt done a few years ago. 82% I think it was said stoning was the appropriate punishment for adultery. Over 80% thought death was the appropriate punishment for leaving the Muslim religion.”

As Glenn explained, the Muslims Rose knows, or Glenn knows, or average Americans know likely condemn ISIS and other terrorist groups who commit heinous acts in the name of Islam. But few Americans understand how Muslims in other parts of the world feel about these things.

“Charlie Rose is saying, ‘I know Muslims.’ Yeah, so do I,” Glenn said. “[But] we don't know the vast majority of Muslims that are living in Egypt… We don't know the vast majority of Muslims who are attending these mosques with radicalized clerics all over the world. Those polls are accurate. It was one of the most stunning and right things I've ever heard Bill Maher say, and I thank him for it.”

Speaking so openly about his opinion of Islam and Christianity is certainly not going to curry him any favor with the left. For that reason, Stu found Maher’s remarks particularly important.

“Bill Maher, great, I'm glad he said it… Many others have said similar things,” Stu said. “Although… it's harder for him maybe to do that, so you should give him credit for that.”

While Glenn recognizes he and Maher fundamentally disagree on a lot of things, he would be interested in having a conversation with the guy.

“Yes, it makes funny television for Bill Maher to say crazy things. It makes good television for me to say crazy things. Good… At the end of our life, is that what we're doing? Because that's not what I want to do,” Glenn concluded. “I know exactly what I want to do… I know what my pivot point is. Bill, can you find your way to a pivot point? Can you find your way to saying, ‘You know what? There are good people that I don't agree with.’ Maybe we should start talking to each other because the really super bad guys are starting to come out.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
